Letting a passive-aggressive functionary know that you see exactly what they're doing and will hold no truck with it is... satisfying, today. Not gonna lie, it's VERY satisfying.
@thegibson I tend to burst out laughing and be all, "You think you're bad? You're a piker, I was trained by the BEST, my mother would eat you alive."
I don’t know where I got my detector... I had good parentals... Seriously.
@thegibson Good parents can probably help defend one too, since it gives one good boundaries and (I presume) at least some resistance to gaslighting.
I certainly feel like I don’t fall for much... but my parents kind of do.
Maybe it’s just applied paranoia.
@thegibson Which isn't a bad thing.
