I Don't Care (insert Big Jesus hands here)

I'm pretty sure that whoever built the Christ the Redeemer statute in Rio de Janeiro didn't expect me to daily state "I don't care (Big Jesus)". For some reason whenever I say that I don't care, I put my hands out just like the Big Jesus statue. When I really don't care I emphasize each word by gesturing with my Big Jesus hands.

Although this sounds funny, it very rarely is. Let's talk about all of the things I don't care about.

I don't care about excuses. There is a difference between an excuse and an explanation. When you give an explanation you take responsibility. When you give an excuse you just try to justify why you didn't complete your task or did something wrong. I hate excuses. I have fired vendors for offering excuses rather than solutions. I've dated/married men that had an excuse for everything. They got fired too. I think that when I was writing my pet peeve blog in September, excuses probably should have made list.

I also don't care if someone the told something different then what I'm telling you right now. If I'm giving you direction, or asking you to do something I don't care if you've been told something someone else at some other time. I'm telling you to do it now. I don't want to be questioned, second guessed, or argued with. If you feel the need to do any of those things come me in private or do what I say and tell me "I told you so" later. Unless you are my child, then just do it!  If you think you have a better way to do it.  Try it my way first. Otherwise I don't care.

I don't care if you feel like your too busy. We're all too busy. No one working 40 plus hours a week, taking care a family of any kind, even if it's just a cat, and still trying to have some sort of a social life doesn't feel like they're too busy. Please don't use this as an excuse. Because I don't care.

I don't care about a lot of other things. I don't care if you can't pay your rent. It's due every month on the same day. Plan better.

I don't care if you don't think you should have to pay for your carport or garage. If you use it pay for it. If not I'll rent it to someone who will.

I don't care if you were told by someone else that you had 24 hours change your mind about living in your apartment. You don't. You should have thought about that before we both signed a legal binding document.

I don't care if you think I should drink less coffee. I don't care if you think I should quit smoking. I don't care if think i drink too much wine. I don't care if you agree with my life choices. I don't care if you don't like me. I don't care if you think I'm a bitch.

Most of all I don't care if my "I don't care attitude" offends you. A good person can only be pushed so far before they don't give a Fuck anymore and guess what? I haven't been anything but pushed for the past 40 days. Push me again. My standard response "I don't care (Big Jesus)".
