I don't think I will ever understand human behavior.
Why do people think that they deserve to get treated better than they treat others?
Haven't these folks heard of the Cardinal Rule or the Ethic of Reciprocity.
Greek philosophers say:
"Do not to your neighbor what you would take ill from him," Pittacus says.
"Avoid doing what you would blame others for doing," Thales says.
"What you wish your neighbors to be to you, such be also to them," Sextus the Pythagorean says.
"Do not do to others what would anger you if done to you by others," Isocrates says.
The bible says, "Love thy neigbhor as thyself."
And then the man on the street says,"One favor deserves another? You wash my back and I'll wash yours?"
And schucks, parents tell kids, "keep your hands to yourself, but if he hits you again, you hit him back!"
It's easy to understand. In science, they say for every action, there is a reaction. Well, I think that's what they say. Science wasn't my best subject. But umm in writing classes it's called cause and effect.
So what the heck should happen after you call someone and tell them you are stranded and they say, "I am shooting pool with my father and best friend."
