This is a picture of the vuvuzela on one of the highways:  Buggedout




 Buggedout  You can't hear that thing 900 miles away?  I hope nobody lives closer!

What grinds my gears: noisy neighbours.  For a while we had an apartment above a restaurant.  They had the speakers for their sound system mounted in the ceiling and the staff used to crank it up and party after closing.  (They closed at 2 am) Moving to a farm in the country after that was heavenly!

5 things that really make my blood boil:

1) Blind Hate - racism, prejudice, people looking down upon others for no justifiable reason I can see.

2) Disrespect - I was taught to treat others with respect and most of those older folks amongst us. Important to remember we'll all be older someday a little courtesy and patience for others can be a nice thing.

3) Animal abuse - if there's anything that really bothers me deep down, it's this. Especially people who abuse their own pets. Innocent animals don't deserve abuse, they are living feeling creatures...only someone unfeeling can inflict such pain on another creature.

4) Impatience - Patience is a virtue. It's a key element in my own discipline to remain patient and understanding of others and try to put myself in their place.

5) People who dismiss things with no knowledge of them. Like kids who refuse to watch older movies because they're black and white or from years ago. Hello, should we refuse to read all the classics of literature - I don't think so. Should we only record history for the last 10-20 years - I think not.

I think there's a central disconnect in the way people think of virtues. They are not attributes that people possess. Patience is an action, something you have to do. When people say "I don't have the patience for such-and-such," what they are really saying is they are too lazy to try it.

Seeing other people's feet that really shouldn't be wearing sandals or flip flops.   Especially guys who mostly seem to have less attractive feet than gorillas.  Then again I've seen some women with much more awful feet.

Ah yes.  I get that problem with people when I try to introduce them into black and white films.  I'm trying to fix that by showing some of my cousins and friends films of that era.  First was The Thing from Another World and next will be Them.  Got to hit them with films that'll grab their attention so I can slowly introduce them into other genres.

People who are full of crap about almost everything that comes out of their mouths and lie right to your face.


(Stop here if you don't want the long version of what sparked this post - warning: cathartic venting to follow).


Case in point (happened this weekend):

My daughter is involved in riding ponies in horse shows and we went to one this weekend.  This usually involves the following process:

(1) Everyone from the barn, kinda like a "team" in a sense, works on Thursday to load the trailer(s) and get everything ready to go.  This is a TON of work but is bearable if everyone helps out.

(2) On Friday, the horses are loaded, transported to the show, and they all have 'practice' on Friday afternoon.  The trailer(s) are unloaded and our stalls at the barn are set up.  Again, this is a TON of physical work and everyone should help out.

(3) The show events are Saturday and Sunday.

(4) On Sunday afternoon, when everyone is done with their divisions, we pack up the barn and reload the trailer.  Again, this is a TON of work, and it is often (like today) very hot (mid 90's).

Okay, we have one girl on our "team," let's call her OneGirl, that MAY show up for Thursday's work and does NOT show up on Friday until it is time to ride (ie, the trailer is unloaded, the barn set up and all the chores are DONE).  She's 9 or 10.

Okay, the rub from today....my wife and I and our trainer (and my two children) loaded about 90+% of the stuff on the trailer this afternoon before the last two girls were done.  OneGirl was done, but we had not seen her around.

The only stuff we did not load was what was still being used by the last two girls to ride and the horses themselves.

Well, my wife and I were watching one of the other girls ride when OneGirl's Mom approached us quite upset because the trainer wanted the other girls (not OneGirl, but two or three others about her age) to go the barn to UNLOAD the horses when they got back into town.  It's their job, and they are expected to help out like this all the time.

She did not think it was necessary for the girls to do that...they were supposed to go to her house for a sleep-over.

The Lie:  "Well, we are over there loading the trailer right now, so I we are doing our part."

Bold face lie.  *WE* had already loaded the trailer and they were nowhere to be seen when we did it.  When I next went through the barn, not one additional thing was loaded since we left to go to the show ring.

Liar.

Lack of respect for the natural environment. Besides the evils of big companies and corporations polluting our planet, it doesn't hurt each of us to go that little extra mile to put trash where it belongs, to recycle and to compost (or like me contribute to someone else's).

Knee-jerk Christian bashing! Especially from Hollywood and the media.   When people who have never set foot inside a church or read a single page of the Bible dismiss and ridicule all people of faith because of

(A) Stuff that happened a thousand years ago when the Church was actively ignoring what Christ taught
(B) The actions of a few nutjobs who are about as representative of Christianity as I am of the Slug Beings from Planet Talos.

Maybe try to actually learn a little bit about our faith before you dismiss all of us as idiots and hypocrites.

Bold face lie.

Of course, she was pretty darn BOLD to tell that particular lie at that particular time.
