Its all your own fault!

It's you! You're the problem.

It's all your fault.

It always was all your fault and it's really silly of you not to see it. It's high time you recognized yourself and I'm gonna help you with it because I'm kind, decent and a bloody genius!

Firstly, just understand that nothing has changed in the world ok? It's just that you can't keep up. The peak hour traffic is doing exactly what it always does, it doesn't change at all.

You are a part of the peak hour because your life is organized in to time blocks that correspond with it so that's your fault for starters.

After all, if you're one of those who are pissing in the milk, you can't complain that it's tainted now can you?

Lets face it. You shouldn't drive in peak hour traffic, you don't have the temperament for it.

You don't pick the traffic lanes well, or early enough either. That's why you have to shove in at the last minute to make your turn offs. To be honest, you're a lousy driver. You should have left 15 minutes earlier to compensate for your lack of ability.

You should also have been getting smarter about your driving generally by now. Then you wouldn't have endangered yourself by almost having an accident when you met another person who is blaming the traffic like you do and drives as poorly as you do.

My only advice is to slow down even more and ....... don't turn the radio on! You will lose even more of the tiny bit of concentration you possess now if you do, and that would be even more dangerous.

Front up! Realize that you are a menace on the roads, it's all your fault so just get over it and take the bus from now on.

It's also come to my notice how many times you need to make the same mistake in other areas of your life before you learn.

The kids are always spilling something if you let em loose, you know that. So who's fault is it that chocolate got on the fancy lace trim of the evening gown when you showed it to them?

Why are you still so insecure that you needed the approval of a 3 and 5 year old anyway?

Get over yourself!

A photo of me on a good day.

I don't always look this good!
I don't always look this good!

Remember when you got the opinions of the kids about that new sexy "little black dress" you spent the month's housekeeping money to buy?

You should know by now the little ones are going to tell you they can see your bum, and that black makes you look as if you were dead. I think "You look fat in that" should have done it for you last time. No point running out of the room crying ...... what did you really expect? Did you think they were going to ask if it is available in their size?

You know full well that you're clumsy too, yet you still insist on stacking the dishes on the sink until they are so high they slide off the bench one by one and explode when they hit the floor.

Then knowing full well that you have a bad back, you bend down awkwardly to sweep up the pieces and do your back in again. You are a slow learner ain't you? Who to blame for that? Clearly it's your fault!

Another thing I would like to point out is your habit of getting up every morning early and rushing to log on to read your latest adsense income only to find that it is still at .01 cent as it has been for the last three years. You have been online long enough to be used to failure, it should not be something you have to reinforce hourly!

You have to write stuff that people read, whinging in an "article" about the incident with the little black dress and the ankle biters just won't put you in the big league earning group online.

I've tried not to be too critical in this hub as I know you are very sensitive to being given advice.

That sensitivity thing. It's all your fault too.

Tell you what.

Why don't you have a nice cuppa tea, lie back and read another nice hub like this one!

Good Morning Ernest!!

What a hoot!! I am sitting here in my pajamas with my first cup of morning coffee laughing my fool head off!! And spilling my java down the front of my lovely yellow robe!! Which makes my little shit-tzu want to lick it all off while I'm trying to make this important comment!!

Lucky for me I have chosen the single life and can happily accomodate all my idiocyncracies under one roof!! I do however have four very opinionated pets, each with alpha personalities!!

As for driving, I am stellar on that one!! For years I only knew one speed: 95mph! After I had accumulated a basket full of tickets - and paid them all off - I had an epiphany!! I don't drive during peak hours, allow myself plenty of time and am Ms. Manners at all times!!

Wonderful Hub full of GREAT laughter and self-reflection!!

Blessings always, Earth Angel!

Lovely comment EA! I had fun with it. I needed a break from writing car repair and workshop machinery hubs!

I am single these days too, but no longer have my "Gizmo" a white/gold shit tzu running my life, I remember him barking right close to my face because I left him in the car for 5 minutes when he expected I'd be 3. He was a very independent little person who copped no crap and bossed everyone around using his cute back leg walks, head cocking or even mild violence to get his way. I miss him every day.

He woke up every morning to take over the planet! I have twin 5 year old granddaughters and a 6 year old grandson to do all that stuff to me now!

So pleased to hear you have the driving covered! Not driving in peak hour has been easy all my life, as I work for me and arrive WHEN I LIKE! The BIG exception is taking kids to kinda and preps. I do it a lot! Ballet lessons are out of peak hour thank goodness!

I am so pleased you got a laugh!

....sippin' my coffee reading this, this a.m.

...i know a few people like that....i avoid them if can....i hate holding back on not saying anything that infers 'i told ya so'....but i do....i try not to sweat the small stuff...since it's not me....it's not my problem...that's what i say...especially when you are watching an accident about to happen...and you just know what the end of the story will be...

loved the rant about the dress and asking the kids for their opinion....and yea, you said it 'you look fat in that'

...what's up with being surprised about rush hour traffic it's the same day in and day out......for some i guess it feels like it gets worse each time they tackle it and they don't learn.....but repeat the same scenario over and over....

ha ha ha......thanks for the chuckle!

hey, where've you been...haven't noticed you on the threads...busy i guess! Later...

Ohhhh there's nothing quite so much fun as externalising blame earnest :)

I think I've met as many as is good for one person in one lifetime. I was married to one for a start. Gosh but could he justify his every mistake and misdemeanour!

Funny thing is ... this won't even slightly penetrate the thick skinned consummate externaliser. But who cares ... I enjoyed it :):)

It had to be someones fault, and we have all been waiting patiently all these years to find out who to blame.

Humph!

Very good one Earnest! It drives me nuts when those idiots swing into traffic or right in front of you to exit.

And that bit about the lady asking does this outfit make her look fat... I rolled laughing. It reminds me of a commecial about Abe Lincoln.... his wife asks him does the outfit make her butt look big.. and old Abe couldn't lie.. he said yes, and she runs out of the room upset!

Great hub!!

Hey Earnest,

This is the type of material that our friends, family and especially our 'politicians' need to absorb anytime they start to suffer from the usual dose of 'tall poppy syndrome'.

As usual mate - 11 stars and 3 thumbs up ! :)


ryankett 5 years ago

Keep it, anybody who find this offensive needs to take heed of this line "That sensitivity thing. It's all your fault too." Unless you specifically target something like this to an individual, rather than the entire English speaking global population, it could never been considered personal to anybody. I say bugger 'em.


earnestshub profile image

earnestshub 5 years ago from Melbourne Australia Author

Thanks Kanga me old china! I am writing a second one, just for fun. I reckon it's pretty harmless fun.


earnestshub profile image

earnestshub 5 years ago from Melbourne Australia Author

Thanks Ryankett.

When I wrote it I thought it was broad enough of the mark to not be taken personally, but one critic felt it was too close to what really happens and so not funny.

I will see how the next one goes.

I am glad you see I did not aim it at anyone, and loved the humor of those who included themselves to get a laugh.

Ok.. so I've spent too much time in your car care section I missed this one. I'd beg your forgiveness, but it's all my fault I missed it. My father always told me I have a keen perception of the obvious. Obviously I missed this one. I'm so sorry - if apologizing would even help. So I'm here. But first I read the second one. That's how I know I'd missed the first one. My bad. I know. It's all my fault.

Heck.. no it's not. It's YOUR fault. You and your auto section. I like them and read them. So it's all your fault.

I feel much better.

Thank you.
