So I felt like sharing something that's funny, but only funny because I'm not still stuck in that moment.
I think we've all had this happen to us, where you find yourself listening in on someone's conversation, and you realize that they are very very stupid. Perhaps they aren't stupid, but they are essentially blaring a loud siren showing the world how much of a hypocrite they are. The very long work shift I just finished had examples of both of those things.
So the first one was 2 employees who are Known for how lazy they both are, chattering away instead of working. This really isn't anything new for those guys, but for some reason I found myself listening to what they were saying instead of letting their chatter fade into the background like normal. For around 15 to 20 minutes they stood there talking about how annoyed they are at the people who get to stand around talking instead of doing their work. Neither man was joking, and they sat there describing themselves while each talking about some Other people, of whom I'm not sure. It's funny how hearing the hypocrisy made my head physically hurt.
These same 2 people later started up a new conversation, where they were super excited about the new Star Wars movie that's coming out soon. They took turns exclaiming to the other how much of a Star Wars fan they are, how they've watched the movies for their whole lives, and how they know everything about them. As they began recounting parts of the films, they made many references to "Dark" vader. They also butchered quotes that I would imagine even people who don't care much for the franchise could nail perfectly. When I didn't think it could get any worse, one of the men began guessing what the last movie might be about. He wondered if they would have "all the old characters in it". Yup, let that sink in for a second. He started naming names... Dark vader, the emperor, Obi wan, Darth maul, Qui gon jin, ect. The other guy's face lit up and responded with the childish "Oh yeah! That would be amazing!" They weren't talking about force-ghost versions of these people either.
As I type this it really sounds like I'm talking about a couple of 9 year olds, when these men are both very late 30s or early 40s. They chattered on about how awesome it would be for all of the characters to be in the last Star Wars movie, and at no time did either figure out that none of that would make any sense in any way whatsoever. I guess Hollywood could pop out a movie with young Anikin Skywalker fighting alongside Rey, in some battle against the emperor and Count Duku... and these guys would never wonder how dead characters and characters separated by many years have all been mashed up together. The headache continued until I forced myself to stop listening to them. I didn't even want to know what they might talk about next.
I really did find myself asking, is this really happening? Is this like a joke because they know I can hear them? How did they get dressed this morning? So many questions!
