The next time a man starts yelling at you, cut him off and tell him you just can’t talk to him when he’s being so emotional.
I have done this and can confirm that is a LOT of fun to watch them implode afterward.
Bonus points: Tell them you think it’s cute when they get so angry.
Extra credit: Tell them to “calm down.”
"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin
This man was a pure genius.
The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.
Tatiana is always the least important person in the room – in her eyes. She is the mother hen. She is forever telling others to please go before her at the lunch table, always checking in and asking if everyone has all that they need, always asking how you are feeling and how your mother is, always noticing when someone is down and picking them back up, always making you laugh with a funny face right when you need it, always honest with advice and encouragement, and always the hardest working and likely the most tired person in the room but never showing it. She is a true lead. She leads the cast and crew by example in hard work, dedication, professionalism, manners, encouragement, love, and absolute childlike fun and silliness.
