    You can't please everyone they say, but it's damn sure sad when you can't

    This is true. I try to please everyone all the time. Sometimes I fail but I usually make up for it in the end. One of the reasons I try to make convenience store employees laugh as often as possible. There's almost always someone mad at them for their own (the customers) stupidity.

    This day in age, it seems humility is a sin

    To be humble is to be less

    To take abuse and try and resolve a situation is weakness

    Conversation is wicked

    That was in line with the previous lines, in todays world, conversation, real conversation, not the"hey how ya doin" crap, is not tolerated

    Not entirely true, most people just feel more comfortable having those conversations with trusted friends.

    The world is full of critics and intolerant people with nothing else to do but judge others. Most people don't tolerate criticism well, thus the hesitance to speak openly with strangers. There are things I'll speak of while were eye to eye in the same room but others I am not willing to toss into cyberspace.

    As far as Hey how ya doin crap, just a way to get comfortable enough around someone before moving on to deeper truths.

    Yes, you are.

    Don't go getting depressed now. I've got to get off the board now so send a PM with whatever it is you want to know.

    I use to be one of those people that never spoke to a stranger without being spoke to first. Now after being somewhat active in this CK5 board I have learned to "open up" and talk to people I meet on the street/or normally would not have talked too. I credit my new world friendliness to CK5. I now meet and make alot more friends than I would have say 2 years ago. And now my long time friends feel comfortable enough to tell me that people use to think I was an arsehole when they first met me. You use to have to get to know me but now I make a lot more friends from the first meeting. I've found lots of cool parts and learned some very interesting stuff from one time strangers. I remember a year ago I was standing outside the bank and this thug SUV rolled up. He had some ho's and was blasting his system. I was waiting on my ride, when I said to myself " I wonder if he'll let me use his cell phone to call my ride". So I asked and he did, but not without saying something about the size of my cohonies and his women laughing about whats this white boy thinking. We're not alone in the world so why act like it. I know its kinda off topic but I felt like typing in one of RJ's post.
