Don't Judge Me

I love people who say 'I don't judge people.' Yes, you do. Stop lying. We ALL do! I don't care who you are....you judge. Every single person on the planet judges people based on what their perception is. I do....and I swear to gawd, I will punch you in the gonads if you still deny that you don't.






















I was walking on Market street the other day and saw an elderly lady all bundled up wearing what looked liked everything she owned. I turned to Amanda and said 'Awww...she's homeless.' We continued to the bank and on the jaunt back, I see the lady sitting at Tully's, sipping a latte, eating a pastry & playing cards with another bundled up person. Maybe they aren't homeless. Maybe they were. Who knows? I didn't stop to ask but I did judge. The same way I judged the dude that stops in front of my apartment to take pictures of the road or light a cigarette. He is blonde, has dreadlocks, a beard and a guitar slung on his back. Is he homeless? A street performer? A tortured artist? I don't know. He's probably an IT specialist making $200k a year. That's the thing....I don't know and I judge....for no apparent reason.

Everyone also judges people they know. Again...stop lying...I'll still punch you in the gonads. Don't tempt me. Ok, ok, I'll be the first to admit it. I judge people I know. 'Oooh, she must be loving the ice cream a little too much lately. Have you seen the size of her ass?' 'Ooooh, does she realize she looks like an old Jewish lady in that outfit?' 'Ooooooh, he is probably dating her because of those fake boobs. There's no way she has a brain.' 'Ooooooooh, I bet they're having marriage trouble. Look at them trying to escape one another.' Granted, none of it is said in a hurtful manner....more of a 'know it all' manner. haha!






















This game is really fun in the mall or the airport. I like to make up stories about strangers. It entertains my mind. I don't know if it's being judgmental or if it's just placing people into the little categories you've set up for them because it makes you feel comfortable. What's bad about judging is when it's hurtful or it becomes based on rage. That's when racism, segregation, anger and hatred take form. However, that's a completely different blog. I don't hate people. Well, some people, but they totally deserve it! I'm also a big enough person to know when I've judged someone incorrectly. I did that to one of my dearest friends. I was wrong, so wrong, admitted it and love her the more for it.





















Anyway, I'm not trying to lecture, I was just thinking about it one day. We all judge. I even judge myself. I haven't showered in 2 days, considered staying in bed all day and have been watching so much reality TV that I think my head might implode.That makes me a typical, lazy, unemployed fat ass living off the tax payers dollar. Yep. That's me. Actually, I'm wrong about myself, too. haha! I've worked harder while unemployed than I ever worked while employed. How sad is that?!

Alright, I'm done doing the blah de blah about judging. Leave me alone whilst I sit here and judge the crap out of you for a moment.

ATTENTION PEOPLE WHO WRITE IN ALL CAPS! All caps mean you are either YELLING!!!! at someone or STRONGLY EMPHASIZING!!!! a statement. ALL CAPS is not how one should type on a day to day basis. Unless you are married to a deaf person, work at a circus, are a carnie, OR are constantly surrounded by 100 out of control 5 year olds, you are NOT ALWAYS YELLING!!!! Whenever I log on to whatever social networking site of the moment and see someone writing their status in ALL CAPS, I want to punch them in the gonads. Seriously, dolls, knock it off.

Here...let me help....look down at your keyboard. Now look at the buttons, ok, not buttons...keys, ok, not keys..the little things you push with your fingers when YOU ARE YELLING! Look on the left....leefffftt. Ooooh! You've got it! See the one with the bright light shining? The only one with a light? It's probably green? Yes..that one..there you go. It says 'caps lock'...but not in ALL CAPS. Push it. That's right. There...you did it. Congratulations. Your annoyance factor went down slightly. SLIGHTLY!

Speaking of Facebook, if I would have gotten poked that much in college, I would have never gotten my Doctorate. Oh...wait.....

HEY! One more thing, I wonder if the Pillsbury Dough Boy gets poked on Facebook? That's rich!






















*Peace.
