“Why can’t we all get along.” Everyone has heard this quote. Why does no one abide by it? What causes us as human beings to want to to create enemies, engage in rude behavior, and participate in violent acts? Do people realize that it looks awful upon their character? Many questions arise when I begin thinking about violence.
This being said, we’ve all been in fights, whether it be verbal or physical. I do however believe that there is a time and place for disagreements. I do not condone fights in private or in public. I just think that public fights look ridiculous.
Last night at work, a lady had walked in, threw her drink on another woman sitting at the bar, and the two began to fight. Hair was pulled, harsh punches were thrown, and names were called. As the two fought, they did not realize that they were slowly creeping me into a corner in which they furthered their fight on top of me while I was literally between a rock and a hard place. These women were completely unaware of their surrounding and did not mind taking anyone out in their process.
Luckily, there was a cop on duty and the fight was handled accordingly. The fight appeared to be revolving around another man and one of the girls’ child.
Regardless of the issue, is it ever appropriate to start a huge brawl in the middle of a restaurant? People were literally recording the fight, making fun of the situation, and laughing at these people to their faces. It had to be an embarrassing act on both of their parts.
So I want to take you back to the beginning of the blog. Why can’t we all just get along? Why does today’s world have to be so aggressive and malicious. The argument could have been handled in a completely different manner.
I beg of y’all, please mind your manners and talk things out with those you do not see eye to eye with. No situation is ever worth the embarrassment and loss of pride. We as people need to come together and teach the younger generation that we can love one another and act proper to accomplish a problem.
Pride is a vicious thing, but fighting is even more so. Cut out the violence and the harm, and begin seeing situations in a different light and loving one another.
In life, I have noticed that people like to complain about things that are seemingly little. This depreciates the big things that some seem to take for granted.
A man last night complained that his crab legs were not properly tossed in the wing sauce he wanted. He yelled, hollered, and then proceeded to call his server rude names. What is the purpose of this?
Now don’t get me wrong, I do not like when my food comes out wrong, but I would never make someone cry because of it.
Here recently, I have been having a breathing problem and a strong pain in my sternum. Breathing in and out and even coughing cause me to be in tears in a matter of milliseconds. I have gone to a doctor and am still waiting on results.
As I wait, my anxiety increases, and my sleep decreases. All I think about is the pain in my chest every time I take in a breathe or move my upper body. I would never even wish this pain on my worst enemy.
Even if it may be something simple, and I pray that it is not something serious–I want people to start realizing that we are taking certain things for granted. Breathing is something that each and everyone of us do constantly. Imagine if you could not do that anymore. Imagine if it was a struggle to do a simple task.
Life is rough sometimes, and we are supposed to be living to fullest, and need to stop worrying about things that they’ll forget about tomorrow. Too many small things can upset you in a day, and it does not have to be this way.
So I beg of you, please appreciate all the good surrounding you, regardless of size.
It’s here! Opening Day! Time to celebrate today with a blog!
Baseball season opening up means that it is time for summer, bbqs, and good old fashion baseball games in the park late at night. The idea that some is right around the corner and it is time to enjoy being outside again is enough to make anyone happy!
Being part of the biggest baseball town- Cardinal Nation, St. Louis’s baseball season is a little bit different. Baseball in St. Louis means a time to catch up with old friends, take your dad to that game he said he’s wanted to see for the past few years, and of course, money in the pocket of anyone downtown.
For those who do not know, St. Louis is one of the most boring places to be in the winter. It is cold, gray, and full of people in bad moods. Baseball brings hope to most industry workers downtown that people do still care about the city.
Restaurants downtown go from slow Friday nights slinging beers, to crazy three hour waits at the door on Monday nights. Servers are greeted with smiles and laughter as Cardinal fans drown out all of the negativity in the air and raise the spirits of those surround them.
This theory may seem crazy- but ask anyone who has worked in St. Louis during the “off-season.” The crowds are completely different and we sit around hoping and dreaming of the day baseball starts back up.
Finally, BASEBALL IS HERE! Starting next Monday, the Cardinals will play at our beloved Busch Stadium against the Reds, and the city will be painted red with Cardinal pride.
Keep calm y’all, summer is almost here!
The world seems to revolve around certain concepts that are often times misused. These concepts include love, lust, and more importantly trust. In other words, I see people using these things in the most ridiculous manners.
I want to focus on trust in this blog. The purpose being that to me, it is crucial for all other instances.
Have you ever noticed that we trust only at times when we feel as though it works in our favor? When students walk into a classroom, they do not take their laptop with them if they need to use the restroom. However, if a person goes out to eat, they take their belongings with them to the bathroom if no one else is present at the table.
What is the difference? Between students and other patrons at the restaurant, is there really a difference in strangers? Where does this mutual trust come into place?
At my job, I see people taking their stuff with them if they are alone at a table. Ironically though, if they sit at the bar alone will leave their keys or purses to get up. My intent is not to point fingers, I too am guilty of a false trust, I just want to know why.
Trust is often used in relationships. This trust can be mutual between companies and the public, trust between friends, or even trust amongst co workers. This concept is used in times of need.
When individuals need something, they place trust in others to accomplish the task. In relationships, trust is built in secrets and sharing of information. Where is this in my other examples of trust?
To me, this trust concept is a sneaky and manipulative thing.
