Cannot Bear Stupidity!!
I really love to talk with intelligent people...meaning ones who can actually follow my conversation without my having to give them the definition of the words in my vocabulary. I don't look down on the ones who can't , but have a hard time getting close to them...it's just way too much work for this lazy girl!!
I feel I should insert an example of what I mean:
A couple of years ago, I was at work talking with a coworker and my boss. Both are adult women, one in her mid thirties, and one in her sixties. Both had school aged children, and both were considered "knowledgable" by the populace at large. My boss was scanning the front of the local newspaper, when she asked a question. "What IS "no child left behind, anyway?". My coworker looked at her, (I was with a customer, at the time), and said, "You know....when all the kids go to get on the bus and the driver forgets one". My boss considers this and says, "I don't think they should be leaving any kids behind"........
I could not even bring myself to comment. I was horrified at the willful ignorance.
