MEET MR and MRS NARC.....
Unlike an extinct creature on one of those fascinating David Attenborough documentaries....... The NARCS species are in plague proportions......they're everywhere!
Perhaps they're the opposite to the classic bear and have decided to come out of hiberation because it's winter??........Or do we blame it on the madness of social media??
Not familiar with the term? Let me enlighten you.
NARC is short for Narcissism.
NPD:Narcissism Personality Disorder.
NARC in Narcissistic is the same as the NARC in NARCOTIC....this specimen is drunk and totally intoxicated with their own appearance and self. In simple terms.....they're "LIKE" freaks that simply "LIKE" everything about themselves!
Narcissus was a mythological Greek youth who fell in love with his reflection in a stream. Unable to leave his reflection, Narcissus perished..................enter the modern day.........the invasion of the male and female 'NARCS'........... they love to 'LIKE' the rainy season cos' there's puddles galore!
Sure, I'm the first to admit that I'm guilty of getting on the Mothership of social media 'like' face book, blogging, and more. Yes, I'm guilty of self promotion when it comes to my business, because it's simply a matter of survival. The difference with NARCS, is it's all about the promotion of 'oneself'. These specimens survive off the adoration and confirmation of self worth from other species as they suck up the 'N' supply like a desperate smoker "suckin" on a long overdue fag!
Ask yourself.....do you know any NARCS??
They're easy to spot......they're the ones talking all about them, the one that never ask you anything about YOU! You know the drill.......it goes like this. You speak......they cut you off at the pass and say, "Enough about you, getting back to ME.....what do you think about ME??"
Give me a quiz about them and I can answer every question, give them a quiz about YOU and they fail miserably.
Does this specie lack so much self esteem that they feel compelled to entertain us with their incessant VERBAGE (bullshit) that spills out of their mouth like a fountain.......all designed to impress the listener!
Well guess what NARCS......it doesn't and it's boring!
You're a dying breed Mr and Mrs NARC......destined for extinction........a David Attenborough doco special And why.......because nobody's interested, nobody cares. It's not a competition!
So as we smile and listen, as they bang on in their own little world, remove those wicked thoughts from your mind, the ones where you've just head butted them, the ones that see yourself shouting "Whatever!!!!!!....you total tool"
Just nod your head and reply with something absurd. After all, they won't have heard a word. Trust me, the response from them will be .................
Is there a mirror around here??????
