"Can Someone See You? Are They Trying to Treat You Like a Human Being? Or Are They Trying to Scare You?"

 

In the world of commerce and trade, people think you have to fight and scrap for everything; they're not very nice. As Gurdjieff used to say, it's just cats and rats — They have no kindness, no humility, no compassion. Naturally, you blame yourself. There are some fiendishly clever ways to turn things around — to be kind without acting too weird.

 
 

(1.) the mind is vast; take one word as a symbol for an entire insult. (2.) use that one word as a focus for being quick, honest and true; it's called "street smarts." (3.) dumb yourself down; that is, "be wise as a serpent and humble as a dove." (4.) be kind to yourself; stick up for yourself whether anyone likes it or not; otherwise, you're a burden.

Seriously, Icarus, you should consider asking her out sometime. • ["That's a beautiful color on you."] Thank you ...

[Many Asians will say, "I'm Japanese," because they're ashamed they grew up in a slum in another country; sometimes you just have to assume the opposite of what they said, without interpreting, using a light touch, with care, reserve, and no undue familiarity; over time, the truth comes out] • ["What do you do for a living?] It's not interesting. • ["What do you have?" "Two cereals."] I cannot see.

[They'd rather make up an answer to appear knowledgeable than tell you they have no idea when it is – It's a form of lying, or misleading at best – it turns out the fast of Ramadan is sometime in September or October] • [When you pick up the phone, the caller says,] Who's this? • ["When is your baby due?"] I'm not pregnant. • ["Where are you from?"] You sound like Immigration. • ["Where are you from?" "Detroit."] That's right ... You said that. • ["Where are you from?" "I'm from a country." "Which one?"] That's of no importance to you. • ["Where were you born?"] In the USA. • ["Where were you born?" "Dodge City."] I don't believe it. • ["Which do you like better, stick-shift or automatic?"] I like both – I like what I have now – I'm more grown-up. • ["Who's spending the night with you?"] My friend. • ["Why did you ask me to move?"] I wanted to make a U-turn. [They honk, and even when you move to a nearby parking space away from the driveway you thought you were blocking, they honk again, because all they wanted to do was make a U-turn to grab the parking space – Essentially, no matter what you do, you're in their way] • ["Why doesn't this taxi have a meter?"] You are very rude. • ["Why have you been so reluctant to appear on my show?"] Because I think you're an asshole. • ["Would you like a card for my website?"] No thanks! – You've got a blog? • ["Wow! That's the first cola I've had in about five years!"] You don't like them? ... or you just were drinking water? • [Yawn!] • ["You came in here the other day in an orange jacket." "That wasn't me."] You look different. • ["You can hint all day long, I'm not cheating you."] I'm not hinting. • ["You can tell a man's from New York, but you can't tell him much."] I think that would be good for an asshole: 'You can tell a man's an asshole, but you can't tell him much.' • ["You can't drink four martinis!
