Are you 5’8″ tall, blonde and have huge boobs? Well, if you aren’t, pray your car doesn’t break down in my state. People in my state will not help strangers, unless they look like a model.
Good luck if your car breaks down in a snow storm, you would most likely die. People are rude, crude and will not help strangers (in my state). However, I have seen others try to help women who look like models. The “model type” didn’t even need help!
I live in the northern part of the United States. People in my area are so arrogant, it drives me crazy. I went to the store today and a woman had the audacity to say to me, “next time you have a time limit.” Well, excuse me b*tch, do you see that I am limping around with a hurt ankle and foot? I was raised with southern hospitality. My family is from the south. I say “hi” to passers-by. They never say “hi” back. I am about ready to pack everything and move one state south. The people one state south of mine are much nicer. I have literally traveled each state over and the people are so different.
Does everyone in my state think they are better than everyone else? Most people here are from the south, is what I cannot understand. Are people not raising their children with general politeness? I will help any stranger on the street – always have. My parents raised me with the logic that there are times strangers need help.
For example I have (not tooting my horn, trying to make a point):
- Drove a battered woman to a shelter with her children
- Filled up a strangers gas tank, she had no money
- Given money to strangers
- Gave money to the homeless on the streets in the city (including Washington D.C.). Why are there so many homeless people in the United States Capital? The homeless live in a park one block away from the Capital! What is up with that? Do you not see the homeless American politicians as you drive by them on the way to the Library of Congress? The homeless rate in D.C. is staggering! U.S. Politicians – you drive by them in your limousines and just look the other way. Shame on American politicians!
- Loaned money to people at work
- Gave food to my friends
- Payed my friend’s cell phone bills
- Fed Children in my neighborhood that were hungry
- Fixed a friend’s car
- Helped strangers when their car broke down
People sometimes need help. American culture has taught us to stay away from “strangers.” Hello America, every single person you do not know is a stranger! What if your car breaks down in an ice storm? Who will help you? A stranger!
It is our duty to help people in need, when they need our help. A stranger may need help.
America – every single stranger you meet is not a killer, rapist, or psychopath. That crap they taught you in school was just to scare you as a child.
Let’s get some southern hospitality here in the northern states.
Narcissism is a term with a wide range of meanings, depending on whether it is used to describe a central concept of psychoanalytic theory, a mental illness, a social or cultural problem, or simply a personality trait. Except in the sense of primary narcissism or healthy self-love, “narcissism” usually is used to describe some kind of problem in a person or group’s relationships with self and others. In everyday speech, “narcissism” often means egoism, vanity, conceit, or simple selfishness. Applied to a social group, it is sometimes used to denote elitism or an indifference to the plight of others. In psychology, the term is used to describe both normal self-love and unhealthy self-absorption due to a disturbance in the sense of self.
