I Saw You

The Sulker of Swat

You sulked as you sat on the bench, sucking the energy out of your teammates with your whining and griping. They didn't have the heart to tell you that they didn't appreciate your attitude or share your overinflated estimation of your skills. You could have read that by their silence and sudden interest in their socks and shoelaces if you were not so self-absorbed. But you brayed on about the coach's unfair treatment of you and how you were so much better than certain other players, and wonder to this day why you were not asked back to the team. So let me spell it out for you: you're a selfish jerk, and you suck.
