...with PEOPLE today???? I am walking my dog yesterday afternoon around 4:30 pm. Beautiful April afternoon...sun's shining, a little breeze but unseasonably warm in the Northeast. I'm feeling great!! Then, I glance at the right-hand rear door of my car for a second...and it hits me like a ton of lead. Some complete JE*K-OFF must have slammed their door into my door, causing an unsightly ding about 3/4 inch in diameter where the paint has literally chipped off, and a nice little crease dent about 3 inches long to go along with it. Can I tell you all...it's like a big dark cloud suddenly appeared over my head, and the rains began to fall like so many swords of damacleus!!! Am I upset about the damage to my car, which I care for meticulously? Yeah, to be honest, I am. However - what REALLY ****es me off about this whole situation is what is happening to our society these days, where... A) You can't be considerate or careful enough to open a car door without using it as a battering ram against the car next to you, and B) You can't be considerate or.,,nay, let me say, HUMAN enough to leave a note saying you're sorry, and maybe, where to get hold of you for compensation, since you made a mistake. Really???? This is not the country/world/society where I was brought up. I was raised and taught to do my best to be considerate of others. To take responsibility for your actions. To do the best you can to be the best PERSON you possibly can. And during those times where we fail to do these painfully simple things (and we all fail at this from time to time - heck knows I've made many mistakes and I will make them again!), I was brought up to OWN UP TO YOUR ACTIONS and MAKE AMENDS where POSSIBLE, whenever possible!!!!! So...you are that self-absorbed, and in that much a hurry at a convenience store that you have to damage someone else's property?? What, are they going to run out of coffee or cigarettes if you spend the precious 2 FRIGGIN' SECONDS it would take you to insure your door doesn't slam into mine???? Furthermore, you are that big of an A**HOLE that you can't take a second to jot down an "I'm sorry" note???? WHAT THE HALIBUT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE????? Sheesh...IMHO people today just plain suck...sorry for the rant.
