Make sure your volume is up! 🙂
I’m going to try something new. I spend my life on my computer at work and sometimes I can’t bear to type one more word by the end of the day.
So, IT’S VIDEO TIME!!!!
Please be kind as this and the ones that will follow are all off the top of my head, foibles and all, so I may look utterly ridiculous. Actually, that’s pretty much guaranteed. I’m okay with that!
Here’s Truth 1: Fuck ’em
I’m at a resort in Tucson, Arizona right now. Not on vacation as I still have to work all day (God bless working from home) but I did run up to the pool area during lunch to check it out. While I was there this guy, who had an AMAZING looking woman on his arm, was paying no attention to her and had his tongue hanging out at every girl who walked by. I’m quite certain he will need a neck brace by the end of his stay from all the head-turning going on.
You could easily tell his girl was P.I.S.S.E.D. off. She had her arms folded across her ample chest. She had an “I’m going to murder you in your sleep” look on her face. And her right hand was twitching uncontrollably. You would have to be blind to NOT see the rage pouring off this poor girl.
My first reaction was to go up to the guy and punch him in the face. Since I wasn’t in the mood for prison, my second thought was to go up to him and tell him what a buffoon he is. But he was a pretty big guy and I was a chicken. My third thought was to go apologize to his girl for the fact that her man is a complete asshat and recommend she immediately leave (or poison) him. Alas, I kept my nose out of it, though it was a challenge.
Here are my thoughts for the day regarding being a dumbass (whether you are male or female):
People talk about the Golden Rule. Treat others as you want to be treated. I have that view and another one. I call it the Platinum Rule. Treat others as they want to be treated. Men and women are different. We think differently, we act differently, we communicate differently. And that’s good. It’s okay to have differences. But underneath it all, we all want to be treated kindly and with respect. Believe me, you will be in awe over how wonderful your life can be if you treat others well. They become nicer and happier. As a result they’ll be nicer to you. Then you’ll be happier too. That, my friends, is a win/win situation.
Now all I need to find is my stepladder as standing way up on this soapbox is scary. Time to get down! 😉
