People go on and on about common sense and how no one has it anymore.
There has even been an obituary written about it and you can read it here.
But, I have noticed another trend coming along hard and fast.
It's lack of empathy.
The older I get, the more things I realize.
The more I look at things from the other person's point of view.
I think everyone should.
But, they don't.
They choose not to.
Or, it just isn't in them to do so.
Lots of times people forget where they come from.
My father's family was dirt poor, grew up on what is now called welfare.
Many of my cousins and aunts and uncles call anyone getting government assistance lazy.
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you need help.
You can work you ass off.
Go to college and you still are just making it.
No, I am not saying that being on assistance is good.
Nobody would choose to grovel for help like that.
Maybe a small minority, but not everyone should get lumped in together.
People and debt.
You should never ever use a credit card.
If you can't afford it, you don't need it.
Maybe money can't be saved and the car needs fixed so you can go to work and pay bills.
People make fun of other people that ride in scooters at the store because they don't look sick.
How do you know?
I don't look sick, but drive me around in a car for about a hour and watch me try and walk when I get out. It ain't pretty.
No, I don't use scooters.
I just walk it off.
There is not just one reason that people do things.
Some people want to and some people need to for whatever reason.
I just get tired of the whole " You need to do this" and " That isn't right" thinking and preaching.
