I’m not one of those politically correct, everyone has to like me people.
Never will be.
In fact, I am still surprised by what pressure others will bring to bear on me occasionally.
To make me behave.
I like self deprecation, joking around, and telling it like it is.
If you don’t like that, the door is over there; please walk through it.
I’m not interested in someone talking down to me in order to make me behave the way they want.
The way they believe I should.
But by God, does it happen.
So long as you respect my right to be, I’ll respect yours.
It’s not a deal when you have to apologize for being yourself.
There is no bargain to be found in acting like a condescending ass to ANYONE, at any time, anywhere.
Just so they’ll behave, too.
It’s not worth it.
Because when the bill comes due.
You alone will have to pay the price.
