My Pet Peeve for the Letter B
B is for Boredom
When people are constantly complaining that they are bored and yet they do nothing to make excitement in their lives is yet another Pet Peeve of mine. I know a few people that just sit around and complain about life and how bored they are. The young kids today are a good example. If they have completed the last level on their hand held game console or if there is nothing good on TV, they hum and haw for hours about having nothing to do.
When I was a kid there were no electronic games or internet. We had a TV antenna that only gave us maybe 25 TV stations and that was on a good day. We played outside and went knocking on our friend’s door and then spent the entire day outside entertaining ourselves. It’s not just children that seem to find themselves being bored. I know of a few adults who constantly complain about having nothing to do and I am not sure why. If I have a quiet day to myself that is the best I can ask for.
Life is what you make it…If one refuses to use one’s imagination..it will be boring.
