How would you feel if a friend told you that they thought you hated everything? I was surprised when a friend told me that. She continued to explain (without a breath)
you hate driving, you hate eating dinner before eight, you hate bright lights in restaurants, you hate bugs and wildlife, you hate the early to bed early to rise mentality, you just hate
Suburbia. Okay, okay, I know you love NYC. Everyone knows you love NYC, but you hate it when anyone confuses NYC with New York, because as you've said way
too many times, the two are not
Phew, first of all, I was glad that she actually heard a few things I've said in the past and remembered them! Kudos for that in itself because I really thought this girl lived in her own little spoon fed Suburban bubble. I may dislike
many things, but hate
ain't in my vocabulary.
I dislike holiday ads that start in August. I dislike not hearing "please" or "thank you". I dislike that most companies have automated phones and a lack of human connection. I dislike being seated in an empty restaurant next to the only other occupied table. I dislike the automatic response "fine" or the overused words "amazing" and "awesome". Really are there that many things that are amazingly awesomely fine? I think not! I dislike when families gather around the TV watching sports during a family get together, what's the point? Once again a lack of human connection, not everyone likes sports. Is the only connection thru the TV? I cannot understand the concept of being PC. We now have to watch everything
that we say because it may not be "acceptable". I could go on but I feel better already just by letting it out.
Now back to my friends comment about me "hating"
everything. I had to wait and think, before I responded to her (a rarity for me).
It took me a moment as I explained to her, that although I may dislike many things, I don't hate
anything. Wait a minute, let me rephrase that... the only thing I "hate"
if the word has to be used is stupidity. Yeah, that's right, I hate
stupidity. I really get pissed when people don't question things and just take things for granted. Just doing what's always been done because that's how it's always
been done! WTF? I hate
that, but then again... I hate everything.
