People are stupid

It’s just that simple. I’ve come to the conclusion that people are stupid and they outnumber the rest of us by a factor of about 4 to 1.

I am a member of the local Freecycle email group. Someone raised the question/issue about no-shows, people not communicating, people expecting their item to be delivered (as opposed to them coming to freakin’ *get it*). I responded “I have to admit, I have become very disenchanted with the process due to no-shows, people expecting me to deliver their free item or those who change their mind yet don’t communicate. I have given more stuff to Goodwill as a result. I’ll keep trying, though, because overall it is a Good Thing to do, but man! it *is* hard to give stuff away!”

I then received the following email from “Frank”:

its called cpt

ask around someone will no it

I had to look it up. Apparently “cpt” is “Colored People’s Time.”

I’m assuming that Frank is white. And stupid. And can’t spell.

Cold, but…true?

This was forwarded to me in an email. What do you think?

Have you seen the pictures from Iowa , etc. of the people looting the liquor stores, carrying away televisions from retail stores, sitting on the roof begging for someone to take care of them, collected in the baseball stadium complaining about the food and shelter being provided?

Neither have I. But it was just a thought.
