: Rant. Lazy people.

I just got off the phone with an old friend. This friend reminded me of why I despise lazy people. I wrote her an email today.


I get the feeling that this is going to be a long email. Go make some tea.

I don't care to "rescue" women. I know a lot of guys with money will see a pretty girl with no purpose and no direction and use her weakness as a way of making themselves feel needed. But I grew up with a mom who worked her ass off (and still does, even after marrying rich), so I don't believe in saving the weak.

My family came to the US broke as shit during an economic recession (Ronald Reagan saved this country) but we all made something of ourselves. We worked our asses off and took advantage of the economic freedom and prosperity that this country afforded us. My parents worked and got reeducated in skills that were marketable, and I got damn good grades in school because I was taught that hard work is EVERYTHING. I'd love to deport all the lazy Americans who don't appreciate the opportunities they're blessed with. Life is about commitment, sacrifice, honor, and hard work. And in between you have some fun.

When you go to Thailand this spring, I hope you see all the people living in shanty towns, just barely surviving, and all the people living far FAR below what we consider "poverty" in America.

I was in Thailand in 2006 and 1996. In '96, I saw the place where my mom grew up. It was WAY out in the jungle, and there was one electrical outlet, no running water, and the inside of the house was completely exposed to the outdoors. I bathed with a bucket. There was no modern insulation and the floor was concrete. The toilet was a porcelain bowl in the floor that was flushed with a pail of water. I slept in a tent with my brother.

I know white tourists are only exposed to karaoke bars, restaurants, and the FREAKING HUGE MALLS in Bangkok, but I hope you see it for what it really is -- a place of less opportunity. I hope you see what my mom and dad left behind and what motivates me to love where I live and everything I have, and why I was in tears (of joy) when I took the oath of citizenship in 1999.
But you won't. You'll do a lot of eating and drinking and take pictures.

I've grown up a bit. I'm noticing that I'm drawn to substantive things like success, depth, intelligence, and ambition. The good things in this life have to be earned. You have to earn my respect.

You have an obligation to honor yourself and your family by trying to be a better person.
I hope you find worthwhile things beyond drinking and hooking up to do with your time and energy.

I had a lazy friend once. I wrote him an e-mail just like that. I couldn't get through to him for one reason though: He was too lazy to read it. Lazy people do indeed suck.

I could go out and make something of my life, but I'd rather just be lazy and hang out around here.
