Lately I've been running into folks all over that have this mentality. Like their shit smells like roses and that their gods gift to earth. I admit I have a degree of confidence that borderlines arrogance sometimes, but I like to think I'm aware enough of reality that I don't blind myself with delusions.
People online are a big one, because a certain attitude pervades folks minds. Something along the lines of, "nobody here will ever meet me in person so therefor I have free license to be an asshole" Not so, I've met plenty of people from the internet, and I did it by emulating myself through type, not pretending to be confident and strong. Perhaps some of you don't want to meet people, which in that case I'd say I feel sorry for you.
If you ever have the misfortune of reading comments online, then you'll understand where I'm coming from when people act this way online. But what about offline? When I'm at work, and people are ordering food, a lot of them seem to think that because we're working at that particular moment, we aren't people, but peons designed to take shit and orders. Other times I'm on the road, and someones driving like they're trying to save the world from certain disaster.
I think it's time people started looking at themselves for what's wrong with the world around them, rather than their surroundings. This is light of a string of tragedies that I feel are brought on by a sense of false superiority, enabling idiots to think that they deserve the right to dictate how others should perish.
