According to this, people in LA are known for being the rudest and the most stupid out of a list of 25 major cities.
Does the word Duh mean anything to you?
There has been a definite downturn in the quality of people I meet than even just a few years ago. I am surprised and saddened with the ease of information in the modern technical age and how very few people seem all that interested in tapping in to it. Even now, I think I would still rather do without the internet or television than my books and that almost makes me strange nowadays.
It is only going to get worse, I wish I could be more optimistic, but than is very little evidence to the contrary. A simple question such as " Do you like to read?" is almost exclusively answered, " Well, I read magazines." Ugh, if I get that response one more time... I should rephrase that and say, " Do you read anything that is not almost exclusively pictures?" Vogue, Elle, or Glamour, while full of lovely, highly expensive things, do not count as reading material. National Geographic and other associated magazines do count because at least there is educational content, well, that doesn't have to do with what colors are in this season and hair don'ts.
I honestly hate to rant but there are so many things that irritate me to some degree that I have to give vent to them occasionally. Alright than, I feel better now.
On a totally unrelated note, is anyone going to see Laibach on the 26th of Sept, I hope to get my ticket this week. ^_^
