    [xxxx]: "What did everyone get on their AP test?"
    Me: "I got a 3. [yyyy] got a 5. Class average was 3.5; the distribution was either 2-3-4-5 or 3-3-3-5."
    [xxxx]: "Well, I got a 4."
    Me: "...poor [zzzz]. >:"
    [zzzz]: "why do u say 'poor me' ? whats wrong with getting a two?"
    [xxxx]: "There's nothing wrong with a two. Good job [zzzz]. Don't worry we all Did great on the test. don't worry about what [my name] said."
    Me: Look, don't read me wrong, it's not about "good" or "bad" in terms of performance on the test; if you're happy to get what you did, then great. I'm sure colleges will look upon your grade for the class positively.
    But purely pragmatically, nowhere I want to go will take a 3. It's about cost-benefit, really.
    [zzzz]: It was just a question, no need to be defensive. Well, [my name], you really can't complain about getting a three because, 'purely pragmatically', you hardly did any work all year.
    Me: Hah, no need to mock me; I did way more work, albeit not for the class, than anyone else, in spite of having been depressed. Also, what you call "being defensive" was me trying to be polite, but I guess there goes that.

    I really want to add the following points:
    1.) I did the work more deeply and was more concerned about quality than quantity, hence why I got higher score on the exam than she did. I don't attach emotion to that score, so I would hardly call that complaining.
    2.) I maintained a B in that class on top of everything else I did in school before I got depressed about other shit and gave up on life. People underestimate how much pain and frustration someone has to be in before they kick the bucket in that department.

    I'll copy and paste that if she still hasn't cooled down, when she replies, but whatever.
    Side note: Hah, it figures that the ESTP teacher and I would get along best, while she's more phobic and has an aversion to us.

    I think you have a perfectly valid point about the low grade sucking, if for no other reason than because you don't get college credit for it. I don't see anything HORRIBLE about what you said...

    But I always hesitate to accuse people of not working hard. You're not with them every moment of the day - You don't know how hard they study. And grades aren't always indicative of the amount of effort put forth. I know people who are bad test takers that work harder than I ever will for lower grades. Maybe she worked her ass off, and you just assume she didn't because of the grades.

    Furthermore, you may not know whats going on her life. Not everyone would be so forthcoming about depression. Maybe something is going on in her life, too. Maybe she's depressed. Maybe the night before the exam she found out about the death of a relative. That kind of thing.

    Maybe you know her well enough. I don't know your situation. But I always hesitate to tell people I have things worse than them, or I worked harder than them. I might not know.

    @Patches Yeah, she got the highest grade in the class and has a hard time with her writing skills, so it's a lot harder for her to demonstrate her knowledge and she definitely worked hard. Also had the death of a relative one or two months earlier, but that's not quite the same thing... I think. So I totally get her when she got defensive, but she didn't have to put me down in the process. I really was just trying to console (maybe not console... more like sympathize with with) her, albeit a failed attempt.

    I guess it's a misunderstanding on all sides... After a year of projection and judgment from other people (the school therapist, the vice principal, the National Honor Society advisors, you name it), it became a... sort of paradigm shift? in my gut that I would never let anyone call me lazy, obnoxious, or undeserving without giving them a piece of my mind.

    Hell, there was a point at the beginning when even the teacher, who wasn't quite naturally intellectually endowed but worked hard to develop his critical thinking skills, just kind of assumed that intelligent people had it easy in life, contrary to my experiences as an absent-minded professor/tortured artist. I still have such a strong reaction against him sometimes when he says certain things, but he's gotten to know me better and he would do anything to make me smile when I'm upset or pissed, soooo...

    Thanks. I kind of take it upon myself for not gauging the person's reaction/motivation/whatever correctly when a social interaction goes wrong, so I really do try to understand, but it's hard when you don't by default see the PEOPLE... if that makes any sense.

    I dont think thats necessarily true. Yeezy basically went into hiding after the infamous Taylor Swift episode, and there were a couple of tracks off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy where he brings up his issues with self-loathing,ect. I just think the guy can't help himself.

    If you wanna talk about individuals that dont give a fuck. Allow me to introduce you to the honey badger:
