Okay, so there was a girl who was horrible to me in secondary school. I never had any classes with her, or spoke to her, but suddenly people were telling me about how much this girl hated me, and about all the terrible things she was saying about me to other people. While her behaviour (and, in particular, the rumours she attempted to spread) bothered me, it was never soul-crushing, as (a) I didn’t really know her and (b) my friends thought that she was idiotic, anyway.
Well, I was searching through Twitter’s ‘Who to Follow’ list, and she pops up. She’s become very pretty and, from what I gather, is trying to become an actress. But this is all incidental. Reading her tweets, I noticed that many of them are holier-than-thou prattle about how much of a nice person she is, and about how she’d never say anything unkind to others and, don’t you know, if you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. She’s even attributed her ‘stunning success’ to her ‘wonderful personality’.
And now I’m angry. I was only ever annoyed and confused back in school, but now, seeing her hypocrisy, I’m properly mad. And I don’t even know how to interpret my strong feelings that seem to have come out of nowhere, so I’m going to eat chocolate and seethe confusedly for a bit.
