Rant # 5 - Poor People

blog-0316428001357927715.jpg'Ello everypone, welcome to another episode of Motion Spark's rants. I'm going to talk about poor people, now, If you think that I'm always likable and overall a good guy I'm going to confess to y'all something that it may me look like a total scumbag.

 

I don't like poor people (I don't hate them all, but I just have a lot of disconfort with them at first sight), yeah I said it, they actually bother me, their presence it's annoying to me and I can't be around them for much time, especially if they smell bad or are ugly, or don't have nice clothes.

 

Just a couple of minutes ago, some sort of an old random woman came to my house asking for something to eat. The cleaning lady was outside, and I was sitting with my laptop on the kitchen table. As soon as I hear that annoyingly soothing voice calling "heeeeello". My blood started to boil, and I started to get stressed because I have very little pattience of these people who asks for things from house to house, to rob or sell things that we obviously don't need.

I stood up and looked through the window to see who was this person, while the cleaning lady went to the porch to see what the hell she wanted, then she came inside and told me that this woman was hungry, that she would get her some coffee, I rolled my eyes, and told her, go get the coffee I'll watch her, like as if I was expecting her to pull out a gun or a knife to threaten us to give everything we own. My mom taught me to not to trust in anyone. While she was waiting outside the house, my eyes never left her while I was looking at her, with despise. Yes, I despised her already, I was thinking. "Why she wasted her life like that, to end up asking for food in random houses?", "why is she so poor?", "where in hell is she going to sleep tonight?", "why my house, damnit!".

Then the cleaning lady came out with a cup of coffee (the cup was disposable of course) and a pack of crackers and she gave them to her. I even hated the way she drank that coffee.

If I was home alone, I would probably wouldn't make any sound or just hide so she would thought that the house was empty. Yes, I'm THAT dickhead.

 

Also, I can't stand these people who sell things on the streets, or in buses, I think they annoy the hell out of the drivers and passengers who are already stressed with their own problems. And on top of that, if they can't get people to buy their crap they start to mention God or mention how shitty their life is in order to manipulate the weaker of the minds so people can "feel touched" by their stories and naively buy their crap (by crap I meant, crappy stickers, crappy pens or pencils, crappy gums, crappy keychains, crappy everything!). But I'm not buying that bullshit. Also I remember telling my neighbours friends when I was much younger, that I would be ashamed if my dad was a taxi driver, they called me an asshole for saying that, but that was what I trully meant. I fill my mouth saying that I'm humble, down to earth and whatnot, but by no means I would accept to live under a hard economical situation, I guess I am an spoiled kid, which I never dared to call myself.

 

I have no right to judge these people because I'm ignorant of what things they are going through and how hard their life is, and I learned in church (wow! I'm quoting church), that I should not give my back to any person because that person could be Jesus in disguise, and I just feel so bad to be THIS judgemental but I just can't help it. Am I right to be like this about them? am I wrong? you know it's an internat battle between morals, justice and what's right and what's wrong.

 

But at the same time it's just not fair to put their children to sell things for them. I don't remember the last time I went to the McDonald's auto-mac without encountering kids trying to sell shit to me, and if I refuse to buy, they say that they are hungry and they want money. I always ended up giving them some coins, but it's obvious that they are being manipulated by adults because their words are so mechanical it's very clear they've learned what to say when people don't want to buy their shit. Is this they way they want to succeed in life, their parents teach them to ask for money, and that's what are they gonna do for the rest of their lives. That's the part that make me dislike poor people, because they are not hungry for this world, they don't strive for success. They want everything given to them in their hands, since it's more easier to ask for money. I'll say FUCK THEM ALL, they can be anything they want but they just prefer to have the easier way to get an income.

 

UPDATE: The cleaning lady just told me that after she drank her coffee, she was shameless enough to ask for money to buy a gas barrel. See my point here? I'm even more pissed to poor people now :angry:

While i can agree that poor people are annoying, i don't see why you are not moving out from Panama since the whole country is a mess when it comes to the economy. Its a poor country. Why don't you move to the US? Or Canada?

 

I'd say that you are rich since you throw shit on those who are in worse condition then you.

Sorry to hear that.

lol? I think you're just naive.

 

At any rate you're half right. You have to consider the fact that you only see the poor that are the waste of society. So yes you should be angry at them. You should give them nothing. There are thousands of other poor people that you don't see. Why? because they are actually trying to improve themselves, which surprisingly, does not involve begging.

 

I'd change your hate from poor people to beggars. Poor is pretty loose while beggars are not. For example, a lot of people would be considered poor since I come from an upper middle class californian family. A beggar is just someone who asks for free things, which seem to be the type of people that annoy you.

I have no excuse for the way I think, I consider you a very close friend even if you were homeless. But we all have corruption inside of us, no matter what kind, but as a difference I decided to share this while other people don't say anything because of fear of rejection and whatnot.

I hope you can forgive me if I offended you. :(

Did you really do the best in everything you did? You didn't squander any opportunities or waste any time? Perfect grades in all of your classes?

I'm very naive as well, and your comment makes a lot of sense, maybe the people that annoys me are beggers, because there are a lot of poor people that are an inspiration to society, how they literally came out of the shithole they were into and worked to the bone to have a better life, these people have my respects.

 

 

 

Motion is defiantly not Bruce Wayne xD

now I ask wut...

I'm taking into consideration that you have no idea that Panama even existed before, so it's not true when you say those things. This country is not a rathole, and it's in fact, the most productive country in all Central America, despite the fact of our size.

Now I'm not defending it, and I'm not rich by any means, but I am not poor either, let's say I am economically stable enough to live a confortable life.

 

 

 

Dude... this sound meaner than me.

I don't know you, I don't know how mean you are.

In my area: 

 

You poor? Apply for welfare, live off the taxpayer's money, buy yourself nice stuff like smartphones, Xboxes, designer clothes, new car, new TV, and eat out at the nicest restaurant every day. 

 

But you can't afford school lunch, textbooks, or even pencils for that matter. 

 

I know that feel bro.

Wow, man-strating a bit are we, Motion?

 

Cursing all poor people is quite a rash judgement, don't you think? Sure, there's people who are lazy or want everything as a hoof-out, but there's a lot of people who might just want a hoof-up. Most poor or homeless people probably don't want to be living a life like that (who would want to have to live by the skin of their teeth like that?), but they don't have the means to better themselves. Sure, rags-to-riches stories (or at least rags-to-comfort) d occur, but most people need a helping hoof to get out of the vicious cycle that homelessness and poverty can be.

 

Just my $0.02. I've been thankful enough to never have to face these problems in my life, so my perspective is outside-looking-in, so not sure how much it's worth. *shrugs*

This is why I like Communism....we take the poor and make them working-class citizens! WORKING POWER! :D

again, I don't understand what you mean. :/

They didn't choose this life. They are only being "obnoxious" because they're desperate. Human survival is wired into our brains, and if they didn't eat, they would starve to death. They only make their kids beg because they're hungry too.
