Life Lessons by Jack

Driving in the car today, I overheard Jack telling Megan about a girl at daycare who is "so annoying".

Me: Jack, don't you think it would hurt her feelings if she knew you called her annoying?
Jack: (pause...pause...) Maybe...I guess so.
Me: Well then maybe you should think about that and not call her annoying.
Jack: But that's the way life works.
Me: What do you mean?
Jack: Some people are annoying.

I just left it at that. How can you argue with that bit of truth?

Some people ARE annoying.

She's right.

Only the social hegemony of the real world question this reasoning.

That's our classic struggle isn't it? When to tell the truth and not sugar coat it. If you figure that out, let me know.
