I have the honor and privilege of having a tremendous variety of friends and acquaintances. Most are mature and reasonably adjusted to the benefits and consequences of being an adult with life skills to contend with them and move on. However, one or two of them are helpless as newborn babes when they come to anything that even resembles a challenge or hurdle, and they make sure everyone within ear shot hears just how horrible the particular days challenge is. A pain in the foot almost means a trip to emergency. An argument with the significant other provides an excuse to get drunk, a child's bad report card is, of course a phone call to the school superintendent to ostracize the incompetent teacher. Taking absolutely no responsibility for their own actions and blaming everyone else seems to, in some way remove them from having to cope, take action and remedy the situation like the rest of us. As much as I enjoy other people and their perspectives, well, that particular perspective I do not wish to be a part of. Suck it up buttercup!........... Leave the drama to the theatre!............Please!!!!!
