This is such a truism. When you’re annoyed at people, there’s always someone who wants to chum with you about how annoying everyone is, not realizing that they are too.
Really you just want to be alone, the annoyance is build-up and not specific.
Totally inspired by the few times (such as on Mother’s or Father’s day) when us kids would make breakfast-in-bed for the parents. And then stare at them so they had to smile while they ate it ALL.
I always felt that I could be more assured in being snarky and flippant if I had a thug. I think Vachel feels the same way, except he actually does something about it.
