No man is a Planet

Is it me or are people not aware that other people live on this planet too? Ran a bunch of errands today...Home Depot, Market, Thrift Store, Gas Station and a Feed store where there just happened to be other people, moving about just living there lives.....LIKE THEY'RE THE ONLY PEOPLE ON THE PLANET. Ok, let me explain. Pull into the parking lot of Home Depot and people are walking across right in front of me and not looking at me. I saw them so I stopped, but not once did anyone turn or lift there head to look a cross traffic. Like they were in their own little world and they had carte blanc to the parking lot AND the facility, because inside wasn't any better. People leaving carts in the middle of the aisle to wonder off to look at something or slow walking while talking on their cell phones without a clue that there are 3 or 4 people behind them...trying to pass. It was the same way at the Market and every else I went today. People are just not aware of what's around them because they are so either focused on what they are doing or just don't give a rat's ass. At least that's how I see it.

I was comparing people with shopping carts to people driving's the same darn thing. They just merge or turn or exit or enter without thinking that that decision might affect another person. There is roughly 7 billion people on this planet and I really think that half of them live in there own little bubble and just go through life without a care in the world. Just driving and walking and shopping and merging and doing what we all do but unaware of their surroundings.

I on the other hand, am always conscience of what and who's around me. Why...because that's what human beings do. Being human means to interact with, communicate to, validate and if your at someone, preferably another person, from this planet.


  1. I was at the Glendale Galleria and a lady stood in the parking place I was about to park in, to save it for her husband, who had to go around the lot again! I should have ran her over, but I was good, I just moved on. This behavior must have just been in the air today. It is going to rain. People in California do not know how to act in the rain. Love you, Martha

  2. Dearest Bunny...wait until Ruben reads this...we are constantly amazed at how people are slow-walking in the Mall of America and just standing there in the middle of the aisle, thinking or actually NOT THINKING that there are other, actually thousands of others trying to pass!!!! The same thing happens out here....and it is frustrating! I just love the image of Le Petit Prince on the planet. How are you feeling today dearest? Anita

  3. OMG THIS IS SO TRUE!!!! The market and parking lots! Whenever I walk in a parking lot I ALWAYS stay to the left or right. I NEVER walk in the middle of the street and yet, there are dufus's all day long wandering around ... doh ... whadaay I do doh ... and the market, same thing. they should have traffic symbols. UGH.

  4. Guess who's back?????? Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

    This post is SO true. I was waiting in the car for Rick to scoot in Lowes. I saw a man park his truck so close to the car beside him there was no way the person could get in the car on the passenger side. When they came out, the lady was so mad she kicked the guys tailgate with her foot and gave it good smack with her purse! Ack!

    I am back up and running since my old Gateway Notebook caught that nasty "Storm Worm Virus" last week and it ate my entire hard drive. I lost everything. I now have a new Dell Studio 17 laptop, new Internet Security and a huge supply of data sticks to put my work on so this never happens again. If you don't have your work backed up, please get some data sticks and do so. I would hate to have this happen to anyone.

    I am back in the saddle and catching up on Blog visits this morning! I have missed you!


  5. You say it so well!
    It's crazy out there. Yesterday a lady was walking down the middle of the road in the grocery store parking lot, while we drove slowly behind her. I wanted to yell out the window to get out of the way. Sometimes i! I just was not in a feisty mood!:)

  6. Oh Bunny! I go through this each and every day. Heck, I thought it was just the people over here but it seems to be an epidemic. I swear though, if it is bad there, then I can promise you it is 10 times worse here. All day I've been thinking, does anyone care about anyone else out there? No! Too many people only care about what they are doing and where they are going. They can't even stop in front of a school to let children cross the street or to let a grandmother push a stroller with her grandchild in it to the other side. I swear, there are days when I really have to reign in my impatience and anger. I could easily give into road rage! HA! This is such a true post. Thanks for voicing what I've been thinking all along. Best wishes, Tammy

  7. PS I love the new look of your blog. I'm holding off until February to change mine again, but I might work on the music soon. Blessings, Tammy

  8. Same is true of the freeway. While driving on the freeway the other day I was cut off twice. I'm no saint behind the wheel so I know I wasn't poking along. In fact, I was moving right along with the flow when this woman squeezed her humongous SUV in front of me nearling scraping my front bumper. Really, she didn't get any further. She just stayed right in front of me because there wasn't room for her in the first place. I was in shock...disbelief. A while later, another SUV does the same thing. If I were a flittery driver that would have been it. An accident for sure. The problem is, everyone has forgotten about courtesy and caring. They're so focused on what they want, they don't care who it hurts or who feels the effect of what they do. Me, me, me and when I'm done a little more me!
    Know what? I'm still gonna be nice, darn it! Now I'm mad!
    Have a great day,

  9. Oh Bunny, how I love your new rabbit header. Where do you find these incredible rabbits of such diverse proportions??? Thanks for coming on by my blog; IT IS fun to walk into other peoples' homes and see what they do to decorate and make it THERE OWN. This friend of mine Julie, she just has the right touch and the colors and peaceful. I hope you are having a great day! Bisous, ANita
