I remember this snippet from a movie where the restaurant owner had live crabs in a tank and the customer would select the one they want to be cooked from the selection. This lady saw the crab which looked a lot like this one and asked the owner, “ is it fresh?” The man was puzzled and replied that it was still alive. The woman wasn’t satisfied with his answer and again asked if it was a fresh crab?
What does one reply to stupid questions?
It’s easy to crab about everything and anything. Things that are not in our control when irritate us, we complain and rant. But we never think from the point of view of the other side. I remember once I complained about the attitude of someone in public dealing. One person, who had personal experience of that position, explained to me why the person may be behaving in that manner and what sort of challenges they may be facing.
So if we cannot be a part of the solution, we shouldn’t be a part of the problem.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rather fearsome little crab with pretty big claws, making his way along some white stones.
