People are dumb. But I still try to talk to them like they're smart on a one-on-one basis. Benefit of the doubt. This ends up in me being disappointed and them being confused, more often than not.
Occasionally, I'll smart-talk to someone who can smart-talk back, and then I know I found a friend.
Or am I the one who's dumb, and the dumb ones are smart, and we're not speaking the same language? If so, then all my friends are dumb as well.
If you're my friend, please tell me: which are you?
