On the uselessness of speaking

You know when you are 100% certain of something because you are the only person that witnessed or experienced it... And you rather innocently tell other people about it but they develop their own facts, interpretations and events for dubious reasons... And when you tell them that they are wrong, they get frustrated even though they are merely experiencing it vicariously and ignore the reality of the moment... And it becomes really condescending and irrational because you are talking to a wall made of deaf bricks... And then you give up because you don't care enough, but the fictional events conjured by your idiot audience becomes the "truth" and they find joy in relating the story even though they were never a part of it... And the event becomes theirs and they don't realize that it is entirely false... And you realize that reality is really subjective and pointless?

Maybe you don't. But I find that tiresome and annoying.

I think I totally understand what you are talking about. Who? I can only guess.

Can you give me an example?

OK... example:

Say I see a sober yet clearly physically ill homeless guy barf on the street. I tell person X who insists that he was drunk. Then later, X will relate the story to others by saying something like "homeless people are all drunks, remember that guy you saw barfing on Yonge Street?".
