Anger Management. Why are they so Angry? Riders Lament. HOW
See -- I can do office
These people who commute and drive to work angry? What?
Do not get me wrong I go to work most days. I have a nice corner office. I deal with accountants and lawyers and techies and CFO's and CEO's and marketers and the stress is palpable. I mean I get that life sucks. My wife works at a job she hates. I do not know why, either why she hates it or why she does it. It don't make no sense to me.
But today I had to drive my wife through rush hour traffic. WOW! Hey, those people are angry.
Now let us break that down and think about it.
Well most commuter workers are in their own car.
Just think about that.
They are in their own car and going to a job that pays them. Now excuse me. Maybe I am just dense. But that bold lettering statement makes me happy. I have a car and some work to do to feed my family. Excuse me but that is really awesome and cool baby. In my car I got a good seat and can see all around. Sometimes I drive fast and drink tea or coffee. I love to drive with my boy so we can see big trucks, fire engines and police cars and funny little cars and school buses. Excuse me but I got "tunes" in my car. I got a phone deal where I can talk to others. OK OK it is just a 2004 Corolla, but it is so cool.
Why are they so angry?
They got better cars and jobs than me. Shoot they probably have nicer clothes and look like the folks on TV.
Why do you work for anger, you must have gone crazy out there
What the hell are you people doing out there?
Well I admit I sang this song at an All American Indian Pow Wow. With my old friend Jerry.
Doubt that either of us really remember it. Life was crazy back then in the drinking daze.
So back to my lament. Americans are angry. But angry how? Most have jobs a good roof over their heads and cars to drive. I do declare most of us have too much to eat.
Now I swore a solemn oath with my higher power. Not to be angry. But I think I might be angry at anger. Hmmm, I gots ta chew on that thought.
Ya know I am ugly, fat, old and a no good rotten dog. But I am very happy. I got kids that ignore me and a wife that yells at me and no dog and bills to pay. I got a boss man that don't appreciate me and siblings that hate me.
But I am happy not angry.
Yes I got Jesus but his job is to make me act right not feel right. He is in the righteous business not the feel good business.
So please do not reach out to me. Reach out to somebody who needs a letter from back home or a stranger. Be better than me.
So I need some help here.
Somebody make me angry so I can get what all you got!
I try to be angry at politicians. I try to be mad at welfare worthless scum. Shucks I try to get mad at Christian hypocrites. How about them haters and those worthless bureaucrats? How about black widow spiders? Mean dogs.
I just can't do it. I love em all. Somebody help me not be so crazy out here. I feel like a fool.
Yes I can yodel diddly dum. My momma was a Good German American and said It was horrible. But I am a cowboy so we have an accent. ;-)
So Help Me Out Here
Because I am so loco Help others to be loco with me. Just love somebody and grin. Love somebody who is mad. Turn somebodies anger into love.
And please Love yourself. Us crazy loosey booboos out there would like you to join us. Join us in hugging a man with no job. A woman with children and no dad. I need you to help me, let me know that you are not angry.
Just let me know you are not angry.
It is a crazy world. But wouldn't it be a better crazy world with less anger.
Life is what it is. Love is what it is. Can we do a little better and be just a crazy but do it with a happy face and a tender touch?
Can we all just relax? That job assignment will still get done and that sale will still be made and that great article will still be written and that dog will still lick your face and that child will still look up to you.
Anger is manageable. Let us manage it and it not us.
