Dumbass Sayings: “Burning Bridges”

When people offer you jobs after you’ve already officially accepted an offer from another company sometimes you tell them to fuck off because you don’t need them. People tell you that’s called “burning bridges” because you’re ruining connections that are behind you and one day you might want to go back. The way I see it, if you have a bridge that can be burned then it’s probably a drawbridge made of ropes and wooden planks. Those are very treacherous, unstable, and cheap bridges. Those bridges are crap to begin with. Any bridge worth its salt can withstand a little burning. Obviously if it’s flammable then that’s not a bridge that was worth my time to begin with. As a matter of fact, not only are those bridges shit, but they’re also a hazard and danger for other people who might happen upon them in the future. Sometimes burning bridges can be a good thing, like if a pack of savage natives are chasing after you. You would burn the bridge so you could escape. It’s not always a bad thing. So yes, I would burn bridges just to get rid of them and then in the place of that build a better more sturdy suspension bridge. If someone’s bridge melts when you tell them to fuck off then they clearly haven’t galvanized themselves properly. Every bridge should be tested frequently for safety flaws and if you have to put a little bit of fire on them to see how strong they are then so be it!

I don't really see how you could set that on fire, but okay...
