"Meanness don't just happen overnight."
Overheard in the old farmer's tractor barn
Seems like some folks are schooled to meanness, or embittered into a permanently nasty condition….it strikes me that the old farmer is right, again, a person just doesn't get mean all at once, whatever the creeping causes may be…
I'm going to try to stop my next potentially mean thought right in its tracks.
I want to stay off the casual, step-by-step path to meanness, don't want to go there.
