Sometimes you spend a lot of time getting upset with other people and getting aggravated with people, you know. Like, somebody who just doesn’t know how to stand in line or is rude to their neighbours. I mean, you guys seem to be doing really great up front and that says a lot about you as a community. You know, even people that can’t, you know, they just frustrate you - they drive like assholes and threaten the life of you and your kids in the car…And you get so angry at these people, right? But I realise, like, sometimes, maybe they’re just put here to show us what an asshole looks like so we don’t become one ourselves. I mean, it’s just a way to think positive about things. Make good use of a knucklehead, right?
