School life isn’t like how it’s depicted in the movies; the soundtrack is just internal screaming and the class-clowns are disruptive little shi…
Symptoms are as follows:
- You are constantly rude to teachers.
- You are constantly rude to younger students.
- You are constantly rude to your peers.
- Tbh you are constantly rude to everyone, it’s hard to tell when you aren’t.
- It is for that reason why most are scared of you. Including teachers.
- In addition to Year 7s being terrified of bumping into you in the corridor, the teachers don’t like your presence that much either. Even if you can’t see it yourself.
- You make jokes that no one finds funny apart from you. In fact you probably think that you are absolutely hilarious; the next best comedian to come out of a grammar school in Bucks (and as most people hate grammar schools, your background won’t win you over).
- And the god-awful jokes you don’t make are usually ignorant and/or completely insensitive.
- You don’t care about school, meaning that you: have a complete disregard for school rules, disrupt EVERY SINGLE LESSON and end up in detention almost every day.
- You are insecure, but take it out on others.
- You aren’t trustworthy, and so have few close friends (#sorrynotsorry)
- You are annoying to everyone but yourself and your friends.
- You make fun of people who have no social life (ie me).
- You are pretty attention seeking and have bags of confidence most people wish they have.
- However, the most annoying thing about you is that you act stupid when in reality you are the total opposite: incredibly smart.
- You also create a “hard” persona; acting aggressive when questioned (rightfully).
Do you relate? If so, you are probably an asshole. An annoyingly smart and time-wasting asshole.
- Fuck off
- Show off your intelligence rather than your ignorance
- Refrain from general rudeness
- Only contribute in lessons when you have something actually worthwhile to say
- Pipe down a bit
- Try to understand other people, and acknowledge that not everyone you call a ‘loser’ deserves that title.
- Be nice to teachers please
- Don’t slut shame (or any kind of shame)
I hope more people would take my advice on the last few points.
Everyone is secretly a little bit self-conscious about looking like, and being a tourist.
Honestly, I am not ashamed to admit that I have been a stereotypical tourist; it’s just something that you just have to take on board and deal with for a week or two. So, at the end of the day, you shouldn’t be ashamed either.
This said, the first step to overcoming the hideously annoying personality trait is always the hardest. In this case the key is to acknowledge the evidence and accept it.
So that’s where I come in.
I will display a list of common symptoms and if you have done/ suffered the following, you need to get less irritating. Please.
- Firstly, you have pulled out a map in the middle of the street, not just once, but multiple times. In fact, you have pulled out said map more frequently than you would whip out your phone at a boring af family function.
- You have taken a selfie using a selfie stick. In public. Seriously, for the love of God, put it away.
- You have stopped in the middle of a busy pavement during rush hour. *I mean, it’s great that you love the architecture so much, and it’s even better that you are appreciating it, just make sure when you have your little numinous moments you stand on the road, in front of that big red double-decker bus coming towards you.
- You have been openly racist, said some disrespectful saying, or a sweeping generalisation in front of a group of locals. *Don’t blame me when you have unexpected cups of tea being thrown in your face.
- You have travelled on a tourist bus in the city.
- You don’t understand their metro/ train system. *What do the coloured lines mean???
- You have tried (and failed) as speaking the language.
- You visit more high key tourist areas in 3 days than a local would in 10 years.
- The jet lag is real. So goddamn real.
- Overpacking is essential to your holiday.
- You blow your budget in about an hour, buying shitty keychains and fridge magnets that you will never ever use again.
- Don’t forget the overpriced t-shirts and baseball caps.
- You spend your day checking your watch, comparing that time to the one back home.
- Everything is super expensive.
- Your suitcase becomes 10x heavier after the holiday due to the endless amount of leaflets and guides that you were bombarded with during your trip.
- By the end of the trip you have tried to blend in with everyone else; changing your fashion sense, accent and demeanour to fit in.
- You walk loads. I mean, more than 10,000 steps a day.
- Everything you see is a good photo opportunity.
- Meeting other tourists give you “life”
- You check trip advisor more than Facebook.
- And that’s saying something, as the amount of photographs you are sharing on there is enough to make the Kardashians cringe.
- You take more pictures of food than necessary. *Which is none btw.
- You have had the runs due to the cuisine served.
- Asking for directions only made you lost as they sent you the wrong way. Thanks a bunch.
- You are either unbelievably sunburnt, the same colour, or unbelievably tanned (and everyone takes the piss regardless).
- You drink like a fish just because.
- You like to travel in groups no fewer than 4.
Are more than 10 of these ticked off? Well that only means one thing: you are a fully fledged tourist. Congrats.
- Pretend that you are not a tourist
- Stop doing all of the above
- Chill out a lil bit

- Making jokes on your good looks should become your full-time profession
- Forget the Sun, the world revolves around you.
- You have a go-to pose for every. Single. Picture.
Feel like you have a deep connection with more than 6 of these? Want to deny some of them but you know they are extremely accurate? You’re vain. You probably think that this blog is about you. (In a way I suppose it is)

If you are in any of the situations listed above, or look like any of the descriptions stated, i have reason to believe that you are angry. Welcome to land of sarcasm, pessimism and bad attitude!

This is a common illness so do not fret if you suffer from a couple of these (however if you don’t use deodorant then I advise that you should buy some. It actually works.)
This said, if you have seven or more of these symptoms then some common treatments include;
-stop doing all of your symptoms for the sanity of others
I hope this helps!
(Or sometimes called RBFS)
Symptoms are as follows;
- Looking like you’re about to kill someone when in reality you really like the gift you just received from Auntie Beth
- Getting asked about three “are you okay?” and four “period?” comments just by looking at someone during a conversation (obviously the latter doesn’t occur for men) (unless…)
- The inability to look interested without looking overly enthusiastic/ patronising/ sarcastic
- You are able make people feel awful, scared, boring, unwanted, unloved just by looking at them
- Not being able to tell the difference between your “man, I’m going to beat the crap out of you” face and your “wow, I find you really interesting. Please tell me more about your work in accounting” face.
- You don’t have wrinkles
- It is pretty much the only facial expression you have
- You could turn Medusa into stone
- You aren’t really sure what smiling is anymore, or at least non-fake smiling
- You have the same facial expression all of the time, unless someone tries to be funny, in which case your facial expression intensifies into this “fight me” look, which leaves the person in tears, fearing for their life.
- You can make small children cry too
If you have just some of the above then it is with pleasure that I diagnose you with RBFS, the facial expression that lasts a lifetime.
– None. You are screwed.
