Two kindsa people

People love to make a mess at the slurpee machine. That's gotta be the reason for it, right? For why it always looks like a snowman exploded in a food coloring factory over there? They do it for the pure joy of it. How lovely and nice! And it has to be for that reason, because otherwise, it would be because most people are lazy, inconsiderate, self-absorbed slobs.

I've worked here at the Smelvenelven for a lotta years and I've seen a lotta shenanigans perpetrated, and as a result of having witnessed so much constant shenaniganizing, I'm pretty dadgum sure that along the way I've discovered something pretty fundamental about people.

What it comes down to is this... before anything else, before you can describe people in any other way, there's a basic thing that comes before everything else. A foundation out of which all shenanigans get pulled. You wanna know what it is? Well, I'll tell ya. So here it is.

The thing is see, is that people come in two distinct flavors - those who knock on the bathroom door, and those who just barge right in. Do you see what I'm getting at? How that says the broadest, most fundamental thing about a persons mindset, and how everything he or she does, every behavior, will be expressed with that mindset at the root? D'ya GET IT?

It's like this. There are people who's natural inclination is to consider first how their actions might affect others, and there are those who's natural inclination is to think primarily of themselves, and who need to be reminded regularly that they do, in fact, share the world with other people.
