We are sitting in the lunch room at work, my Aunt, our workmate M and I. We’re conversing about workplace politics. According to my Aunt, because I try not to assume the worst in people, that makes me naive. M says,
It’s because she hasn’t experienced the shit in life yet.
I can’t quite grasp whether I feel more annoyed or amused. No appropriate response comes to mind. So I just laugh. Rather sarcastically, I might add.
I haven’t experienced shit? Really? I haven’t experienced shit?
Ahh, M, if only you knew.
It just keeps flying at me and never ceases to stop.
