Stupid Things People Do

Today I want to devote some time to the stupid things people do, the last few days have delivered some real bright sparks.  I’d like to include the estate agent I rent from but I fear that she has not yet reached her peak.

Unfortunately I do not have images of them all but here goes, in no particular order.

During the Cheetahs/Lions match the camera panned in on the crowd, there was a young woman with a small baby on her shoulder, taking a long deep drag from her cigarette, yuch.  How is it possible that a woman in today’s world does not realise how bad smoking is for babies, no wonder they have to make laws to stop people harming their own children, as if crime does not supply the law makers with enough work. I fully understand the need to smoke, I don’t smoke, but I understand.  I do not understand how you can smoke around children.

The next one is people who get sick from taking the wrong medication and then they blame the chemist. I for one will never ever take any medication without reading the enclosed pamflet, the doctor will never tell you everything, he simply does not have the time. And before you take strong medication you should inform yourself as to what it’s for, how it works and what the side effects are so you can also know when you should stop taking it immediately.  Then you should also see that the pills you got and the problem the doctor diagnosed are not compatable.  Just read the pamphlet, it is not packaging material.  And if there is no pamphlet Google it!  It is your duty to inform yourself and you cannot blame someone else if you get sick from wrong medications you took yourself.  It’s another matter if the doctor gives you the wrong injection but this was not the case.

And then, oh boy, this one just made me shake my head.  Someone sent R 150 000.00 worth of sms for a competition to win a BMW, bright fucking spark, goodness. And now they blame the organizers of the competition and the self phone company, no one, ever forced you to send so many sms’s, don’t you have anything better to do?? Enough said.

This guy tried to cross the river in a sedan car….

Needless to say we have had allot of rain.

Have a good day all.
