Angry Rant (so skip if you’re not in the mood)

Do you know what pisses me off?

That it seems everyone can be absolved by saying something along the lines of, “but that’s not what I meant!” Or claiming that they were misinterpreted or misunderstood.

It makes me so angry, it’s almost hard to breathe. And it’s a rampant thing. In a day and age where we can self-edit with the push of a button, it’s especially frustrating. No matter that there are records, and tapes and hard copies stating the obvious….. the bizarre power of “that’s not what I meant” still rears its ugly head all the time.

Maybe we’re not inside each other’s minds to know EXACTLY what the other person means…. but considering that 50% of the population hovers somewhere around average intelligence, we can all arrive at the same conclusion after having heard a statement that sounds selfish, petty, or downright rude –insert your favorite -ism here for effect.

I am just tired. And cranky. And fed up with loads of people. And wishing that more people spoke the truth everywhere, starting with the media…. instead of making up bullshit.
