An interesting article....  
7 Reasons the 21st Century is Making You Miserable.

That's all...
Current Mood: calmcalm
Current Music: "Sacred River" by Gandalf. WTF was he thinking??

Lol Where do you find this stuff? I kinda like the 21st century.

Somebody linked to it in a friends journal. Yeah, I like it too, especially the better healthcare stuff, but I thought it had some good points.

Anyone who has worked in the customer service industry has a high annoyance factor. I know I do. I actually had one of my coworkers say, after an annoying customer had left, "Wow. I would have told them off halfway through that conversation."

True. In theory it's good for you. Apparently you have more tolerance for fools than some other people do...
Robyn Goodfellow: apathyrobyngoodfellow on April 7th, 2008 05:51 am (UTC)
Meh. I don't really have more tolerance... I'm just able to hide my intolerance better. Plus, my coworkers and I IM each other. It's easier to tolerate someone when your friends are sending you messages asking if you'd like the Chainsaw of Natural Selection.

That's full of win.

I have very little tolerance for fools, but on the other hand I almost never show them that I'd rather converse with a dead mule.

I do bitch about them later though, and they do screw up my day, which is why I'd despise having a job where I'm forced to deal with them. :(

LOL I am assuming the title was intentional.

I have the dumb today. Can you explain what you mean?

Oops! Could have explained myself better - I mean that in Section 7, "The Outrage Machine", the writer says this:
If some music site posts an article called, "Fall Out Boy is a Fine Band" and on the same day posts another one called, "Fall Out Boy is the Shittiest Fucking Band of the Last 100 Years, Say Experts," which do you think will get the most traffic? The second one wins in a blowout. Outrage manufactures word-of-mouth.

and then titles the article "7 Reasons the 21st Century is Making You Miserable" - I dunno if it was intentional or not, but I LOL'd.
I am unsure if I explained this well :/

Wow. That article was fascinating and oh so true. Kinda makes our future look a bit grim as well.

Which makes it part of the outrage machine, eh?

At first I thought this was about the real estate company..... lol

Considering the housing market, that's an entirely probable thing to think...
