Let's say we met one of our friend who was born and brought up in real poor circumstances. And 'coz of his hardwork he reached a position where he had never dreamed of. It is normal that when we meet such a person, he'll talk about the hardships he had to undergo. Let's say he told "I had times when I lived just by drinking water 'coz we had no food".
There are strange people who think they have endured everything in this world and whenever we say something they'll come up with situations they had went through which they think is similar to that.
Now I gave a quote above, let's see how this guy will reply to that. "Oh, my god, Yah, I know exactly how you felt 'coz I also have been through situations exactly like this. When we were in hostel, we'll spent all our money within the first few weeks of each month and the remaining days we will be starving and will have no food!!. God!! I couldn't even think about such things now". Got me? How can you relate both?
Here is another, first guy "I had just 3 shirts and 2 pants when I was a teenager and I completed my college education wearing those, Can you imagine that?"
Our special guy "Oh, yah, just remembered, we used to spent the money our parents gave for fun and then we won't be able to buy any clothes, Guess what, We used the same thing again and again. Ooooh, what horrible times it were?"
I could give you thousand of examples like that. when we talk about poverty and people who don't having enough money to live, they'll talk about how they suffered 'coz of the shortage of money to buy a luxury car they've dreamt.
Well, what will you call those people? People who don't understand what the real thing is? Or pretending they have suffered almost all in the world. Anything you say, they'll have readymade examples and their own experiences. How absurd? Anybody here have come across such SPECIAL creatures? You are welcome to share your ideas
