Just an observation.
It seems that for the most part, society has taken a few steps backwards. At least in the listening and common sense arena. The majority of people i speak with on a daily basis,just don't seem to comprehend the subject of listening. The most simplest of questions escape these people. Yet they can carry on what seems to be detailed conversations of the most useless information.
The majority of people i speak with, you can ask them what color vehicle they drive and they cannot answer it.And the answer every time is"I don't understand what you're asking." The age/generation gap is from early teens to maybe 60-75 years of age. All walks of life. There is no singling out anyone. Basically a catch all pool of genes.
People complain everyday about how our businesses rape us, our govt screws us. These same people, or i should say, a good majority of these people don't understand it. And at the same time, a good majority of these people expect everything for nothing.
I'll admit, I don't understand everything. Sometimes I don't want to understand it. But if i do and don't know anything or enough, I take it upon myself to try and educate myself.
So, on my wish list for the remainder of the year, is that 1 in 5 people learn to listen, THINK and comprehend. Don't buy a Ferrari and take it to a Ford dealer expecting them to fix the knock in the motor and bitch at them because they won't touch your car, (yes i seen it last week). Don't call your phone company to pay your Dr bill and bitch because they wont accept your payment, (happened to me on Friday). And don't get pissed at your internet company because you threw your laptop because the screen died and complain your internet doesn't work & want credit on your account, (has happened to me twice).
My new campaign motto is thus:
STOP- Listen- THINK- Comprehend
~A better way of understanding those around you
