Small Minds and Big Influences

Small Minds and Big Influences

By W. C. Hewitt

Small things amuse small minds so; here is my list of small minds that influence large majorities:


Politicians, obviously, have the greatest impact but most are so emotionally dim witted they really can`t take responsibly for anything that they say or do but Kudos to those found deftly floundering in municipalities.


Loans officers are trained to follow strict guidelines and unless you can prove you really don`t need the loan you`ve applied for its rather useless wasting value time to even have to talk into the void.


Parking Authority Officers prowl the city streets like overzealous stalkers centering out their quarry then cowardly laying in wait in the shadows until they have left only to pounce on the unsuspecting, unarmed vehicle left behind with lustful relish. Usually the bi-product of a rejected police wannabe they inhabit every major metropolis.


And finally the poor sod in the customer complaints department of anywhere who really doesn`t want to be there, doesn`t give a damn about what the problem is and finds thinking in such an environment a major chore but that may be because it`s one of the prime prerequisites of the job.


Always remember that ignorance can be bliss.
