I attempted to post this a few days ago from my android but blogger was having none of it.
I was mulling. As I am wont to do.
I've noticed something new in people recently - as in what they tell you or what they humble-brag about, are in direct conflict with their actions.
For instance, they will talk of their compassion and charity to the 3rd world in a careless or humble way ("it was the least we could do")and then every behaviour they exhibit shows anything but, as they drive away in their huge jeeps wearing their designer clothes made in child labour sweat shops.
"We're never any trouble, are we dear?" the guests affirm to each other and then proceed to demand a 3rd cup of coffee over a staggeringly late breakfast (giggle - we're till on Alberta hours! - giggle)even though they've already emptied the pot and you now have to make another.
"I always give to the beggars on the street, poor unfortunates, unless they're drunk or drugged or plain filthy, you know?"
And what kind of beggar performance would please you today, ma'am/sir?
