Square Root of Stupid?
Everyone at work refers to me as "stupid" or more exactly, the "square root of stupid". What does this mean, and should I be offended? Can I actually be a square root of stupid? My woman thinks so. How about you? Sincerely - Dazed & Confused in Pittsburgh
Don’t you listen to them! First of all, there is no such thing as “the square root of stupid”, although I must admit it’s a very clever barb. Obviously, you are not stupid at all. For starters, you found my extremely obscure blog so that’s pretty wily of you. Also, you were able to comment on my blog & you have an email address. There are CEO’s of major worldwide corporations that can’t check their own email. Einstein couldn’t even remember to tie his shoes most days.
You need to surround yourself with people who aren’t jerks so that they don’t destroy your self-esteem any more. It’s bad enough to take it from your coworkers but your woman should be more supportive. I say kick her to the curb & find a lady that appreciates you & acknowledges your good qualities. And tell her that she should be glad you even have a job because you could be mooching off of her while you try to start your lame rap career, a la K. Fed & Britney.
Feel free to stick up for yourself to these bullies & send them to me if you think they need to be straightened out. And remember the immortal words of Stuart Smalley, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and gosh darn it, people like me.”
