For years and years I’ve seen them. The nice guys. But its not only the “nice” guys I’m talking about. I’m also talking about the hard working type. The insufferable people that never quit. The ones that are on the job first and off the job last. The ones that seem to be working for a higher power than the highest demanded of them. The people I call “the nice guys.”
There is one thing that I see for sure. These are the people that get trampled. They get trampled by all of the power-hungry, money-hungry, greedy, selfish people in the world. How come it is the humble, sweet, selfless and good people seem to get trampled in the wake of the bad. Why do the good people, the ones that should be rewarded and exalted above all of the other people seem to be drowning in the wake of the ones that feel that they are better.
This story I see all around me. I see my brother working tirelessly to help around the house, humbly easing the stress of his mother and offering to help in any way, while the other siblings stand or lie around lazily. What are the lazy ones thinking? Do they think that they are actually better than the hard-working, slefless, humble ones? Do they think that they are in their own kingdom where any other person deserves to be serving them? Or is it just that they have put in their 4 hours of hard work and feel they deserve the break. When in fact the ones working while they lay around have just finished their 12 hour shift to face yet more work again.
These are the kind of people we mock on reality TV shows. I remember watching Survivor appalled at some people just laying around, while the others worked circles around them. We sat and watched the TV mocking and yelling about how ridiculous that person is. How funny that we can see when others do it, when in fact the people yelling about the lazy person, turn out to be exactly that same kind of person. How blind some people are.
Sorry for my little rant, but this subject has been my lesson of the week as God has seen it I guess. It just really pisses me off :|
