~~Dingleberries & Klingons~~

Posted on: July 31, 2010

     I will leave it to your imagination to conjure up whatever it wants to after reading that title.  If your mind immediately goes to tiny little pieces of tp (or toilet paper) then we share adjoining  parking spaces in the gutter.  Of course the Klingons or Clingons could be the same thing…or that other species from Star Trek, again, take your pick.  They are both names for another kind of creature though.  One that you are more likely to run into everywhere you go.  From work, to your family, and your social circles.  These are the people who drive you nuts…unless you are one of them…..that are constantly up someone’s ass.  Either by word or deed, they are the Yes men and women.  The ones that trip over themselves to do the bidding of anyone that they think can somehow improve their lot in life.  And those are the people I’m talking about today.

     You can spot them a mile away.  Big, adoring eyes when the subject of their adoration is in the area.  Then squinty little sneaky eyes when they aren’t.  They can’t function unless it has to do with trying to please their idol.  And the idol can do no wrong. Every word that falls out of the idol’s mouth is a precious gem to be loved and believed.  It’s sickening really.  For those of us with spines. 

     You’ve seen them at work.  When the boss is looking they are the person running around like their head is cut off trying to look busy.  Keeping their eyes and ears open for anything that someone else does that they can inform on them about.  When the boss isn’t around, they are the one that gets the least done.  Always running to the bathroom, or looking for an excuse to go to the office just to be “seen” by the powers that be.  Asking if there is “this” or “that” to be done.  Volunteering for anything that gets them in the spotlight.  There is a reason that the term “brown noser” came to be.

     Then the family member that always has a crisis going on.  The one that will seize any opportunity to turn the least tragedy into something about them.  If you are not feeling well, they have pneumonia.  If you just bought a goldfish for your kid,  they have a barracuda in their bathtub at home.  They are usually the one that send out the invitations to hold affairs at their home.  Not so much because they love to entertain their family, but more because they love to brag about all the stress they are under getting things organized for the function.  You dread doing anything with them.  You avoid the calls from them because you just know it’s going to be a “whine” session.  And they are the reason “caller ID” was invented.

     The social clingons are the ones that can really make you gag.  They will usually align themselves with someone elses’ event or party.  They usually volunteer to get people to come.  And make you feel like shit if you don’t.  Or that you’re a traitor to the sponsor if you want to do something else instead of going to the scheduled event.  In the lifestyle, you will find quite a few of these types that latch on to a club or a certain group.  And they will let you know pretty quick if you “belong” or not.  They know best.  Because they belong, they are special.  And if you want to be special too; you must do everything they do.  It’s a joke. 

     I see it a lot on the lifestyle websites that I’m on too.  The webmaster will post something and then there is this gang of people who can hardly wait to post after him, telling him how wonderful he is, or that what he says is the smartest and most correct.  Good grief people.  He’s no smarter than anyone else on the site.  He was only smart enough to get your money to join.  But you must go by his rules.  Say only what he allows you to say.  It is the same with any business. You go by the owners rules. That’s the joy of business ownership.

     Being an individual is hard sometimes.  Going against the system and doing things your way can ruffle feathers sometimes.  But in the long run, if you learn to “go along to get along” you can make it through the herd of Clingons and not be one of them, AND have a good time.  At least you know that if you stop really fast, there won’t be a collision of dingleberries running up your butt !!

peace,

Cinnamon

I’m actually laughing too much to say anything intelligent…
