Frumpy old woman in a hat, where oh where is your cat?

Is there a way to be (brutally) honest without hurting someone's feelings? I really wish there was. I'd actually stop lying completely if that was the case. I mean, I've always been taught since childhood that lying is a sin and one should never resort to it. But now that I look back at all the creative bullshit I've blurted out to various people, I feel that I did so only to refrain from hurting them with the bitter truth. There are quite a few people who I actually hate right now and I have to be sweet to them because even though I hate them, I just cannot bear to hurt people. Not that I'm some sappy, over sensitive angel with a halo, but because I know how being hurt feels like and I also know what I think about people who have hurt me (not good things, obviously). I wouldn't want others to feel the same towards me. Hatred is like this chain reaction thing. I'd hate to be the one to trigger it off. But I have to compromise on my honesty for that. Lately when I'm putting on my best behaviour for the people I otherwise hate, I tell myself that I'm doing them a huge favour and someday they'll be thankful for it. Yeah, right.

How long is it before you get bored with your job, your city and your life in general? Is there supposed to be a specific time limit for all this? Like say for example, you can change your job every 3 years because it will definitely get boring by then or that you have to move to a new city every 5 years to ensure that monotony doesn't kick in. I dunno. We should totally do something about the rules regarding this. At this rate, I'll die of boredom. Seriously.

I am a very confused and clueless person sometimes. I just wanted to get that cleared out. Just in case if someone feels, what in the name of God is wrong with this woman, I can use the above fact as a very good excuse. I can just say that I had no idea what I was thinking. And if the defence of insanity works in the Indian Penal Code, the defence of confusion should totally work in our day to day life. I am going to have some fun with this one.

Tee hee! How I love the quirky and wonderfully weird comics at Cyanide & Happiness. You will see a lot of these on my blog for the obvious reasons. This is totally my kind of humour besides their stick figures or cartoons or what-you-may-call-it are completely cute. Me likey.
