I Just Don’t Understand June 15, 2008

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

-Albert Einstein


I don’t understand people sometimes. Now granted, most of the time I enjoy people. This is not one of those times. I’m tired of people who do not take responsibility for their actions when their stupidity has taken over and gotten them into a sticky situation. For every decision you make, there is a consequence. And yet so many times they seem so surprised by the outcome. “Oh my gosh, I can’t understand why I’m pregnant! No, I didn’t use any sort of protection when I had sex. You don’t don’t think THAT had anything to do with it, do you?” (It’s not rocket science, y’all.) I’m also rather tired of standing back and listening to these people bitch, moan, and complain when all of a sudden their lives become more complicated. Upon further contemplation of the subject, I realize yet another reason why I so love Daniel. He tells people like it is. You’re being stupid and making rediculous decisions? He’ll be the first to tell you. He doesn’t pussy foot around people. Now granted, this causes him to seem like “the asshole” more times than not. But I find the honesty very refreshing. He’s not cruel. He’s just honest.  I have been striving to be a little more like that. Perhaps with more of a female flair, obviously. So today I had to tell my “friend” what I thought. I had to tell her that no, I did NOT agree with the decision she was making. That I actually think it’s the lazy way out of a situation that she has partially caused herself. That if she is looking to me for support on the matter, she will not get it. Plain and simple. Suddenly all the anxiety and emotion I had felt moments earlier on the matter cleared, now that she had no doubt of my true feelings and opinion. Thank you, Daniel, for being my inspiration of sorts and helping me to deal with these silly, infuriating people.
