    Sometimes I can't help but think that we are living in a backwards society filled with double standards, where a$$holes get everything and where nice people do genuinely finish last. It seems that niceness isn't seen as "cool" and horrible people have more friends and are liked more sometimes for actually being a$$holes. Since when did being a heartless arrogent so and so be desirable ???

    It might just be my opinion but its defintely like this in my sixthform etc.

    I mean two people who were constantly getting chased up for work and skippng lessons where "the face of our sixthform" just because they were good looking.

    I just mean that being a nice person isn't as highly rated as i think it sound be

    What you're saying is very vague..

    But I think the whole idiots having friends thing is at least something that applied to me when I was at school- particularly at the start of secondary school, but that behaviour lessened as I got older.
