Common Sense Tangent


Have you ever met someone and thought, “Wow, who raised you?” I know I think that often. This piggy backs on my entitlement tangent. Why are we raising kids who have no common sense? Why are kids able to use ipads and iphones before they can tie their shoes? Why do we have to tell kids they can’t do the same things as cartoons?

Common sense says, you probably shouldn’t show up to work drunk or on drugs. Common sense should also tell you if you treat people poorly that’s how they will treat you in return. You can’t demand respect if you can’t give respect. Why do people think if they yell and scream at someone they get better results than if they asked politely and were kind?

Why are people so afraid to make their own decisions? If you know you are making the right choice and you can justify it, it’s never wrong. Do what feels right, not what you think society is ok with. If it looks as if someone needs help, do they get help? Or are they passed up because it’s creepy to talk to strangers? Why is it only ok to be neighborly and band together as a group of human beings if there is a natural disaster? But not on a city bus? On a city bus everyone has ear phones in and avoids any eye contact or communication.

Think decisions through, think about your actions,treat others how you would like to be treated, respect your elders and make your own decisions. Be a stronger human being. We need more truly good human beings in this world.

That’s just my opinion.
