Blog Post #37: The Truth About People

Posted on

Well, “All Quiet On The Western Front” is over, and I have begun reading “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas.

Yo he empezado a leer “The Count of Monte Cristo” de Alexandre Dumas.

Sorry, we started learning the present indicative form in Spanish and I can’t stop saying everything in Spanish in my head. But hey, you learned something today!

Anyway, I’m way past this part, but I keep remembering this line in Chapter 2.

“‘Let’s go, then,’ said Caderousse. ‘But you’ll pay for the wine, won’t you?'”

And I can’t stop thinking about the nature of these types of people. The situation surrounding this line is Caderousse and Danglars following Dantes around, watching for his relationship to crumble.

I think a lot of people have this thing, or a friend, or maybe just know of a person who is really manipulative or hard to please or something like that, but they still have friends. And you kinda just wonder why?

But if any of you personally know someone like this, it’s also kinda cool because this person who doesn’t really like anyone, likes you. And that’s a really good feeling. But it’s hard to tell if they really like you, or, like Leo says, they just want something from you.

And you can see that with Caderousse. He doesn’t like Dantes, but does he really like Danglars either? He’s only gonna hang out with Danglars if everything’s on his money.

And so, my advice is, if someone is mean to other people; if someone thinks that everything depends on their own happiness and stops even the rotation of earth to get what they want: DON’T BE FRIENDS WITH THEM! It will take not even a planck for them to drop you, if that is what they so desire.

Find people who like to make others happy, and you’ll never have to worry about proving yourself or doing things against your own will.

And no matter how cliche and completely redundant Joey’s speech is, it’s true. So keep it in mind and make good friends!

PS: Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone!

    The little hints of Spanish and Chem (and then of course the gifs) in this post made me smile. 🙂
