me alone: this problem is not a big deal, i don’t even care, it doesn’t matter whatsoever. no fucks given. i can handle this without a single doubt. i’m absolutely okay.
friend: are you dealing with your problem okay?
me: *immediate hysterical sobbing*
if i’m ever rich i’m gonna always leave huge tips, like 200%. that’s like the dream. having enough money to give some waitress 40 bucks extra just because she’s nice.
