I haven’t updated in a week and I feel no obligation to do so. I write this so I can look back on it in years and say “wow, what was I thinking.” My goal isn’t to entertain the masses but to keep myself occupied. I’m going to write about things that people do that I don’t get.
When people ask the question “really?” after someone just said they have done something. Unless the person is a pathological liar, chances are they aren’t making it up. I catch myself asking this from time to time and it really should be deleted from everyone’s vocab. However, there are certain times I would say it’s ok. For example, I went to a bottomless mussel restaurant and ate 7 bowls. “Really” is unacceptable. Why would anyone lie about eating 7 bowls of mussels, is it really that unbelievable that is constitutes asking really? Now if I say I went to an asian massage parlor and got some up and down action and then busted in her some pretty little girls face, that would be ok to ask “really” do to the extremeness of the situation. All I can say is just pay attention to how often you say this and see if it’s appropriate when you use it.
I can’t stand when I’m sitting at a traffic light and people are making turns in front of me and they start peering into my car to check me out. Do I have something hanging out of my nose? This bothers me beyond belief. Keep your eyes on the road and out of my car. It’s like an invasion of privacy. I have no care at all about the other drivers on the road. The only time I care whose in the car is when I see them do something stupid like cut someone off or drive over the median, and then I’ll racially profile them. This warrant a drive up to check out to see if my accusastions are correct. Or if I think the girl could be a hottie then I’ll take a look. Problem is there isn’t much to do even if she is attractive. It’s tough to start a conversation. I could do a stupid wave. Or I could show how much of a badass I am by speeding by, but that only leaves me by myself 100 yards ahead of where I want to be. Bottom line, keep your eyes outta my car.
I see people walking all the time when they are “exercising”. Maybe this is all they can muster up, a slow walk. I don’t considering walking exercise. If I walk a golf course, then maybe, just maybe, am I getting any so called exercise. That’s probably about 4-5 miles of walking. If it’s too hard to jog, try power walking. Anything that actually makes you make an attempt at trying. Our society has gotten so lazy that it doesn’t surprise me shit has hit the fan with the whole economic situation. Everyone is looking for shortcuts. Or ways to get by without doing shit. The slothfulness of people is just getting worse with each generation. I have no heart for people who give no effort and ask the questions “why aren’t things the way I think they should be?”
The blame game pisses me off. Nowadays people don’t take responsibility. In my business there is no hiding behind other people. If something goes wrong, there aren’t a lot of people to pin the blame on. When I fuck up, I man up. These are important characteristics to have. The ability to make a decision, followed by the ability to say you were wrong. Blaming other people and making excuses for when things go wrong is a pussy’s mentality. I’m going to call out my roommate as an example but I don’t think he’ll mind. I’ll say, “can you get us a case of water tomorrow.” He replies, “sure thing.” I come home the next day, “where’s the fucking water?” “TC, I had to go to work early and then JP had me on a top secret project and I got stuck in traffic so I couldn’t stop to get it.” Bullshit. You’re telling me you didn’t have 3 minutes in your day to stop by a CVS and buy a case of water. Don’t take it personal Wagon.
I hate this fucking chair. The thing creaks whenever I lean back. I want to throw this piece of shit across the room just to shut it up. It actually affects my state of mind knowing that I have to sit perfectly still just so the chair doesn’t making any goddamn noise. This is my biggest concern. I don’t mind people have swine flu, the gov’t wastes the tax payer money, or that North Korea wants to blow the shit out of us. I’m considering just spending a k on a new chair just to avoid this issue with a hundred dollar pos.
Does the average person have these same thoughts? Sometimes I think people get so wrapped up in everyday nonsenses that they don’t care about the stuff that’s really important like using the term really or what chair they sit in. These are the things that matter. These are the things that we deal with day after day.
