There’s this kid that I have to talk to on a regular basis, he’s about 24 years old. At first, I cut him some slack for saying incredibly stupid things and being generally annoying. I was like, “kids ill be kids.”
But then I remembered that at 24, I was a schoolteacher working in Uzbekistan, doing projects to help my community. Not to say I was selfless (still not that!), but definitely not an obnoxious asshole who thinks I’m the Master of the Universe.
It makes him more annoying now that I can’t use that excuse.
