Today, I sat here in my air-conditioned bomb shelter most people would call a third bedroom and I wondered ---
Who WOULD Jesus bomb?
I'd go for the Super Christians who believe that EVERYTHING is wrong and naughty naughty including breathing.
"Don't breathe!! IT'S A SIN AGAINST GOD TO RELEASE YOUR IMPURE AIR INTO HIS WORLD!!!"
I went outside for a bit to finish up the mowing I started yesterday.
"Hi Tink!" the next door neighbor said from her back porch. "Hot enough for ya?"
"Too hot!" I said, wiping the sweat from my butt.
Somewhere in the discussion, I asked her the question.
"I think he'd bombed EVERYONE cause we all suck! We fight, we pollute, we over-populate the planet! We all need to die!!"
She made sense.
I wandered back into my house.
I thought about turning on the news just to see if the world was still as fucked up as it was last night.
By the way, it is!
I sat there on my sagging couch and wondered more, thoughts from the mind, waiting for death...
- WHY GIVE 110 PERCENT TO SOMEONE.SOMETHING THAT ISN'T EVEN WILLING TO GIVE 3 PERCENT?
Back when I started my misadventure in working for the man, I gave over 110 percent, thinking, if I worked hard, went beyond the duties, I would be rewarded.
I was rewarded, a nervous breakdown, headaches, stomaches, and wanting to kill off the entire planet.
But the raises were 'small' or non-existing, the words, "We can't give you a raise this year cause we haz no money for it..." were used a few times.
The money went to give the GM a multi-million dollar bonus!
Yeah, he deserved the money more than I.
But I learned quickly, why give the 110 percent or more for a return on investment of a negative number?
- JUST LIE!
Another of the Rules to Live By I learned from my work life.
It's easier to tell someone a lie and they wander off to be hit by a bus rather than to tell them the truth and have them stand there and scream at you for hours.day.weeks.months.years.
Trust me, nobody, no matter how much they tell you they want to hear it, wants the truth.
They can't handle the truth!

Good night and have a better tomorrow!
