*snarl*

I hate the phrase "Life is not fair."

Uh, yes. Yes, it's not fair. Pretty much everyone realizes this sooner or later, and most often sooner. You needn't add this smugly into the conversation when people are complaining, because generally when people complain, they realize it's not fair. (Sometimes, believe it or not, it's just venting!) Little platitudes and clichés aren't required here, thank you.

Moreover, I absolutely resent the way this phrase is used to express the futility of doing anything. You may be perfectly content to let things go on as they are, but I am not. Yes, life is not fair. That doesn't mean it will never be fair, or that there's nothing we - or I - can do to make it more fair.

Please, just go away and take your stinky, pessimistic, snarky little banality away with you.
