Driving around town today and I noticed people sitting. Just sitting, watching the world go by. They just sit and stare and laugh and don’t appear to have any worries in the world. They might be drinking a soda. Maybe eating a sandwich. Flipping absent-mindedly through a magazine. What are they doing?
Now I realize I can be a high-octane sort of guy. I mean, I married a woman who can’t sit still for a second, so I always feel like there is something I need to be doing. Gotta keep movin’, got groceries to get, got places I need to be, work that has to be done. It’s a constant whirlwind of activity and I’m usually right in the middle of it. So when I see people, and I’m talking whole groups of people…like 8 to 10 or so, sitting around doing a lot of nothing I have to ask…what is up?
It’s the middle of the day! If you have a nighttime job, shouldn’t you be sleeping? And if you don’t have a nighttime job, that means you aren’t working during the day either…so shouldn’t you be looking for a job? I don’t know about you, but people who hang out on stairs make me nervous. They are above us all. They don’t have things to do or work to get too. They just have time to sit…and drink…and eat…and flip…and look bored to death.
I’m sorry, but even if I HAD time to sit around all day and do nothing, I wouldn’t do it. There are too many things I could find to do. Places to go. People to see. Why sit on the stairs watching traffic go by? What is the fun in that?
Strange…these people on the stairs. They sit and watch me. They make me nervous…uneasy.
Okay. Done with that. Now…about this JACKASS who is driving too slow in front of me…
