Show #242

Here in the small city of Regina, we may find it easier to connect with one another on a personal level, even for a moment, than in larger centers like Vancouver or Calgary. Maybe. But there is still a city mentality of self importance in this town that is noticed any time someone cuts us off in traffic, doesn’t hold a door open for us, or behaves apathetically when we suffer. We may have been guilty of these things, ourselves.

These actions come from a feeling of self-importance. We may not spend our days thinking of how much better we are than everyone else, but we’re all ultimately always looking out for number one.

It doesn’t take much to be better. You don’t have to be perfect. Just try harder to be nice and you’ll feel better than when you just felt self-important.

Sorry to sound preachy, but I come across as many self-important people in a day as anyone, and there seems to be a influx in people acting like jerks lately.

Be nice, god damn it!

Oh yeah, and tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for great music by which not to be a jerk. I promise that there will be no podium moments like this.
