I started a new job about a month ago (driving/delivering ice) where i work ALOT and deal with customers ALOT and i mostly go to gas stations where there are constant flows of random people all day. I've noticed most people are worthless assholes. Like one thing my Dad taught me when i was young was be cool to people in public, respectful and such. I honestly get the rudest looks from all sorts of people its insane. I swear 85% of the people i come in contact with or look at on a daily basis look like someone shit in their frosted flakes and then were forced to eat it. Like dude i had one of the worst days EVER yesterday, worked 14 hours and had a migraine all day, had to deal with incompetence and horrible traffic, BUT i don't take it out on other people. I still am able to kinda hide that away and be decent to other people. I feel like i can look at someone and just know, yep, they're a POS. Doesn't matter age, gender, race etc either people just suck. I'm 27 so its weird to be saying this now, i guess i just never really realized how shitty people are. I mean i worked in retail as a kid and dealt with assholes but i guess being younger it didn't bug me as more for whatever reason. For example a dude working in the back at Wal-Mart (was delivering ice there), old white dude was just a COMPLETE dick, for no fucking reason. Like never been there before, was being friendly with the guy, and he just had this little attitude with everything he said to me. Like does your life really suck that bad? If your life sucks keep that shit to yourself ffs. We all have things that go wrong in our day, and reasons to be pissed, but would a little common courtesy fucking kill people? We all don't need to be friends but honestly i never noticed how much most people hate their lives/selves/other people haha. Maybe its just where i live i don't know. Anyone else have to deal with shitty people all day? Like being a cold call salesmen, there's no fucking way i could ever do that. I take it personal when people are rude to me, which i guess is my fault and i shouldn't let it get to me. I agree with Bill, even if I'm one of the mediocre people its fucking true and that's part of the problem.
