And some people never got over it but learned not to be public about it.

Can I have the chicken alfredo slice of pizza instead? Unfortunately
they didn't have that at the pizza place today.
Anyway, it's much more rewarding for life to suck and have other
people notice and be concerned without you pointing out to them that
it sucks. But that won't happen if you point out that your life sucks.

So, what exactly happens when you call bullshit? I keep picturing
something like from Nickelodeon but instead of a bucket of green slime
dumping, it is something else (slimely, but most likely not green
unless there was intestinal trouble that day).
