If you decide consciously that you are not going to play by the rules that the rest of us play by, don't be surprised when the rest of us look at you as though you're an idiot.

You should reconsider your overuse of the word 'that'. Your first sentence would be more readable as follows: "If you decide consciously you are not going to play by the rules the rest of us play by, ..."

Removing the unnecessary 'thats' results in a cleaner, more natural sentence. Also, you really aren't supposed to start sentences with the word 'and'. ;)


FCM, who still struggles in removing 'thats' from typed correspondence and understands your failure in this area.

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
