When you were a really small child and you were watching TV and a you commercial came on, did anyone else say “I want that” out loud? Like announcing it to whoever was there or even just announcing it to yourself? Because I have a very vivid memory of being in preschool and watching TV and every kid would do this, including me.
I just had a grown man tell me to “go make me a sandwich” as I was doing his pourover
I told him I didn’t understand what he meant because we’re a coffee shop, and he was like “oh it’s a joke” and I said I “didn’t get it” and he went “it’s funny because you’re a woman working in a kitchen”
And I just stared at him until he got how stupid he sounded
let them feel their ignorance burn into their souls
Michael, do you remember, you specifically told me to only bring one sheet of paper? You said it only takes one sheet to make a difference. And I said, “Are you sure Michael?” And you said “Pam! Pam! Pam!” And then you sneezed in my tea, and then you said, “Don’t worry, it’s just allergies.” Do you remember that?
