OP-ED: Shut the Fuck Up

Listen, buddy, whatever you’re blabbering on about right now, I don’t want to hear about it. You could literally be telling me that the final for my Art History class has been canceled and I couldn't care less! You know why? Cuz you, and that mouth of yours, have been getting on my nerves lately. 

Yea, I said it and I’ll say it again. Shut the fuck up. 

The beauty of this whole situation is that you don’t have to explain yourself. In fact, that would just make things worse. 

So, with that very important piece of information in mind, choose your next step wisely. You wanna keep on running that mouth of yours, well it’s a free country and I can’t stop you. But what I can do is punch you in the face. Ha, bet you didn’t expect that one, did you? Actually, don’t answer that question because you simply have to shut the fuck up. 

Cease talking, shut your lips, I don’t know how many times I have to say it! I’m losing my patience with you, and trust me, you don’t want that to happen. You’ve got an annoying face, a shrill voice, and virtually nothing of worth to say. Make it easier on yourself and just stop now.
