a bitter moment

i never fail to be entertained slash amused when people at "higher levels" speak as if those below them are little imbessolic nincompoops. and by entertained, i mean unbelievably bothered. i have a flair for euphemisms. "here is the sentence that you wrote that i've reconstructed, taking out the pertinent words and inserting words that actually don't make sense in this context but that i'm going to insert regardless because i think they make me sound smarter (although in reality they just make you sound like you are spewing jargon that doesn't even go together). now does that make sense? do you see where i'm going with that? let me know if you don't get it".
pretty sure i got it the first time i wrote it in plain normal words before you deconstructed it ten times over, only for it to convey the exact same meaning once you can translate it from nonsensical jargon to reality. so yes, thank you so much for making sure that i understood your sentence. i really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart, for i'd never written a sentence before i came here. love, rachel
