Back on the topic of stories. I really don’t want to get too much into the stories people tell, because I feel that its a pretty mundane topic. But, there is one story that annoys me almost everytime I hear it.
The back home story is one where the teller states how difficult/better/complex their experience was in their original place or origin. In university, I often hear this story from people that come from other countries or transferred from another school.
What upsets me most about this story, is that people often tell me is when they are fucking up. If you learned conics in elementary school Japan please tell me why you haven’t memorized the quadratic equation. If you learned exergy calculations at your first year of Harvard then tell me why your fucking up now.
Give me a break and go back to your special place.
