To play UNO with a twelve-year-old kid is fun if you don’t happen to win. A twelve-year-old kid can handle to lose a round or two, but if you are close to winning the third round, it is better to play your cards so that you lose. Otherwise, the fun will be over.
Some people can't take to lose an argument. They can be unfair, nasty and selfish but they don’t want to hear it. Some people can’t even take a hint that there are other ways of looking at life.
You can find such touchy and quick-tempered people everywhere, in workplaces, in schools and at home. Sometimes they make it all the way to the top and plunge countries to war and disaster, but they will never admit that they are or have been wrong.
You have to thread lightly when you are around them and and whatever you do, don’t suggest that they should try some relaxation technique.
Well, in life, we all have to play the selfish, unfair and nasty one, but we get over it. When the situation changes we change, or, perhaps, we find a way to come to terms with the situation. The nasty periods can last for days, weeks, or months, but if they extend for many years, they can become a second nature. Then we are in deep shit. We can ruin not only our own life but also the lives of many other people.
Isn’t it incredibly sad to think of it. How would you feel you if you had been mean and selfish all your life? For such people the luck is that they are not aware of their disease.
