The Beanster NonMusic: Anyone with me on this? (95* d) RE: NonMusic: Anyone with me on this? 31 Aug 00

I've gotta say, the whole tone of this thread irks me quite a bit. I, personally, like perfume, cologne, soap, deoderant, toothpaste, fabric softener, shampoo, etc. Without these things, human beings smell pretty bad, just a short time out of the shower. (Step into a taxi in the summertime and you'll see what I mean.) I don't mind the smell of cigarettes and pipes and I love the smell of marijuana (although I don't smoke it anymore). Cigars are a bit bothersome but never in a million years would I be so impolite as to point it out to someone. Really, if this is one of your big problems in life, you've got it easy, my friend. Grow up and live in the real world.

I live in a very large city. People are around me constantly. The noise, the spit on the sidewalk, the screaming (and sometimes smelly)! children, the thumping rap music from passing SUVs, the screeching subways, jackhammers, drunks, throw-up on the sidewalk, etc., etc.

This kind of bitching reminds me of people you see on the TV news who are protesting about the noise from jet planes overhead. They chose to buy a cheap house next to an airport and then they complain because it's too noisy. Gimme a break.

I don't really mind any of these minor annoyances because at least I'm healthy enough to be out there walking among the masses (annoying as they can be). Plus, I chose to live in a city and that's the way life is here. So don't be so anal. If you put things in perspective and focus on important things and on what is wonderful about life, these peeves won't bother you nearly as much.
