I don’t know if I’m having a quarter life crisis or if I’m overreacting like the middle class white girl I am, but I am just so sick of people in general. I’m sick of the self-righteous attitude that everyone has, I’m sick of the self-entitlement and the fact that we’re brought up to think we’re special, when we really aren’t all different individuals who have different ideas and opinions.
I get that life is supposed to be special and I get that yolo and all that, but really, most people are living a pointless boring existence that is only validated by social media, Instagram filters and countless pointless children. Yes I am guilty of Instagram and Facebook, but it’s not my life. Yes, I am guilty of using film photography and developing my own black and white in my bathroom, but I do it because I want to document my life, and because I know what I’m doing. I’m not doing this because its a hipster fad, but because I enjoy it and because I’m too poor/can’t be arsed going to a photo lab that will probably ruin my photos.
Where did this rant come from you may ask? Well. I’ve worked in “customer service” for a number of years and recently I have started working in a call center. I do enjoy the people I work with, and 80% of the customers. However, the amount of racist, sexist, homophobic and generally offensive comments that have been directed towards me and other members of staff is really starting to get to me.
For example, your Internet had been down for 5 seconds, lets throw some money at you. Oh, you’re angry? Lets throw some more money at you, therefore perpetuating the idea that people are OWED money because they’ve been MISTREATED and oh my god I’m so INCONVIENIENCED that you need to throw money at me until I’m satisfied.
Fucking hell. Sorry. I’m a bit drunk…
