I'm too old for this

Too old for my housemates not washing their dishes and taking out the trash. Too old to referee. Too old to tolerate early-20s inanities. Arg.


J introduces me to some dude whose name I didn't care to remember. He looks Chinese, but J says he's from the Philippines.

Dude: "So sa'n ka nag-aral."
Me: "UP. Ikaw?"
Dude: "I went to Brent. Then I studied in Switzerland."
Me: "Oh."

I'm too tired to make small talk. But here's the decoded subtext.

Dude: "So, this is an expensive private uni. You must be rich. Tell me you're rich."
Me: "No, I'm smart."
Dude: "Awww, too bad I can't make nice with you. See, I'm rich. Filthy rich."
Me: "Oh fuck off."
