something a little off-topic

Over the weekend, I went out to eat with my family. as happens, one of my family members had a bit of a reaction to the food he was eating. not to go into details, but it was visible he was not doing well and needed to step away from the table. this isn't the first time this has happened in public, and he was okay, but it was upsetting when witnessing people's reactions to the said event. nobody offered to help, nobody wanted to see if he was okay. in fact, a couple sitting across the aisle from us proceeded to make jokes about it (I left a wad of chewed gum on their table as payback, fyi).

this kind of makes me worry about society as a whole, even if it was just a microcosm there in that restaurant. are we THAT self-absorbed? I don't doubt it. this year has made me very, very aware of how that. not saying I'm above it- but it's troubling how many people just aren't willing to look outside themselves, at really, anything.

  1. I think that most of us ARE that self-absorbed. I am so sorry your relative had a reaction like that, and that is so annoying that the loser couple laughed about it.

  2. SO that was you? I'll never get that chewing gum out of my sleeve. I have to throw away the shirt now.

    Admit it though, it was a little funny.

  3. what, the gum or the reaction?
    meh meh meh
