She / He is so Nice that ...
"Butter wouldn't melt ...
in Her / His mouth!"

"Vengeance is Mine ...
Saith The Lord!"

Oh yeah ... the Pic ...

"Losing a Friend" ...







GOOD PEOPLE
vs.
ARROGANT S.O.B.'a

Tom Hyland - (C) - 7/28/15


Didja ever notice that ...
No matter what the circumstances ...
Person, place, thing, situation, environment ...

Good People are just that ... Good ...
Caring, courteous, polite, friendly ...

And ... skin color does not matter ...
Black, white, brown, yellow, olive, red ...

The tone of their demeanor ...
Has nothing to do with their pigmentation.

They are just ... NICE !


Then, you have the "other" group ...
THE NASTY, ARROGANT S.O.B.'s ...

They are pushy, greedy, self-serving ...
Spit-in-your-face ... ASS-HOLES!

Sometimes, well ... if you drive for a living ...
Like I do ... there is always at least one ...
ARROGANT ASS-HOLE "ROAD HOG"

More often than not, she/he is driving ...
A Big-Ass SUV, or Pick-Up ...

Cutting you off ,,, Or jumping in front of you ...
With No Signal Whatsoever!

They drive like they Own the Road ...
Practically Daring You ... to Hit Them!

Others are noticeable Everywhere ...
In line at the Check-Out in Stores ...

Running their mouths on their Cell-Phones ...
Being Rude to everyone near them ...
Especially the Cashiers!

Fumbling in their purses for money or Plastic ...
With one hand ... and tightly grasping ...

That Squawk-Box with the other ...
Oblivious to the fact that they are holding up the Line ...

Have you ever felt like ...
Smacking them alongside the head ...

And ... Yelling ...
"TELL THAT OTHER S.O.B. YOU'LL CALL HIM/HER BACK!"

Another favorite PEEVE of mine is ...
When you are at any Casino ...

It is crowded at the Slots ...
You rush over to an empty Chair ...

And just as your Arse hits the cushion ...
The greedy S.O.B. Glares at you and says:
"I'm Playing This!"

TWO DAMNED MACHINES AT ONCE!

Hell, I lose my money fast enough ...
Feeding just One Machine!

This happened again just this past Sunday evening ...
At Horeshoe Casino in Downtown Baltimore ...

As we turned and walked away ...
I said to my Lady friend, Pat ...
"Christ ... if she was any Fatter ...
she could Hog Three Machines at Once!"

Like I said above ...

ARROGANT S.O.B.'s !

Oh ... to Conclude this little Diatribe ...

GOOD PEOPLE ...
Are not only Caring ...

But Also ... They Share!
THEY PLAY NICE !

So ... I Say to All my GOOD Readers Out There ...
"Peace Be With You ... and God Bless!"

To The "Other Group" ...
"SCREW YOU!"

ERGO ...

If you are Driving Along ...
Or ... Waiting in Line ...
Or ... Walking through a Casino ...

And ... All of a Sudden ... ZAP !
A Lightning Bolt Comes from the Sky ...

You Will know That ... Yours Truly ...
Has Just Caused Another ...
ARROGANT S.O.B. ...
"To Bite The Dust' ...

and with ... JUST CAUSE !!!!

Not to defend arrogance, but you have to chalk some of it up as ignorance or distraction. Some people are just plain ignorant that they are annoying others by their behavior. The telephone is a good example of a distraction. That person in the grocery line may be having a problem with her child that she can't be with to select all select all properly discipline and is more frustrated than arrogant.

You failed to mention one area, probably because your job on the road primarily involves drivers and the public. That area is superiors or bosses. I've had both good and bad. The way that most corporations are now structured, bastards are often chosen to lead because they are required to do the dirty work of cutting people from jobs when the budget is reduced. From long experience, I've found that these gatekeepers are generally that one step beyond their competence and are fearful that someone will find them out. That's why they act arrogant to hold off any sense that they have a weakness towards their employees.

The same is true of professionals. Those that are snobbish or arrogant and active high and mighty are generally very narrowminded and afraid someone will find out how much they cheated to get where they're at. They don't have the strength to share anything with even their colleagues.

It's a character flaw that Charles Dickens portrayed so well in A Christmas Carol.
