Do you remember back in Jr. High and High School there were those
quiet types who we thought were snobbish, then at some point in time
we had some conversation, maybe helped along by mind altering
substances (terrible, bad, deathly, don’t do it offspring) and you found
out they weren’t snobbish at all, but were terribly shy and self-conscious,
insecure about how to talk to people? Well, I am not talking about
I am talking about those who use that as an excuse, but who actually
do think they are better than others, who do judge incessantly and
negatively towards those around them. Who do feel the need to
live apart from the ‘rabble’. Those people make me crazy. I know they
are insecure and unsure about themselves. I know they are afraid
they will be found out as ‘less than’ others, not as smart, not as funny,
not as wonderful. I know they can be understood and seen as vulnerable.
But sometimes I just want to schmack them upside the head and tell
them the truth. The truth is the further they remove themselves out of
pride from others the less the are, not the more. The more they judge
others as inferior to them the more likely they are to experience it
themselves. I want to ask how they could not know that the harder
they try to be ‘up’ using the snob technique the farther ‘down’ they are
morally, socially and ethically.
Being ‘better’ than others by being a snob is a useless endeavor. Why
not instead come down from the tightrope and say ‘Hey friends, why
don’t we all be better together?’
It’s Geographic Thursday!
Here are some of the cities that have visit The Napkin Dad Daily in the
West Hollywood, California
Those are just 8 of the 220 cities that have checked out a napkin or two
If you are from somewhere interesting (even if the name isn’t) drop me a line and
tell me about your spot on the planet and what you do there. I will include it
in my next Geographic Day, ok?
