Now there’s barely even a moment for someone to send a text. Sure, you can spend more and more money on a pen or pad of paper you’re itching to buy, or that you see online, and just impulsively tap that Pay button, and it gets delivered.
But then you want or need more. Why? Why is it that, ‘just enough’, isn’t? What has happened to the thrill? Why won’t things last? It’s just not satisfying anymore, with any serious lasting validity.
People are not like they used to be and times or people in the world have changed. They expect or demand more and can tolerate less. They’re very vocal and confrontational, with very little positive response. In many ways they behave like folks would never imagine people do today, say, 20 years ago. Hell, even 15 years back people were a lot more patient, polite. So people have changed and the world has too, but still there are the basic elements of people and how they do things and folks are good, up to a point, by and large. Our perspectives are altered perhaps? One gets a sense people nowadays are insane and yet prima facie all right. At least to begin. But it can all go sideways at a moment’s notice. We have to be careful and watch out.
To see the thing or experience it, you must know its opposite it seems. We were cleaning out the pool the other day. Nice to have the debris gone, sure.
It’s wonderful to be able to swim these days. However, as wonderful as the pool is alone in the morning at 3 AM, it’s not going to be that way forever, just, only, when, it’s HOT and Humid! That’s the Trade Off, they say. Sure, you can park Close to the trolly stop, but it means too, you’re further away from the exit, when it’s time to go. You can be close to the way out when you park, but you’ll be far from the shuttle stop as well. Trade Off’s, they call them. People deal with it, or they don’t. And they all act a frustrated fool, by voicing complaints and driving erratically, dangerously, and stupidly in the lots around walking families. There’s a reason it’s called “Vehicular Manslaughter.” People do it every day. Plenty of “people”(We use the term loosely.), act insane like this each and every day. Not all of the people do, but enough to be a great concern. Plenty for it to be an issue and a serious drain.
What a waste of life and humanity. Used to believe in so much for it, but it seems a lost cause. It’s enough to make one weep, but why bother? There’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop or correct the behaviour. And, it’s not your job. It’s EVERYONE’S! But not everyone thinks of it and not everyone will. Sad. So sad. What’s to become?
