Why is it always that guy?
There is a scene on the programme Boston
Legal, where Alan Shore bursts into a Partner's
meeting as they're about to vote onwhether Brad
Chase should be become partner.
Alan Shore was incensed that his friend Jerry
Espenson wasn't put up for the position, he
looked up to the podium and saw a
cut out of Brad's smiling face, looked at the
partners and says something along the
lines of "Does it always have to be that guy?"
That got me thinking, Why is it always that guy?
In every aspect of life, it's always that guy.
It's always that guy who goes to a restaurant,
and gets the best table, and gets the best
service, and the best piece of steak.
It's always that guy who goes to a store in the mall, he
will get served first, he wont get a smart alec
shop assistant, he will get the best customer
Coming back from an overseas trip, that guy will fly
thru customs and not get picked for a routine bag
Buying Panadol from the chemist,that guy wont get asked for
ID, or the name of his G.P
Getting picked first for a team, whether it be as a
kid on the sports field, a class room assignment,
a project at work, or on some lame reality
tv show, it's always that guy.
A group of friends having a discussion,
people will listen to that guy first.
If different advice is handed out to
someone in trouble, it's that guys
advice they will take.
Your on a social media site, or at a dinner
party, it's always that guy's jokes that people
will laugh the hardest at.
If that guy's got the slightest problem in his life
he will have a army of people, giving him
sympathy and telling him he's special, and every
issue in his life, is blown into a war and peace novel.
Heaven help you, if you don't like that guy, because I'm
afraid in life, it's all about him.
That guy doesn't even have any negative syndrome
name after him, if your short, you have short guy syndrome,
if your fat, you have fat guy syndrome, if your ugly you
have ugly guy syndrome, if you write a negative blog you
have bitter guy syndrome, if you complain about that guy
you have jealous guy syndrome, according to
another blogger there is a "privilege denying guy", and
of course there is "nice guy syndrome", they are the
worst guys of the lot apparently, but that Guy doesn't
have a negative syndrome, because he is that guy.
Can someone please please tell me, why does it always have
to be that guy, or about that guy? Why is it always him?, he does
nothing special, others do better, but its always him, isn't it?
Like I said this post was written from seeing an old Boston
Legal clip, and a couple of incidents that went thru my
head after seeing that Boston legal clip. I have never figured
it out, why it always have to be about that guy, like I said in
a previous post, this post is not earth shattering, it's not
powerful and has no overbearing message, I just need to
know, why is it always about that guy, and why is it always
Can someone tell me?
In a couple of days time, I will write about the other guy.
He deserves some thinking about to, I'm guessing that
guy will disagree.
