Whilst never judging (don’t laugh) anyone for their stupidity, I find myself at the thick edge of the wedge every now and again. Oh alright, I lied! I’m judgmental most of the time, aren’t we all? How many times have you criticised the validity of the parentage of another road user, or the worth of an older person getting in your way when you obviously have the most important (non more important) appointment? Have you ever heard anyone criticising YOU? (I haven’t)
That’s because we always say it when the time has passed for us to actually do anything about it. Just out of earshot or under the breathe. But why do we do it that way? Are we afraid of the consequences if the victim of our internal abuse hears our scathing attacks? Do we fear being hurt, or causing hurt? (Don’t ask me, I hate everyone who pisses me off) Point of order today! I sat enjoying a lovely Earl Grey and Club Sandwich in Tynemouth (it’s a bank holiday why not) and sat next to me were/ are three old dears chatting amongst themselves, NOT moving for the young waitress to give me my tea, NOT moving two minutes later when she came back with me sarnie. ‘Tutting’ at everything that is done around them. Slating people with Tattoos, whinging about motorbikes!!! In fact, whinging about EVERYTHING and ANYTHING! Just miserable twats! Please excuse me!
That’s better! I feel a thousand times better now. I’ve challenged them about tattoos and bikes and generally about the young people today. I couldn’t sit here and listen to that rambling shite anymore. I could have walked away and sat somewhere else, but where’s the fun in that. I wasn’t nasty OR horrible, I created a point and carried it through with no ‘Fucks/ Cunts or Shits’ I done good :). So to answer me own question about whey we don’t say these things out loud, I DO, we all should! Stop worrying about ‘offending’ someone! What is ‘offence’ anyway? It’s a point of view! You may not like mine and I certainly don’t like yours. I’m not going to get upset by someone not agreeing with me, but don’t think I’ll be quiet when I challenge you for your opinions. You can challenge me on mine anytime. I’ll construct a good argument and not lose me rag or cry.
