Selfishness

I used to tell everyone that there were only two people I could not stand: a liar and a thief. I have decided to append to that list - I cannot stand selfish people.

Most recently this has arisen in a discussion I had with someone about mailing a few items. A relative had left the items at her place and since they were not very expensive - her answer to the owner was to replace them. That strikes a discordant note within me. I am just not "wired" that way.

In my mind, there is nothing more important than family. So, if my son were visiting and left his hat - I would feel obliged to mail it to him as soon as I could. Apparently there are many who do not feel such obligation. Isn't it ironic that those who feel the least sense of obligation feel the greatest sense of entitlement? I think not.

Laziness and selfishness are two sides of the same coin. Please do more for others than you do for yourself.

'Nuff said.
