Have you ever tried counting the number of times you lose your cool in a day? Thanks to those genius neighbors, captains of cabs, pilots of auto rickshaws, master chefs at tea stalls, and the list just grows. It is nothing less than just a cake walk for them to get our blood pressure beyond thresholds with their world class abilities such as spotting gaps in traffic, signal jumping skills and sugar sprinkling stride in our coffees. Just adding to our woes are those IPL players who could manage to miss a simple catch. At least they sometimes get to be called the stylish player for dropping the catch in style.
It is worthwhile to note that a world where everything is perfect and everyone has an IQ level matching that of Einstein’s and ours would be a wonderful place to live in.
Half of us would kill ourselves for living a mediocre life and the other half would still continue to be celebrities and rock stars, just the way they are now. Let’s just focus only on the first half for now, for all practical purposes. We are the set of people who long for likes on Instagram and still pretend that it makes no difference to life. That joy we get when the count in likes increase by a few tens and twenties overnight just makes our day, and we walk on the streets like there is a red carpet already. Now you fail to remember that the person who you called an idiot a couple of days back is the one who has elevated your social status by lending a like. Does this make that person a larger person and you small? No way! Once an idiot, always an idiot. It is just a duty that they got to perform, like voting and paying taxes. Voting to put it on Facebook and paying taxes, just because we work for the service sector (Fictional and not intended to criticize the system – I mean it :p ).
These idiots whom we come across everyday give us a purpose of existence. They give us a sense of unquestionable pride. They are the warriors of our self-confidence and a ray of hope to justify our literacy. Gone are the days where we used to long for an appreciation from the teachers in school. It is time to earn it for yourself by pointing out the flaws in the thought process of the weaker human you are in contact with. Make stories of how stupid can one get at a given situation and boast about how you are such a blessing to mankind. All this would just be a far-flung lie with the absence of these lovable idiots and their critical actions.
Let’s just continue to cherish them and glorify their unique capabilities. Just be assured they are never going to let you down, for a simple reason that you think you are superior.
Duh! What an idiotic post.
