Jack was a loud person and it was easy for him to express his anger, so if he didn’t show himself angry, he wasn’t. As simple as that. What he did notice was that he should better cut his rambling a little. The scout didn’t seem to be fully understanding his point. “I don’t think it’s about understanding. We can’t really help it and that’s not something we like to hear. Ignorance is bliss.” with this, he considered that topic closed. At least he had the consideration to avoid spatting at his face that he was an ignorant fool, like he had done before.
He laughed, a little bitterly when Russell talked so happily about how people like him could do ‘clever things’. “This doesn’t mean that some of them aren’t idiots. A title only says you have some skills, not that you’re a decent human being with a minimum of intelligence.” he complained a little. Probably, he had met some people ho could serve as example but he wasn’t in the mood to mention them.
"Hm… you have a point." he admitted when he mentioned Medics. "But one can never be too sure that they haven’t done anything to themselves in order to be so fast. Who knows?" he shrugged as he kept organizing things. For some reason, he kicked an empty box out of his way when he went to fetch another one. There were barely two left to open. This one held, apparently, a bunch of junk.
"Thank you for being so positive about me, kid." he said. "When you’re done with that, you can leave if you want. You don’t need to be bossed around by anyone here, don’t let them tell you otherwise."
"Ehehe… I guess that makes sense. I mean, even if something is true, it can be hard to hear if itsn’t liked very much or a harsh thing that’s true," he added, with a small nod, "Well, yeah, that is true as well, ehe, like no news is good news, or however that goes."
Russell fell silent and tried not to react to the man’s laughing. He only remained silent for the time being, not wanting to accidentally offend the guy.
"Well, that is true, ehehe…" he said, rubbing the back of his neck, but not wanting to agree too much. The guy was an engineer after all, and had clearly earned that title. He didn’t exactly want to imply that the guy was an idiot despite having some skills, "You still seem pretty smart though, ehe, just saying…"
"Well, I do try to be a good human person, you know despite not always knowing how to go about it," he admitted, with another awkward chuckle escaping his lips.
"I guess that’s true too, maybe they like, give themselves a charge on their guns, or even take something before the battle," he said, "Maybe they drink Bonk behind our backs," he hoped he sounded lighthearted when he said that.
"Ehehe, that’s not a problem," he replied then, with a small smile, "It’s been nice to meet you, you know."
On that comment, perhaps it would be best. He had been here a while and sometimes people just needed to be alone.
"All right, thanks, man," he said then, with a nod, as he finished up just as he said that, "You have a good day."
