    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.

    Dude, consider yourself lucky that you have been blessed with SOME insight and a decent overall attitude..Yea most people are asleep at the wheel, completely unaware of the miracle that is this life , push on, stay nice, and continue to be a bright light for the less fortunate, who knows what a positive impact you might have on one person...

    Yet, most people subscribe to the theory that "most people suck". Maybe you people are are part of the problem, no?

    I don't see the logic in that, I'm simply observing and taking in data.

    Please use standard text in the future. Most people are OK. I don't like overgeneralizing the entire human population. We are inherently selfish, because we are forced to look after our own needs above others. I don't think that means we're all assholes, although we all can be at times.

    I just think it's weird that "Most people suck" is said by most people.

    in my life (i am younger than you), i have found people to be courteous and kind, depending on the situation/context, of course, but i understand that within each person. . . there is a spectrum of malice, which -- when adding up a person's life history, temperament, current environment, etc. -- can sometimes shift. when i read your story i think: people at gas stations, giant chain stores are USUALLY not in the best space mentally. these are transient places, and nobody REALLY wants to be there -- ever. you're there in order to get what you need. the area you are in plays a big factor, too, because you might be more guarded if it's not the best area to begin with.

    the person can inflict great trauma. i don't think this job should sour you though.

    I was pumping gas as a side job in school at a gas station in a shitty neighborhood when the price went through the roof around 1999, all of a sudden according to our shitty customers I was solely responsible for the worldwide oil price. Certainly inspired me to study hard and remove myself from dealing with the general public for a living.

    Great post and i agree. I just think it doesn't take too much effort to take the "fuck you" look off your face for a few seconds while interacting with others.

    Most *Americans* suck.

    People in Europe are fine. Except the toothless English, of course. And Russians.

    People only seem to suck if they don't meet your expectations. Nobody is obliged to be nice to you, even though that would be nice. A lot of people have issues and live their lives suppressing their negative emotions instead of being honestly addressing it with themselves, and it comes out in negative, assholish ways. You're probably kidding yourself if you never had a bad day and dumped that shit on someone else. Yes, it would be fantastic if everybody took responsibility for themselves but not everybody has that ability nor were they even taught that very concept. You can't control that, and that lack of control is probably the reason you're really mad. There's only one thing in this situation you can do, that is to take it upon yourself to not fall into the same trap as everybody else and react to negativity with more negativity. Other people will be dicks and negative cunts, but don't let that shit affect you. If you want the world to be less rude, the only think you can do it start with yourself.
