.....where we fall short of standing up and having a little spine?
This is an off-shoot of the "Halloween costumes that make us post something on social media because our whole being is one nerve that just begs for someone to touch it even so gently?"
Whew, that was a mouthful!
I am really tired of anything that MIGHT happen that deserves some stupid 'hashtag' like #myopinionmattersmorethanyours or #letsget togethertobejellyfish or even #everyoneshouldhaveacrappyday.
Your electronic message isn't going to make any difference to anyone except to the other people without a spine.
I think I have sent about 11 text messages in my life and have no patience to read hacked up sentences like 'how r u, got 2 c U2 @UCLA 4 1 nite only"
Amazing how I need a dictionary to figure out what one and two letters mean, between the @ and #. My parents didn't send me to school to read hieroglyphics. If you want to, please carry on....
Which leads me to a phone in the classroom and why someone 'needs' to be yanked out of their seats during class.
Not a good look for the cop, but then again, I don't have to deal with smart arsed kid every single day.
When I was 17, my vocabulary was pretty much, F you and I hate my parents.
Here is the short list on THAT story....
Yep, no one deserves to get handled like that, but when you ask for a poop sandwich, don't be surprised when you are served one?
Everyone has a knee jerk reaction to the cop's answer to the problem and that is fine, but stop with the fake outrage and protestations.
Most of us were pretty hesitant to act that way - defy three levels of authority -in school, because we knew of the consequences!
I laugh because I would have BEGGED THE OFFICER TO KEEP ME IN JAIL because I knew that my mom was going to come bail my sorry arse out of the clink and the ride home and subsequent next few weeks were going to be more painful than any Circle Of Hell, broken bone or medieval punishment ever thought of.
And even then? I'd probably have to apologize to everyone later on for being an AH.
Cell phone manners?
No, there are no cell phone manners.
From the annoying light from the display at public gatherings, to the idiots who stop during any kind of event and MUST record it, the idiots at a register or sales rep that holds up a hand and answers their trilling phone and the idiot customer who CANNOT PUT THE CELL PHONE DOWN in order to pull out a credit card or money for their purchase......
Oh, before I forget?
Your 'ringtone' of rap music, complete with f### y##, b####, n##### isn't cute or charming, it's annoying and shows how stupid you are....The volume of your ringtone is irritating , too.
I know, I sound like an old fart, but the real reason is that I am ashamed and embarrassed that people are so dense and ignorant of other people's beings?
Like What IS The Matter with is all?
It's like all of our manners and common sense have disappeared!
Those are a few of the things that bother me. No, I don't want a fundraiser, twitter, hashtag or anything else.
It feels good to say them without making them a trend or having 100000000 people sign up to follow me on the interwebz.
God knows where I am going, so why should anyone follow me?
