These days you don’t have to look far to find arrogant people, full of their own self-importance. One place in particular that appears to be packed with these self-obsessed jerks is Beverly Hills, California. I had the misfortune of encountering one of them the other day, while patiently waiting to get out of a parking garage. Out of nowhere, the woman in front of me had exploded with rage at the person in the booth.
What had got her so worked up as she sat there in her $100,000 Jaguar? The answer is a $2 parking fee. The woman in the booth had explained that while the first hour of parking was free, she had actually been parked there for one hour, five minutes. Therefore she now had to pay $2 in accordance to the rules.
There’s far too many people in this world who are quite frankly, up their own asses. It’s one of the most disgusting traits in a person, and unsurprisingly many of these people are single.
Now, as a motorist myself I can fully understand why this may cause some frustration. Then again, I’m not driving a Jaguar worth $100,000! I like to think if I was, $2 wouldn’t feel like a huge deal. I just couldn’t understand the rudeness of the woman. I actually heard her call the woman in the booth an “ignorant immigrant” who should go back to where she came from.
This kind of thing really gets my blood boiling. What’s wrong with some people? It doesn’t matter whether you’re a waiter in McDonald’s or a highly skilled, world-renowned surgeon – nobody is better or worse than you are. Everybody is equal regardless of their job, the country they were born in or what color they are.
The people who disagree with this are the ones that can be found shouting at waiters and belittling customer service reps. There’s far too many people in this world who are quite frankly, up their own asses. It’s one of the most disgusting traits in a person, and unsurprisingly many of these people are single. They actually sit and wonder why they can’t get past the first or second date. In their minds, they’re everything somebody could want.
If you’re on the dating scene and you want to avoid ending up with this type of self-obsessed nightmare, there are a few things to look out for:
Watch how your dates communicate with others. If you’re out for dinner see how they talk to the waiter for example. Do they belittle them or make jokes when they walk away? Seeing how they react to those in the service industry is a great indicator of how they see themselves.
Keep an eye on how much they complain. If they are over-complaining, it’s likely they’re the same in a relationship. Look at how much they tip while you’re out. Do they leave as little as possible even though the service was impeccable? This is a surefire sign you’re dating a pig!
If your date does any of the above it’s time to call a cab! Self-obsessed people are a nightmare to be around. They are the lowest of low in society and they suck all of the joy out of the world. Who needs to be surrounded by that? You certainly don’t want to be stuck dating it. Remember people, everyone is equal no matter where they work or who they are!
