The Thin Line “Ignorant VS Oblivious”

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.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
