File Under: Supportive Friends

Set-up: I was talking to a friend about some concerns I have over working pretty much full time, managing my two classes this semester and getting an 'A' in both.

Me: "... and then there's Chemistry, which I think is going to be a real nightmare..."
Friend: "But aren't you just taking Basic Chemistry?"
Me: "..."

Thanks, asshole.

So I basically got a D- in chemistry in high school and that was WITH after school tutoring from the teacher and some "help" from my classmate on tests. I think the only reason I didn't fail is my teacher was retiring and thought what the hell...

Mixing drinks is the extent of my knowledge of chemistry...

Mr. Shain said...

did i ever mention i took THREE YEARS of chemistry... because i did... for a degree in philosophy... super use of time, not to mention useful in life outside of school.

here's how the same conversation would have gone if you were talking to me:

Cherry: "... and then there's Chemistry, which I think is going to be a real nightmare..."

Mr. Shain: "Yeah, you are taking Basic Chemistry?"

Cherry: "..."

Chemistry was one of my favorite classes in High School, hate to admit, but having gone through the whole work and school full time I know how difficult it will be.

Chin up, you are smart cookie, you will succeed I am sure.

Wow, I'm shocked he didn't slap you in the face right afterwards. Really supportive.

You should have asked 'friend' to list all the periodic elements and then break down Erbium before acting like a smug shithead. And them bitch slapped him/her when they messed up.

I feel ya. I have ex-friends like this who think it's funny to tell me that lawyers are jerks. Hilarious! I've stopped being even remotely nice about it - so should you.

Chemistry is going to be no walk in the park, my friend. You're going to be a busy B, but that doesn't excuse you from Bleggers!!!

LP actually asked me if it was me you were talking about. Thankfully it was not. I hope. Was it me?

I am sensing a lot of anger from the Cherry lately. Do you need a hug?

Oh, and Chemistry bites it big time.
