People don’t think anything through. But, I’m pretty sure you already knew this. Instead of asking how another person may have come to a decision, or why an action was taken, they just immediately spew whatever comes out of their mouth without taking the time to think about it fully.
Now, I’m going to give a ridiculous example, but one that is still prudent.
The whole, “What’s the difference between a bra and panties against a bikini” argument. As in, what does a girl care if she is seen in her bra and panties if she’s okay with wearing a bikini to the beach?
Pretty simple. And, anyone who’d think about it for a second would realize that undergarments, besides being generally more sheer, are also not designed to be seen in public the same way bikinis are.
While a bikini may show off the same amount of skin as a bra and panties, it doesn’t offer the same amount of protection in the form of absorbent material, snug fitting corners. The bikini, also still being small in size, contributes more to the overall “confidence” of the wearer since they are now socially acceptable to be seen in public in.
A 55-year-old woman showed her bra-covered breasts to a state police officer in Washington Township, Lehigh County, after authorities responded to a harassment call in the 8600 block of Brown Street on June 21.
Cynthia Lee Young, 55, and Eric Jon Gross, 46, both of the 8600 block of Brown Street in the township, were charged in the incident, police say.
Police said both suspects shoved Chad E. Cassey, of Slatington, with Gross later flicking a cigarette in the victim’s face.
When state police arrived on scene, Young allegedly became unruly and began yelling. She pulled up her shirt at one of the state police officers. Police said Young was also walking along a road while intoxicated after being instructed not to do so. SOURCE: The Express-Times
This kind of thinking is also what was recently seen after Musikfest released their app, which, at this time is only available in iOS.
Instead of people thinking, “Hmm, I wonder if it costs extra to produce an Android app? Maybe the first go around they really want to see how the public responds to it so that when they do produce another version, with Android, it’ll be better. Also, since there were time constraints for reasons that involve business and life, producing both app platforms and releasing them before the fest wouldn’t have happened. Also, whatever, no one is reading this they have already made up their minds…” they just type, “EFF YOU YOU FREE MUSIC FESTIVAL I HATE YOU AND YOU OBVIOUSLY LOVE STEVE JOBS AND YOU KNOW THAT ALIENS EXISTS AND AREN’T TELLING US.”
It’s not even that people need to be better educated as much as they need to stop thinking they are really smart.
Stop, collaborate and listen for a second before you talk.
End rant post for the day…
