Because of my family history, I do my best to avoid certain groups of people.
Some people would say it’s a good rule to avoid felons, but I’ve met some people who’ve been to jail, got their life straightened out, and now live pretty good lives (they still have self-destructive traits like leaving porn on their computer screens, but they try to keep it under control). We all did stupid stuff when we were younger; we all have that one story that ends with “How are we still alive?”
So, instead of lumping groups of people together – and then consequently avoiding them – for what they’ve done, I’m lumping them together for what they do.
If you do anything on this list, I think it might be time to reassess your life. Something is broken and you should fix it.
- If you prepare to watch TV shows more than you prepare for a job
- If your gas station attendant knows about your health
- If you regularly drink out of a 2-liter bottle
- If loud noises are amusing in and of themselves
- If you have more than 150 college credits but no degree
- If you have serious discussions about Wrestlemania
- If you’re between the ages of 25 and 65 and work anyplace with an “apostrophe s” in the title
- If playing the lottery is a legitimate investment
- If anything in your house costs more than your house
- If you get mad at imaginary characters
- If you do things, not because they’re your responsibility, but because you want to avoid getting in trouble
I’m not saying any of these activities in-and-of themselves makes you a bad person. It’s just that I don’t know of too many people with a retirement account that share these traits.
