Yesterday, I got pissed. It was nothing special, but I got my tail in a knot about the treatment of one person by another.
And as I later went over the whole situation in my mind, half-wishing that I might be more 'serene' and far-sighted and in-perspective, an observant and 'adult' mind observed, "You do not suffer fools gladly." Despite knowing "see a fool, be a fool," still, "You do not suffer fools gladly."
And it was in the face of this serene-as-butter moralist that a second tart-tongued observer made himself known:
"I've got enough trouble with my own damned fool. Why should I add you to the list?"
