I used to run around singing the mantra that people are inherently evil, not inherently good. My friends and family were always quick to argue of course, a statement like that is an easy target. But, ya know, I stand by the quip. However, let’s switch “evil” with selfish and “good” with giving — which is more or less the same thing just without the connotation of fangs.

Even when folks *think* they are acting selflessly, doing something for you, about you, to you, at the end of the day, it’s really all about them. Who are we kidding? Do we not give gifts simply because the gesture pleases us? Lend someone an inch of your ear and they’ll take a mile of your time. And how ’bout that ego boost when someone leans on you in their time of trial? Makes you stand a little prouder, a little smugger. El numero uno. Animal instinct. Survival of the fittest. Grrroowwwlll.

Sadly, when I feel hurt by selfish behavior, I go into social hibernation. Screw you guys, I’m goin’ home. I’m gonna have me-time, me-time and more me-time. So there. Hmmmm. Speaking of selfish…
