The "Honey" Paradox

"You doin' ok, sweetie?" "Tell me what's the matter, honey." Yeah, it's all bullshit. People who employ this rapid fire terms of endearment crap are most of the time pretending like they care. I've found that the use of these words is directly proportional to the amount that they, in fact, don't give a shit. They just do it to pretend that they are some sort of "good person." Everybody wants to be seen as a good person, but some people think there's a shortcut. I hate these people.

I've said it many times. Fake "good people" are what's wrong with the world. Well, that and I guess global hunger, unemployment, war, stuff like that. But what I mostly see is the fake "good people." One of the worst things you can do to someone is pretend you care about their well-being because you think that's what your supposed to do. Half-assing something like that is irresponsible.

So just think about this today. Think about somebody you know who does this. Everybody knows one. Think about how much you could actually depend on them if you needed them. Once you realize the world is full of shitbags, you'll feel much better. Believe me.

I overheard a conversation in the store the other day. A father sang a short song to his daughter who rode in the child seat of the shopping cart he pushed. "Do you remember that? I used to sing that to you when you were a baby to get you to go to sleep." She looked at him and said, "Were you even around when I was a baby?" "Well, I was for awhile, but I had to go off and make money so I could keep this family together," he replied.

Whoa, shit just got real, didn't it, four-year-old? Maybe you should stick to questions about puppy dogs and stuff before your dad goes apeshit on you.
