I am trying to figure out how my daughter can be smart enough to score over 90% on exams in physics while being simultaneously so bleedin’ dumb that she leaves the toilet running after using it in the middle of the night. The sound of which wakes ME up (but not HER, of course), and I have to go downstairs and fix it. And now I can’t get back to sleep.
She’s not dumb, she just doesn’t care. Why should she? It doesn’t wake her, and she doesn’t pay the water bill. It doesn’t concern her at all, and so it doesn’t concern her at all.
What a wonderfully bright and normal teen you have!
