misread that as non laid black people

I'm only laid back until the situation calls for action

then I'm laid back almost to a fault

my favourite non laid back person to piss off is my academic supervisor

i never respond to her meeting emails

and she always has this list of questions for meetings that she sends in the email so you can formulate your responses beforehand, but i dont

and she says THIS WILL GO ON YOUR PERMANENT RECORD

and i say, ok

and then she looks like she's gonna explode

chad do you have a problem with authority?

my ex housemate that I disliked was one of the best people to wind up by being relaxed

the thing is, people with merited authority tend to respect you more if you dont have that subservient kind of attitude about it

I turned up to an induction in shorts and flip flops, and the high and mighty admin assistant was all like 'you're going to meet your consultant like that?!'

'No, clearly not. You didn't inform us that we were doing so. Do your job properly.'
