Nostalgia, Selfish

People I hate

I am done working at my improv club. Through my time there I had to keep myself from yelling at the customers by writing what I disliked about my customers on little post-it notes. I kept those on my mirror so that I could wake up and see them to motivate me every day.

Here are all the people I hate:

-People who don’t know what a paleontologist is

-People who wear beret’s without irony

-People who suggest quotes from “Old School” to the improv comedians

-People who laugh because they know the reference even though there was no joke aspect

-People who suggest “lazily” as an adjective

-People who come back to talk to the improvers and brag about their experience doing improv

-People who give suggestions of things that the improvers could do better

-People who have domestic squabbles when I come to the table.

-People who wait to make their decisions until I get there meaning we stand in silence for two minutes waiting for them to order a water.

-People who shake my hand

-People who tell me jokes that I can’t hear
