People Stump Me
I've been walking this Earth for 47 years now, and people & the things they do continue to baffle me.
I like to think I operate from a position of honesty and ethics. I also like to think I have garnered at least some wisdom and insight during this life. But I still get gut-punched and sideswiped by others. There are folks and institutions that throw all common sense out the window and function from a short-sighted position.
I still get cracked in the head and suffer the injury, when I never saw the bus coming. Rules are followed and good choices can be made, and I still suffer the kick in the kiester anyway. You can do your flat-out best, and still get yourself a new one torn. I can be as flexible and giving as possible, and there will always be that one person who can't stand my presence and the fact that I stand there breathing is enough to set them off. I can be gracious, honest, and forthright and still get screwed over by a human-owned company.
You humans, you're a piece of work.
