Is it weird that my dog just GETS me?
He’ll take one look at me and just know if I need a cuddle or a kiss or someone to talk to.
And he doesn’t even want anything in return.
Like all he wants, ever, is to be fed and walked; that’s it.
People want sex, drama, money, attention, parts of you you can’t really get back.
No, I’ll just hang out with my dog.
He’s fucking badass, anyways.
Every day you sit behind your desk and you learn a little more how to accept the world the way it is. Well, here’s the rub. Heroes don’t do that. Heroes don’t accept the world the way it is. They fight it.
Especially from a Ma & Pop shop.
When you have money.
I was walking around today and stopped at this fruit stand. It was a cute shop with tons of organic foods inside. It was pretty rainy and cold, so I naturally felt sorry for the store owner as the door was left open. You can tell he was there all day, under all his layers, trying to stay warm while he was ringing people through; tired from being there all day, all week, all month and probably all of last year.
This smug, young guy grabs an orange. He was walking with this “I’m the shit” attitude in baggy attire. In that second, I just assume he was gonna pay for it because it’s a fucking orange. Who steals oranges from a fruit stand? The window was right there with the shop keep standing by. I looked down at the fruit I was gonna pick up and then see the douchelord get into a nice car. I made a scene - I yelled at him, called him a douche and went up to the car. He didn’t give a shit. His buddy just drove away.
What the hell?
I know it’s a small thing but it bugs me so much. This isn’t Superstore or Walmart; not a big conglomerate store who makes money off of bulk, minimum wage and/or exploitation. This is obviously a small store full of some pretty good stuff owned by a small family. Ran by an old guy with grey in his hair and hands in mittens with holes.
And the guy who took the orange, thought it was a small thing, was someone who obviously had money but no intentions of using it in any way.
Why steal when you don’t have to?
I just don’t get it.
I paid for the orange.
