Have you ever seen those labels with the obvious warnings on toxic bottles: “Do not drink,” or the really stupid commonsense ones, “Do not wrap around neck,” etc? There are so many of these labels and simple directions in the world, and you know that the company has to put those warnings on the label because some idiot out there did the exact thing they are describing.
Why are so many of us lacking common sense? Honestly, God did not make people that dumb. That was definitely the nurture side of things. Yes, I like President Bush, but he definitely goes under attack for saying dumb things. I chuckled when, in his interview with Barbara Walters, he said that for the next four years he will be more cautious with his words.
And when someone chooses what to wear to a costume party, they put some thought into it, because like me, they certainly don’t want to look like some idiot.
Well, obviously, Prince Henry didn’t get that memo when he decided to dress as a Nazi for a costume party. Honestly! I know this is 2005, and people are supposed to be accepting and tolerant of everyone’s individuality and their preferences, but come on!
I just wonder what he was thinking when he came up with his bright idea, then actually executed his idea and wore it in public. Maybe he just wanted a costume that would attract attention, and he certainly received more than his brother, Prince William, in his lion costume. Choosing whether or not to wear a Nazi costume to a party, especially when you are in the public eye and royalty, in my opinion, would have a commonsense answer, but in case any other people have lingering doubts, heed my words, it is not a good idea.
There are so many examples in the world, and particularly this state, of how people can be ridiculously moronic. One example, of my generation, would be the people who buy the new style of jeans that are outrageously expensive because they put holes in them for you.
I thought the mud stained jeans were bad when they came out. One of my friends came over, and she had recently purchased her pair of jeans with absolutely gorgeous holes (being sarcastic, in case you didn’t notice), and she told me she paid $95 for them. I know I don’t have much style sense, but I know when people are wasting their money. I told my friend she could have bought a simple pair of jeans, and I would have ripped holes in them for $5 a piece, and that would have saved her some money. Honestly, back in the day, people wouldn’t even wear jeans with natural tears and rips in them. I know my grandparents are rolling in their graves at that thought.
There seems to be an endless lack of these living proof examples among us. Remember, the gal who put the hot cup of McDonald’s coffee between her legs and then got mad when it spilled on her? Yeah, those are the examples I am talking about.
The only cure I have when you meet these certain types of people is to break out laughing at them. Otherwise, you may be sucked into their logic and way of thinking, and become lost among them.
