Why is it “wrong” to be nice?
Our world has lost its “niceness”.
Why is it always the “wrong” guys that say all the right things?
When I hold open a door for a strange lady, isn’t sad, she’s surprised?
Or worse, that some don’t have the courtesy to say “thank you”?
Where has chivalry, manners or common courtesy gone?
So would blame our “faster pace of life”. I’d call BS on that.
150 years ago, if the crop or hunt failed, you starved; today life is a bit easier.
So, if it’s not a faster pace of life, what could it be?
Is it because it takes more effort to be nice?
Again, I know being mean sucks more energy out of me than being nice, even though I’m not always nice.
I think sometimes it’s easier to be mean, for example, when I’m at Sam’s Club getting my dog food,
I’m tired of being questioned about my cable TV choices. I just want to get my damn dog food and go!
Is it because we just don’t care anymore? I think so…
And that is sad.
