The only experience they ever had was seeing a HBIC (head bitch in charge), so do they think that this is how they should act?

Blame Your Parents

Do you ever think of all of the ideas that you had to unlearn in order to become a somewhat regular member of society? Before you say no, don’t lie, really think about it.

Part of The Problem

I’m not one of those deep thinkers. I’m not going to be the one to preach that we were once kings and queens because I can’t be honest that I really know these things to be true.
