Hating on Winnie the Pooh.

Old pooh

I’ve had this one almost as long as I’ve been alive. I got him for my first birthday. He still hasn’t disintegrated thus far. Not sure how anyone can ban Pooh from anything. He’s such a nice bear we overlook the gorging on the honey. I mean, he even has a ride at Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom. There isn’t any higher honor than that.

On being a contrarian…

Do you know someone who is always on the opposite side of your opinion. I’m not talking about your spouse, it’s supposed to be that way. But someone who always starts out their response with “Well, actually…”

Star Wars vs Star Trek, DC vs Marvel, Republican vs Democrat vs some weird 3rd party, Christian vs Pagan (Don’t even get me started on the Religious sub cultures, that’s and issue that loses more friendships than any)

Some people just like to hear your opinion first so they can play “devil’s advocate” and just get on your nerves. It’s tough to be friends with people like this. How do you deal with it? Well, you can always ask a bunch of follow up questions if they are the type of person that makes statements. The best way is just to keep quiet and not share your opinions. Someone can’t shoot you down if you don’t give them any ammo. Read twitter posts, Facebook status and just grin and move on. But you can’t can you? You must be right all the time, so unleash your best with no mercy and enjoy no friendships. I should delete this blog…

 

Talking politics…

The worst thing about talking to people who are on the opposite side of the aisle regarding politics is that they are always wrong, and they feel the same way about you. It’s almost as bad as talking about religion with someone. The sad thing is, politics deal with your everyday life and religion deals with your eternal life. Both are important, but so divisive.
