Tolerating Intolerance

I cant stand so and so!
So and so makes my skin crawl!
Hes just so dumb!
I cant be in the same room as her!

I can be guilty of that kind of statement. But I hate the arrogance behind intolerance of stupidity. Well, alleged stupidity. My brother does it all the time .Oops. Guess I need to learn to tolerate his intolerance.😀

mixing and talking to us stupid people? If its not a stupid

Sorry, some stupid people don't group, grouping can cause unintentional consequence, and unintentional groping can cause a custodial offence.

Re: Tolerating Intolerance

People just love saying " oh what a stupid dumbass". It elevates their status somehow. My brother only ever taught elementary school yet he feels qualified to call so many people stupid . Its not like he set the world on fire with his intelligence.

It always was relevant precious - I read it when I was 10 - last year at junior school and it made me think, which was the idea. Important messages are easy to understand when they are wrapped up in a fairy tale. I bet many kids started out reading it thinking it was purely a story about animals.

Hate is an overused word.
Apostrophes work.
