I realize that this is a pretty random rant but--Why do some people think the rules don't apply to them?? Why are there folks that feel that whatever the rule/law/expectation is--it's not meant for them? What is that about?

I know people that are above the law. And it doesn't matter what the law is. It could be something as simple as--McDonald's doesn't serve breakfast after 11am. Why is there always some Bozo who waltzes in at 3pm and can't understand why he can't get an egg mcmuffin?? What about the rule that says--No smoking while pumping gas? There's always someone who is pumping gas with a lit cigarette danging right over the pump? And let's not forget the restaurant rule--Shirts and shoes required. Since I live in South Florida, there's always a group, just from the beach, who have neither. Why should I have to eat my meal with the taco meat on your chest in plain view? Why? Why? Why?

There are reasons for rules. It can not ALWAYS be about YOU!! Abide by the rules!! That is all.

Your comments--priceless!!

  1. Fair enough. Just recognize that the best paid people in most professions are those that figure out how to change the rules or find loopholes.

    The tax accountant that gets you more money back.

    The lawyer that wins even though the client seems pretty guilty to the average person.

    Changing laws means changing rules...and often that is a good thing.

    Nothing wrong with getting a bad rule or law changed, but i have to agree with jewel on this one. I have listened to people who have all these great ethics and morals, and yet have rules and laws they think it is ok to break. If the attitude is its ok to break rules and laws you think are wrong or silly, life could get very messy! If i could enforce just one law it would be drunk driving. I am so sick of impaired drivers killing and maiming innocent folks cause they don't think the law applies to them.

  3. I hate when people feel like their above the rules, laws etc. I'm just like ummm....seriously?!?!!
