Things to Ponder…

Does anyone use the word “please” or is it just a given that they are entitled to something and therefore the word is not required?

Why are some people just bitchy assholes EVERY, SINGLE day of the year?

When did we become so self-absorbed?

Why do some people believe the world revolves around them?

Why does the festive season bring out the worst in mankind?

Why has Facebook become the first thing people turn to when they need to express their emotions?

What did we do with our spare time before social media and Candy Crush?

Do you really care if a Facebook friend cleared a level on Candy Crush?

Why does Facebook recommend “people that I may know” that only appear to be porn stars? Do they know something I don’t?

Does anyone read anything other than status updates anymore?

Why do the Internet Nazis allow me access to social media sites, but not the Weather Network?

Why do we wish our lives away and only live for the weekends?

Does anyone send Christmas cards anymore?

Why does work always feel like an exercise in self-preservation?

Is “thank you” really that difficult of a word to say?

Why do friends feel more like acquaintances than true friends anymore?

Since when has complaining become about everything become a sport?


As you can tell by this post, it’s been one of those days, weeks, months. Actions speak louder than words and lately, people’s actions are screaming at me. I’ve lost a lot of respect for certain people in my life and I’m hoping it’s only a momentary hiccup. I have hope for humanity and that suddenly we will realize what tools we’ve become and how social media is to blame. Wake up people. You’re not special - we’re all idiots.

Not to be negative, but I dont see it getting better.

And the technology folks aint doing anything to help either. ALways a new tool to help isolate folks.

Well, not so good on the not negative part.
@Simply Suthern - I don't see it getting any better either and that's what's most frustrating. I've decided instead of letting it get to me, I'm taking it upon my self to let people know when they have crossed the "socially acceptable line" and are acting like spoiled brats. Don't suspect I'll be getting many Christmas cards this year...

I love to send X-mas cards! I think they are fun and I especially love to receive them :)

As for getting better? I simply pruned the bad ones off, so it got better but there are less branches on that tree.
