In Case You Were Wondering What I Was Thinking

In Case You Were Wondering What I Was Thinking

  • Complaints about too many tourists in a location uttered by people who are, themselves, tourists, is just about the height of a lack of self-awareness.
  • Every single person who’s ever offered me unsolicited critique about my cars, clothes, jewelry, or lifestyle in general can’t afford what they’re critiquing.
  • Intellectual theft is as abominable as material theft.
  • If you can’t allow someone to merge into traffic in front of you, or to make a turn in front of you, you have more serious emotional problems than merely being rude in traffic.
  • Not all cultures are equal in their beliefs and behaviors. I don’t believe that cock fighting, dog fighting, or bull fighting are cultural manifestations that outweigh the cruelty involved. I feel the same about greyhound racing. Please don’t tell me that your culture will suffer without roosters tearing each other to pieces.
  • I’ll believe in gender equality when they stop giving out best actor and best actress awards, and simply give a best actor award, or when competitions such as billiards, dressage, or chess are open to both genders.
  • The way to stop doctors’ offices from overbooking and the resultant long waits is to write a letter of complaint to the doctor, the health group, the insurance company, and make it public on every social media outlet that’s appropriate. And get another doctor.
  • I’m waiting to see if the New York Mayor, Di Blasio, or the California Governor, Gavin Newsome, outlaw veal or chicken or whatever next. It’s coming down to that, Big Brother is going to dictate out lives for the greater good (of Big Brother). Fois gras is already verboten in Manhattan.
  • Of all the cheap people and habits, failing to tip properly rates at the top for me. I don’t care if you don’t like the system, you’re hurting a person when you don’t tip, not the system.
  • If you don’t believe that “less is more,” consider your next Thanksgiving meal. One family’s meal today could have fed all the Pilgrims for a month.
  • I’ve always believed that dogs can really talk, but they just don’t want to ruin the relationship.
