It wasn’t too long ago that people actually had some respect for themselves and others. Sometimes this was manifest in simple gestures: opening a door for someone or waiting your turn in line. Sometimes it was more overt: excusing yourself for letting a burp or (God forbid) a big smelly fart rip out.
That was then …
It seems that nowadays there are no holds barred. It’s a free for all and people are dead-set on claiming their “rights”. No more simple gestures, no more excusing. Now we are inundated with a bunch of cell-talking, expletive flying, crazy driving masses of citizens demanding unearned respect.
Okay, so we’ve moved forward. Some more graciously than others. I can accept that. What I cannot abide by however are the people that have apparently left all decorum at the door and dared to venture out to share their assests with the world … and not in a very good way either.

Maybe I’m just jealous ‘cuz I can’t carry the look:
I hope to never catch Mr. Farish in this:
Although he could carry it off like a champ.
What is the world coming to when this is ok?
I do not know.
What I do know is that I will be stopping at Sams Club on my way home to purchase an industrial size bottle of soap so that I can try and cleanse my eyes of these disturbing images. Let me know if I should get some for you too.
