Some/most of the stuff people piss and moan about “today” pales in comparison to the hardships endured by people trekking across the plains in covered wagons while gnawing on buffalo jerky.
Compared to the challenges endured during the Civil War and its aftermath, most of us have nothing to complain about.
And, yet, we persist . . .
We regale each other with nitty-gritty details of petty complaints in order to garner sympathy and attention for our insecure egos.
What a waste of time.
Next time someone starts to complain about lost luggage or a missed flight connection or some other minor travel or traffic delay, I’m going to encourage them to change their perspective from feeling bad/sad/mad to glad.
I’ll point out that the ability to gripe, groan, and grouse about an airline snaffu proves, unequivocally, that they did NOT crash land in the Rockies and get cannibalized by the flight crew.
Aah . . . that’s better!
