Intellectual Frustration

“Don't try to teach a pig to sing. It'll just frustrate you and annoy the pig."

It is very frustrating for me when I'm trying to have an intelligent discussion with someone and they turn out to be too stupid to understand what I'm saying. In the past I would try to explain the issue to them. But I have learned that that is futile and will frustrate me and annoy them. I have to just accept that they are not capable of understanding the issue and drop it, most people are just not as smart as I am and I need to learn to accept that. And I can come here and vent my frustration at not being understood.

I'm sorry you feel that way about me.

On an unrelated note, I'm not sure I'll be having lunch with you on Friday.
I hope you are joking about this post being about you.

I haven't spoken to you since last Friday and this post is about a discussion I was having with a stranger on Quora.

Are you being serious about next Friday?
I was joking about the post being about me.

Friday is the 4th, and I'll not be at work. That makes lunch plans iffy, at best. The issues with lunch on Friday are completely unrelated to issues of intellectual frustration -- unless I end up having lunch with you and K, of course.
LOL
That might be for the best I will have IDK in tow by then.
You two are among the smartest people I know. I think you're awesome.
