So here’s a little story before we get to the music. The other day I had the misfortune of rear-ending a woman in her Mercedes. I’d literally just come from having my car detailed and polished. I was pretty bummed to say the least. The lady however made me a gracious offer, she said “give me $500, we’ll call it square and we don’t have to go through the hassle of insurance, etc.” I thought, wow, this is a really nice thing she’s doing, and I was pretty relieved. Flash forward to an hour later, her husband must have yelled at her and she was now calling me and asking me for $1000. Her husband even got on the phone and tried to bully me about it and demand more money, all of which was a very upsetting experience.
So I’d gone from having my faith in humanity boosted, to then reverting to disgust and resignation to the fact that people are inherently selfish and out for themselves. In the end though, it’s all just money, and the most important thing is to take a deep breath and realize, that’s not important. So I’m going to get my $500 back and go through insurance and deal with it all that way. It’s a pain in the butt, however, I’ve got good music to take my mind off of it, and good friends to remind me that while some people are dishonest and low, others are not.
