Wow, been a while since my last post. Did not realise I was AWOL for that long. In some ways it would be good to still be AWOL! Looking around at the worlds issues in 2012 one has to ask the basics, like WTF? It seems everyone has become intolerant of everyone else! This concerns me greatly of course, so here is a feeble attempt to record a new low in my blogging career!!
You may be asking what has prompted this haphazard rant. Good question. If you did not ask this, then tough luck, you will find out anyway if you keep reading. As it happens, a boringly disinterested flick through the news.com.au website threw up some articles that really got my attention, so of course I just had to comment….
Manners. Well golly gee wiz I can’t imagine why this would be an issue anywhere in the world these days? Most wouldn’t know what manners were if they got bitten on the arse by them! Seems people with no manners are now complaining about everyone else with no manners. Interesting development. How the fuck do you get the idea to complain about something you don’t have yourself? Its like saying “hey you, why didn’t you say sorry to me when I walked into you?” Or “listen up you bastard, keep your fucking voice down when you’re talking on the phone so I can raise mine while talking on the phone, have some consideration for me will you!”. Mmmmmm….
i Gen. I know I know, this generational shit gets covered to death everywhere all the time. I am sorry. Nah just kidding, actually no I’m not! The thing that got me onto this subject was another article I read which was attached to the other article I read… Yes that was just as hard to type as it was for you to read I can assure you! Since when did a Generation get to change the letter before their category eh? I mean for HeyZuse sake, nobody BEFORE this under 20′s lot could do it could they? Apparently they prefer iGen instead of Gen Z. Seriously. In a survey this lot of children freely admit they have no manners, no consideration for others (hence the “i” in iGen) and generally couldn’t give a fuck unless it benefits them. Wow how original. Sounds more like a recycled Baby Boomer to me but with the addition of the obligatory “i” in front of it like everything else in society these days…… Maybe they should be called “yiGen Boomers Babies” then. Combine them with the Generation of ignorants currently labelled yGen and you get a generation of selfish, lazy, ignorant, narcissistic and generally obnoxious kids who are in it for themselves and nothing more. Mmmmm not very Politically Correct I know but the similarities to a Boomer with technology abilities is just freaky!!! Of course they are more than happy to take your money for nothing too whilst having no concept of just how easy they have it now…
Political Correctness. More commonly referred to as “PC” now…. Here is a subject close to my heart! It never ceases to amaze me that everyone must be so PC to the point of everyone missing the point of everything anyone says to make sure they do not offend others…. It’s just plain fucking hard work and stupid if you ask me! God help us all in future when the yiGen Babies are running the show and we are all old. Can you imagine the conversations?
Person 1 : “Hi, how are person(s) this day?’
Person 2 : “Hi, this person(s) are fine, how are person(s) this day?
Person 1: It is good that person(s) are fine this day”……
All this just to say G’day to each other without offending anyone!!! Faaarrrkkkkkk……. What is really wrong with the old ways I ask?
Person 1: “G’day you old bastard, how the fuck are ya?”
Person 2: “Yeah G’day arsewipe, I’m fuckin’ great, and you?”
Person 1: “Any better mate and I’d be fuckin’ dangerous!”
Ok maybe now that it is written down I can start to see a small issue…….
Ice Hockey. This is not an issue really, more just a selfish little indulgence to end things on a fun note! You see I totally luuuuurrrrrv the NHL. In particular the Vancouver Canucks. And they are kicking arse so far in the regular season too, although admittedly only after a very suspect start to the season. This sport is fast, brutal and just plain brilliant for so many reasons. The one’s that stand out most right now though are the utter lack of manners, PC and iGen!!!!! Yes folks there is no “after you”, “no after you!” on the ice. There is no “sir” or “ma’am” on the ice. There are no spoilt children with fucking iPods stuck to their heads on the ice! Mess with these guys and you will become a sad and sorry red coloured advertisement spread over the inside of the fence (boards) after being checked (rammed, pushed, hammered) into oblivion!
Maybe I am on my own being fed up with all this PC, lack of manners from anyone and other stupid anti social shit that we have to comply with these days? I know I sound like a dinosaur when saying this, but it used to be so much easier when you didn’t have to worry about offending all and sundry with a simple “hello”. The basic and decent elements of being a good person are almost gone. Sad really don’t you think?
