Information Overload!

Because this post is about information overload, it will be short and no photographs. When is being a “member” of this, that and that other site ENOUGH! I’m at the confused state! When is being a member of so many Social Networking Sites, no longer beneficial, but rather, OVERLOAD! Or is it just me: Am I just feeling overwhelmed by all the sites? Maybe I’ll feel better about it all…later.

Say ‘THANK YOU’ for God’s Sake!

I hope that none of my readers fall into this category of humanity; however, if you have noticed yourself slipping into the “Abyss of Self-Absorbed Rudeness,” then pay attention!

I’m going to put it very bluntly here in this sentence: You MUST have the common, human decency of saying “THANK YOU” to anyone who shows you kindness, does something out of the ordinary, goes out of their way, goes above and beyond expectations, or does even the slightest, littlest thing for you out of the kindness of their heart, THAT THEY DID NOT EVEN NEED TO DO BECAUSE IT TOOK AWAY THEIR OWN PRECIOUS TIME TO DO!!! (three bloody exclamation points)


IF YOU DON’T SAY “Thank You” to these people, who I’ve described above, then you seriously need to be slapped, and then sent back to Civics Class for some reeducation!

There’s no damn excuse for NOT showing someone gratitude for their kindness!

The, “I was too busy” lame excuse goes well beyond my tolerance of idiotic, stupid, and unacceptable excuses: EVERYONE IS BUSY!!! HAVING NO EXCUSE GOES 10-NOTCHES BELOW RUDENESS!!!

If you think you are so much more important than everyone else, then you need to be enlightened and realize you are like everyone else, and you also need to show gratitude and thankfulness to others for things, even the smallest things they do for you…things that they need not even spend the time doing for you, but they do it because they have a kindness in them that you would NEVER understand (speaking to those who fall into the “Abyss of Self-Absorbed Rudeness” category of humanity).

So WAKE UP! No One is so important that they cannot show Gratitude.
