Yesterday While Getting Some Coffee…

I overheard a convenience store employee say that “now that President Obama is in office, he was going to finally get an “opportunity”. So I asked how long he has worked at the store and it turns out he was one of the assistant managers and has been for like 5 years.

In any event, I have to just ask this very simple question. Why would an individual waste 5 years of their life waiting for someone to give them something? (Especially a president of a country) I would have thought that after 2 or maybe 3 days would have been long enough to figure out that nobody is going to give us things in our result orientated economy and society. At what point did we just start sitting around with a fucking hand out waiting for shit to drop in our laps? What ever happened to personal responsibility and accountability?

Yea, the bastard was clueless when I uttered the famous quote “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thank you Thomas Edison!

I think Nintendo, X-box and Pong has fried our youths brains and made them lazy slack asses. If they are waiting for me to give them a handout, I have a backyard that needs mowing. Feel free to swing by. No, you only get paid when the job is done well. I won’t pay you just because you showed the fuck up.

God I am tired of supporting underachievers of our society. I really, really am.
