The joys of being an annoying Wildcat

Chris Bellotti

I’m annoying.

I just wanted to get that out in the open. So if you know me, your assumptions are correct, and if you are wondering who this guy is whose articles you read weekly, now you can have an accurate concept of my personality.

Now that you know, if you have already established that what I say will be annoying no matter what I say, that’s fine – turn the page.

So, do you want to know what really sticks in my craw? (Kai, in this case, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – my apologies) People who, by being “too cool” for other people, feel that they have the status to call someone else annoying for simply being a little too nice or for acting interested.

Honestly, I don’t believe that is even possible; however, being called annoying gives me a constant feeling that there are fingernails scratching a chalkboard inside my head. So, here is what I say to all of those people who think they are “too cool”:

You are annoying.

Unfortunately, those people probably will not pick up a paper because reading the school newspaper is obviously not cool. You know what else isn’t cool? Getting really involved. I mean, think about it, those tools who get involved, they really care about the school and other people. They are all interested and nice. Why are these people so annoying?! Seriously, they should really get a life and do nothing with it. They even went to that stupid inauguration-did they miss the memo that the inauguration was a waste of time? I mean seriously, these are the same people who thought the bugaloo was cool during orientation! Losers! Sarcasm, anyone?

Yes, I just generalized all those people, the real losers, into one huge category without exceptions and guess what – it’s about time.

In case you let your whole life pass you by this weekend, there was an inauguration, and it was absolutely phenomenal. And here’s my opinion on something else – Father Donohue is the perfect person for the job, especially at this crucial time in Villanova’s history. And if you didn’t go to anything during the inauguration, including the football game, I suggest that you pack up your stuff, head east down the Main Line, make a left onto Route 1 and enroll in that school, because you are not a Villanovan, and you should probably go to a place that is much cooler.

It is about time that we stop labeling the interested, kind and willing as “annoying,” even if their enthusiasm is too much for your liking, and start getting on the cases of those who are either apathetic, indifferent and/or possess personalities that try to limit other people’s willingness to do the right thing. It is simple: if you are too cool for school, then do us all a favor and leave.

I am one annoying Wildcat, and I am darn proud of it.

Speak up, Villanova. Enjoy the week.
