It's not cool. Period.

DivafromSC said...

I guess I am also lame because I have been wondering the same thing. What happened to morals, values, and pure respect not only for yourself, but others!!!

AMEN!!! If that is what cool is, then I'M NOT COOL and perfectly fine with it!!!!!! It's sad that people have grown accustomed to striving for less, wanting less, doing less, and expecting less, and giving less :-/

Angel said...

I wonder the same things on a daily basis Kyle

Self respect, respect for others, and good manners are now the exception not the norm.

Its sad the way the world has gone, its our duty now to raise a better generation

The Jaded NYer said...

I blame reality TV and our thirst for knowing other people's business and our inner voyeur. I know I'm guilty of it at times, but that mess is poison.

We all need to step back and regroup!

Keith said...

I've wondered the same things myself...over and over again..
I agree with Pro..It's not cool,

Now Kyle, you know there's always been (and unfortunately, there will always be) jackasses who think it's cool to act and be stupid. Sad, but true. This post reminds me of my granny. :-)

I think the majority of us don't think it's cool but unfortunately you're always going to have the ones saying "yeah yeah yeah! *sigh*

MzInspiredMind81 said...

Nope your not lame!! We're just living in days where nothing, not even a human life is valued and that's just sad.

these things became cool when you start to get paid to do it

Rich Fitzgerald said...

Man, I've thought this way my whole life and as cool as I am, I seem to always be in the minority, so I guess I'm really uncool. Welcome to the club.
