Frustration...
« on: July 09, 2008, 03:39:46 AM »
Increasingly in my life I am finding I am getting frustrated with the world at large, and personal relationships are becoming a nightmare of epidemic proportions. Why has the world come to see that lack of respect for your fellow man and constantly going off into the world to "do unto others then split" seems to be many people's modus operendi. Maybe I am just having a bad day, maybe I am jaded from years of working in industry that is closer to the gutter than the average retail worker, maybe I am imagining things that really are not that way. Please don't misunderstand me, I am not saying that all people have become this type of person, many have not. It just seems that I find these people with more regularity than I ever have before. Have I become something of a changed man to have come to these conclusions, where once the optimistic young ideals have started to fade? I am lucky to have so many people in my life who truly do care, and who would go to any end of the world to come to my assistance, yet it is frustrating for me to deal with these self important individuals who I encounter every day. Is this the new world? Have our lives become so important and busy that we do not show the common courtesy to our fellow man? Why do people keep driving when an emergency vehicle approaches? Is it so important for these people to "get ahead" and put one over on someone else they would risk injury to someone who they don't know, most likely because they don't know them?

Some questions for all of us to think about.

Thunder6 unfortunetly as we grow older we tend to lose the carefree spirit we carried in our younger days. That spirit allowed to ignore the bad and focus on the good. In todays world a lot of people are focused on themselves and only themselves, we are seeing the ME generation. When we were growing up if you displayed rudeness your parents put you in your place, you were raised to respect others or else. In today's generation unfortunetly we have those parents that are terrified by their children, and thus you have the ME ME ME factor rearing it's ugly head, and don't get me wrong, I am not saying all parents think this way but it doesn't take many to create the problem. A simple thing such as respect for others is slowly going out the window. That ability to block out the bad when we were younger, fades with age and responsibility. If you are one that is now noticing the bad then you are the type of person that I for one feel proud to call my friend. That shows that you reconize the need to respect others and do you best to do so. We must focus on the positive, not the negative, to turn things around once again. For those who lack the respect for others, well they will eventually fall to the bottom of the pile, cause sooner or later someone will come along who will not take it and beat them their. Simple values of respect and tollerance is something I like to think is not totally lost but will rise to reclaim the world around us once again. Hang in there Keven we are not all jerks just some....

I think that your response it dead on, however could be used to explain every generation following the current one for hundreds of years.  Your father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather and so on used the exact words to describe the younger generation.  Remember, every generation is perceived as worse than the one before them.  And curiously enough, it is usually the fault of the older generation as they have groomed the youth of today.

Well fortunetly I was not scared to give my kids a kick in the pants when needed, they were not allowed to disrespect anyone, they were also taught values and to stand on their own two feet and rely on no one.... If I did nothing else right, I did that.

LOL Yes he does, but he has respect for others.. on and off the track, he is a good kid. As a parent I couldn't have asked for more. Your kid is a great kid too, very polite, but also funny.... It's all in the upbringing.....

Just skipping over these messages,   yes todays generation is going to pieces.  But who can you blame it on???????????

OUR GOVERNMENTS.. They have removed spanking from the schools, they are teaching your children, not to listen to your parents, they do not control you.    Look at our courts system????  You can race down a highway at 60Mph. over the speed limit and force a truck off the road, killing its driver a great family man who was a young father ,go to court, be charged, get a life ban on a drivers licence and 200 days house arrest...   How in the heck is that going to make people stop and think.   Our judicial system is nothing more than a laughing bucket.

Thanks everyone for your comments...

Maybe I was trying to blow off some steam... writing does help. Those of you who know me personally know my personality is not usually this dark.

Thanks for listening.

I think we need to do what the states do and have camera's on these emergency vehicles and they get review and if you don't get out of the way to get a big fine.


Why do people keep driving when an emergency vehicle approaches? Is it so important for these people to "get ahead" and put one over on someone else they would risk injury to someone who they don't know, most likely because they don't know them?

I drive to Mississauga daily and take notice of this lack of respect for emergency vehicles also . Imagine how someone would feel if they cut off an ambulance taking someone special to them to the hospital and they died while not receiving medical assistance on time . The cop out on the highway doing his job and taking that final step into a drivers path , that was not paying attention . People do need to slow down and respect others . Stiffer fines may help reduce the numbers , but how about long term licence suspensions ?
