Part of the narcissist pathology, sometimes, is an Simpson can’t someone else just do it shirt blinding element where they cannot see anything wrong with what they do. Even if you told them they are a narcissist, they might put this blame back on you and say “How dare you judge me. I know this sounds very undemocratic (and I am very Democratic) , but that’s how I feel. BUT I also feel that you can’t discuss minimum wages without discussing the cost of housing, the cost of food, the cost of education and the cost of health care. It’s not a discussion that exists in a vacuum. It never has. Small businesses are the backbone of this country. They give it character, they carry on the traditions that make us great. Many small businesses cannot afford to double their staff’s wages, especially now when so many of us are struggling to just survive. My 6 year old, rambunctious middle daughter had broken her collar bone in a bicycle accident the previous weekend and was in a sling.
The school called because she had been kicked in the head while playing on the monkey bars during recess. There is only one person I know who would play on monkey bars while wearing a sling but I don’t know why the teachers did not stop her. That time, I was not paying attention and the cashier was not paying attention, and the cashier didn’t actually hand me the money. I was back in my chair by the time it occurred to me, but it hadn’t been long and I wasn’t far away, so I headed on back. With a manager watching, they closed down the checkstand and manually counted the entire till, and sure enough, it was high by the missing $70. Again, it took awhile, but they sorted it out.
