An Observation


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?

  1. Oh my goodness...Seriously? And here I was thinking all of your PG's were educated, self-aware and not, literally or otherwise, full of themselves...

  2. I am constantly surprised at how unaware most of us are. We have a young, recently divorced relative who rants on FB and has never realized that he is describing himself over and over. Being unaware seems to be a prevalent human condition . . . wish I could see myself from afar sometimes.

  3. Blissful ignorance I believe, Diane. I think they'd be truly shocked. I'm probably guilty myself.

  4. I agree, I notice that sort of contradiction frequently. People are either trying to fool themselves, or other people, that they're better than they are. I catch myself doing the same sometimes. But in general I admit I'm not always perfectly ethical in what I do and buy and consume. I'm not saintly and I don't pretend to be.

    1. I'm no saint, Nick but I do hope I am self aware - i.e. I despise I have to sometimes shop at Mallwart.

  6. We call these people "the la de da" crowd. You have got to visit us sometime, particularly our capital city New Delhi to see the worst of humanity there.

    1. The pace of life may have a lot to do with it, Ramana. Crowded cities have a stressful effect.

  7. I've yet to see a single hand-wringing middle-class politician of ours give up their spare room to a Syrian refugee family for an undisclosed number of years. And lately all our politicians are shutting up about the crisis completely as they realise that they really have bitten off more than they can chew in their public exortations that we should all welcome immigrants into our homes and country unreservedly! And apprently only one in five of those trying to come over are from Syria in the first place!

    1. Laura same in Canada. And the upcoming election has them ponderously debating women's rights without ONE MENTION of the 100+women murdered in Canada so far in 2015 by male partners or male exes. I can hardly breathe.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
