10 Groups of People Who Need to Hear, "Hey, jerk! Enough is enough!"
"I say, my good reader. The information contained in this piece might prove helpful to you as a warm, caring citizen. I suggest that you read it carefully."
Beware certain groups
There are among us, groups of individuals who do or say certain annoying things that make us, the quieter folks, the folks who had rather mind their own business than get into a quarrel, get instantly edgy, irritable, and unable to make sense of the rest of our days.
Hear that? That is the sound of a dangerous can of snakes (not worms) that can slither back to me and bite me on the buttocks. But we only live once and why should I protest a few snake bites on my butt for the cause of making a point? Doctors have loads of anti-vernon on hand.
"Karl," the buzz kill appears
I know that some of you are confused at my topic, so I shall give you a simple explanation. There you are, a mild-mannered, God-fearing, flag-loving American and you are about to meet the president of the United States, a dream you have had since you were 10. But before you can leave your home to keep your appointment, the phone rings and guess who it is? Your super-annoying, verbal-abusive, selfish-natured next door neighbor, "Karl," who hasn't called you in months. Now he wants to expound on why he hates Europe and more asinine subjects. You want to hang up, but you know that "Karl," has a vengeful temper and will get even with you if you follow your heart.
Wouldn't you love to shout at "Karl," "Hey, enough is enough! I got the appointment of my life in 30 minutes and all you want to do is grind your jaws on stupid subjects. Stop it! Now good day!" If you did, would you not feel more empowered as a man? Well, "Karl" is not the only member of an annoying group that can push our buttons. Believe me there are more.
And here they are . . .
who bark at you for no reason should be reported to their owner(s). Now I love dogs and other animals as much as the next person, but when I leave or enter my home and all I hear is this humongous dog barking at me for no reason is grounds to say . . ."enough is enough."
Neighborhood big mouth
Drunk in bar
Gluttony equals stupidity
I shouldn't have to
say anything here about this subject. Big mouths are not to be trusted. You cannot confide in them for they, for reasons of self-security, are always breaking vows to friends and running their mouths and adding false information to true stories. If you know a big mouth who has pushed you almost over the edge, just tell them in a firm manner . . . "Shut up!"
The very next time
I run into a person who has drank more than their fill of booze and taking up space in a bar, I shall, for their own good, shake them, wake them and say, "Friend. Have you not learned that abusing alcohol is no way to have fun or solve conflicts?" "Please stop this! Enough si enough."
I was sincerely hoping
that the photo I chose for this topic was fake. I really don't know, but if there are people (like this guy) who is trying to consume this giant burger, I shudder with fear for the obesity rate in our country will rise to a point to where health issues will dominate our lives. So people who love to abuse their bodies by being a glutton, "Enough is enough."
This is super-lazy
The Holy Bible is correct
when it states that "there are seven things the Lord hates," and one of His hated things is laziness or slothfulness. I never understood this when I was young, so when I became a man with a wife an child, it hit home. Men (and women) should be productive and help make society a safe, warm place to live. I have never seen a lazy person do anything but lay around. May I say to you lazy people . . . "Stop this. Enough is enough."
Moderation, Mr. Cop
Mr. Policeman and woman
I want to point out to you that there is not a secret amount of tickets you need to write on your shift to just keep your job. Besides, some of your misjudged tickets will be thrown out by an angry judge, so why not be moderate in your law enforcement? Or you will hear from the spectators in the court room . . . "Please stop this asinine act, Mr. Cop!"
If you know a self-centered person
then this topic will appeal to you. How many times has your self-centered friend embarrassed you with his or her gazing into a nearby mirror while you are talking? This made you angry, right? It should. Just my opinion, but a friendship or work relationship has no room for a self-centered person. This trait is nothing but toxic to productivity. You saying, "Stop it," is appropriate.
Is it carved in granite
that men, and today, aggressive women, just have to get into barroom fights or fights in general? I am serious? Now I am not against a man fighting for his wife or children against a low-life who means to harm them, but to just get into a fight to prove his manhood or a woman her security? I do not get it. But I do wish that someone would tell these people, "Enough! Stop it. You are humans."
Teachers have enough pressure
on them to educate your children without having to deal with students (and I use that term loosely) who do not know how to behave because their parents are way too busy making money to teach them respect for authority. Seriously. Teachers, just say in a mild tone to these poor, misguided kids, "Stop it! I mean it or you will be expelled." (then back-up what you say).
living like the woman in the graphic above? She is always being accused of something she did not do or something she did not say by people who are not worthy of the name, "human." She has endured this stupidity for years and it is taking its toll on her. So what would be the harm in her saying to her tormentor's face . . . "Stop it, jerks! I have had enough." None I see.
