Dumbass Sayings: “Chip on Your Shoulder”

Sometimes people say shit like “Growing up, I always had a chip on my shoulder and that made me fight harder to prove people wrong.” I don’t really see how a chip on your shoulder is such a big deal. First of all, what kind of chip are we talking about? Chocolate? Potato? American potato chips? Kettle cooked or baked? Maybe you have a British chip on your shoulder which is what they would call a french fry. There’s one thing all of those things have in common regardless of what kind of chip they are, they’re all extremely light. Chips are inherently light things. They’re merely a chip off of something much larger like a block of chocolate or a whole potato. So why is walking around with such a light thing on your shoulder such a problem? I would think walking around with a chocolate chip on your shoulder would be more of a pain in the ass to keep it from falling off. I’m not sure how that motivates you in life though. Now if you mean to say there’s a chip IN your shoulder like flesh got cut out, then that still actually makes no sense. Also, again you’re talking about a chip so it can’t be that substantial of a thing.

Maybe a whole bag would do something, but not a single chip.
