I rarely assume anything about anyone unless I’ve watched what they do, how they do, what they say, and when they say it.
Assumptions will bite you in the ass.
Last night we were cleaning up after an event, and when we were done it was just assumed that since I have a truck we’ll just put the bag of trash on my truck.
I had a friend who decided to get a Jeep. He traded his truck in for it. I mentioned that we live in the country and that a country guy needs a truck.
We don’t do trash pick up here for the most part. We take everything to “The Recycling Center,” which is a fancy way of saying trash pile, which is what we call it. You need a truck if you don’t want to put it in your car.
Tree down in the yard? Cut it up and haul it off with your truck. The operative word here being your.
I’ll come help you cut up the tree if you need me. I’ll put the extra on my truck because I’m a good guy. I’ll help haul it off.
Need to move something big? Gotta have a truck. Again, I’ll help you move it. On your truck.
He had it in mind when he traded in his truck that he’d be able to use mine. He actually said when I mentioned to him that he needed a truck, “Well, I know a guy.” then he winked at me.
We ain’t friends no more.
It’s a two-way street. And one lane was getting worn out.
I cannot stand people that think that because of some imaginary bond I will automatically do something because they need it. We haven’t bled together. There are guys in this world that I will always do anything for. There are guys in this world that I have bonded with through mutual thought and action that I haven’t bled with that will be my friends forever, and they just need to call on me. I will be there.
People assume that because I look angry that I am angry. I’m not.
That’s just my face.
I smile when there’s something to smile about.
I think that people who walk around with a goofy grin on their faces all the time are idiots.
Work? I’m tired of people thinking I’m going to pick up their slack. I have a good work ethic. It was bred into me and reinforced by my parents.
Work is a team effort. When I don’t have a team, I take care of what is assigned to me. Sometimes a little more.
That stops tomorrow.
People say tomorrow never comes. I’m marking this here.
Tomorrow comes Monday 9/27/2021. I’m done.
I have way too much to do and precious little time to do it in.
When I get a team back it’s all in.
Until then I’m out.
I watch the world, and there’s a lot to be angry about, although much of it doesn’t affect me.
I try to be kind. I try to do what’s right.
I watch out for my family.
Thanks for reading this rant. I just had to get this out if my head.
Stop assuming anyone is in it for anyone but themselves. Nine times out if ten it ain’t for you.
That’s it. That’s the post.
