Why can’t more people do the right thing instead of the selfish thing or the inconsiderate thing or the politically expedient thing?
For example …
Why don’t more drivers use turn signals to indicate a lane change? Why can’t slow traffic keep right?
Why doesn’t the counter help at McDonalds say “thank you” instead of “here you go?”
When someone says “thank you,” isn’t the proper response “you’re welcome” and not “no problem?”
Two of the three leading Presidential candidates are Boomers and the third is older, so all three are old enough to be familiar with the Mom-based directive, “if you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all.” Why can’t these candidates choose one of the obvious alternatives: a) talk about their own strengths instead of saying nasty things about each other or b) shut up?
Why can’t Congress fund infrastructure repair or education instead of a war? Isn’t it our money they’re spending? Don’t we have a say in this?
Why can’t large corporation pay their workers good wages and benefits and not outsource work? Why can’t large corporations accept very high profits instead of obscenely gigantic profits?
Why can’t businesses with automated phone systems provide an easy method for callers to locate a live human to answer questions that can’t be addressed by options 1 through 9?
Why doesn’t everyone toss bottles, cans and paper into the recycle box instead of the trash can?
What’s wrong with just doing the right thing?
And The Wheels Keep Turning
