I think when people warn us about themselves, we should listen to them and walk away

He had said to me once, "people like me don't deserve friends like you"

In the end, he just wanted to be part of the clique. To be with the ultrasuccessful, ultrarich, ultraconnected folks.

Today at work when he wouldn't move out of the way despite me saying "excuse me", I stepped on his foot and shoved him to a side to make space. Petty? Yes. But so was he. I'm not gonna curl up in a corner to wait for him to step aside. Fcking a.sshat.
I agree with you entirely. When people make self deprecating statements as warnings they are often lined with truth. They can also often be a ready made excuse for future bad behaviour, as in "I told you that I'm shit so it's not my fault".

@SW-User I call it "an insurance clause". If you knowingly build a house on the edge of a crater of a recently active volcano you can hardly complain if it'll fall down.

@CrazyMusicLover the difference is you can physically see those things. It's hard to know the true reason behind anyone's words.

Absolutely. They're just honest. Take it or leave it, don't expect that they will change just for you.
