The Following

The picture about says it all – doesn’t it? The kids are running out in front o the parents, probably not listening (and of course saying things under their breath about their parents and how dumb they are).

BTW – doesn’t “The Following” sound like a great horror/thriller? Well, to some parents I guess it probably is.

Anyway ….. to get to something that has maybe has substance:

Duck Sauce ….. those chicks need Duck Sauce. Christmas is coming up and the only thing I see when looking at that pic is the traditional feast that was on the table in A Christmas Carol – I just gotta figure out how to make the pudding.

I’m probably making absolutely no sense, but I’m not feeling well, so I have an excuse …… what excuse does the rest of the planet have? Here is the point, very little activities happen in this country any more without generating a following. Presidential elections, rock band, religious cults, curly fries, etc … the reason they succeed so well as opposed to latter days is the fact that people no longer want to think. That became very apparent this election when I constantly heard followers of the republican and democratic parties repeating exactly what they heard on TV – substantiated or not. When asked why the thought the way they did they either didn’t have answer, reacted like Palin and repeated the previous answer, or went into a completely clueless coma and just stood there.

WTF? We used to be able to think – not just follow the cookie cutter idiot in front of us.

The people I know that lost their jobs due to outsourcing many times were people that wanted to only do the same thing each day and collect a paycheck. Now they work for a popular fast food company. Personally I think they upgraded their careers – but I’ve been working my career for a long time now and I’m fairly jaded. They were good workers, but someone else wanted to do it better. Yes, there is more to it than that, so don’t think I’m an outsourcing supported – my job is overseas now, too. I just had enough ambition to get a better job – with a ton more responsibilities and headaches, but that’s another post.

Look at the picture again …. those kids (goslings) aren’t being rude or disrespectful to their parents – they are doing what their parents don’t have the guts to do ……. lead.

Think about it.

Working yourself into the ground in your job isn’t the answer.

Doing the minimum at your job isn’t the answer.

Maybe thinking beyond the boxes is and going where others fear.
