Time To Waste!

You have to love people who think they are always right. Or just plain dumb people. Without them I’d have far less blog fodder. Can you guess where this one is going?

Nope. Not the “I have no time” thing. We’ve been there and made fun of that plenty. It is the reverse actually, or some sort of reverse, we’ll stick with it. It is the whole “Why waste your time on that?” thing.

I’ve heard it said many a time and one just recently said it to a couple wanting to go fishing. Now I hate fishing and to me it is a waste of time, but to them it isn’t. And if I ever hear another fishing story I might just blow my brains out, not really, just added that in. But a waste of time? Since when is doing what one enjoys a waste of time?

If doing what you enjoy doesn’t get in the way of your responsibilities, you know, the adult things, bills and the like, then power to anyone. I think the person who said it, who goes and lies on the beach for hours upon hours a day in the summer, is wasting their time. But they enjoy it, so power to them.

If you want to go that way, isn’t every single thing we do a waste of time? At least a waste of time to somebody.

Now of course there are things that are a total waste of time. Like trying to beat a nail in with a tiny rock when you have a hammer lying right beside you. Not sure why that popped in, but we’ll go with it.

Heck, this whole post is a waste of time to someone. Ever think about the whole time waste thing? Ever have it said to you or said it to someone? Okay, I am done wasting your time, my time and WordPress’s time.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

I’ve had people tell me I waste my vacation when I spend it pedaling across the state. They say vacation is when you can lay on the beach and do nothing…

Well said! And I agree about fishing.
If it brings joy to a person, nothing is a waste.
Unless they enjoy killing, then that’s a problem.

Ha ha Pat. I came running when I saw the blog title, ‘Waste of Time.’ I like the way you reduce it to anything and everything is a waste of time to someone. We all like different things and can’t imagine why some people like things like fishing, LOL! But, to each his own. Now, did I just waste my time coming here? Nah, I don’t think so…:-)
