It's appalling to see how people always crack jokes at Metallica's expense.
This is neither the time nor place to just throw them under the bus. That was in 1986.

I used to have a really cool Deafheaven shirt, I never much cared for the band but whenever someone would compliment it I'd tell them "thanks I don't listen to the band I just thought it looked cool"

For some reason, this reminds me of the first time I saw Sublime. At the beginning, I thought they were really good and understood the hype. By the half-way point the thought became, "OK, if the singer/guitarist can survive the heroin addiction, they'll be huge." Nowell died before their next show.

This one is both funny and infuriating.

In my 20s I used to work for a local family that has gotten filthy ass rich off of tourism, and when I took a day off for a toothache their daughter, my coworker, asked "why don't you just go to the dentist?" and then "how do you not have insurance?"

well because your family pays me minimum fucking wage and doesn't give me sick leave for starters

I took up XC skiing a while back. It's less expensive than downhill skiing but still too rich a hobby for my income bracket. :lol: But I bought a pair of heavily used skis, found two very different skipoles in a dumpster, and bought a used pair of skiboots that lasted me 3 years (2 of which they were already starting to fall apart). I don't see how people can drop that kind of money on gear that they will use maybe 3 months a year when there is snow on the ground but it's not so cold that you freeze to death in 18 minutes.

Not quiiiiite in the same vein, but the "living in different worlds" thing feels like a similar attitude I encountered a while back-

I was sitting in my office's kitchen, when a guy in a suit comes in and is walking around talking to the company's owner, etc. Eventually he sits down to eat lunch and chat with a bunch of us, at which point he makes a generic point about how he's "glad to have started working with the smartest people he ever met". Smartass me butts in with "plus a few idiots like me!", thinking I can maybe cut some of the corporate-y BS air in the room. Instead he looked at me like I kicked his dog - all of his flabbers were ghasted - "Oh no! I meant you too! I swear, I'm including you too!"

Dude, we just met. You don't know that I'm not a dumbass.

I am picturing you continuing to XC ski but bindings are broken and you just sort of skid through the snow in your shoes. Neighbors cry.
