The obvious thing to do would be to cease interaction. But I have small obligations still, and I stick by them. Until I can justify it otherwise. And since said obligations are so small, it'll take a lot before I can justify. Plus, I don't want to give up the chance that one day they'll stop being so smurfing prissy and we can have decent interaction.
It's more than idealism, and less. I simply want harmony again. It doesn't have to be a huge smurfing operatic duet, but this constant dissonance is really unpleasant.
Stupid smurfing People.
