It’s Too Easy

It’s too easy ….When  you know how it is way too easy to get people , lol , mostly men  to do what you want them too as most men only need a smile and please and they will do anything for you , well not everything but you know what I mean  lol. Not that long ago I had a freezer that I needed to get rid of and the rules about hard refuse collection with our council had changed so you now have to book a time for them to come.  So 1 day I look outside and there  was a truck picking up some from over the road , so I go out  ask really nicely and  smile and yep you guessed it they took the freezer too  , lol job done problem solved all done with a smile and a nice chat to the men .

When in the UK still I needed to know something from the local police and happened to see 2 of them coming down the steps  ready go on patrol , so I stopped them asked nicely , smiled and yep once again I got the information  I needed , 1 went right back into the station and found out what I needed to know , lol too easy  .. So many  times even when out shopping I have been able to get help  from men and yes some women too just by being nice and smiling when asking a question . There are so many times that just being nice and just having a nice smile can get you any or all the help you  might need , and the funny thing is it does not matter  what it is a smile goes a long way and best of all a smile is free to all to give and to receive , but these days almost no one  uses them . I have found that a smile will get you not only help but also a giggle and that just makes it feel better  for all concerned, just wishing  more people  would use this free gift they all have and makes the day that much nicer for all concerned .

Also getting what you want or need can be so funny , if for example it comes from a place you go to all the time , our local pub is a prime example , the people who work there are so nice it is a pleasure to go there and service is great …But…lol  some of them have this 1 bad habit , there is a door they use a lot and they just open it go through and let it slam behind them , now that’s all ok if….if you see them go in  but if you don’t that door slams so loud that it scares the crap out of you . Well I thought it was time to get some of them to stoppit ..lol  and yes my being nice and smiling worked , 1 bloke came out of it, looked up saw me and shut it quietly , lol made me and him laugh so much it was funny , and as  I had not seen him go in I was glad he saw me as he come out that just proves the power of a smile and being nice …and stirring the blokes  lol.

Well it is a well known fact that a smile goes a long way and it is so true  , I would much rather smile and be nice than make things  worse by being  a grump , that does not  help with anything  and gets nothing done. So let’s hope more people learn to smile more , learn that the smile costs nothing and gives a lot of pleasure  to all you give it  to. Also it helps you to get things done that people think you can’t  get done , I love it when that happens love it when I prove that if you take the right attitude into doing anything  you can achieve  a lot  and that is good for everyone .  The world would be a better place and people would be not only happier  but people would be more relaxed   and we sure  could use that there is too much violence  in the world now  we need more people to smile . Happiness and smiling a lot go hand in hand  and makes for a better community as well and we sure could use that .

So go out, make people smile  , make them giggle  , make that the way you go out every time  you go out and that alone will make things better for you and all around you , it’s what  I try to do each time and I love doing it . I wonder how quickly the world would change if we all did this , even just a little around you ,around where you live etc would start the ball rolling and that would be a good start. Lots of good things we have in our lives even now just started from small things and slowly grew from there  , all we have to do is start  it and hopefully it will spread  from there  ,as they say 1 foot at a time gets things started  and grows from there .

I’d agree with you, but there’s no point in both of us being wrong!

I never do sit ups at home because I hate domestic ab use.

All I need is the kit but to have the kit I have to buy the whole kaboodle.

How I Wish

How  I wish …Now  i wonder how many times we have said this ? Also wondering how many things we have said this for ? We say it for all sorts of reasons , we say it for missed opportunities , missed people, missed calls , missed  sales , etc etc etc , when you stop and think about it we say it for so many reasons  lol makes you wonder if there is a day that goes by that we do not think it for 1 reason or another  sheeesh. Hardly a day does by we do not  sit down and thing ohhh …if only or damm how I wish …it happens so often  I really think we don’t even notice ourselves doing   it , and  I bet if we did think about it we would get a shock as it has become so automatic to just do it , like so many other things we do on as they say  ” auto pilot ” we don’t even notice when we do it .

How  I wish ..let me start then you think of ones you have done , mine starts with How  I wish that all the injuries I have were  better that would be great , or how I wish that my hubby had not just lost his job , that would make things a lot better for us .Getting fanciful now  I could say how  i wish I had all the money I want , take note money I want , not money I need  that is 2 different things altogether . Also I could say how  i wish I had a nice big house with someone else to come in and do all the cleaning and maintenance  for me , also how I wish I could just go traveling around the world again there are so many places  i still have not been to and would love to go to. How  I wish  now being practical that I had a way to help all the friends and family that need help , I feel so helpless at times that I cannot do a thing to help …

How  I wish you can go on and on about how many things you would wish for  , but how many of them are just for your own betterment  or is all your wishing for others  ? It is so easy to get selfish when thinking like this , but having said that  people these days are mostly that way and it takes a lot of effort to turn this sort of thinking around. Thankfully though there are a lot of people who do manage to think of others  though this is becoming rarer all the time as people these days are being  taught to think only of themselves . To be fair yes we do have to think of ourselves to a certain degree  but there are still too many who take that me, me, me , culture to extremes . When and if we can get to the right point and start to see others  and  their needs we will feel a lot better about ourselves.

How  I wish .. for a world where all this killing and terrorism  and violence  will come to an end and people will start to be nice to each other and start to care and to help instead of just being their usual selfish selves. How  I wish we would stop focusing  on all the wrong things and start to look outwards , if we could the whole world would be a better place  and we would not see night after night on the news  all the reports  of all this  violence  every night , that would slowly change for the better. How  i wish more people could see the need to do this , yes  i know there are a lot of people who do think this way  but we need a whole lot more to do the same thing to make any changes for the better .

How  I wish …yes  I wish all this and more and just hope that 1 day we all will think like this , until then I will keep wishing and hoping for things to get better , not just for me and mine but for all people . How  I wish for an end to greed and poverty and homelessness  and sickness , and you know all the things that sadly a lot of people now just exploit  with no feeling for anyone or anything. This is something we all can do is try to see how to help and if that means sitting and thinking how I wish then so be it as when we do take the time to sit and think there is a chance of things changing for the better , it is the stopping for more than 5 mins at a time that will help lots..

How  I wish ….Am i the only 1 ? The only 1 who wishes that things will change for the better  for a change  ??

Unless your name is “Google”, stop acting as if you know everything!

OK. If you’re so smart, what’s the answer to this question?

I think, therefore we have nothing in common.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong ?

What could possibly go wrong ? … Lol how many times we have watched Top Gear  on Tv  and heard  these words , and how many times have we seen total disaster  happen just after those words were uttered , we have seen it so many times now we just laugh  and  just like the presenters on that show  we now yell ” don’t say that !! ” lol as we do not want the disaster that usually follows said statement . Even the other presenters on the show would look horrified  and  yell if 1 of the others would say it  and they were not expecting it  , it became almost the catch phrase of that show , as it almost always spelled trouble. Trouble was what always seemed to happen on that show anyway , with all the half baked  races and challenges they set up for each other so none of them wanted to invite trouble  by saying what seemed to be  a forerunner of more trouble.

What could possibly go wrong can also be applied  to us , how many times have we decided to go somewhere or do something only to find out it was a disaster ? Probably  too many times I would suspect because let’s face it we do not have everything  we try to do go right for us the first time we try , sometimes  it takes a few goes to get it right . If everything went right first time we would soon be unbearable to live with  as we would become so self centered  that people would not want to associate with us. Failing  a few times , while  it is aggravating  and annoying  it does tend to show us we are not infallible  and we do make mistakes , and mistakes are good for us as we learn from them and get better at what we are doing . ( Well we hope so ..lol )* fingers crossed *

What could possibly go wrong  ? While it is a funny saying now to us who have  seen it so often in a funny show it can have implications to a lot of things , in that if we do not stop and think, and work things out  then everything could go wrong  and usually does. Remember Murphy  and his law ? Making fun of a saying  does not change  the actual meaning of that saying,  so as well as having a giggle at it we should always  try to make sure that nothing can go wrong , that we plan everything out well and truly before we commit to doing anything . Committing  to doing anything before we have checked all possibilities is really just not on , we really need to think things through before we do them , sadly not many people do this and things often do go very wrong , then it is a matter of clean up, sort out , then try again.

What could possibly go wrong ? Lol just about anything  , like imagine you are doing some cooking  and you ask hubby to help and he says yes ok , then he only half listens to what you ask him to do and then you end up with something  you didn’t want , lol a cooking mess grrrr.Also  you could end up with a kitchen that smells of smoke for hours and a fire alarm going off it’s nut . That is the time you make him do all the cleaning up  to teach him a lesson  and to ensure that it does not happen again . Then there maybe a time when you decide you will go somewhere  and meet up but the directions get a bit muddled and you both end up at different places , then have to reorganize  to get together where you both should have been in the first place , lol, don’t laugh   it can happen to you as well as to anyone else  you know ” what could possibly go wrong ? ”

What could possibly go wrong can then as you see be used for a lot of fun or can actually cause a lot of mischief  , it depends on your point of view  , and it depends on how well you organize your life and the things you do . There are just so many ways we can do things that finding which way is the  right way  can be a challenge but if we are careful then we can with a modicum of sense  get things done right. While as  I said we  spent a lot of time watching this  program and having that phrase  burned you might say into our heads  that now we hate to hear anyone say it  , lol, we laugh and say ” Don’t say that !” lol even to this day we still do it  because we did it so often before . Amazing how some things just stick in your head and it only takes 1 phrase to set you off giggling ..lol.

What could possibly go wrong then  is a phrase that has stuck and  I am sure  there is a phrase or 2 that you also have stuck in your heads  too , lol do not deny it , it is 1 thing  that does happen to us all as we sometimes have a memory that is too good and remember things we would be better off not remembering . So having  left that little gem in your minds now  ( hopefully ) lol  I will leave you to think of all the phrases that are stuck in your heads now , and you will think of them now , trust me  ..lol all of them.

 

HUSBAND: “Why wear a bra, you don’t have anything to put in it?” ME:”You wear pants don’t you?”

 

My husband looks handsome without glasses. That’s why I stopped wearing them…

Games People Play

Games people play …. No I do not mean the sports people play though that does come into it at a point , I mean the games people play with others that can really , really hurt. First  though let us look at sport, in almost all of the sports you will find players “playing ”  by that I mean for example in soccer 1 of the worst games for this . A player kicks a ball along the ground and gets a tiny bit too close to another player from the opposition team , and then it is on!! Players goes down rolling on the ground screaming  he’s hurt, yeah right . when you look at it 9 1/2  times out of 10 it is all acting player not even marked , like I said soccer is the worst for this , but it has also been  done it rugby , football, tennis  and others as well . My question is why ? Why do they do  it ? Is it for extra money ? To get  some sort of advantage ? Or just because they don’t want to play anymore? Why don’t they just quit and get a real job ? Why keep doing crooked things like this ?

Then there are the games people play with other people’s money , you know the ones , the  crooked lawyers , the crooked stock brokers , the crooked bookmaker , there are so many of them and their 1 goal seems to be to fleece as many people as possible before they get caught . Doing this gets them so much money they are the ones who have all these ” off shore accounts ” . Then there are the ones who run online gambling  and boy  there are a lot of those , how do you know that what they tell you is true ? The answer is you just don’t you have no way of checking up on any of these people online or not they have a system so well set up the average punter has no hope .

Then of course on a different level are people who play you , these are the people who make friends with you , pretend to be able to help you then bring you down and it costs you big money . I know this from personal experience  and now it has led to me not being able to trust anyone very easy any more , I mean how many times do you have to be burned or to loses a lot of money before you become the sort of person who then trusts no one . Coming from this sort of thing makes that person then a person who trusts no one not even family at times and that is just so wrong , but what can you do when you have been burned by someone like this ? Makes living sometimes a bit on the difficult side as you just don’t trust easy anymore , but you do learn to live with it , you do learn to cope and just get on with it . Really it is the only way to go and not let the sods win , that makes them mad because you were able to move on.

Games people play  now what  I really want to know is why ? Why do they do it? What pleasure do they get out of hurting and or ripping off others ? What makes them get to this point ? Have they no feeling at all for the people they are hurting  ? Have they got to the point in their lives when all that matters to them is who they can rip off next ? So what brings a person to start playing these kinds of games ? Guessing here that whatever it is that starts them off  they must be  unable to stop doing it , they must be bereft of normal feelings  and  I must say I feel very sorry for them if this is what they think is a good thing to do .

Trouble is that by the time you realise you have been played you have lost not only time, invested in them , but money , and all confidence in other people , and this is the bit that it is very,very hard to come back from . It is not always just the money that hurts the most it is also that the person you thought was a friend could do this to you , even more hurtful is wondering why they thought you were the 1 to do it to . Why ? What did you ever do to them but be nice to them ? Have never been able to work out why people sink that low that they can even think of doing things like this to others . Anyway I think all we can do is pray and hope we do not come across them in our lives , and do not get hurt by them.

Games people play are so many and so varied it has now become almost impossible to tell when you meet people for the first time , I know for me personally I am now very wary of new people who come into my life . Before you say it yes  I do know that  I am not the only 1 who has been hurt this way , sad thing is that too many others have also been caught out  too and I have no idea what we as a people can do to stop this sort of rot. Respect  is they key to stopping it but where in this day and age does anyone learn  respect ? I will tell you nowhere , it is not even taught in our schools anymore , and if you want proof just look around you at the so called ” next generation ” most of them can’t even dress correctly and what they do wear is disgusting , yet they wonder why rape and violence is so rife. Sad to say I think there is no easy solution as parents these days are not allowed to be parents and so you see now what has happened.

When I was younger I had all the answers, now I am older I am wondering where the heck I put them !

When I offer to wash your back all you have to say is yes or no not who the hell are you and how did you get in here.?
