You know, it isn’t just that the stuff they order us to pay attention to in school is boring. It’s that most of it is trivial.
When I was, oh, around nine, one of the main things on my mind was sharks and the, as I then believed, exceedingly high chance that all of us would be eaten by them. Plane crashes and large dogs also loomed large in my thoughts.
My teachers spent zero time addressing what to do about angry dogs, hungry sharks or crashing planes.
How was I supposed to pay attention to shit like fractions when my life was in peril from all the dogs and sharks and stuff all over the place?
don’t u hate it when u wake up and ur awake
Me: (at fast food drivethrough) And a packet of salt please.
Person in car with me: They put salt on the fries.

declaring “this is the bad place” every time you are even slightly inconvenienced is peak humor
I’m browsing around on Youtube and I saw a video with a title like, “Foods You Should Avoid If You Have Anxiety Or Depression”.
I didn’t watch the video, because I already know the answer is “foods mosellegreen likes and eats on a regular basis”.
I deeply, deeply resent having to watch a commercial before Fandango will let me watch a movie preview. Why should I have to endure a commercial before I can watch ANOTHER commercial?!?

Me at 30: I’m 30.
The 40something-year-old Woman I’m On A Date With: Oh, you’re still a baby.
Me: …And you’re on a date with me. What does that say about you?
Me at 47, post-menopause: I’m middle-aged.
My aunt, who is my mother’s age: You’re a KID!
