Why do People Think They Know Everything?

I have been getting into some debates on Reddit. I don’t want to get into it here but it’s something that’s always controversy and also deals with politics. Anyway we were saying the same thing just taking it out of context.

When you open your mouth, open your ears as well

I know when chatting with friends it can get into a debate because just reading a post can be misconceived. A lot better talking because it’s a lot easier to fix the misunderstanding. Well that happened to me on Reddit and only have been there for about 18 months.

Now Reddit took their comments off and I am on a week suspension. Although all I want to bring from this is the whole arguing thing. I mean someone you don’t know has to complain about what you post and doesn’t want to listen to your explanation is just narrow minded. We all should be able to listen or more than getting suspended or your post deleted. I really like to think people don’t really mean it as bad as I see it. Of course I am wrong more times then am I right but that’s neither here nor there. My point is don’t be narrow minded or stuck up enough to know you can be wrong. I know I am wrong enough

Sometimes it seems like it’s their way or the highway

I do like it when I am right and I am sure you are too. What I don’t like is when people can’t admit they’re wrong and/or give you credit when you are right.

This is kinda related to what I put on Reddit. When I lost my last job I forgot to sign a router. That’s a piece of paper that has each procedure and when you finish you sign it. I forgot, made a mistake.

I got pulled aside by human resources and they showed me the paper and all the BS. Well what they didn’t know was about my epilepsy and the fact I just had one a few months before that day. Since I had that seizure and still today I have been having short term memory problems and problems with proper nouns. Well when I opened my mouth and getting to form my first word she yells at me to, “Shut up and stop lying.”. She through a nuclear bomb on the little bit of anger I had that day. I got fired and on the way out one touched my shoulder. What I regret is not turning around and punching them in the face. I could of used self defense I think. I wasn’t really mad about getting fired but being discriminated due to my epilepsy.

I know the law says I have to tell them about it first but I shouldn’t have to. I feel that way for everyone. We should have a right to privacy even with our employer. I had a boss hire me for manager when he knew of my disability. When he retired his assistant manager took his job. A few months later she puts me in a circumstance that I wasn’t trained for. I got it all done but came close to really screwing up. Then a week later I get demoted because I almost didn’t make it to the bank. I never go to the bank. After that I found a new job and left. This is why I think we should have the right to tell them or not and it won’t affect our employment. If she was the one that interview me I probably would have never gotten the job.

Summing it up

Just because you see it one way doesn’t mean that’s the only way or even the right way. I don’t understand why people have to argue over the most simple things when one day you get up might be your last. The days the sun is out, birds singing, comfortable temp and you don’t have anything you have to do it’s just Heaven to sit there and enjoy what God gave us around us.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
— Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
