entitled to perfect????

Did I lose you yet???? Again I have been plagued by a random thought & just felt the need to share....

I have come to notice that in our society, we have come to believe we are "entitled to perfect". There is no room for mistakes... although studies show we have become lazier & more stupid by the second, we sure as hell expect perfection from everyone around us. We expect perfection from our family, our friends, people we do business with, our doctors & educators, and even our government. There is no room for error..... If someone makes a mistake we immediately disown, divorce, fire or sue them as soon as humanly possible. How the hell did we get to the point that we feel we are entitled to something so unattainable in our own lives??? If you follow Grey's Anatomy you might have seen the episode where Dr. Bailey
tells interns that her husband can go towork & make mistakes and it's no big deal. But if she makes a mistake, it's critical...and that we all make mistakes.

I'll admit, I get angry when I have to wait to long in line. I get frustrated when I am quoted one thing, when it's really another. I have seen K. go red in the face more than once over the sloppy presentation of a McDonald's hambuger. But could I do much better??? Why do I expect to recieve so much more than what I give in my daily life??? Aren't we all human?? And isn't it human to error??? Something to think about........
