Description

Exactly how incompetent you are. What your ex’s best friend really thinks of you. The approximate time that you will die. Some things in life are better not to know about. And sometimes there can be a benefit to not knowing. In this episode — examples of ignorance truly being bliss, or even being an asset.

I dislike how the woman with HSAM was unloading her burden on the producer. Your life might be horrible but doesn't mean others aren't.

You are incompetent in using proper grammar and sentence structure. This episode synopsis has grammatical errors all over.
