People have become even bigger idiots than they used to be. I enjoy having a smartphone but I don’t use it in my car. What the fuck is with people and their fixation of having to dick with the phone all hours of the day. People sit at green traffic lights longer than ever before now. They play games on their phone while driving on the turnpike (I’ve see this first hand). I work in IT and I have to be available a lot. I don’t need to check my email in my car, or look at social media. More people are now hanging out in the left lane of the expressway. Some don’t even do the speed limit. What the fuck? Drive your damn car and quit fucking with other shit. Pay attention so other people don’t die at your hands or because you were intrenched in your phone.
I love to drive. I drive 70 miles a day and have for 16 years now. I don’t mind it. I have heard people in their twenties say “I’m scared of driving”. What has happened to people? Is everyone a big pussy now? It seems like over the last 10 years I have watched people turn into space cadets. They can’t make choices on their own, they can’t drive, they can barely walk without looking at the phone.
People can’t even merge anymore. Every single day I am behind someone getting on the expressway or the turnpike that thinks they can safely merge into traffic while they are going 40MPH. The speed limit is 65 and 70. You can’t merge into a highway going 40 without creating all kinds of problems. Not only do they create problems for the traffic already on the highway, but they also screw the people behind them. Idiots.
PLEASE, TAKE DRIVING SERIOUSLY. PEOPLE DIE DAILY BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE WASN’T PAYING ATTENTION.
Put the device down. Keep your head on a swivel. Stay aware of your surroundings. Don’t be a rude assbag. Don’t tailgate. Use your turn signals. Only use the left lane to pass. Don’t speed up when someone tries to pass. Use cruise control! There are other people around you walking, or driving that have things to do and don’t want to die because you were not paying attention.
It has been 13, almost 14 years now since I found out that I had another sister. I grew up with a sister that was 2 years younger than I. In 2003 I found out that I had an older sister that was born, raised, and currently living in France. Seriously. My dad called my sister (that I grew up with) and I and asked if we could have a family meeting; he wanted to tell us something. It was something he didn’t want to tell us over the phone. Both Chalan (my sister) and I figured that they were going to tell us either mom or dad had some bad medical condition. Nope. Just an extra sister. 🙂 What a relief.
My dad is awesome and he is my hero. He gave up so many things so that my sister and I could have things when we were little. They didn’t always have enough money for bills, but they made things work. Dad is a master plumber and has been for over 50 years now. He is 70 and still working as a plumber every day.
Long story short, he recently wrote a book about his daughter (Aude) finding him. This book is called “Abandoned in Paris”. He received a letter in the mail in 2003 and it was from the daughter whom with he had never met or spoken with. If you are interested you can purchase the book on Amazon as well as CreateSpace.

I am sitting here in my living room with my daughter while she does homework. TV is off. Stereo is on. What she likes touches me. She pays attention to the lyrics. I can tell she has a good soul. She is so amazing. I love her more than anything in this entire universe. She’s so pretty and I love her so much that it hurts sometimes. I tear up when I think of how wonderful she is. She’s growing up too fast for me. I want more time with her. Time is the one thing we cannot get back. We need to use it wisely and take care of ourselves so that we can maximize our time with people we love. <——— This is very important.
I love you so much Elsa. You are the love of my life sweetheart. I will always love you, no matter what. I will not judge you. I will always forgive you. I will always help you when you need help. After my body dies (of natural causes….nothing is planned folks), I will always be with you. My soul will be by your side always. Stay Beautiful my love.
People that interrupt. I swear to God that nobody seems to give a shit anymore if you’re talking. Too much shit going on at the same time and people just can’t stay focused. I feel like everyone has fucking A.D.D. It happens with everybody I work with. I start talking and am in the middle of a sentence or paragraph and someone just butts in and starts talking about something else. Then once people want to hear what I was going to say I tell them “no, I’m not repeating it”. Fuck ’em. Next time don’t interrupt all the damn time. I will usually attempt to say what I was trying to say twice, then that’s it. I will not repeat it again.
White, black, yellow, tan, and cream colored people have rioted, burned shit, and just straight acted like morons after many things. They have done it after a sports team won or lost. They have done it after trials, in war, and when there is any type opposing tension between two crowds of people. A black man lost his life due to a cop (Ferguson, Missouri). In Akron, OH. white cop lost his life due to a black man. There are many other examples where people shoot other people. It’s not whites against blacks or blacks against whites; it is bad people against good people. I know good and bad folks that are white, black, yellow, tan and cream colored (no, not all different colors on one person jackass).
Violence is never a good answer unless it is the ONLY way to save you or your family. Violence should always be a last resort. I’m sure this seems like “common sense” to most but there are a lot of common folk out there that lack this “sense”.
Cops should try as hard as they can to not use lethal force unless they have to, I know there are some that lack training. I’m sure some cops shouldn’t even be cops but they are. Likewise, when confronted by a cop, the last thing you should do is make any sudden movements or any movement like you are grabbing for something when they tell you to put your hands in the air.
Nobody wins in these current situations folks. Seriously NOBODY. Let’s try to fix this the right way and not with our anger and emotions. I know it’s easier said than done but then again, so are most things.
