I almost flipped a table today.
Like, you don’t even know.
I got so angry I felt my heart about to explode.
It was really bad.
See, there’s this kid in my program who always wants to discuss politics, and this is the second time I’ve gotten sucked into it, so to be fair, it is partially my fault.
Basically, he said that it’s “too bad” millions of Americans are out of work, and they should stop expecting the government to do anything about it. Also, he said that yes, NJ has no money, but it’s not because the money is misused. I was so incredibly angry. I hate talking politics, but notably with people who are so detached from the reality of so many people, and keep refusing to acknowledge it.
It took me forever and some chocolate cake to calm down.
Mind you, this whole conversation was going on in French.
