Errors? Mistakes? Does it Really Matter?

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.

One wrong word spoken by a man can hurt the best relationships.

I can best describe a human error as a hungry wolf that lurks around each corner of our lives and when we stumble, the hungry wolf is no longer hungry. I know. It's a wonder that today I do not look like a shell of a man, a shadow of my former life due to those numerous meals that "I" became because of all the stupid errors that happened in my life.

I found out something very fast not so many years ago. When I made a mistake in front of people, I used to growl, kick the ground and hate myself. But I came out better when I just forced myself to laugh at yours truly. For the most part, even those who guffaw at me, will stop because (those) people all get such a kick out of watching people like me stumble, grumble, and my face turn a tomato red

Life is funny. People who are about to present a bit of wisdom to the people who hear and when I say life is funny and let my face turn real stone-like, I can at least sound wise. I stopped doing that years ago. Six to be exact. I have wasted so much of my breath that I found that I need those breaths because of the advanced age that I am now.

Then there are degrees of errors and faux pa's. That French word means social blunder. I also know about this embarassment. Life is funny. Faux pa's make us people with humble hearts. Don't turn to another hub. And please stay away from your favorite TV show or radio news program. You will thank me later.

The errors and faux pa's are these: Simple errors; Important errors; Vocal errors; and Humorous faux pa's. Most of the items on this list are present in daily life, day and night. They never eat nor sleep. And they never slumber or sleep. So I want to warn you ahead of time before you embark to work, on dates, on date nights for married folks, and those awful unpredictable faux pa's that you would pay all of your worldly possessions to have a re-do.

Unfortunately, that doesn't work. Pal, we are entering real life. So do not try to tell me that you were not warned.

This man cannot help the way that he's dressed, so he hasn't made a mistake.

This action started-out great, but caused the pretty girl a bit of shame.

This action started-out great, but caused the pretty girl a bit of shame.

Notice the guy at the top location. The one with a checked shirt. He looks very nervous because he is very nervous. He has broken the Cardinal Sin of Mistakenly saying his wife's name in his report to his wife because when they married six-years ago, he agreed to be honest with her about everything and everyone. That was his first blunder. When he arrives to home from work, he wants to tell her about what happened on the way home, but senses that the wife is not in good mood. Very wise, bub. So he makes the decision to tell her when they retire for bed. Another blunder. But the wife says, uhhhh, huh! What did you do today? He replies (carefully) uhhh, well, worked hard and looked forward to seeing you, (here's his third, and most-fatal blunder) "Clare!" The wife yells, Clare, you old flame? You were thinking about her? Oh, no, he is now struggling to save what's left of his male pride. You see, baby, that I was on my way home and stopped at "The Sudden Stop Gas Mart," to get gas and this "Clare" person pulled-up, but did not see me. I guess her "awful" memory in my mind caused me to call her for your name. Average length before the wife gets over it: at least three months.

The photo in the second place is also a dumbfounded guy who has just answered a simple question that his wife asked when they met in the park. "Pete," did you spend a lot on my anniversary gift?" The man laughs for some unexplained reason. A lot? (Haw, haw, haw) are you serious? I found your anniversary gift at the local "Bring it Back Store" which I bought for three-dollars! The wife's beautiful face turns from peaceful to dangerous. Three dollars, she asks. Uhhh, errr, yes, doll-face. It normally costs $45.00 at a local department store, and I thought that you would appreciate me saving money. The poor guy will get to eat dinner in a few weeks.
Photo number three shows the photo of a sadly-dressed man who depends on the mercy of others. He is not a drunk and does not live in some dark alley. But all that I can tell you, guys, who are about to seek a job at a huge company, please, I beg of you, do not dress anything this shabby. Okay? If you do, you are really dumb and do not want the job to begin with.

Now we see a beautiful woman slowly-tasting a luscious strawberry to tease her lover. The two of them are at a nice restaurant. Both the man and woman are excited to just be with each other. What happens next is something that happens somewhere in the world every day. The beautiful woman, if she would have just took her time, she would not have burst the strawberry sending the sticky juice down her chin and down on her designer top. But being that she is a very wise woman, she grins and pretends to laugh. Those patrons who did laugh at her, stop. This proves that women are smarter than men. This casual error could have been worse, but it did not spoil the good time she and her lover had.
