Reasons why I love Frances so much..
Am I the only one who thinks this is ridiculous? People have problems, okay? Like maybe their problems seem somehow less important because there are people with bigger ones but hell, there’s ALWAYS someone with bigger problems and you know what? That still doesn’t solve your fucking problem. But you know what else doesn’t solve your problem? People being grade A douchecanoes and cuntbags about the fact that you’re upset about something. We’re humans. And honestly, it’s probably cheesy to quote Perks right now but seriously, Chbosky is right. “And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.” Like be a little more considerate and stop behaving like a pretentious asshat. End rant.
That was my first reaction too. Ironically Frances’ comment is the one that seems self absorbed to me. Rather than help someone, console them or do anything productive he chooses to prove to everyone else that he’s better than this person.
Fances: “You’re having a hard time? Well stop complaining, at least you’re not homeless and starving. Me? I’m rather smart and never feel down when things aren’t going my way.
