Stuck in traffic on Friday, listening to the radio, the talk turned to Arnie’s new movie. After his recent conduct, I’m not a fan. I enjoyed the bashing he got from the 2 hosts. The plot sounded okay, and I might watch had they cast Clint Eastwood in place of Schwarzenegger.
I stopped watching 2.5 men after the spectacle Charlie Sheen made of himself. The media thrives on this debauchery and crap. Why do people still adore them, and support their careers? The worse they are, the more ubiquitous they become, and the media laps it up. Mostly, I hate the news, yet it makes me wonder about disrespect in general.
Do rude people get further in their careers? Do they seem more authoritative than polite people? More convincing? Obnoxious people draw more attention to themselves and it often seems to work in their favor. Why?
Recently, I heard someone say you get more out of people who fear you. Is this true? I think it’s bullshit. I despise rude, obnoxious people. I stop supporting anyone who behaves this way, even if I enjoy their product. I’m curious as to why some still embrace what they do. How do you feel about it?
