Thy Nature is Human

As simple as it may sound, it is after all human nature. We crib about something and call it human nature, we forget something and call it human nature, we even make mistakes that have huge consequences, and have the audacity to call it ‘human nature’.

We waste hours of our personal life cribbing about a crazy colleague, that’s human nature. We expect one treatment for ourselves but refuse to extend it to people around us, that’s human nature. We expect better salary, luxury car and bigger house for ourselves but refuse to pay the domestic help better, that’s human nature.

We want the world to keep earth clean but litter around ourselves, that’s human nature. We want our neighbours to potty-train their pets but fail to train our own pets, that’s human nature. We curse people who spit on the road but do it ourselves, that’s human nature.

We expect our children to be well behaved but swear oaths ourselves, that’s human nature. We tell them that smoking kills while blowing smoke on their face, that’s human nature. We expect our partner to be a teetotaller while we drink, smoke and dope, that’s human nature. We expect a virgin for a spouse while we sleep around, that’s human nature.

We don’t mind a single act of our parents but when it comes to ‘in-laws’ everything becomes different, that’s human nature. We call our friends on their birthday and forget to wish them just because we desperately want to crib about a colleague, that’s human nature.

Me writing this whole piece mocking human nature; THAT is Human Nature.
