Ok, wow..it's been about a month since I updated. I haven't had much to update. We got back from
our camping trip two weeks ago, and it was amazing, so much fun, and so many memories created. Our kids
had a blast, it was their first camping experience, so they really enjoyed it and learned a lot.
After our return, I realized just how much I love camping, and how much I missed it. I was pretty bummed
that it had to end. Given the opportunity, I would live in an RV for the rest of my days. Sadly that won't happen,
but we do have plans on making this a yearly thing. You wouldn't believe just how nice the RV community is, it's a breath
of fresh air!
The moment we returned home, it was back to the same old environment, the same hostile and miserable people.
I was actually taken back for a minute, realizing just how rude, hostile and inconsiderate people are where I live.
It makes me sick to be honest. Even my son asked me why everyone here is so rude. The only answer I could come up with is -
They weren't taught any better. But it's more than that. Everyone seems to live in their own space, their own bubble. Other people
don't exist apparently, they go about their daily lives not giving a shit about anyone else.
When I was growing up, I was taught early on to respect other people, be nice, genuine, and considerate, no matter what
someone else's status/situation was. Anyone I encounter throughout the week - 90% of that is met with blind rudeness, or complete lack of any awareness
or compassion. It's everywhere like the damn pandemic. People cutting you off while driving - for no reason. Pedestrians walking infront
of you - without even looking to see if you're coming or not. Opening a door for my wife - someone cuts infront of her and enters first.
These problems are so small, but make a huge impact on someones day. I try and let it go, to not let it bother me.
But I can only take so much as a single human being.
A perfect example - When we returned from our trip, I was following my wife to fill up the gas in the RV, apprently we were going to slow
and some guy behind me decides to cut infront of me and take the gas pump I was heading to, nearly clipping my bumper. I proceeded to find another pump,
and I went straight up to him and he asked if "I was good?". I replied fuck no we'ere not good, you cut me off, my blinker was on and you clearly saw
where I was going. Needless to say, it ended there, but this is where karma came into play.
This guy knew he rushed the pump, when he noticed he pulled in the wrong way, so his gas tank was on the opposite side of the pump.
I couldn't help but chuckle. He went inside to pay, when he came out he then realized he paid for the wrong pump, he actually paid for
the pump our RV was at, he began to curse up a storm and walk back into the store. I'm sad to say that, his karma made me laugh. It shouldn't
be that way, but when you encounter people like this on a daily basis, you become indifferent, and sour.
I'll continue my journey in life to be kind whenever I can, because that's all I can do, being a rude asshole to people
wont get you anywhere, any faster. If you can be genuinely nice and care for your fellow human, life's journey will be a more
