Mind you, this is coming from time spent with certain roommates. The ones that drink them selves into a stupor and then ramble off at the mouth with no fore-thought. Opening the mouth before engaging the brain. OR…Open mouth and insert foot. Most of the time it is followed by a quick turn around with a jolt of conscience and a complete ramble in the other direction.
Is it shear ignorance that tells some people it is o.k. to put down their fellow man just because they are another color? Maybe it is the way they dress, or their last names, no..wait..how about because they are heavy. Comments like “she sure is smart for a fat girl, why would you go on t.v. with such an ugly dress.” Of course then they turn around and tell you how God fearing they are. I laugh at them and they believe it is because I am agnostic, or worse yet atheist.
My religious preference has nothing to do with it. For the record I am agnostic. For those of you that are not sure, it simply means I have no problem questioning the idea of one true being. While at times I am willing to look up and either ask for help or argue with this one true being I am not sure exists.
So to me the preceding behavior is due to ignorance. Yet if you are so drunk that you can’t really be held accountable. You may be considered to be just plain oblivious. For the record, my idea of oblivious is a little different. When I am at work and I am hauling a pallet with goods on it. Mind you some of these pallets weigh in over a ton. Depending upon how many items are on them. Anyway, here I am towing or pulling this pallet along at a good walking speed and shoppers will cut right in front of me. When they realize they nearly got hit by an abject three times their size they give me a dirty look. Sorry people but these jacks do no stop on a dime. It actually takes about three to four feet if one is pulling hard enough. I say these people are living in oblivion, it must be a nice place because most of the people who shop our store seem to live there.
By the way, the reason I am pulling my pallet as fast as I am, is so I can get into the back room and out of the way of these same ignorantly oblivious shoppers.
