Tonight we went to dinner with my Mom and Dad for Mothers Day.
And my Sis did what she always does. She refutes any belief or fact that she does not believe as though she knows everything. No discussion. She is always right.
Damn it Sis, stop it. You don’t have to pretend you know everything to impress people. In fact it makes you look like an asshole. Smart people admit when they do not know something. The only way to learn is to know what you do not know. Otherwise you will always be ignorant.
Dear Sis, yes you have worked on a project dealing with finding low level medical nuclear waste for a year. But when the discussion of transporting high level nuclear waste comes up you DO NOT know more than Dad. Dear Sis, Dad spent 20 years of his life designing and testing containment vessels and other saftey systems. Dear Sis, while you may think that the containment vessels are unsafe but dimissing the data does not help your case especially when you haven’t reviewed that data.
Dear Sis, the fact that you do not know what is considered a safe Rad dosage doesn’t help your case when I do even though I don’t work in the field.
Dear Sis, please stop it. I love you but you make every family function uncomfortable because you have to disagree with everyone all the time. All it does is make you look like a fool and make us all feel embarassed.
