21 Reasons Plants Are More Pleasant Than People

Because sometimes people just don’t photosynthesize with each other.

It’s not that they know those interactions are unpleasant. It’s that they’re just plants.

2. Most plants are not angry drunks.

People definitely will.

4. Plants aren’t film snobs. They won’t personally attack you for liking a movie they hate.

Because they aren’t physically capable of watching movies.

5. Or your favorite book—in fact, plants are proud illiterates.
