WHY SO ANGRY?
A Cranky Opinion For
CRANKY OPINION SATURDAY
The Following is the opinion of a cranky old man with no particular expertise on the subject opined. Opposing opinions are welcome...they will be ignored, but they are welcome, and as always, please, no name calling, and that means you, you big stupid head.
I don’t like dancing, but it doesn’t make me angry. I even watch "Dancing With The Stars" because Mrs. C’s hobby is ballroom dancing and she works for a dance studio.
I don’t like sewing, but it doesn’t make me angry. I even appreciate the things that skilled sewing provides.
I don’t like fashion and fashion shows, they seem pretentious and silly, but they don’t make me angry. I even watch "Project Runway" with the wife.
I don’t like opera. I don’t like Broadway Shows, I don’t like Ballet, I don’t like concerts, but none of these things make me angry, and I will from time to time go to these events. Sometimes I even enjoy myself.
There are thousands of hobbies and events that I do not particularly like or understand. None of them make me angry.
I watch a lot of TV. I often read posts where people claim to not only dislike TV, but their tone would make you believe that TV actually makes them angry, and they seem to convey a certain superiority for not liking TV.
Football makes some people angry. Oh yes it does, I’ve seen it with many wives including two ex-wives. They hate that their husbands get enjoyment from watching football and other sports.
Golf makes some people angry…oh yes it does too; I was married to someone that actually got angry if they saw it on TV.
Politics makes people angry. Disagree with someone’s politics and you are a stupid non-thinking automaton. There is no other explanation, the other guys political opinion is always based on greed and or stupidity.
Religion makes people angry. Some people get so angry about religion they will kill you if you don’t believe as they do. Some people just get angry if people have any belief in a higher power at all.
I get it, you don’t like some things, or you have a different opinion from others. Do you have to get angry about it? Are you so superior that anyone who thinks differently from you has to be a moron? Is there no room for different points of view?
“Look at that jerk; he’s wearing a striped shirt and checkered pants, what a bozo!” Hey, maybe he likes that look. Maybe his wife likes that look. Maybe some people just have different tastes. Why is your taste the correct one?
There are cultures that get up in your face when they talk. If you back away they are insulted. Other cultures are insulted if you don’t respect their personal space. Wars have been fought because space respecters back away from close talkers. Personal tastes and cultures are incorrectly interpreted as disrespect, and disrespect is interpreted as hate, hate makes people angry and anger starts wars.
People are different. People like different things. It is hard sometimes to understand why people are different and like different things, but it should not make you angry.
Everyone needs to relax. People need to respect different cultures, different opinions, different things, different tastes and styles. Don’t get angry at something just because you don’t understand it.
People that get angry about things they don’t agree with or understand just piss me off!
The preceding was the opinion of cranky old man, and not necessarily that of management...Mrs. Cranky.
