I know it doesn’t show - and I know that everyone thinks that good ol’ Filthie’s mild mannered, flawlessly polite, and always sunny and upbeat in disposition. But…I have something of a dark side. I am actually as miserable, bitter and twisted as guys like Phil and Cederq.
And I think: if rage falls along a bell curve and guys like us are the average… the outer regions at the extreme edge of the rage curve will be interesting as hell. One side, sunny, happy fellas like Pete, Quartermain and WL Emery…in the middle, mildly grumpy men like the aforementioned stubfarts. And way, way out there, past guys like us…your going to have the fellas like Ted The Unibomber, Jack The Ripper, and You-Know-Who.
How long before they start doing something about it…?
Lot of pissed off people out there, some going way out of their way to be 'Bad Boys'. Read this morning that a truck mechanic in Houston Texas pissed off the wrong customer. $500 repair was judged as too costly and a confrontation between the customer and mechanic resulted in a chase and execution of the mechanic, put down on his knees and shot point blank in the head. I smell Mexican drug cartel member - those guys do not have a sense of humor.ReplyDelete
Lets all be careful out there.
Another good reason to keep a pistol in your pocket. Some of my cohorts kept pistols in their toolbox.Delete
I am in the middle. Pissed off enough to jump into the fray when it starts, but not quite pissed enough to start it.ReplyDelete
Not yet, anyway. But turn me into a man with nothing to lose...

Looks like you're in good company.
I've found that the older I get, the lower my BS tolerance.
