There are a lot of reasons why the country is in the shape it's in. I just realized that one of the biggest, in my opinion, is because so many people are fuckin' idiots. In every walk of life and everywhere you look, people are doing stupid things. Is it laziness? Apathy? I don't know, but does it matter? Granted, I don't personally know any C.E.O.s or captains of industry, but what makes them different from the rest of us. Lots of people in general can't drive, can't spell, and can't do their jobs competently. I see it all the time, assholes at the DMV, morons at the supermarket, don't get me started with customer service numbers. Fast food places that get your orders wrong, ladies that fuck up your haircuts, tellers giving you the wrong amount of change. People complain that robots or ATMs or change machines or whatever are going to be taking their jobs, well fuckin' learn how to count. You take your car in for a tune up and you get it back with stains in your car. It takes a week for the post office to send a letter across town. UPS tells you that you can't pick up your package until monday. The plumber never calls you back. The cable/gas/phone/electric guy can only come on Wednesday between the hours of 6:00 AM and midnight. The old person you're dealing with can't operate her computer, the young person you're dealing with is obnoxious and rude. Kids can't spell, they can't find Canada on a fuckin' map, and instead of letting nature take it's course we're helping stupid children grow up into stupid adults. If they're dumb enough to go swimming at night or wander into traffic or whatever I say let them. Natural fuckin' selection. Anyway, you might say it's the uneducated, the "lower classes", right? No, I'm telling you it's everyone. The last couple of weeks I saw it at the hospital too. Some of the nurses were complete idiots. Not to mention downright bitches. My sister, my wife, even I had to snap on some of them. The doctors and staff were pretty hit or miss too. Some were nice enough but others...arrrgh.
Seriously, bring on the apocalypse, Armageddon, whatever you want to call it. Or a huge war/natural disaster we need about half the population weeded out.
