‘Someone doesn’t suffer fools gladly’

When you say that someone doesn’t suffer fools gladly, what you mean is that the individual doesn’t tolerate stupidity.

Example: The lady who teaches us English is a wonderful teacher. But she doesn’t suffer fools gladly. * My uncle is a fair man, but he doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
