I know it is hard to believe but we at the Temple cannot answer every question. Sometimes we sit thinking why, why and why again. Human behaviour intrigues me and why people behave a certain way outside the norms of society sometimes astounds me.
There are some things that are strange but we can somehow find a simple explanation. Take the movie, Mulholland Drive. It was possibly the worst, tripped out movie I have ever seen. The simple explanation to this is everyone involved was on an LSD trip from start to finish.
Other things leave you wondering, scratching your head. Unless Gwenyth explains how she stewed up the name Apple for her daughter, Michael Jackson rises from beyond to reveal just why he called his son Blanket or Lil’ Kim can convince us that her newborn daughter Royal Reign will grow into her regal role, we will never know why they have subjected their children to a lifetime of taunts. Maybe to toughen them up, we just don’t know and may never know.
Today we want to address strange yet sometimes common occurrences that cannot be explained. So we begin Why Wednesday. Maybe you can enlighten us and guide us to the answers with our first WHY???
Here’s an interview with a Really Inconsiderate Person (RIP) and we hope after reading it you can share your experience and enlighten us to the answers. (Keep scrolling all the way down to leave your comments)
Interview with a Really Inconsiderate Person. (RIP)
Tamzen Temple: Hello…….. Hello………………..Excuse me, I said hello.
RIP: Yeah what?
Tamzen Temple: Ah well you agreed to be interviewed to explain your rudeness.
RIP: Yeah whatever.
Tamzen Temple: Ok a question. Why do you ignore people? You know a simple hello goes a long way.
RIP: I say hello to people.
Tamzen Temple: Not all, actually only a very select few. The rest you stare blankly at and ignore their hellos to you. I’ve had you say hello to the person I’m standing next to and completely ignore me even when I have said hello.
RIP: I just haven’t got the time.
Tamen Temple: What for one extra hello?
RIP: That’s right.
Tamzen Temple: But these are people you work with, that you see regularly in a small environment. Don’t you feel a bit rude?
RIP: Maybe I’m shy.
Tamzen Temple: Crap, I have found shy people usually come around and end up developing positive relationships with those who have made the effort. You are just constantly rude and really there’s no real reason to do that.
RIP: Maybe I’m too good for you all.
Tamzen Temple: Um we are all together in this group, equal. What makes anyone higher in rank to show rudeness? I couldn’t care if you were the Queen, I would expect basic consideration.
RIP: Look, obviously you have issues. Get over it.
Tamzen Temple: I am over it; in fact I don’t really care. I only say hello now to annoy you knowing I won’t get a response. It actually makes me a little sad that you’re missing out on getting to know the great people that are here just because you are rude. I would say you are probably unfulfilled in life and full of toxic negatives. I feel a little sad and I’d like to help you find inner peace but have decided you are no longer worthy of entering my peaceful zone.
RIP: Like I said, whatever freak.
Oh help this rude person overcome their ignorance and all they miss out because of it. I’m sure you have all met or associated with one of these beings and they have been sent to challenge us. The Temple has this rule: If you have tried six times to engage with someone like this and they continue to ignore you, you have permission to pretend they no longer exist. (Any more than this you will feel humiliated and like an idiot that you continued trying and may start to envision yourself throwing them onto a busy highway or lacing their lunch with laxatives and we would prefer these RIP not bring out the dark side in you.)
This may sound Untemple like but we’d rather you invest your time to those of value that deserve to know the great person you are.
Ommm and Peace from the Temple.
