I'm a Canadian guy, but not that Canadian guy. I got a little girl and a crummy job, I got a good woman and I got gray hairs and scars. I've been around the block a few times, until I figured out, if you throw a left in there you can get off that block. Now I'm wandering uncharted territory. I think I saw Dylan, Earle, Cave and Hiatt went this way. Waits and Cohen too. I use songs as landmarks and books as shelter. And I'm not nearly as poetic as this might make me seem. I'm just a guy.
I am silently resentful of those of you that I see constantly going to the movies, eating out, shopping, bitching about money, eating out again, wearing new clothes, buying groceries I can’t afford, going to the gym… AND I NEVER SEE YOU GO TO WORK!!
Where does this magic…
See, this is the thing about social media, you can show people what you want them to see and hide the rest. I’m not just talking about pictures. Not everyone wants to talk about their jobs or their families or every single aspect of their life here. They may only show the good because they don’t want everyone to know about the bad. Others may only complain about the bad in their life and never celebrate the good things that happen to them publicly.
So, stop getting your panties in a wad because you think someone has it sooo much better than you, because usually they don’t!
Or they do and their head is so far up their ass they have no fucking clue.
I mean it’s really either or. But in this case I stand by the original post.
It never said anyone had it “sooo much better than you,”. In fact I get the point but I also get it was said as a jest of humor…A joke, a gag?
My panties aren’t in a wad because anyone has it better than me, I get the same feeling from K. the original poster. It was more about wonder. How the fuck do some people seem to live these lives full of stuff and never seem to work the crazy and exhausting work others do for one tenth of what they got.
It’s exasperation. You don’t seem to get it. So don’t get your panties in a wad!
