As we draw even closer to the closing of the year, and a rather vicious one at that for a lot of people, to quote Queen Elizabeth II “This has rather been Annus Horribullis!”
What is it with the youngsters of this town, there seems to be something going horribly wrong. Take for instance this story:
I suggested a young man who is studying at SAE to take pictures of a certain local Rock Star, which he did and did well. Then I championed him to direct the video, and there is where it went horribly wrong. I was one of the people 5 months ago that help form the idea. Now the youngling who has a sister who works in make-up too, hasn’t been in touch to discuss the shoot (even though we were supposed to start on the 18th of December), he hasn’t even gotten in touch with any of us except one N. (and she told him that the way he was planning on doing was not feasible, first because of Christmas and then her engagement in January) he has not talked to me though I am supposed to be a kind of Assistant Director/Art Director, not a peep. I sent him messages on FB (facebook) and no reply.
See what I mean the thing is this, why is it when you stick your neck out for someone they feel as if they are entitled to behave in such a manner. I thought this one would be different because he lived in the UNited Kingdom, but I guess he didn’t acquire the finesse there. What to do.
I guess my New years resolution shall be “Why should I help anyone when no one is helping me!” seriously, I keep on giving and getting kicked in the face for my efforts. Yes, a few appreciate me, but that is not enough, I am sick of the users and leeches.
So entitlement “de rigeur”, everyone in this buggery town just feels they have the right to misbehave yes that is exactly what it is MISBEHAVING! Rude, uncouth, coarse, and vulgar the whole town has been affected and infected with this pandemic, until when will we who have some small measure of Ethics, morals, and conscience, have to put up with the rudeness of society, the 2 hour late syndrome (this happened at an intimate gathering on the 22nd people showing up willy nilly, and that seriously pissed me off, these are people that rsvp’d that they would be there at 19:30, and show up at 21:00 or 22:00) and they even arrive unapologetic.
What are we to do with people like that.
And everyone wonders why I turned into a hermit. Well, there you have the answer, instead of dealing with rude people I choose not to get upset and stay on course with myself.
There are a few days left so I will not promise that I will not rant some more, so watch this space…
Merry Christmas by the way. 😀
