147

'well, you don't have to be condescending about it'

actually,
if you look at the empirical evidence,
I do have to be condescending.

when I wasn't being condescending,
you had no idea what I was talking about.

it wasn't until I got condescending,
dumbed things down like I was
talking to a child
that you had any idea
what I said.

following that line of evidence
there is a positive correlation between
me being condescending
and you understanding.

'what?'

when I talk to you like
you're an idiot,
you understand what I'm saying,

but you complain
that I'm talking to you like
you're an idiot.

when I talk to you like
you're not an idiot,
you have no idea what I'm saying,

and you complain
that I'm speaking words
that you don't understand.

'can't you do that without being condescending?'

hypothetically,
but it's too much work.
