I try very hard not to judge others. I try and realize that their life experiences are not mine, and that they are just doing the best they can. But sometimes I shake my head in disbelief at things. Luckily, most of these things are unimportant but they bother me nonetheless.
I don't understand when you get coffee EVERY DAY at someplace like Starbucks, and you don't have a reusable cup. A new paper cup every day, or sometimes two? Really? I mean, I don't understand when people buy coffee at places like this every day period. That's like 10 bucks a week in coffee. And it's not even good coffee!
I don't understand when you ride my ass on a surface street, or cut people off on the freeway to get a few car lengths ahead. Did you know the average time saved from driving like a jackass saves you 20 seconds of commute time? Congratulations, you just almost killed several people to save 20 seconds. I have a weird idea: get up earlier in the morning so you don't have to rush to work.
I don't understand when you are applying make up while driving. See that last one. Get up earlier and manage your time better. You're putting people in danger. And if you have a kid in the back seat while you're doing this, don't be shocked if at a stoplight someone like me runs up and pounds on your window and accosts you for being so thoughtless.
I don't understand people who complain they don't have the time to feed their kids healthy food. Umm, my mom and dad both worked and I NEVER went to school without having had breakfast, and I ALWAYS had a healthy lunch packed. Never a Lunchable. Never a hot pocket. A sandwich, some fruit or veggies, and a treat. That treat was either chips or a ho ho or ding dong. Shut up about the names of the sweets of my youth. They are awesome. Pack their lunch at night.
I don't understand when you are always late, and think it's part of who you are or a "cute" trait. Umm, no. When you are consistently late you are telling everyone, "My time is way more important than yours. I am an entitled jerk. I will never care about how this affects other people."
I don't understand people who constantly worry themselves with the life choices of others. If their choices don't directly harm you or the world around you in some way, get over it. I find that people who do this the most are people who are unhappy with their own life and rather than concentrating and fixing it, act up in arms about the way that someone else lives. This is called deflecting, and I just don't understand it. Who cares about the fat/skinny lady at the restaurant? Why do you worry about how much weed your neighbor smokes? In what way is your life altered, because that man wants to marry another man? It's like I always say, "If you don't believe in abortion, don't get one." It's a pretty simple philosophy.
See how that last one made me a complete hypocrite? Yep, I know that is true of myself as well. I could write this for pages to come, but I won't. I need to stop trying to figure out why people act the way they do. It's always been one of my obsessions, and I am working on letting it go.
Happy picture of the day, from failbook. So true:
