Personal Message

My personal message right now to 1 Million people would be: STOP TREATING OTHER PEOPLE LIKE SHIT.  

Seriously, people are so unwilling to be decent human beings to each other, it makes me insane.  Whether it's people passing by an old lady that's fallen and busted her face open, or it's people being rude to retail clerks just because they work retail, or people not cleaning up after themselves because "oh, it's the janitor's job," it's really quite sickening that things like income level and social status and shit like that make a difference.  We're all human beings and let's start treating each other like that.  

I think a lot of problems would be solved if people just cared about each other more.  If people who made fortunes off of exploited labor gave a fuck about human rights, they'd give up a billion or two (of their multiple billions) and pay these people who are making them rich a livable wage. Basically, global warming, global poverty and hunger, war, and lots of other bullshit stupid crap would all be solved if we all decided to treat each other like we'd like to be treated.

What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say?

Found you via the Twitter #Trust30 hash tag... and you know what ? Your talking about manners. People seem to have forgotten them, or never been taught them in the first place.
Manners people - get some fucking manners!

Everyone likes to hear themselves talk more than they like listening to others. If things were the other way around, I think life would be grand. Interrupting or ignoring someone else is crap. And, I'm certainly part of the problem. I still catch myself doing it all the time too.

Very true - manners are completely overlooked a lot of times. Thanks for stopping by Amy and Social!
