I realized something today. I realized that I'm a shallow and judgemental asshole. No, don't try to defend me. It's true.
How did I figure this out? Well, you see, there's this guy that I see relatively frequently around and about during the course of my days. He's kind of a dumpy guy and he always wears t-shirts that are tucked into his pants. His t-shirts always say inspirational things like "Make It Happen" or "Dream. Believe. Achieve." Anyway, I've seen this guy around and everytime I see one of his inspirational t-shirts tucked into his pants, I find myself trying to figure out if he's 1.) a hopeless nerd with no fashion sense, or 2.) retarded. But you know what? He's neither! Turns out, he's simply foreign. Option 3. And this is where I realized that I was a judgemental asshole. I found myself trying to figure what was wrong with this guy that gave him such a lousy taste in t-shirts - completely aware of the fact that whichever answer it would be, I'd inevitably just think "Oooohhh ... that explains it."
What is that? Am I really that freakin' shallow and stupid? Maybe we all are. Here's a game. See how you do. The the rules are simple: I'm going to show you three pictures. All you have to do is tell me which of these pictures shows
- a group of retarded people,
- a group of nerds, or
- a group of foreigners
Leave your answers in the comments and I'll give you the answers tomorrow.
