I’m not sure how it happened, but at some point people became convinced they have the moral right to intervene in the lives of complete strangers. I think it’s because our schools have worked too hard to build up everyone’s self-esteem, and everybody thinks they have all the answers.

Yesterday my daughter was being annoying in the check-out line at the grocery store, and I told her if she didn’t settle down, I was going to put her in Irish daycare. She then explained that daycare was closed, and I countered that only regular daycare was closed.

Irish daycare is always open because it’s where you lock your pain-in-the-ass kids in the trunk and then go into a bar for a few hours.

The woman in front of me then took it upon herself to glare at me and say that child abuse is no laughing matter. I didn’t really feel like getting banned from the grocery store right next to my house, so I didn’t say anything but just stared at her tits until she turned away.

It seems like a majority of our problems in this country are a direct result of people just not minding their owned damned business. Personal issues like abortion and gay marriage suddenly become topics of political debate, and at this very second the U.S. is using troops to meddle in the affairs of countries across the globe even though we can’t even get our own shit straight.

Both our government and its citizens need to take a step back and realize that if it’s not an issue that affects you directly, then stay the hell out of it.
