Hm.  I will hold my thoughts until I hear more UT essays.  It seems like I'm in need of more definitions.

Problem is, the English language has become all stretchy since the late 70s, especially since the 90s.

"Letting a God into your life is like letting "Bob" into your wallet.  It's going to hurt, because they always grab more things that they said they would."
-Some silly dead bastard in Tucson.

" Jonas Salk could SHIT ON MY DESK, and I'd still sing his praises.  No more polio kids in iron lungs or wheelchairs.  Jonas Salk did fucking MAD SCIENCE, and the world is a million times better for it."
- The same dumbass.

:mittens:  This has made me think, because, truly, I'm an idealist, and that is why I get hurt a lot.  I totally expect more out of the primates I live with and love, and so I get monkey-fucked, in a bad way.  :x


The opposite of win/lose is lose/win.  <--- stupid corporate terms, but they apply.

Setting out to please everyone is a recipe for getting shat upon.

Can we get that on a t-shirt, please?  I  need to wear it, daily.  It's why I get hung up on days like today when I think the world is LETTING ME DOWN, DAMMIT.  It's my own BIP that has wrapped itself around me.

AGAIN.

That ended up being a lot more scat-pron related than I intended, didn't it?

Being altruistic is fine, provided you can afford it (emotionally or financially, as the case may be), you don't expect gratitude or reciprocation (when you get it, great), and you don't feel that it's your duty.

Can you remind me of this in a few years when I'm bitching about what I did for my kids and their apparent lack of appreciation of my efforts?  Because knowing me as I do, this will happen.

Stranger things have happened.




At least, that's what they tell me.

So stop.

I have one of those cliche signs by my desk, but it's one I take very seriously.

"I can't please everyone every day.  Today isn't your day.  Tomorrow isn't looking good, either."

Which, when translated, means:

"I am here to make the plant run safely and smoothly.  All other considerations, including your bloated ego, are secondary and will have to wait until I have time to listen to you bloviate to prove how smart you are."
"Letting a God into your life is like letting "Bob" into your wallet.  It's going to hurt, because they always grab more things that they said they would."
-Some silly dead bastard in Tucson.

Yeah, but how often can you get that many nuns drunk?
