“When things haven’t gone well for you, call in a secretary or a staff man and chew him out. You will sleep better and they will appreciate the attention.” U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson

Happy Secretary’s Day!

But wait, its Administrative Professionals Day? What the heck?!? What’s the difference?

The difference is that there’s more to say than the word secretary.

The gorilla shaped idiots who thought of political correctness said that it is better and more legal to say administrative professional than secretary.

I think that political correctness is the biggest joke since the time that people have been inquiring as to why the chicken crossed the road.

The English language was just fine without political correctness!!! Granted there may or may not have been a few terms that would threaten a person’s individuality by offending their gender or whatever, but secretary is not a word that is offensive at all!

How in the world is the word library offensive? Now its an educational resource center. GIMME A BREAK!!! We already know that the resources inside of a library are educational.

Even in my own world, other people believe that it is better to use different terms rather than use the term physically handicapped. I am NOT “differently abled”!!!!!!!

So you see the only thing that political correctness does, is make you have to say more words to describe something that had a perfectly good definition in the first place that could be defined in a word.

But still no matter what they call them, today is the day to celebrate those who help out all day long in the work place.

If you want to a see a list of ridiculous changes by the politically correct movement, it can be found in the link below. As well as a few humorous examples between the sexes.

Just when I thought that mainstream society had released a few things out of its system to make room for the new & improved ways of lackluster social behavior, I yet again walk into reality that nothing has changed at all.

Needless to say that this post is totally laughable and probably isn’t even worth posting in the first place, but here it is anyway.

I was talking with someone this evening and we were discussing travel options for the summertime. We had come to an agreement of where we wanted to go, but there was no agreement on the fine details of how we were going to get there. More so, it was an argument over who would have which finanical responsibility.

What could have been an enjoyable trip to the West ended up severing the ties between two people. We were first going to fly, but then we decided it was going to be expensive for us. We then thought about taking the bus together, but that was decided against because that journey would take forever.

Then we decided we were going to drive it ourselves. Well, they were but still.

Then there was a disagreement on whether or not to get a rental car versus use their own personal vehicle. They wanted the rental, I said save the money and just spend it all on gas and what not.

After a while of arguing both sides, calmly and maturely, there still was no agreement. And as always is the case, since I am not the one who is doing the driving, I got put into a corner where it was either a rental or not going at all. This person was that rude and mean about it.

So fine then, whatever.

We did our research on rentals and couldn’t find one that was the best fit for us and what we were going to do. Eventually, we would find one for about $500 which would have been the total for the amount of time that we would have it.

The person literally had the courage to tell me that MY share of the rental fees would be about $300 on a  $500 rental. So I protested the unfairness of that proposal.

I tell ya, one would have thought that I insulted their mother.

A shouting match developed. I shouted back to defend myself. The only thing that was missing was the physical altercations to make it a replica scene from WWE.

So literally this person stomped away. I figured they needed to calm down as much as I did at that point. Perhaps after our heads were cool, we could figure this out. As childish as their exit was, I just let them go.

A few moments later, they proposed the exact same deal. No compromise, no nothing. And before I could scoff at their arrogance, I heard them say, “It’s my way or the highway!”.

HOLY CRAP!!

I could not believe my own ears. I was just in so much denial that I even heard that, that I had to ask them, “What are you … eight??”.

I guess my own mind wants to believe that things have changed in the 21st Century. Hoping that some things would have been lost in the breeze. I know that the new generation will always come up with something even more retarded and mundane.

Relationships, whether romantic or platonic, never really are going to be 50/50. But with that said, it should never be 100/0.

There should be a compromise. But maybe I am too stupid or wishful that there will be.

Anyways, my own response that I gave back to them was “If its ‘your way or the highway’, here’s $20 and a map that I bought from Wal-Mart. Good luck!”.

I threw a twenty dollar bill at them and the map that I had mentioned and told them to get out the hell out.
