You know what I would like? I would like to go a whole week without having someone explain “the rules” about how to be polite to me. I’d like to have one week without people telling me I’m doing everything wrong.

“When you are a guest it is polite to ____” “But that wouldn’t work with any of my friends.” “You need new friends.”

Right. Let me get right on finding friends who will conform to the rules you believe people should follow so that you can be more comfortable with how I act.
