3 Mini-Rants

13 Jul

1. That lane to the far left? It’s called a “passing lane.” Not a “park your butt there going 50 miles an hour while you talk on your phone and drink Starbucks lane.” Some of us have places to go, people to see, things to do. Also? Kids in the back seat we are TRYING NOT TO SWEAR IN FRONT OF.

2. If you have a “sports” talk show where you routinely discuss whether or not you’d “hit it” with various female reporters, LPGA players, Tiger Wood’s mistresses, etc? And said show is routinely sponsored by strip clubs and adult video stores? You do NOT get to go on a self-righteous tirade about what misogynist jerk Mel Gibson is.

Yeah, he is.

So are you. Pot, meet kettle. People who live in glass sexist pig pens shouldn’t throw stones.

3. ¬†When lots of people are excited and talking about something and sharing a joint experience that unites them as a global community, like say World Cup Soccer? Even if that’s not your thing, it doesn’t make you cool or superior to spend all your time posting on Facebook or Twitter or whatever about how much you don’t care about that thing. It makes you seem like a petulant toddler in the stage of saying “No!” to everything. Just talk about something else. Join another conversation. You don’t have to like what everyone else likes. But if it’s a harmless, happy thing? Let them like it.

All done now. Your turn.
