The Rise of the Doozers

While fishing for sympathy because I have a cold, Minx told me: ‘a cold is often a symptom of a dip in the mind state’. Well, I have to admit that I have dunked, dipped and slapped onto the bottom of my state of mind. No, I’m not depressed, just very disappointed and feeling stupid. But somebody else told me that women were conditioned to forget pain which is good, because you see I’m pretty god damn sure that I am a humanitarian. I googled it and it seemed to fit in with my slightly shorter belief system that we should treat each other with dignity and respect. Hey I don’t always live by that belief. Choice phrases like: “What a complete an utter Fuckwit,” And “Jeez, that person should just go out and play with the traffic,” Have also passed my lips. But that’s because I’m also contrary and do not suffer fools gladly.

So why the dunk? Dip? Slap? Well the dunk has been ongoing. I may have mentioned the choice phrase FUCKWIT in relation to someone before (quick scan through the archives and you’ll see who I am talking about). Well, I’m still talking about the same fuckwit and for humanity’s sake maybe this fuckwit really should go out and play with some serious articulated traffic. Of course, this raises questions and dilemmas. This will cause pain to the remainder of the family and wishing death on someone else is not a very nice thing to do. Also being realistic no matter how much of a fuckwit someone is they tend to have picked up the rudimentary skill of crossing roads safely.

Dip. Fuckwit is a bully. Fuckwit is stupid as implies the name I have chosen. Fuckwit will never say: I am sorry, I was wrong. Fuckwit crossed the line that separates us from animals (belief systems, imagination, creativity and opposable thumbs) and is now just a pair of opposable thumbs sitting in an office.

Slap. We doozers are aware of all of the above, but will we doozers stand together and do something about this, will we hell.

The problem with being a humanitarian is that there must also be a slight amount of blind sight attached to this belief system. Even though there may be evidence to the contrary, you still have to believe in the underlying good of humanity. Perhaps my -5 myopia is not enough at times, but I want to believe and that stretches the blind sight a few notches down. The next thing is that once you have hit the bottom there is only one direction to go. So I will arise from my sea of snot and tissues and strepsils this Monday with new plans afoot. The Doozers will rise.

Footnote – In the end it doesn’t matter who the fuckwit is, the thing is are you going to be set of opposable thumbs, or are you going to do something?

Girl, your fuckwit, in the position s/he's in, can't surely be that much of a fuckwit??? x Howzabout you, being a truly grand specimen (IMHO) of that there race we call humanity, get your head around why fuckwit is behaving as s/he is?? And then work with it - to the advantage of all the little people (and all the folks who work for them in their turn)?? Can not be done?? V - you know it can x Girl - keep your chin UP!! XXX

Oh it's down to my throat now MM (the cold that is) and I'm coughing like I've been on about a hundred a day for the last thirty years.
Will think carefully on your comments.

Minx said...

Hmmm, hangin' onto anger ain't no good for you either girl! Open the window, shout 'fuckers' three times and let it go. I give you permission to rise above!!!!

Verilion said...

Will do Minx, just as soon as I can be sure that my lungs won't follow when I begin to shout!

Debi said...

Hope you're feeling better. Colds are also symptoms of lack of space - emotional/spiritual/physical ...

Hope the rant has helped ...

Verilion said...

Well Debi, I'm definitely getting used to less physical space, but in the end how much space does one person need? Emotionally, well since breaking up from my emtional ties and getting used to being in that situation ... there have been ups and downs, but I think I'm on a positive front there. So it must be spiritual.

Rants always help, if anything to help you clarify ideas. Even if it comes out all wrong to begin with eventually it shapes into a concrete form. So although there is no quick fix solution, I'm thinking.

And thanks, the cold is getting better, although seriously hampering my sense of humour. Every time I laugh I'm off for a good five minutes which makes me laugh even more cos I sound like Mutley!

V – If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. Bullies must be dealt with – I’d like to say "plain and simple" but, sadly, dealing with bullies is never simple. As for respecting others: like charity, respect begins at home. Above all else, you must respect yourself first, and that means zero tolerance of your fuckwit and his ilk. If you don't deal with the bastard, believe me, this will nag you and nag you, even when this time has well and truly passed.

Big deep breaths, V. Be calm, be cool, be as clinical as you have it within yourself to be. Go to it! And if all else fails, walk away. There is so much more to life than this.

Smart advice from the Minx, as ever. Rage festers, she's right, let it go and be better soon.

Verilion said...

Good advice Georgia, thanks will definitely follow it, although the bully is a she not a he. And hey Atylla I'm still waiting to try out Minx's advice but the cough is not willing.

Marie said...

Minx is right, it's not good for you to hold on to all that rage and anger. However, I do know how hard that is as I can't let go of the anger I have for my bullying neighbours.

Hope you're feeling better now.
