Mini Rant—“My Loss”
Why do people always say that?
"It’s your loss."
When I dislike a book or a movie (for obvious reasons, usually), or even that fact that I don’t eat meat. It’s clearly not my type of entertainment, cup of tea, etc.—not that I lack any enjoyable elements in my life. It’s like I’m not allowed to enjoy or not enjoy whatever I want without it being some sort of impediment of my character.
I can wholeheartedly disagree a point with someone so severely, but I will never presume to know that it is their loss in any regard.
It’s like saying that it’s my loss if I don’t live in ignorance of my own tastes. Maybe I come off as stuck-up and snooty about these things, but I don’t JUDGE people for their taste. No one should be ashamed of what they like and dislike. If someone is ragging on something I love, maybe I’ll whine a little, but I’m not going to convince them it’s for them or something they are clearly lacking.
It’s a poor man’s explanation, and a cowardly way out of proper discourse on a subject.#my loss #loss #weak #argument #rant #mini #hobbit #movies #tv shows #books #review #dislike #impediment #people #discourse #trap #end #insulted #annoyed #coward #sad #disagree #film #vegetarian
