A strange lesson learned from Donald Trump.."JUST, SHUT THE F**K UP"!!!

...I have a good friend that said something yesterday that hurt me a whole lot. What it was is not
important, but I have known this friend for many years. This morning I realized how she hurt
me, and I wanted to get on the phone and give her a piece of my mind. So, as I got ready to call
this gal, (who deep down is a wonderful and kind person, who really wouldn't hurt anyone) I thought
to myself, "Do I need to do this right now?" Can calling her wait? Think it over Stuart, and try to
relax. Is it worth starting the day with a hostile conversation with someone who I deeply care about.?
I thought about it some more. Trump would say whatever needs to be said, RIGHT NOW!!

...Just maybe, this can wait. It is Saturday, and this gal works very hard during the week in a very
difficult job (social worker), so can this wait? I thought some more....Yes, this can indeed wait, and
I need to think this one over more. I came to the conclusion that this conversation does NOT NEED TO
BE MADE RIGHT NOW, AND I CAN WAIT. ...Yes, I thought about Trump yelling out whatever he wants to say, and whenever he wants.. ALL THETIME.......

...Perhaps, this can be dealt with in another way, not getting mad and telling her off right now. Yes, it can wait, and think about this later in the day. This whole event will not change anything between two people, and waiting can serve a purpose: "Relax and think it over, ..do not destroy this friendship on a Saturday.
.......................... Do not destroy this friendship at all...........................................

...Maybe there is another way to deal with this issue." Do not put out a "Donald Trump."
...........AND, for this moment just...."SHUT THE F**K UP."

...Yes, I am a slow learner, but I did learn something from Trump: "There are times to shout out, and
................................."TIMES TO SHUT UP."................................ .
.....................This is a time to: "SHUT THE F**K UP, AND WAIT."......................................

...There are often many ways to solve an issue, and going off and screaming and yelling at someone is
usually NOT the best way..........................................................................
....................example: DONALD TRUMP ALL THE TIME!!!!

..Perhaps this is the best I can do at 10am Central Time on a Saturday.."SHUT THE F**K UP."
...Wait a while..... ...Take it easy and relax.....Think about this later, and that's OK!!!!

1. I see this a lot in elderly relatives......

The instinct to just blurt out whatever is on their mind without social filters. It could be anything from a crass comment on appearance to who you date or what kind of job you have.

Race, hate, family conflicts - it all falls right out there.

Your strategy is a good one.

2. Imagine if Trump waited just half of the time to speak out. Or just a half an hour.

Now, I think he has been told to wait, but he thinks he knows everything and never waits for no one.
All it proves: Is that Donald Trump knows nothing at all.

3. what is striking is that....

Just about every one who has ever known him and has been willing to speak out - from teachers to employees to associates to family - say he is just stupid.

No sugar coating here. They aren't saying he is book dumb - meaning uneducated. They are saying he doesn't have the intellectual capacity to think on the level of a normal person. Not only is he dumb as a rock, he is uninterested in learning.

And then you add on his clear mental illnesses, and all you have is an ignorant, stupid, crazy person - in charge of the free world.

4. 5 Key Words from your post: "...he is uninterested in learning."

Think about it: A person who somehow gets into the office of: "President of the United States..."
and is totally ...."uninterested in learning".....

7. If he learns

he disappears. His entire being at this point exists only if he is the only one that knows and matters.

5. Sometimes the appropriate expression

Snowy slippery day. Trying to stay on the road. Wife giving unsolicited advice. I said "shut the F up!"
She got a little mad. A winter or two later, she was driving in the same conditions. Her mother sitting beside her giving unsolicited advice.
Funny thing, she made the same comment. Said she understood why I said it the first time.

6. I believe what you just did is called

being an adult. It requires learning a lot of people skills and actually caring enough to apply them. It also requires you to not see yourself as always the best person in the world.

Good for you. I had never thought of Trump in quite that way, analyzing it like that is interesting. I have a few men like that in my family. I long ago wrote them off as assholes and did not bother to wonder anymore than wonder why they could not act like adults and why anyone would put up with them.

Interesting and thank you. Your friend is lucky. You may find you get an apology before you even contact her again.

8. You've probably made a good decision. And as I have found in my own experience, an

opportunity will come to you to wreak vengeance upon this person. Use it wisely.
