Rant: being bad at something doesn’t make you special

Pet peeve: people who think it’s funny or cute that they suck at something.

If someone says mean things followed by “sorry, I don’t have a filter, lol!” then they’re still just as much of a jerk.

Many people could get through life without learning to cook or do laundry. But “I never learned how to wash my own clothes, isn’t that crazy?!” is an unhealthy thing to be proud of.

Yeah, you hate exercise. So do most adults. Lots of them do it anyway instead of sitting around joking about how much they hate it.

If you’re bad at something, you can work on fixing it or you can work on living with it. But it shouldn’t be socially acceptable to brag about it. That’s a slippery slope.
