Dumb Down Man

Dumb Down Man

Obviously, the need to stroke the ego of a woman runs so great that people cry over it, kill over it, die over it. He wants to make sure he sends the right message, but whatever that message ends up being is beyond his control. To do so much is all he could ever really hope to do. Nevertheless, his boss cajoles from him his absolute worst self. Of course, “I would never intentionally intimidate you,” she explains one day during an all-hands-on-deck emergency session with the entire staff. Despite essentially being in charge, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, and too often times, that means ignoring these bitches who try to run the world. To give her a piece of his mind would just be the thing that he needs in order to reach that glorious climax later tonight. The thrill of an ego spent. An overt gesture to take her down a notch. They are all asking for it, and someday, sooner rather than later, he decides, “I’m gonna be the one to give it to them.”
