It Ain't Easy

Ever have one of those days when you are so close to telling someone they are an idiot?
So close that you can just feel the words on the tip of your tongue.

I think I may be approaching one of those years.

People don't think before they speak or put something in an email or elsewhere on the internet.
They bitch and whine about wanting something, but they get it and they bitch about it.

Everything is so corrupt.
Every time I write one of my senators or congressmen, there is always a very good reason they don't agree with me.
The reason money is never given, but usually ends up being what it is.

It's always about the money.
Greed makes the world go round.

Why are the stupid people in charge?

Why does it have to be your way or my way? Why is there no middle ground?

Here are some of my rules to live by:

*Sometimes common sense is called for. You can do all the research you want, but sometimes you just gotta look out the window.
*Treating people with respect goes farther than you think.
*You can't just continue to take and take. Eventually you will hit that line that people just won't cross.
*Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
*If you have to hide what you are doing, you probably shouldn't be doing it.
*None of us have as much control over our lives as we'd like to think. You just gotta do what you can.

What are some of your rules to live by?

Have a great Thursday!


  1. Yes, stupid people take charge. And they are meanies too. Damn them.

    I hope it gets better for you and all around, Ruth.


    1. Robyn, Sometimes I just miss years ago. Things seemed simpler. But, it's good.I can come here and complain and feel just a little better about things.

  2. Great post. I'm not sure if I have any rules to live by mine is more like a prayer each day of Dear Lord please give me patience and keep your hand over my mouth today because you know I don't have any money for bail! ; )

    1. Gossip_Grl, sometimes that's the way it just has to be. :)

  3. Living (and born and raised) in the Bible Belt, I've built up a patience with people with low IQs and terrible personalities.

    1. Adam, when I lived in Arkansas, I got treated like I was the dumb one for questioning certain things.

  4. I needed to find extra patience today to listen to relatives explain why writing is a waste of my time. I failed. :-)

  5. Hi, Debi. I understand what you mean. Some people are never going to get it.
