You should stop reading right now. This is not something that is going to leave you all warm and fuzzy inside. As a matter of fact, it’s probably going to piss you off. Frankly, I don’t care. I’m at the point in life that I don’t give a rat’s ass who I upset, when I upset them, or how I upset them. I’ll speak my mind and, maybe, deal with the consequences another day. Or, maybe not.
Are you still with me? Wow. That didn’t hurt, did it? That’s too bad. Just be aware that I warned you. Continue reading
I’m not sure where I heard this, or maybe I read it somewhere, but if you have a problem that you need to work through, a good way to begin is to talk it out.

Of those that do actually read what I’ve written, my guess is that 20% will not understand what is here, 70% will not care, and of those that do care 98% will not do anything about it. That doesn’t leave very many of you, does it? So, why am bothering to write this?
