It's too true. I think I've finally reached the point of not understanding other human beings at all. Living and working in London I've come to see the really selfish side of people. I couldn't imagine being like them and I'm worried that very few people seem to care about how a large percentage of the population behave.

I work in customer service. Working there you soon learn that some people call in just to have an argument. I've had many customers who start off the conversation angry. And they don't actually have a problem (say it's a general inquiry). I could never, not in a million years, contemplate seeking out someone just to argue with them. It is, to me anyway, something that they should be deeply ashamed of.

Then you see those people out and about who can't seem to comprehend that other people exist. They stand on the left on escalators, they get in your way when you try to get off the train and they delight in walking very slowly in a zig zag pattern in front of you so no one else can get past. When commuting I spend a lot of time thinking about where I'm standing, walking and sitting. I think about it because I don't want to get in anyones way.

There is one man at Waterloo East who catches the same train as me home. I avoid standing near him because, despite the train having room, he will board the train and then... stop. Right there, in the doorway everyone is getting on at. There is room for him to stand to the side. Room for him to sit down. He could go to the other side of the train. But no he doesn't. And he doesn't wait to get on, he will push to the front of the crowd as the train pulls up. HE DRIVES ME MAD!

And then there's the people who don't have their tickets ready when they need to be checked. It's the same people every day. They suddenly look up and realise they need a ticket and stop, in everyones way, to search through their bag for it. I've got my ticket ready BEFORE I'm even off the train. Why? Because it means I don't need to worry about, I don't get in others way and I make the ticket collectors lives a little easier. Isn't that how we should all behave, doing our little bit to make other peoples lives better?

I'm sick of listening to my customers moaning about one thing or another. They are rude, arrogant (especially when they are wrong/stupid WHY IS THAT??) and it baffles me how these people can actually function in society.

I want to run away somewhere isolated with Jim, the Canadian wilderness for example. People scare me. I am just not like them.

attitude is back.

Charles Dera.... one person I could never hate...

  1. Hun, I know what you are saying, and I agree with you, but the thing that I have realised since being a regular commuter is that, in the vast majority of cases, these poeple just dont realise what they are doing, and are completely oblivious that what they are doing is, rude or ill mannered.

    Most of them would be mortified if you pointed it out to them. Its a fact of life that there are people out there that do not posses the intellect to evaluate the action/consequence and are purely fixated on just the action. Point in note, Mr Waterloo East. His only thought is "must get on train", once he is on there, his task is complete, therfore he stops. It is not even crossing his mind that there are other people behind him, or probably even in front of him for that matter. In fact he is probably already thinking of his next task of "must read newspaper".

    Do what I do, look at them and realise how crappy a life they must have to be that stressed and that ignorant, and you suddenly start to feel sorry for them rather than wanting to kick 10 bells of living sh!t out of them.

  2. It's to the point where I've begun to wonder if there is something psychologically wrong with me because I spend so much time constantly thinking of whether I'm inconveniencing anyone else, trying to be polite... Most of the time I think I'm the last person on Earth who does that - so there must be something wrong with me.

    I work in a casino. Fools and their money are soon parted and, once they are, they become very mean. I think you and I have a LOT in common! lol

    I hope it gets better... and if it doesn't, maybe we can just learn to laugh at they way others behave.

  3. Slightly OT, but a bit on topic as well:

    Ah...so that's why I did not receive my copys of Attitude. Phew...at least that mystery has been solved.

  5. Oh Jim I wish they were just stupid. But sometimes I've seen them look around planning their next EVIL move. No they are just selfish
