LIVE AND LEARN

THEY SAY AGE WILL BRING RELIEF OF CONFUSION THROUGH SAGACITY. BUT FOR ME IT IS ………….

…………………………………….. NOT WORKING OUT THAT WAY. 

 

I keep getting older, a fact which I mostly warmly embrace, but my level of confusion, in many, many ways gets worse and worse as I age.

It seems, that every day,  I am ever more vulnerable to being victimized by scammers, liars, tricksters, coyotes and other forms of political and commercial parasites. I like to tell myself, that my vulnerability is based in my innate goodness of heart. That, I am an easy mark, because it would never occur to me to try to profit from causing another creature harm or suffering or loss. So, I get blindsided when folks do it to me.  That may be true, but I am also about ready to admit to the possibility that target on my back may have as much or more to do with my stupidity and intellectual laziness as with any degree of saintliness, I may possess.

I just got plucked of a couple of hundred dollars on home improvement materials, by slicksters who lured me in with product descriptions including all sorts of high toned but amorphous words and phrases such as “heavy duty and “commercial grade,”  but not a single single numerical weight or measure to support that meaningless fluff wordage. Not much money involved, but it hurt my feelings, further weakened my already flagging trust in human people. And, did I mention.it hurt my feelings. I hope the parasite inhuman bastards choke on their ill gotten gains. 

For my part, I will just cowboy up, and try to learn from this. I mean, Hell, I’m not even eighty years old yet, there’s still time to learn lots of stuff.  So, I will do my homework on the objective weight and measure standards of the product involved, get my facts in duck like order and go back to Amazon and re-order the materials from a more honest vendor, who puts facts, figures and numerical measurements in their product descriptions. 

While I am waiting for my re-order to arrive, I will set here feeling superior for having learned something new from this situation rather than throwing a hussy fit as was my first and strongest inclination. And, if I spend a little time hoping the original crooked asshole vendor, who tricked me burns in Hell, I don’t think that makes me too bad of a person, do you?
