I Fuckin' Love You Guys....

Life's too short...

What's up with all the hating in the world? Has it always been this bad, or am I just getting more cranky about it in my old age?
Several of the blogs I visit regularly have apparently been inundated with hate mails, just because the bloggers have had the courage to write about what was on their mind....almost everybody on the roads seem to have serious anger management issues....half of the organisation I work for seems to hate the other half....the Middle East doesn't seem to be fast becoming the haven for peace and democracy that some people thought it was going to be....race riots in Sydney.....Solomon Islanders rioting....Nepal seems on the verge of a melt-down....Donald Rumsfeld still hasn't been driven out of Washington by mobs of angry, torch-wielding villagers....where's the love, people?
Granted, the Mid-East is a big, sticky problem with a lot of history and with different forces and competing interests at work...but how high-strung do you have to be to lose your lunch when someone merges into your lane, no matter how lousy they drive? Why would you take the time to dump shit on someone just because they voiced an opinion you didn't like on their own blog? Why can't people just assume that the person in the next cubicle is probably just trying to do the best they can to the extent of their experience and abilities? Why can't we all just get along???
Please do something about it, folks. Be nice to someone that you really don't care about. Be polite to people who appear to be a bit idiotic. Let somebody trying to get into your lane into the stupid lane already. What does it cost you? I'm convinced that the only way to make the world a better place is to just be a little bit nicer to the people next to you. I know - it sounds sappy and trite and 60's. But please try it anyway.
End of rant.
