    Default the 'golden rule'...

    'do unto others...as you would have them do unto you'...and it's many variations...

    any thoughts...what percentage of people in this country do you think follow this rule?...i think less than 5%...

    that's based on personal experience...i've been treated poorly by many people...along many lines...race...skin tone...gender...econ...size...age...education...ho w i do...how i view things/life you name it...

    now...i don't trust anyone outside of immidiate family...and choose to stay to myself...but i also choose not to treat others poorly...just because alot of people have done so (and still do so) to me...

    food for thought...when someone quits a job...they aren't leaving the company...they're leaving their boss...or fellow employees...and feel that they could be valued better...somewhere else...

    Why do some people still have to fight...to get the same opportunities...that are given to others??...

    Look out for self...because noone else will...AND
    The greatest revenge in the world...is success...

    Reclusivness...is a good thing.

    Ha ha ha, cynic central. I had a Dueling Cynics conversation with a customer last night who freaked out because he couldn't believe my worldview- I was matching all of his points with twists. However, since we were like-minded, we both though of the things that make soldiering through life in a world full of a**holes worthwhile. Believe it or not, there is a substantial amount of joy to be extracted out of life that has nothing to do with other people. You can't control the actions of others, but you can make sure you are always growing and striving to be your best.
    RE: work- workplace BS happens to everyone. In the strip bar industry, it's just more honest, blunt and brutal. In other "normal" workplaces, you have fascist hierarchy and backstabbing galore. The same shit is going on everywhere, but more people are blissfully unaware of it- otherwise they couldn't stand eachother. I recommend the works of Machiavelli as a primer on how to survive in America today. Cheers!
