Well it exists . It is called ” Dumasaphobia ” or The fear of stupid people .
And i just dont have a fear , I am dead scared!!! And that’s partly because, i dont know what reaction their actions can cause in me! I am scared for them actually. 😉
SO , do you suffer from any such ” phobia” ?? . you may not know it as of now , but it is indispensable to have a reality check .
We will start with WHO ?
Who are these people?
Do they look different from us ? maybe four legs , two above and two below??
No. It doesn’t matter how much i wish they start growing legs on their heads ,the fact is they look normal.
like you and me .
They could be anyone , your classmates, your co workers , your neighbour ,just any one . They can be found in groups and could also be a one man army . but here’s the catch – do not underestimate the loner!
Next comes the most important question : HOW TO IDENTIFY ONE?
Now this can be really tough to begin with , because out there , stupids can be seasoned ones or novices .
The seasoned ones bring out this voice from within you , every damn time you see them , hear them or even think of them – ” Slap. The . Idiot. Slap. Now. Slap. Slap. ”
This is because you have tried and tested all other basic prevention tips like ignoring , giving them more chances, sympathising with them and worse of all even “participating with them”
( God knows what all i have gone through in this last stage 😛 )
The beginners are the ones you still use the above techniques with 🙂
The last part is about HOW MANY ? If you feel that there are just a handful of stupids , you can calm down and relax. ( You could be one of these though 😛 ).
But if you are anything like me , you should be worried!! Because every third person i meet turns out to be stupid. (At least since the last three years i have joined college 🙂 .)
Any SYMPTOMS you may ask ? Well i can only share my experiences with you
I feel my veins will pop out of my head. Once the ” actions” start i just stare into blank space and count my heartbeats rising.
My voice becomes inaudible because i am actually shrieking in the ultrasonic frequency range . 🙂 They think they are being cute and funny and cute again , but to me, they are just being irritating and cranky fools. It becomes impossible for me to even sit straight faced . My head aches. And then , in the end i only think how unfair God has been to them :(.
Now that you have read about it all , i welcome you to my world . But lets not be sad about it . We the ” dumasaphobics ” will not let the power of stupid boggle us down . WE WILL FIGHT . 😛 😛 😛 . Lets say our prayers together
I am still working on the tips to fight for our rights, on ways to tackle the attack of the stupid. Will post them soon. If you have any suggestions do share 🙂 .
P.S- I learnt the word DUMASOPHOBIA ,when i tumbled across this site
