What bothers you and why?

Greetings readers! I think ignorance in today’s information based society bothers me more than anything. I feel like there really is no excuse for being ignorant these days with so much information at one’s fingers. We should be heading towards an unprecedented era of peace and prosperity, but that is very much in doubt due to widespread ignorance.

People who do not tip bother the heck out of me. I worked as a waiter for seven years and I relied upon tips to make a living. Tipping is such a great way to show another human being compassion. People do not like tipping cashiers now because sometimes they are asked for a tip at the end of a transaction, but being a cashier is rough. Anyone that has done that type of work knows it is a grind. You are on your feet all day, dealing with people, most of whom are nice, but some are going to be complete jerks and make you want to quit your job. Trying to keep a smile on through an untold number of very brief social interactions each day can be soul stealing. Leaving a dollar tip really is really not a big deal.

Entitled people bother me, people that feel like the world owes them something because of their high and mighty status. In my experience there are two kinds of wealthy people (and of course this is subjective), one is the generous wealthy person who gives generously and does not feel they are above everyone else, the other the entitled wealthy person who feels that the world owes them more. The former is a boon to the community and humanity in general, the latter not so much.

Anyway, just some thoughts on what bothers me. What bothers you? How do you feel about tipping? How do you feel about entitled people? Opine below!

Tipping is such a great way to show another human being compassion.

Ten Things I Know For Certain

Additional Content: I thought it would be interesting to see how my list of complaints compares with Chat GPT, peruse at your leisure!

Ten Things that bother Chat GPT:

  1. Lack of Real Emotion: Chat GPT lacks genuine emotions or empathy, making it challenging to provide emotional support or understand complex emotional contexts.
  2. Misunderstanding Context: Sometimes, Chat GPT can misinterpret user inputs, leading to irrelevant or inaccurate responses.
  3. Lack of Critical Thinking: AI models like Chat GPT don’t possess true comprehension or critical thinking abilities, which might result in nonsensical or illogical answers.
  4. Sensitivity to Input Wording: Slight changes in phrasing can significantly affect responses, leading to inconsistency.
  5. Inability to Learn from Experience: Unlike humans, Chat GPT cannot learn from past interactions or improve over time based on experience.
  6. Bias and Fairness Issues: AI models can unintentionally replicate biases present in the training data, leading to unfair or discriminatory responses.
  7. Limited World Knowledge: My knowledge is confined to the data available up to September 2021, and I may not be aware of events or developments that occurred after that date.
  8. Dependency on Training Data Quality: The quality of responses largely depends on the quality and diversity of the data used to train the model.
  9. Lack of Physical Presence: Being an AI, I can’t physically interact with the world, which may limit certain applications.
  10. Potential Ethical Concerns: The use of AI in certain scenarios may raise ethical questions about privacy, consent, and the impact on human labor.


Chat GPT and I have some of the same concerns and difficulties with bias and interacting with the world. Who would of thought?
