"What is happening to people?"
This is a post from the Rochester, NY, R&R section of a particular person's "LIST" and I just felt compelled to share as this rings true in my hometown of Vancouver as well....



Let me preface by saying I've never posted anything on this section or any other section of Craigslist but I'm feeling very compelled to do so right now.

I just got back from a trip to Wegmans and am in awe at the current state/behaivor/mindset of "people". As I'm walking in, I go to grab a cart and notice three guys (late teens/early 20's) all standing together but on their cell phones texting and blocking the majortiy of carts. So I sidestep them and grab a cart from the sole lane they weren't blocking. I get my cart and proceed but I can't help but notice the people lined up to return bottles/cans. I'm not knocking them (I'm pro-recycle) but it looked like they literally crawled out of a dumpster and needed the deposit money to get through the night. I asked myself "why don't they just stop consuming this sugarwater and use the money for a necessity?" Then I realized Coke and Pepsi are a necessity for the majority of people in this country. I should also point out that each one was overweight (if not obese).

I get inside and start doing some shopping. The procuce section was the most "normal". I grabbed some apples, a few bananas, and some strawberries since it's that time of year. As I left the produce section, it started getting depressing. I see a kid poking his finger through a package of ground beef and laughing his cute little head off. I don't blame the kid (I did that once too when I was his age but my mother grabbed my hand and basically let me know if it ever happened again, I'd lose my hand). However, I DO blame his mother for not caring the least about her son destroying multiple packs of meat. She was actually entertained by his behaivor. So I grabbed some chicken breast and continued on. As I'm passing the "organic food" section, I hear two guys laughing hysterically so I walk back a few steps to see if George Carlin had risen from the dead doing one of his stand-up acts. Nope...wasn't him. The two guys were "tickling" each other. In laymans terms, they were a couple of gay guys. I'm not anti-gay, but it was just weird watching them be so flamoyant in public. Being "out" seems to be the "in" these days.

I get to the cereal isle and see a guy pushing around one of those carts that resembles a car for the kids to sit in. His gf/wife was about 10 feet away yelling out loudly which cereal he wanted. He had his back turned to her pushing the cart the opposite direction with the two kids screaming their heads off as he's looking at his cell phone. I stop at this point waiting for him to pass me but he's in the middle of the isle and knocks into my cart. One of the kids then throws a canned fruit. The guy stops looking at his phone and gives me this annoyed look as if it's my fault im in his lane. A fuse started to light up inside me. As he starts to move his cart back to the right side of the lane, I throw my shoulder into him and knock him off balance. He says "hey" but in a very non-threatening way, so I glace back and he looks away. His overweight gf didn't seem too pleased with me. I grabbed some Wegmans brand cereal with almonds (it's really good).

On to the next isle to get some pasta and sauce. I see a mom that resembles my math teacher in high school. Is it her? Can't be...nope, wasn't her but I instantly smile since I was very fond of my math teacher. She smiles back. Her daughter was next to her..I'd say she was 15 or 16. Lip peirced, glazed eyes, and of course TEXTING. The whole time, this girl is rolling her eyes and being dramatic. About what? Who knows. Most likely something to do with a text. I glance at her and she glances back at me really quickly and then looks back at her cell phone. For that split second when I was able to see her eyes, I felt a weight on my shoulders. This girl, along with the majority of people in the store, had severe mental issues.

What happened to these people? Is it the fluoridated tap water? The anti-depression medications? The fast food consumed on a daily basis? The chemicals in diet sodas and chewing gum? The constant need for people to feel "connected" by using a cell phone but really aren't connected to anything? Movies? Music? Reality televison? Lately, the majority of people I see look dead inside. Battered...beaten...tormented. SLAVES. I then ask myself, "What will these people do when civil unrest and social breakdowns occur in the not so distant future? It's going to be an ugly sight. Well, thank you for reading my thoughts (for anyone that made it to the end). Just the ramblings of a 30 year old male who's losing hope on "people".

It is happening everywhere. Multi tasking has reached new heights, however, it us not really multi tasking, more, that life has sped up so these people think normality is cramming as much stimulus as possible into every waking moment. They are of course, misguided. They end up unable to function as a normal human being.

Their lobotomy has occurred through lack of attention to the fact that they are actually flesh and blood, with emotions and all the other attributes of being a living being. They traded in their humanity (unwittingly) for toys and pursuits that make them feel more connected to computers - and that box n the corner of the room which pumps out its delirious mixture of full time sensuous yet mind numbing stimulus. The numbing is misconstrued as peacefulness.


Well, I could go on...
blahblah Its not going to get any better..

Re: "What is happening to people?"
Well I thought your piece was extremely entertaining and right on track.

It's becoming crazy out there. I blame it on technology and bad parenting.

I see this behavior everywhere I go. And then if something happens (like the guy knocking into your cart), HE is the one who blames YOU.

People laugh, but I truly feel as if evil spirits are invading the non-believers. Seriously, I do. I know some will mock it, but it's almost like we're not dealing with humans anymore.

Great letter...


So true.


I find it totally disturbing how people are so addicted to staring into their cellphones all the time.


It's awful actually.


And they'll do anything it takes to defend their cellphones, right down to willfully being tracked in the future when things are made even more blatant than they are now.

It's accelerated evolution. Humanity is dividing with the main part devolving. It's probably a natural reaction to overpopulation, the human race is being whittled down and those who choose to live like that are quickly headed for extinction. Or I could be wrong.

Hmm. As the other Brit said, they're trading their souls for toys.

I would say that on a metaphysical level, part of TPTB's strategy is to get people locked into the world of 'samsara' - the world of impermanence, suffering and death - by stimulating their desire for what are fundamentally little pieces of crap. They make these things out to be valuable, fluoride-heads take things as they say they are.

Just like our bridges and infrastruture are decaying, because no one is fixing them, the same "message" is being pounded into people.

Alot of people are quick to blame people on welfare, when really it's the welfare state that's been CREATED.

Listen, there will always be poor people, however, their spirit has been taken away. That begets the next generation. When hope is lost....decent jobs, medical care, etc, added with the false focus on "what" success means, it demoralizes people...because they recognize everyday that they "dont' measure up"...

Now, throw in drugs and unhealthy foods at cheap prices, you make it worse.

These people then raise the next generation...which often does worse.

You occaisionally hear of someone being able to break out of the cycle...and that's ONLY because someone good came along to give them HOPE, to guide them on what's "right".

To me..it's all manufactured. I'm not even a psychologist, and know what needs to be done.

Re: "What is happening to people?"
A couple winters ago my next door neighbor came on to my driveway with a pic axe and started to drive holes into the ice covering driveway. I went out to ask her what she was doing and she said " I am taking my yard back" . I said that is my driveway you are messing up you have to stop. She instead got three more people to help her. I became angry and threatened to call the police. They left. Then when she wanted to use my driveway for her loads of gravel and I refused her she became irate. I mentioned the ice pic incident and she denied doing it. I got mad and called her a pedophile. Then a few nights go at 2 in the morning I heard something in the woods out back, could of been a bear or a Moose. Went on the deck and looked and saw it was that same neighbor. I called out, what are you doing.? What s it to ya, she replied. It will if I shoot you, I said. She ran. Found out soon after that she stole some yard art and broke it and threw into the street.
People are going nutty, that is for sure. I have to hold my tongue for fear they person I get mad at will take some kind of revenge. Where is the love?

The constant need for people to feel "connected" by using a cell phone but really aren't connected to anything? Movies? Music? Reality televison? Lately, the majority of people I see look dead inside. Battered...beaten...tormented. SLAVES. I then ask myself, "What will these people do when civil unrest and social breakdowns occur in the not so distant future? It's going to be an ugly sight. Well, thank you for reading my thoughts (for anyone that made it to the end). Just the ramblings of a 30 year old male who's losing hope on "people".
