You know what’s stupid? The fact that I have to drive to work every single day. It’s goddamned ridiculous that every day, I drive 45 minutes to work and 45 minutes home. EVERY DAY!! The same damn commute, wasting the same amount of gas. And….in the same traffic everyday too with the same people!
Humanity is ridiculous if you really think about it. We set up all this bullshit that we have to do, all these rules and regulations, all these processes we must follow and we do this shit every day. Really? Why? In the big picture, why? Also, how bad is it for the environment that we have to commute to work everyday?
The problem for me is that I work at a University and I live in the country, where I want to live. All the homes located near my job are very expensive with outrageous taxes. So I live further away. I’m not advocating an answer, because what the hell can I do? I don’t want to stay over night at work, obviously that would suck. I don’t want to move closer because that too would suck cause I love where I live. I don’t want to get a new job because there aren’t a lot of jobs near where I live. I think what I’m advocating for is working from home. Like…how much resources would that save! I wouldn’t have to drive to work everyday, they could keep the lights off in my office or consolidate the office. I realize that for some jobs (mine included) this isn’t as easy as you would like. People expect you to be at your desk and supervisors are terrified of letting people “work from home” because they fear they cannot supervise them. But goddamn…it would save on fossil fuels.
Anyway, it’s just stupid. It’s stupid human bullshit that we’ve made up and we have to adhere too. Just like all the mindless, pointless paper work we’ve created for ourselves for really no purpose at all. I think we just keep creating all these rules and regulations and processes to give ourselves something to do and no one can actually get anything important done. Gah. Humanity is dumb and hence we will destroy ourselves because we can’t see beyond what’s right in front of us. Once we get too big, any organization etc just seems to crumble in upon itself and operate like total shit. Am I wrong?
Who will clean up this damn mess we’ve made and impose some sort of order upon our chaos? I mean really? I know if every single person were to look at the problem they’d see the clear answer to so many problems, but actually fixing them would take an act of God. We can’t change a damn thing because we’d only get in our own way with our stupid bullshit. It’s obnoxious to a high degree. Sometimes I want to run for government. My speech would be that I have no money to campaign, I have a full time job so you won’t see that much of me, however I know how stupid humanity is and how blind and ignorant we are toward problems we face. We seriously need someone with no money and a helping heapful of common sense to try to reform all this bloated bullshit we’ve created. Everything just bigger and bigger until it’s a monster that’s out of control. Too bad that only the rich with ulterior motives can be elected into office. Seriously how fucked up is our country? The rich advocating for the rich, the poor getting poorer, the middle completely unheard in the chaos. Bah.
Can I just work from home? I’m sick of my pointless long commute that is killing our planet simply because humanity is too dumb to solve shit now that we have the technology to do so. Everyone that can should work from home. Imagine the drastic decrease in traffic and pollution. Craziness.
We’d probably even get more accomplished. Shit..some countries are trying out shorter work days because people are more motivated and focused! Holy what!! Imagine that, trying something different.
And that, my friends, has been something stupid for you to enjoy.
