I encounter so many "I'm better than you" types that it makes me sick.
Seems like every person I meet or am introduced to these days has that "Look at how fucking cool I am and you can never measure up" stance.
I sure as hell don't take it and I call it out immediately.

I often find myself apologizing to my friends for doing so and their response is usually "Naw dude it's cool. You just said what we were all thinking".

One of these days my mouth is gonna get me knocked the fuck out.  :lulz: and I'm kinda ok with it.

Yeah. My barman at the pub I often drink at on tuesdays was acting that way to me the other day.

Great guy, have known him for years (in a barman/ patron kind of way, anyway).

When I walked out last tuesday, that's the last time I'll ever be on his premises.

I hate the "too cool for school" attitude.  Drives me batshit insane.  If I wanna be SILLY, and it EMBARRASSES you, then FUCK OFF.  Yes, I've had this problem before.  This is the stance I've learned to take, fortunately.  Just too late for some pain, unfortunately.

Life IS too fucking short to put up with people who are shitty.

This.

YEP YEP!!!

Not quite a syndrome. I just speak my mind before thinking about consequences. I know it's coming, and I'll probably deserve it.

This is gonna sound terrible, and that's probably because it is, but...

I have no problem being friends with stupid people as long as they don't continually say stupid shit. I have an unfortunate tendency to make fun of those who do.

Yeah, but there's stupid, and stupid stupid. People who are stupid because they are too lazy to think or bother to learn anything, and people who are stupid because they aren't so bright, but still try to learn stuff. The latter are fine, because they genuinely  try to get their heads around stuff.. The former are usually arsepipes, because they can't be bothered to think like a human, and think that's ok.

Exactly. After all, it's not that difficult to do a little research before playing expert on a subject.
