I’m a hypocrite 1.570795

Observed/ heard/ read by yours truly:

  • (Profile on a matchmaking site, that requests no email addresses in description) “Looking to marry a God-fearing Muslimah who is honest… can contact me at myname at the opposite to cold site… you will find me if you are smart”
  • “I think your opinion is stupid and wrong, and I don’t like it that you don’t respect or have confidence in my capability”
  • “I won’t put up with anyone treating you the way I do”
  • (Demonstrated by people and governments) “I would like you to have the right to choose, but if you choose something I don’t like, I’m going to punish you”

I’m stuck on “I believe in always respecting the law but I still jaywalk”.ย  I guess on a hypocrisy scale of 1 – 10, I’m still half a PI, i.e. 1.570795

โ€œEvery man alone is sincere. At the entrance of a second person, hypocrisy begins.โ€ — Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. I have simi;ar observation everywhere in life…
    For most of us, ‘ you are hypocrite if you don’t like me’.
    By the way…I read somewhere
    PI/2 = 90 degrees ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. yeah that too ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s usually where my opinions stand from most others – 90 degrees, perpendicular ๐Ÿ™‚

    “I feel like a diagonally parked car in a parallel universe”

  3. Haha, it was funny. Was that shaadi.com ? I was such a loser in last August that I get paid subscription to that site. I just checked my record, I signed up on Aug 5th 2007, 2 days before this post ๐Ÿ™‚ . Unfortunately, I did not find any thing funny there.

    โ€œI wonโ€™t put up with anyone treating you the way I doโ€

    Actually, I like the above quote. It was once philosophy of my life. I thought that I can express my frustration to my partner but if some one else tries to do that, I would not tolerate that and I would expect the same from her. If my partner has some problem with my mom, do not get in argument with her. Come to me and show me your frustration, I will do what ever I can do for her but if she gets involve herself then she would lose me. If you respect my circle then you will have access to whole 2*PI*R (the circumference of circle)

  4. Sites are there to help people – don’t be hard on yourself for signing up ๐Ÿ™‚

    The quote is aimed at behaviour where people are (for example) rude or inconsiderate themselves to a person but wouldn’t accept anyone else being rude to that person. If a behaviour is unacceptable, it should be so by everyone, including us. My humble opinion ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yah I agree with your opinion that’s why I used “was” but still I guess there is some room to make error on judgement part. You cant be polite all the time so you would behave not your best all the time but if some one else tries to be nasty to my mate or my family “ANY” time then it is not tolerable. Don’t mess with the family, right ? ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. And I pray that we work towards being consistent and fair to all in our practice and demonstration of (good) values, aameen!
