I see stupid people… they’re everywhere… they walk around just like the rest of us… they don’t even know they’re stupid…
Today, took the cake. I was coming home from Albertsons and came to a stop light at the intersection of 2 subdivisions. As my light turned green, a small SUV came from the left and stopped in the middle of the intersection waiting for the car from the other direction (who had correctly stopped because she saw the light was red). When the car from the other direction didn't go (through the red light) the dumb shit who was stopped in the intersection honked at her and flipped her off. Suddenly, he realized he was sitting in the middle of a red light and that I should have just run his ass over, so he decided to turn and go on about his merry, blame-the-other-person-for-my-dumb-ass-mistakes, life. What the hell. Are people really that stupid?
The other day, I was standing in the aisle of the store looking at something on the shelf and a woman walked past me and almost knocked me over. As I ALWAYS do, I turned to her and said "Oh, I'm sorry" - even though I knew it wasn't MY fault, and expected her to say the same thing - at the very least. She made no eye contact - even though she was standing right next to me and said nothing. It was all I could do to not slap her right across the face and say "Look you dumb ass, you almost knocked me over but don't have the sensibility or decency to say sorry!" I'm only too willing to admit the stupid things I've done (and still do) in life - just ask me, I'll even give them to you in alphabeltical order.
What has our world come to that everybody feels so damn comfortable blaming ANYBODY but themselves for their stupid mistakes in life? I just don't freakin' get it. If you do something stupid - admit it! If you say something stupid - say you're sorry! There's never anything wrong with admitting you're a dumb ass. I've done it so often I can't count. I've apologized to my kids for putting them through some of the things I've put them through in their lives, I've apologized for things I know I haven't even done wrong just to keep the peace in life (such as apologizing every freakin' time somebody else bumps into me). But I'm done. I'm just freakin' done. If your life is so pathetic that you can't even take responsibility for yourself, then keep the hell away from me because frankly, I've got enough of my own problems and I sure as hell don't want to be any part of your sorry-ass life.
My son Jake just posted something on Facebook which I absolutely love: "I'm pushing you down the Stairs of Enlightenment, so that you might find the Floor of Understanding at the bottom." You see, if people would WALK down the stairs of Enlightenment, they wouldn't have to be freakin' pushed. Take responsiblility for your life and what you do to others!
I'm sure that here in a few days, I'll even apologize for this post. But not today. Today, I'm tellin' it like it is.
