Damn it.
I am so tired of judgemental people.

How do they find the energy? I find it difficult enough to walk around deciding what I want to do, without making to-do lists for every Jack and Sally I meet.

"You should..."
"If I were you..."

If these sentences have not been preceded by "What should I do?"or "Give me some advice, please, oh ye friend of great acument and perception", shove it, stranger. Oh, you say you mean well? Well that makes it dandy, then. I don't know you, you don't know me, so your opinions are entirely relevant to me.


In the subway. Morning. Grey faces, everyone is tired, someone is listening to their mobile really loudly, and French hip hop is...bad.

Random person: "You shouldn't carry around so many things, it's bad for your back."


Thanks? I have seen the light!

This rant includes: people who give unsollicitated advice to pregnant ladies. People who criticize homeless people because they are "lazy" in front of them.

And these are the same people who just sit there and don't move when someone gets physically assaulted because "it's not their business."

I need Alan Rickman to comfort me with his exquisite drawl.

Rant over.

  1. Hmmm...I might have to watch what I write here now! ;-)

    Generally, I find that those who offer their "suggestions" are the ones that need to heed them the most!

  2. I write on the Internet. Criticism comes with the territory, right? I hate early morning Metro advice, though...

  3. For many years I was a paid performer. When a stranger, aquaintance or not-close "friend" ventured into the "You should...." suggestions I usually replied "I'm paid to do as I'm told. If you want me to act in a way to suit you, then your suggestion should come with a check."

    Grat blog! I'm very glad I found you.
