Wouldn’t it be great to say whatever was on your mind with no consequences?
Unfortunately we live in a world where that’s not possible… Unless you are the type of person who doesn’t care about how you are portrayed to others.
I do care so I hold my tongue, a lot! There are many things I see and hear to which I don’t react because I don’t want to deal with the consequences. I don’t like confrontation, don’t get me wrong, I will stand my ground if I need to but it doesn’t happen very often.
But there are a few things that really bother me up and if there were no consequences I would love to deal with these situations…
If there were no consequences, I would stand up to the pathetic excuse of human beings who ignore the safety of others and decide to park in a no-parking zone! This includes the pavements outside school gates, double yellow lines and restricted bays!
If there were no consequences, I would tell people to stop swearing! I mean – I realise people swear when they are annoyed but don’t use it so much in regular conversations that it becomes part of the global language!
If there were no consequences, I would tell the lady/man behind me in the supermarket checkout – “NO you can’t go in front of me!” Even if they do have fewer items, I’ve been waiting in the queue therefore so can they! I know they ask but do they not realise I can’t exactly say no?
There’s many more wrongs I would put right if there were no consequences but that would make for a really long post!
So instead, I’ll ask you…
“If there were no consequences, what situation would you put right?”
