I confess, I cannot relate to you and your illness

On Alexander Street last week I was walking towards a couple walking down the street, the guy made a joke about some unfortunate guy sleeping on the sidewalk with a piece of cardboard covering his head. I didn't hear the joke but the both laughed and laughed. Then the guy pulls out his phone and snaps a photo of the guy turns and looks at me with an expression on his face that says; "Holy shit I'm hilarious", the woman giggling... I just looked at them like the pieces of shit they are. I thought to myself, if karma exists both will end up living on the street for the rest of their useless lives.

Yeah… i dated someone whod occasionally tell me of a past partner whod ask for change from 100$ bills….. i would always feel disgusted from the glee theyd get retelling it. Some peoples privilege is just sickening.

Thanks for your thought-policing ... but no thanks.

"I didn't hear the joke"

Isn't the problem with the world right now that people are emotional without context. blame is a hell of a drug. You don't include the actual offensive thing that you were offended by. Just that you were offended by other people.

Next time, tell them loudly how gross they are. Social repercussions like that are one of the only things that actually changes people's behaviour.

There is no such thing as karma. They're keep going on being shitty until someone call them out on their shittiness and probably not even then.

Do you read what it said on the cardboard?

Photographing the humiliation is a character trait I dispise. I’ve witnessed coworkers do it to each other; snap a humiliating photo of another coworker as “future leverage”, photographing people at the pool and laughing at the images of how out of shape etc they are. Photographing homeless people is along the same pathetic continuum. There’s more sociopaths lacking empathy than kind people these days. What happened to us??

Same Old Bullies

Bullying is an "illness" now is it? I keep reading the same confession about karma. It's never how it works. If that were the case there would be no suffering. Explain how some have everything, treat people like dirt, never lose and never face the consequences of their actions. Good people suffer more, entitled people are wastes of space absorbing energy and resources and all people do is wait for "karma" to come fight their battles. Karma doesn't come how you want it to nor happen on your time, you could have done more than look. How did that help the homeless guy? Just as useless.

There are some very messed up people in this world who take pleasure in someone else's pain.
Those kind of people are very sick and demented.
Scum bags really !
Karma never comes back around I know this for a fact and horrible people never get their due justice. Why is it bad people always seem to get ahead in this world and are almost never held accountable for what they have done ?
I sometimes think we are all living in hell !
Where nothing ever makes any sense and you just can't figure out why.
Why ?
