Petty Bastard

Episode 291

You might think we as a society have become more petty about everything. Truth is, we are just as petty now as we have always been. So, what makes it seem like we are more nuanced about life’s little ridiculous situations? Social media. The one thing Facebook does extraordinarily well is magnify every little thing and feeling people get from time to time. The rest of us may merely roll our eyes at these posts but for the one making that post, they are deadly serious. It’s kind of like when people ask for unspoken prayers. What they are actually asking for is a little bit of attention. In this episode, Ric gets petty himself as he looks into the hypocrisy of the human condition through the eyes of social media.
