Stop accepting mistreatment

22 Feb

I’ve mentioned before that I highly doubt the ‘reality’ of reality tv, but however little actual reality is in the tv show, there’s often still value to take from the stories as they’re shown anyway. Like in this video…

OK, so let’s ignore the fact that nobody in this video was surprised that there happened to be camera crews all over the place and that Mr Ring Seller acted like he was trying to get away with something despite the fact that he would obviously have seen at least two cameraman filming him and the lady at the counter. Let’s pretend this is actually real and see what we can get out of it.

There’s obviously a lot of wrong going on. For starters, the guy trying to pawn his girlfriend’s ring seems like a real scumbag, the fact that he’s trying to pawn his girlfriend’s ring certainly serves as evidence of his scumbaggery. The reason he’s trying to pawn it, to get motorcycle parts, is further evidence that he’s a pretty shitty dude because, y’know paying for food or covering rent, or paying for urgent medical treatment are really the only remotely excusable reasons for pawning someone else’s stuff.

Then we’ve got his girlfriend who clearly suspects her boyfriend of being a shady motherfucker and isn’t all that surprised that he’s pawning her ring. She is somewhat surprised that he’s pawning it for parts for his bike, but whatever. So the girlfriend decides to let her boyfriend know that she doesn’t like his behaviour by slapping him in the face in the middle of a crowded shop.

That’s not enough for her though. As he continues to reinforce how much of a scumbag he is by not owning up to what he was actually doing, she punches him square in the face. Right there in the middle of a shop, apparently with camera crews roaming all over the place, this angry little woman decides the best course of action in regards to catching her boyfriend trying to pawn her ring is to punch him directly in the face.

I’ve written before about why you should never hit a man. I rank hitting a guy as crazy bitch behaviour because nothing good can come from it. All it does is escalate a situation into violence, which is a terrible idea. Strangely enough though, I don’t think that the girlfriend hitting the boyfriend is the craziest part of this video.

The craziest part to me, is that she says: “Come on. Let’s go.” to him at the end. What the fuck? This guy just stole her jewellery to pawn it for parts for his motorcycle and he’s clearly been such a shitbag to her so many times that she resorts to physical assault as a means of communicating her dissatisfaction with him this time! How the hell is this “relationship” going to end up in anything but a shitty breakup somewhere down the track?

Any woman who has self respect and was thinking clearly would have left his arse there and never spoken to him again. Yep, hitting him was a crazy bitch manoeuvre, but that’s way less crazy than staying with a scumbag who treats you like shit.

So the moral of this story is to stop accepting mistreatment by scumbag, dickhead, douchebags. The more time you spend with people like this, the more likely you are to accept their shitty behaviour as if it’s just how they are and find a way to put up with it. DO NOT PUT UP WITH IT! You’re better off single than being with a scumbag who makes you feel bad about yourself and tries to get away with doing bullshit behind your back.

Crazy bitch tip: Give people one chance, if they fuck you over, fuck them off.
