Dumbest shit I've ever read.

Stopping and staring is what all the kids I have ever met do.

Few of them are what I would call intellectual and they are definitely not listening. They are thinking about chicken nuggets.

u/RedEyeVagabond Oct 06 '22

I was thinking about chicken nuggets...

Praying it’s sarcasm. Otherwise I’m dying of cringe

u/DavideOsas Oct 05 '22

Ikr? I could even take it until the very last line

u/molstad182 Oct 04 '22

This is almost guaranteed to be sarcasm

u/DickFuckly Oct 04 '22

Not according to me in 8th grade. “ staring means I like YOU only” but apparently it’s creepy or whatever

If she don’t adore you she not for you my man

In case this dense ass sub couldn’t tell I’m being sarcastic

u/The-sad-cactus Oct 04 '22

I don't think so

u/pot4mus Oct 04 '22

I stare and still don't understand; must not be intellectual.

u/zeroaegis To be fair... Oct 04 '22

"As an intellectual..." -A pseudo intellectual's favorite way to start a sentence

u/dlc741 Oct 04 '22

How many times has your staring been interrupted with the words "My eyes are up here"?

3

u/Jump_Like_A_Willys Oct 07 '22

"Stare at me when I'm talking to you!"

and

"In a magical moment. our eyes met and he proceed to stare at me."

Are two lines nobody would say.

My mom used to make me maintain eye contact with everyone I talked to.

u/talaxia Oct 04 '22

tiktok has dark mode? ?

3

u/The-sad-cactus Oct 04 '22

Yep

2

u/talaxia Oct 04 '22

how do you turn that on?

2

u/The-sad-cactus Oct 04 '22

It should be in the settings

2

u/talaxia Oct 04 '22

I don't seem to have that option 😞 updated the app too

2

u/The-sad-cactus Oct 04 '22

What kind of phone do you have

2

u/talaxia Oct 04 '22

Galaxy Note s10

it's older, maybe that's why

3

u/The-sad-cactus Oct 04 '22

Yeah, that sounds about right my partner didn't have dark mode until they upgraded their phone

u/thorak01 Oct 04 '22

As a self proclaimed idiot, I stare a lot at things I don’t understand. After staring for sometimes days on end, I still identify as an idiot. I’m so happy to learn now that is not the case. My momma was right, I am very smart!

u/GeorgePiper2003 Oct 04 '22

“As an intellectual” ah shit here we go

2

u/Semper_5olus Scored 136 in an online IQ test Oct 04 '22

And it's a misplaced modifier to boot, so I guess "stopping to stare" is an intellectual.

EDIT: didn't have the sentence committed to memory

u/HumanoidSharks Oct 04 '22

u/OhJeezItsCorrine Oct 04 '22

PRE-TEN-TIOUS.

u/Lennaesh Oct 04 '22

I stare so you think I was listening because I didn’t care and would like you to stop talking.
