So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
…you know. Just when I start to lose faith in humanity….Hm.
and by now I thought I’d be used to it.
And to a certain degree, I am.
I honestly don’t even know why I bother
to try and be so pleasing when I’ve already lived the outcome.
You never fail to disappoint me.
You never fail to misunderstand me.
You never fail to add that weight I already carry.
It’s so funny how they say that change is the only constant.
But I guess that doesn’t apply to most people…
and you’re one of them.

that last one though

New York psychologist, Professor Arthur Aron, has been studying why people fall in love.
He asked his subjects to carry out the above 3 steps and found that many of his couples felt deeply attracted after the 34 minute experiment. Two of his subjects later got married.
