The most annoying kids in the playground are the sneaky, whiny ones. The ones who can't stand seeing any good happen to anyone else, who want to be the first on every slide and who secretly wish people who look like they're having fun on the swings would fall off and break a bone or two. They're the ones who snicker when other kids fall in the mud, instead of lending a hand. Often, these are also the do-gooder-teacher's-pets who suck-up to anyone and everyone in authority because they know something good will come out of it for them in-the-end. These are not the stupid kids, mind you, they may just be the amongst the sharpest. They cannot, however, use thier ample brains to anything aside from their own advantage. They cheat whenever they know they cannot get caught. They wouldn't think twice about breaking a promise, telling tales (truth is really immaterial) or selling their soul to further their own cause. And when it comes to their peers, these kids honestly think they're so-much-better than the rest because they also know enough to know who to blame it on if the going gets rough. They're the ones who walk off smelling of roses when the rest of the gang gets into shit.
Those are the kids I refuse to play with. And unfortunately for them, my playground, my rules.
