I’ve had even less tolerance for positivity and inspirational memes recently than I normally do. And that’s not much tolerance to begin with.
Let Me Be Sarcastic!
Inspirational speakers are my least favourite people. I remember someone in recent years was talking about can’t really meaning won’t and that you would jump off a cliff (or whatever the fuck) if it was for your family or the right amount of money or whatever. It was boring, parts were abelist and the entire thing just downright irritated me.
Maybe I already have the attitude that can’t is won’t, and that I will tell people that. It’s possible. I have a finely tuned bullshit meter, which is actually a very positive thing to have. Though I’m sure an inspirational speaker would hate me for saying that.
Sometimes some people find it healthy to snark. To be sarcastic. To let our inner bullshit meters fly free with semi-reckless abandon. I’m sure I’ve seen links to research that says good stuff about sarcasm. But here’s the thing: I don’t care what the research says right now. I know I like letting snark out so that’s what matters to me…
Is there such a thing as a reality speaker? For those of us who get the quick crankies with inspiration and realise that life always has ups and downs so howzabout we just deal in some flipping reality? Maybe I’ll start a reality speaker’s business 🙂
How do you feel about inspirational speakers?
