    People have an enraging/hilarious habit of not seeing themselves for who they are. For all they know, they embody the very type of person they hate and can never own up to it, so instead they sugarcoat their own personalities to make sure that they never seem like the villain. Of course, another person cut from the exact same cloth will seem like a total asshole to them. Are YOU one of these people? Here's what I mean:

    They:
    ...get blackout drunk at social get-togethers, make complete assholes of themselves and humiliate them and everybody around them.
    You:
    ...are the life of the party.

    They:
    ...abuse their authority as a supervisor and shamelessly push their co-workers around just to make themselves feel special.
    You:
    ...show true leadership strength and quality.

    They:
    ...let their kids run around in public like mad, screaming primates and ignorantly tune them out despite the fact they are obnoxious little shits.
    You"
    ...believe in educating your children with the freedom of choice and let them enjoy the thrills of discovery.

    They:
    ...are bitchy, fault-finding nit pickers that find negativity in everything that you do and can never be satisfied.
    You:
    ...have an eye for detail.

    They:
    ...bang everything on two legs, pissing on the joy of real love and/or a quality relationship while thinking this single life ride will last forever.
    You:
    ...are popular.

    Focus: Classic examples of "They vs. You". Go.

    Alt-Focus: What personal experiences have you had with these types of people?

    They are: cruel and nasty
    You are: forthright and honest

    They are: lazy wastes of space
    You are: taking time to enjoy life

    They are: creepy stalkers
    You are: following your heart

    They are: trying too hard to get attention at the gym/beach
    You are: wearing what makes you comfortable

    They are: losers who spend all their time on the internet
    You are: winners who enjoy the occasional distraction that posting on a messageboard for hours each day provides.

    This really should be structured like all the tumblers with gifs: "What I think I look like"..."What I really look like"

    They:
    ...are emotionally unavailable and annoyingly not serious about most things.
    You:
    ...are coy, clever, and sarcastically witty.

    They are angrily yelling at strangers on the internet.

    I am merely elucidating the finer points of a well-thought-out but obvious perspective.

    "They"
    Put their nose where they don't belong, try to teach me how to life my life knowing absolutely nothing, and are know-it-all assholes
    "I"
    Give fair, objective advice and happen to offer it before you realize it was needed. I know a lot because I read more than silly messageboards.

    It's really quite simple.

    They think they're right.
    I know I'm right.

    They are sluts.

    I pursue what I want.

    They couldn't make a decision to save their fucking lives.

    I am in an uncertain situation I've never been in before, have a lack of information, and I'm really fucking trying to make sense of this, okay?

    They are wine/beer snobs.

    I just like sharing all the information about wine/beer I know with my friends.

    They talk about their jobs all the time because they have nothing else going on in their empty husks of lives.

    I have a job that people love to ask me about.

    He is a sarcastic douche who doesn't understand the time and place for that kind of talk.

    I have a dark sense of humour.

    They are lazy, unmotivated, and unproductive.
    I am highly ambitious with a slight procrastination problem.

    They are stoners.
    I just smoke pot every day.

    They are shut-ins.
    I choose not to go out.



    This thread starts out fun then just becomes painfully eye-opening. I'm going to the gym right now, fuck...

    They:
    are poor losers, who argue over every little rule. Don't they realize this is Rec D (insert sport). Dream's over man.

    I:
    am competitive

    They are creepy stalkers.
    I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited but I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.

    They need to move on.
    I hoped that they'd see my face and be reminded that for me, it isn't over.

    They are passive-aggressive and needy.
    I wish nothing but the best, for them.

    They: are for the most part, middle American sheeple, wasting too much of their time posting inane and thoughtless drivel.

    You: only occasionally surf in to post really funny or wise thoughts that you don't fully have time to think out.

    They are prone to committing the fundamental attribution error.

    I'm smarter than that.
