My friend's really berating me and calling me a child because I said I was getting sleepy at 12 AM. It's not even the fact that I'm inclined to sleep at this time that he's insulting me over, it's that I used the word "sleepy" at all.
Why would he be so cruel about this? What's this faggot's deal?
i think the problem lies with you my friend
if you're old enough to have a roommate you should be old enough to cope with their bullshit without venting your thoughts out on anonymous forums

When someone says something so out of left field like that I seriously wonder whether this is a normal thing to do because I don't have much experience with people outside my family.
same, 39 and have never heard someone call "sleepy" a childish word. "tummy" yes. "sleepy"...the only odd connotation I can dredge out of my brain is hypnotists saying "you are getting very sleepy"
well tell him someone older than him disagrees. also tell him to get a fucking hobby because he doesn't sound like he has anything better to do than get riled up over someone else's word choices.
Sounds like autism.
That or he's mad at you for something.
Maybe he's just doing banter, if it's a regular thing I wouldn't worry and just tell him to eat shit.
If it's not, he's probably upset.
I don't even want to talk about this to him again, glad to know it was as nonsensical as I thought though.
I wish he just talked to me like that, at least I'd know he's just fucking with me but he actually lowkey(but still said it) called me an idiot for saying it's just a normal word.
I'd bank on him being upset, he sometimes does this to me but the worst was half a year ago when I didn't give a girl a piece of paper for him. He did it in a subtle way and I didn't even realize the reason for the shit talking until I connected the dots a month ago.
[spoiler]Why am I friends with this guy[/spoiler]
I just loaned him 50 bucks 30 minutes prior to this, 3 days before I spent 2 hours and 4 hours the day before in a study session with him and I tried my very best to help him pass the statistics test. He was straight up not getting a majority of the concepts before we studied together.
Huge red flags there. I once had a friend like that: always like to put you down, gets angry often over small issues, always try to "correct" you, doesn't perform well in school, claiming to be more mature despite not actually being mature, and asking for help often but not willing to help back in return. These all go together like bread and butter. You should ditch your shitty friend before he ruins your life.
I've known quite a few people like this. They put others down because of their own inadequacies. But they still like to think that everyone is beneath them, and will tear you down if you say/do something they don't like.
I had a friend that would sometimes do shit like this back in high school. Some days, he'd just be really mean to me for no reason about little mundane shit like that.
I later realized that it was because of his brother, who was severely autistic. Somedays, his brother would just fuck with him or otherwise make his life difficult.
Chances are, your friend is going through something and taking it out on you. I'm not saying that's okay or cool or anything. Just helps to know, sometimes, I think.
