Self Centered Intolerance Not Tolerated

Dear Baba Rumcake,
I feel like the older i get, the more people get on my nerves. I don’t know if this has to do with my age (27 tomorrow..ughh) or my personality. I’m very introverted. I generally like people, but I notice that I have a shorter tolerance for them and being around people – especially groups or crowds has a way of totally draining my energy.
No Energy To Mingle

Dear NETM,
So at the ripe old age of 27 you cannot tolerate people. How very quaint! What the hell are you going to do when you reach 60 or even 50, move to the hills or become a recluse?

Right off the bat the answer would be your personality not your age is the problem. You are not old enough yet to have dealt with that many people to hate them already. Nothing could have colored your view so much that you cannot tolerate being around them.

Yet, you find yourself intolerant and getting drained. What are they asking of you these people? Are they asking you to do their jobs? Are they asking you to care for their children? Are they asking you to clean their toilets? What? Maybe your time for a chat. Or a few moments to smile and say hell.

It is obvious from your remarks that you are a selfish self centered person who wants to be left alone and live in a world where your needs can be met with the least interference or dealings with others.

Unfortunately we live in this world and the schmucks that service you are also people and deserve your respect and tolerance. So, get some prescription drug to get the edge off or better yet here is some DDT to go after and get the bug out of your…..never mind.

Blessings on the patient soul buried inside your intolerant self,
Baba Rumcake
