When They Think You're Stupid

When they think you're stupid, they'll lie to you and expect not to pay a price. They will parse words and feign indignation. They'll send out minions who, if paid enough, would have insisted that Charles Manson was a fine family man. They will claim special circumstances and hint there is hidden knowledge which, if only they could speak freely, would cause you to jump to their defense. They will do all of this with a sincere smile and, on occasion, a somber expression more fitting for a vicar. Their boldness will cause you to question your own senses because you hold the quaint belief that what you saw and heard was what happened but they'll respond, "No, you're mistaken. It was something else." And they'll keep saying that.

Because they think you're stupid.
