Saturday, January 23, 2010 "I'm O. The main character is a smoker, who is sitting on the edge of the smoking section in a restaurant when an older couple sits down close by in the non-smoking section.

After the couple is done eating, they go out to the car where their two pedigree poodles are waiting.

Current Time

After the car door was opened, the dogs pooped and peed all over the restaurant lawn. The couple then sped off in their gas-guzzling Mercedes with a huge cloud of pollution rising in the air.

  • He explains how people only see wrong in the actions of others, not themselves throughout this short story;
  • The author tells his readers about a day when he went to a restaurant and deliberately annoyed an older couple by repeatedly smoking after being asked to quit;

I believe that many people have a double-standard and judge other people for things they also do to some extent. Everybody has things they can improve on or change to some extent.

Instead of worrying about what other people are doing, people should just worry about themselves. Arrogance and being judgmental will not get anybody far in life.

If you are too busy saying how perfect you are and how imperfect those around you are, you will never improve yourself. They were too busy caught up in their judgmental lifestyle they failed to see, or even to care, about their own flaws. Some people may think their lifestyle and habits make them superior to other people. However, who is to say what bad habits are worse than others?

Maybe the main problem in society is not smoking, drinking, or letting your dogs relieve themselves on public property, but instead judging others. A biblical reference I thought of after reading this writing was from John. Jesus was brought a woman who was caught in the act of adultery. The scribes and Pharisees believed the just punishment was to have her stoned.

Nobody is perfect, or even close. However, it seems today some people throw stones at everyone they pass.
