When you are Here Now what happened ten, twenty years ago isn’t necessary conversation with virtual strangers. You are aware of yourself, of others, and alert to their moods and attitudes. You hear conversations and ‘notate’ them.
And you become aware of Wack Jobs.
There are people who virtually walk down the road with a sign over their heads…
“I was a foster child!”
“I was raped by my uncle!”
“I went to prison for ten years!”
This is because they are looking for pity or simply an ear to fill with their lament.
In reality, no one, unless paid to listen, cares.
No one cares because these people aren’t figures of pity, these are Must Avoids.
