I seem to get on people's nerves in a way that makes them attack me personally. I understand that if I find an idea to be stupid I will call it
stupid. I might even get sarcastic while listing off logical reasons why an idea or a belief is stupid. I will not, however, call a person stupid
unless that person lowers him or herself to that level by attacking me instead of the topic at hand.
Now, some might say that calling an idea idiotic is the same as calling the person an idiot. This just isn't so. We all have stupid ideas from time
to time. And sometimes, it takes a bit of sarcasm and aggressiveness to force the person to rethink that particular idea.
To show that ideas can be stupid without people being stupid, I'm going to list a few things that prove this out. Feel free to add more if you think
1. Ten Hot Dogs for 8 hot dog buns. Stupid! But, they're still making money.
2. This Face Butt towel is great for remembering where you wiped your butt on the towel so you won't use that side to wipe your face. sssSTOOOOPID!
Here's an idea: ALWAYS WIPE YOUR FACE FIRST!
3. The Pizza fork. For the person that has everything - except knives. JEEZ!
4. If you have a habit of forgetting where you set your beer down, just keep it in this container and click on the remote. The container will beep.
STUPID!!!! I'm thinking that if you have a habit of forgetting where you set your beer down, you might want a remote that will make the next AA
So, did anyone get offended by me calling these inventions stupid? Did anyone feel personally attacked? I really hope not. So, please don't feel that
I am cutting you down in any way if I think your ideas are stupid on religion, metaphysics, or any other thing we talk about here. One bad idea does
not make one an idiot.
Not only am I a member of the Stupid Ideas Club, I am also the president. I've had some whoppers in my time. Still do. So, go ahead and tear my ideas
apart any way you wanna do it, but don't lower yourself to belittling me. First off, it doesn't work on me. I'm too old and too confident to care
what you think of me. Secondly, every time you cut someone down, it's only a reflection on YOU!
