Laugavegurinn, show me what you’ve got
being told i was smart and above average from a young age was probably one of the worst things to happen to me because now i have a complex and question my entire existence when i dont excel at something right away
I’ve been in Academically gifted, honors, and AP classes my entire life and now whenever I try to do something and I’m not awesome at it or I make less than an A on a project, it’s like my entire life is falling apart.
I’m “twice exceptional”… except my parents only ever told me about the gifted part and then threw me into normal school where even regular gifted kids have a hard time. So it’s not even a “now I have a complex” thing. I’ve had a complex since I was seven.

Make your own syrupy bean water you entitled ass
Woah there. If I pay for my syrupy bean water then I’m not being entitled if I want it made in a timely manner.
The issue being that some Sbux customers think all “chatter” that doesn’t directly involve them is “idle”. It’s gotten to the point where we can’t ask questions like “Could you grab more frap base from the back?” without some kid wailing “BUT I HAVE CLAAAASSSS IN TWOOOOO MINUTENESS, STOP TALKING AND MAKE MY SUPER COMPLICATED, 3-MINUTE DRINK RIGHT NOOOOOW” (because, almost without fail, people in a hurry order something that’d take longer to make than the time they have even if we dropped everything and served only them—which is where the entitled part plays in, because that’s exactly what they expect).
How about you wake up earlier or make your own damn coffee. Seriously, I will pay you to not come into my store anymore.
