For every cause there is an effect. The Turtle is struggling with that right now. You let hate flourish and you end up with Donald Trump. Melania is upset that her husband is being compared to Hitler? “He wants to help America. He wants to unite people” She doesn’t get it. He didn’t start out killing Jews. He started out blaming Jews for what was wrong with Germany. And that united Germany. Now do you get it? Oh well it was worth a shot.
More cause and effect. We have a particularly selfish streak in our society right now. We don’t compromise, we want what we want and the hell with the rest of you. You know, the guy in traffic that shoots all the way to the front even though there’s a big freaking fire engine blocking off two lanes for a huge accident, just to pick up a few car lengths when he merges at the last minute? Or shoots up the Fastrak lane only to switch out because he doesn’t have a Fastrak? And jacks up the whole traffic flow? But that’s what he needs right now and the hell with the rest of us.
I had a perfect example of this last Sunday night. We managed to get great spots at the Fillmore for the Acoustic for a Cure concert. James Hetfield, Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Melissa Etheridge, John Mayer, Tommy Lee and Pat Monahan. It was the floor and there was no seating. This dude about halfway through the show pushed in front of me and just stood there. He was slightly taller than me and blocked me out. I said “Keep moving dude.” He just stood there. I repeated a little louder “Keep moving dude”. And I wasn’t the only one. He says “Wow, not a very friendly crowd”. Dude, we’re plenty friendly when you’re not a douchebag. Here’s the deal, you act like an ass and get bent when we call you on it. You self entitled little prick. Check yourself. And do us all a favor, if you can’t, wreck yourself.
Yesterday in traffic, little douchebag, plenty of places to merge. Not this self entitled little jerk off. He waits to the very front and jacks up traffic at the 580 split. Then he gives the driver who let him in a little wave like “Hey thanks”. Jerkoff. The thing is, little douchebag, what if someone behind me doesn’t notice that you’ve stopped traffic because you think you’re better than everyone else? What if I get rear ended? Wouldn’t be the first time that scenario ended like that. And now I’m hurt because you think you’re better than the rest of us. You put me in harms way for a couple of car lengths. You suck and should just go die.
PEOPLE! Listen up! You are part of a society. Act civilized. Be considerate. Check yourself before your wreck yourself. Don’t make me quote Ice Cube. Dammit!
