There are many things that people rant and rave about that I think are just fine. For instance:
Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day was heavily ranted about this past week. I like Valentine’s Day. Now, you may say “but Rick; you like it because you have a loving wife who enjoys hot sex, cooking and video games,” and indeed you would be correct, but even before Mrs. RickJay, I always liked Valentine’s Day.
Corollary; I also like giving flowers and diamond jewelry. These things are pitted often. But I think they’re great.
Christmas. Christmas is also heavily pitted. I love Christmas. Family, presents, turkey dinners. It’s great. I like Christmas decorations.
Religious people who come to your door. These people - usually Jehovah’s Witnesses - are the subject of much ire in the Pit, although I haven’t seen a rant about it in a month or so. I never really had a problem with them. I don’t believe in their religion, but I just tell them I’m not interested, thanks, and they go away. It doesn’t upset me at all.
Co-workers. Everyone else seems to think they are a great genius and everyone they work with is an idiot. It probably defies statistical probability that not a singe one of the folks in here who rants about their co-workers, by some amazing coincidence, are themselves part of the problem. But, in any case, I find it easy to get along with almost anyone if you’re just reasonable and patient.
Your parents. I get along great with my parents. Of course, I can’t speak for yours, so this is sort of a dead end.
Talking heads on TV, like Bill O’Reilly or Rush Limbaugh or Michael Moore or Anne Coulter. Getting upset about these people strikes me as being just a hair away from being upset at Ralph Fiennes because he was so mean in “Red Dragon.” It’s just entertainment. It’s not real.
Microsoft. “Blah blah blah Bill Gates blah blah crashes blah blah blah.” Man, I couldn’t care less.
So, what things get Pitted or ranted about that you just don’t understand why people get upset about it?
