You know how sometimes you think to yourself, “I should have said . . .” Well, I had one of those today about a Facebook meme that got a lot of play some time ago. I thought I would address it now, as both a random observation and a bit of half-baked philosophy for Lame Post Friday.
The meme shows an irate cartoon character, usually Tweety Bird, and reads, “I don’t need anger management! Other people need stupidity management!”
Yuk, yuk, yuk, very funny, it was so funny I forgot to laugh. This is why we have Road Rage, because people think they have a right to act any damn way they want! I never responded to this meme, because quite frankly, I did not want to get the person who posted it pissed off at me. If they didn’t come on over and beat me up, they would probably tell me to manage my own stupidity and that would probably hurt my feelings. I’m very sensitive about that kind of thing.
Later on, I thought of a better response. You cannot control other people; you can only control yourself. Unfortunately, too many people choose not to control themselves.
Well, there is a lot more that can be said on the subject There are arguments to be made such as you can’t control everything about yourself, and how other people’s behavior does so have an effect on you, etc. However, it would hardly be a bit of half-baked philosophy if I made thoroughly thought out argument. My only goal was to get to at least 200 words. Happy Friday, everyone.
