Suck Up And Shut Up

| Related | January 23, 2015

(I’m at my friend’s mom’s house sitting in the living room with her family. My friend’s older sister has injured her ankle and diagnosed herself with tendonitis. She hasn’t stopped whining, and my friend is tired of it.)

Sister: “Well… it says I need a walking boot. That’s stupid. I’m just going to suck it up.”

Friend: “If it hurts, wrap it.”

Sister: “It hurts so badly. I just don’t want to look stupid with a cast.”

(She continues to read off treatments and complain for another five minutes, insisting she’s just sucking it up.)

Friend: “If you’re going to suck it up, shut the f*** up and do it!”

(The sister threw her phone and pouted until we went home.)
