Don’t Be “Mr. Important”

Social Distancing or Social Awkwardness

Social distancing shouldn’t be that hard for me. Why? Because there’s not much difference between social distancing and being socially awkward, and...

Things I’ve Missed in Quarantine

I’ve missed restaurants. Don’t get me wrong, I love my wife’s cooking. Heck, I don’t even mind my own cooking. But, there’s something about being able to go someplace and letting other

Staying Social While ‘Social Distancing’

A month ago, I had never heard of the term “social distancing.” Now, it’s a way of life.

Funnyish-Fun for Kids can be Hard Work

Kids just want to have fun. But, before kids can have fun, adults usually have to put in a lot of work.

If we’re going to make this work, Happy New Year has to be more than a wish

How many people wished you a ‘Happy New Year?’ Do you think they are wishing you to be happy just on New Year’s Day, or are they wishing that you be happy for the whole year?

r Let me just state the obvious right here at the start: I’m more important than you! I shouldn’t have to say it. I mean, I’m ME and you’re YOU; of course I’m more important!

We have rules for a reason, and that reason is to keep people like you in check. The rules apply to everyone except me, because I’m too important to follow the rules.

I’m going to park wherever I want. Those yellow lines painted on the ground don’t mean anything to me. (Well, except for when I park on top of those lines and take up two spots to make sure no one scratches or dings my car!) Handicapped parking? There’s never enough REALLY handicapped people to fill all those spots, so I might as well use them. Fire zone? When’s the last time you saw a fire at a store? OF COURSE I can park there!

The carpool lane is for vehicles with two or more people. Or for me. (Because I’m more important than you.) Don’t cross the double white lines? Good advice…unless it’s convenient for me. Speed limits mean nothing to me. Are two lanes merging into one? Well, obviously I’ll keep going forward until the last possible moment before I merge, crowding ahead of you idiots who got over when the sign told you to.

I don’t wait in lines. Ever. I’m FAR too important for that!

I’m glad YOU shut off your phones before the start of the movie. But, I’m not going to shut mine off. How will I know when I get a call if my phone is off? Besides, I might want to check the scores or play a game if the movie gets boring. Can’t do that with my phone off!

20 items or less? Who’s got time to count? I’m going to the shortest line.

No, I’m not going to clear my tray and throw away my garbage at the fast food restaurant, I’ll just leave it sitting on the table. And no, I’m not going to push my shopping cart to the return area, I’ll just leave it by where I parked. They have people they pay to do those kind of things! Why should I bother with it?

Yes, I’m more important than you. I’m not sure how I can put it in a way that will make sense to you. Maybe if you pretended every day was your birthday you might understand. But probably not, because I’m way more important than your birthday.

[NOTE: Don’t be THAT guy!]
