OK, OK. Enough is enough. Why don't we all just give up. We just can't afford to go on. Life is becoming too hard. The glass is half empty.
I made the mistake of commenting on a blog where the writer was complaining about the price of gas. I did not give any rationale for the high price nor did I complain about it. What I did was even worse. I offered a few ideas as to how to cope with the price. I listed a few ways to offset the price. A bit of creativity. I also tried to support the person with a bit of optimism. You know, chin up and all of the that stuff. Wow! What a mistake.
I ended up being attacked. I was called a jerk and a money grubber. I even got accused of being George Bush's boyfriend. I was informed that I am greedy just like Exxon and all of the other oil companies. I was told that I should think more about others than myself. Wow.
Lesson for today: Never tell a negative person that you hope their day gets better.
