Without going into too much detail about circumstances and events, I’ve just been shocked to see how people, that I looked up to in a sense, behave in a way that I never would. Now, don’t get me wrong. I often behave in ways I wish I wouldn’t – and they usually involve alcohol, but I am talking about a different set of behaviours; such as listening when someone is speaking. You remember the rules, the ones that were just normal before all the political correct hoopla, when it was just being polite.
I don’t care how successful you are, who you work for, how old you are or even if you absolutely despise someone. Be polite. It just amazes me when I see people older than myself behave worse than the teenagers on the streets, then complain about the latter. Take a look in the mirror mate.
What added to my feelings of distaste this weekend was when I wandered onto one of my favourite blogs, Scamp, a CD from BBH, London. I thoroughly enjoy reading his posts and many of his “guest writers” for his ‘Tuesday Tips’ series; however, the comments are getting extremely out of hand.
All of these ‘anonymous’ commenters, who, according to a poll, mostly claim to be creatives and many refer to themselves at being ‘big’ in the industry. Since when did all of that a.) give you the right to be a cunt and b.) not give you the guts to at least put your name by your ignorance/opinion.Maybe they had to sell their soles to get to where they are today.
All & all what it has really made me think about is this: is this the type of person I am trying so hard to become?
I will continue to read Scamp’s posts daily, as I find them intriguing and inspiring, but as far as the comments go, I’ll leave those for Anon xⁿ.
