Things That I Hate

That Guy

In every school there’s a guy that nobody talks to. He’s quiet, generally stays away from crowds, has a crush on a popular girl, but nobody talks to him. You know who I’m talking about. That quiet guy, sitting there, staring blankly, and you have no idea what’s going on in his head. Does he want to shoot everybody? Commit suicide? Endure the ignorance? Lash out at an innocent person because one remark would be the last straw? You probably never thought about it until I mentioned it, right? Think about it. It’s the quiet ones you gotta watch out for.

  1. You must watch too many scary movies. I’m quiet but that doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with me. I’m just too scared to talk to people.

  3. He doesn’t like you. I don’t like you either.

  4. That was me in high school. I have Social Anxiety Disorder, and “that guy” probably does, too. If he does, he can’t just turn it off like a switch the way most people expect us to. He can’t cure his shyness by not being shy, any more than you can cure a cough by not coughing. He’s lonely and unhappy, and you’re an ass for hating him for it. He needs help.

  5. I agree with Sazkion. I personally prefer to be alone, even now that I’ve graduated High School and am now in College. I still want to be alone. I don’t trust anyone anyway.
