: I have never knowingly looked at an asshole and said the person attached needs saving. Needs to put clothes on is more like it. If you`re refering to Reynolds...he`s a professional con artist...I wasn`t the only one fooled by him and I did it for his children`s sake more than anything,..till I realized he pimps them as well.
: If you`re speaking of Dimrod and the Jackster...what do you do when an asshole blocks your path...but kick it. If that changes the person attached, so much the better...but if it just gets them to cover up...that`s good too.
xxx I suppose you're right.... It's just that I thought your cynical outlook would have given you more insight into these people. I am one of those people who can't trust other people (outside her family) until they have somehow proven themselves to me (not in any obvious way, but in certain subtle ways). I have been hurt many times by other people, & even just as a woman, men, & sometimes other women, are CONSTANTLY trying to take advantage of me (not necessarily sexually, but more often in other ways). So, perhaps I am more cautious because my existence has been pretty consistently shaped by past negative experiences with other people who were untrustworthy. That said, I do have many friends who I love dearly, who are trustworthy. I suppose my "Asshole" radar is more sensitive than most peoples'. I am talking about genuine assholes, too, not silly people who say stupid things online, because I know you think that I put up with more than most people - but that is only a virtual reality. In real life, I am very, very cautious about who I trust & take advice from.
