SO we very rarely/never have any negative things to post but…
…I was thinking about how often I get annoyed with stupid people and then, ironically, how the rest of the time I must BE stupid people to everyone else.
There are sometimes though, that make me want to say mean things about people. I don’t think it would be in good taste to use a ‘power word’ on this blog so I am going to use a ‘sounds like’. Sometimes I think people are ‘Stickheads’.
For example, when there is a driver that fails to indicate when changing lanes the irony in that situation is that by failing to indicate they are in fact indicating that they are a stickhead.
There are times that I have had a ten minute conversation with someone only remembering later that it was their birthday and I never wished them a ‘Happy Birthday’ espesh when they had remembered mine and I had got a card, present AND cake from them. I am a stickhead.
There are times that someone stops in the middle of a walk way to talk to someone or with a trolley and refuses to move out of the way even though they know full well that they are in it. They are a stickhead.
There are times when I, distracted by a bird, cut someone up in traffic and expect them to accept my smile, shrug and wave as an apology. I am a stickhead.
There are times when someone posts something ignorant, hateful or preachy as a status that causes an all out social network war that noone shall win. They are a stickhead.
There are times when I get totally sucked in and contribute my fair share to the social network war that noone shall win. I am a stickhead.
There are times when someone who you care about and have trusted does something that smarts. They are a stickhead.
There are times when I have out of insecurity, tiredness, jealousy or hormones have said or done something careless to someone I care about. I am a stickhead.
Then there are times I don’t give someone the grace I wish they would give me. I am a proper stickhead then.
Then there are times when I don’t realise my fog lights are on for two months.. yep 2 months!!! … or when I see ‘peppermint’ but read ‘pepper mint’ and say loudly, ‘Oh gosh! Pepper Mints, pepper flavoured mints that is DISGUSTING .. oh wait, peppermint. Oh yeah!’ Then I am not a stickhead I just verge on massive stupidity! Hopefully lovable stupidity!
Anyway, I guess after thinking about all the things that ‘get my goat’ – er, where does that saying even come from!? – I came to the conclusion that people are stickheads and I am a stickhead.
Either we be stickheads together or give each other a break. I vote give each other a break. Maybe I will even try and be a nicer person?!
No really. I am trying to be a nicer person.
Let’s be nice together?
