It’s time to reveal a generally embarrassing (definitely not admirable) tidbit here. You know, most people, having a shit day at work, come home and vent their frustration/fury/murderous rage on their spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend/pet (or in some cases, they beat one or all of the above to a bloody pulp). It reclaims sanity to be able to unleash all that morose and nasty shit that brews inside your soul after a supremely bad day.
I have no spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend/pet to lash. So I marry this blog for moments like this…
So yeah, this post has a personal motive, contains a private agenda made public, a sour distaste I must express openly in response to a really fucked up evening at work. It was the evening man, that’s when the shit hit the fan. I wish I could be more open and revealing, but contrary to the “About Me” section of my home page, I am not ready to divulge that deeply because essentially I am really a big pussy overly attached to a semblance of semi-security and intermingled with fashionable doses of consumerist rage. But, the point here is that I had a moderately shitty evening. Because of Stupid.
Stupid leaves me out to dry. Stupid kills me.
There are those of us who are not Stupid or Lazy. We think clearly, and we do shit right. Fuck yeah, that is presumptuous of me, but it’s true. There are those of us, the notoriously rare, that get it. We carry the weight of the sluggards on our shoulders and wallets. I’m reminded of the Secret Society essay that appears sporadically in the Pick-up Community. It is a rather elaborate description of the curious fact that very, very few men “get it” when it comes to women. And when you parse out “straight” men, their share shrinks even more. The men who truly get it are able to wield their rare society membership in amazing measures of pussy attainment that leaves non-society men puzzled and scratching their head.
There is also a secret society of smart, conscientious people. I’m not ashamed to admit I belong. I only know a handful of people who I can say belong as well. Those of us who are members have our shit together and we are meticulous and painstaking and we are preternaturally disposed to see the holistic environment and discern all the stage props in relation to each other and we can think Stuff through and we are not afraid to do it. We don’t ask for help until we’ve given it our all. We don’t mind getting off our ass.
For another trait of Stupid is Lazy.
I truly find this fact is borne out everyday I deal with countless new crops of morons, of all flavors, colors and stripes. Morons, stupid people, idiots, dumbshits…they are all lazy. Why is this!?
The stupid/lazy are the most likely to seek remedies for hard work and exertion.
They are most likely to display what little brilliance they genetically posses when it comes to weaseling out of work. Actually, I find it very puzzling that the stupid are also the most lazy. I would think the intelligentsia have every right to be lazy as the morons, but it’s not proportionately the case. Odd. It’s as if laziness plays itself out as a sort of “physical boredom” and boredom is nothing but a dim-minded inability to amuse and entertain oneself. The minute you hear your child repeatedly say they are bored, give it up. You got yourself a moron and they won’t amount to much. Oh wait. This is 21st Century America. Duh! Sorry, just because he’s dumb doesn’t mean he won’t amount to much…in fact, it might portend great success. You see, the stupid/lazy dynamic is alive and thriving in the work force and the secret society has actually usurped this culture; the work place is owned, masterminded and perpetuated by the Lazy/Stupid Society. The smart/conscientious dynamic is alienated and denigrated against the backdrop of our cultural and corporate existence. Those who do too much will be ridiculed and hounded into submission. Worse, they will be forced to lift the weight of those who can only carry much less.
The dumb and lazy speak a special language and I don’t know it.
They amble about their dimwitted path for the day, bolster and humor each other’s lagging intellect, for how can you challenge that which has no sense of challenge? Or no appreciation for challenge.
So here I conclude.
I began by elaborating on the Secret Society of Smart People.
And concluded, there is no such thing.
Only a Secret Society of Stupid/Lazy People. The Smart/Conscientious are the true morons. We are the ones who don’t get it but we can never get it because that insidious awareness will not let us not know or not care.
