recently I got a new job at a restaurant, and the other day I had to learn how to count out the register when my shift is over. it’s kind of complicated and very intimidating as an ADHDer—so I took one of the envelopes on which you are supposed to write everything and made a guide for myself showing what goes where and when you subtract this from that and so on.
when the owner saw it he took me aside and began to explain, “The reason I made the envelope is to keep track of how much money is made…”
and I said, “I know what it’s for. I get that.”
and he said, “OK, it just seems like you’re confused.”
and so I explained, “Math isn’t my strong point, so I just made a guide to remember everything because it’s a lot.”
to which he replied, “It’s just simple subtraction.”
he was super condescending and made me feel shitty. I wanted so badly to just be able to explain, “I have ADHD! What you may find easy can be quite difficult for me, especially when I’m new to it and I’m in a very stimulating environment, so please back the fuck up off my shit okay.”
Why are old people so damn nosey?
cause they can be. cause nobody says “fuck off, old lady!” they just kinda patiently let old people do whatever the fuck they want.
my mom takes ruthless advantage of this. i love it.
I told this one to fuck off, and she was really flustered.
She accused me of faking my limp and lying, so fuck her
in my experience some old people tend to have a sense of entitlement based on the whole “respect your elders” biz. like, they are old therefore they are wise and experienced and everyone including total strangers should listen/defer to them because they know best.
And I noticed something…
so this is the first time we see the king of Atlantis, right?
Then he says this while his wife is drawn into the heart of Atlantis:
Notice how he’s not looking away. The next time we see the king, he is blind.
DOES THIS MEAN HE LOOKED INTO THE HEART OF ATLANTIS, RISKED LOSING HIS SIGHT, JUST SO HE COULD SEE HIS WIFE ONE LAST TIME??????
JUST FUCKING STOP RIGHT THERE
CANT STOP WONT STOP
