Have you ever wondered why two people are together? You know, you are there looking on wondering what they could possibly see in the other?
Bring in Mr Jerk or as the Mirror calls him…Derek Deso.
Mr Deso recently performed what could only be described as one of the cruelest pranks on his partner that I have seen in a LONG time. This guy decides that it would be funny for him to sneak into his girlfriend’s place and, you know, drop a couple of large pythons on her while she is FAST ASLEEP.
YouTube user Derek Deso orchestrated the stunt with friends who caught the nasty surprise on camera.
They begin slither over her legs but she takes a little while to wake up.
“Baby, don’t move. There’s two ginormous snakes on your butt!” Derek says.
She begins screaming and ordering them to remove the snakes, unable to move as they slither over her body. Indeed she was EXTREMELY distressed. Hell, she continues to scream after the creatures have been peeled from her body.
Towards the end, she appears out of breath as Deso tries to come over and talk to her – but she firmly rejects him. If he wasn’t dumped, I’d be amazed. But seriously, this shows just what exactly this YouTube generation has become. And I’m not saying that it’s all bad. I love catching up on America’s events via the media provider as well as catching clips of shows such as The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and the Colbert Report. But YouTube provides people with the opportunity to make a name for themselves by any means necessary and this includes ridiculous pranks like this one. Perhaps the people filming these pranks aren’t necessarily completely cruel deep down but everyone is after making an easy buck and they will happily exploit their friends, family and even strangers to do so. Why else would you get crazes like the killer clown craze that has swept the globe. It’s quite sad really. I feel for this poor girl. As someone who isn’t a lover of snakes, this would be my idea of hell. And for someone who supposedly loves you to do what he did was kind of unforgivable. At least I think so. What do you think?
So I’m lying here on my bed following my daily perusal of WordPress and I’m thinking that some people really have very bad attitudes. I’m not just referring to the people that think they are “gangsta” either though I’ll never get why speaking like you have the mental age of an 8 year old when you are 20 is something to proud. I kid of course, yo peeps be bangin’ fo reel.
Anyway, so here I am reading through and part of me wonders about how many people are just talk and how many of these people mean what they say. Or if they mean it, would they say it should they be brought up on it in the flesh. Now to be clear, I’m not making a pop at the mentally ill or the lonely people. I know you lot have it hard, trust me I can relate. But I do wonder about those who spend their time putting down other people or those who continuously blow smoke up their arses. It’s like, you want to know why you are single? Maybe it’s because you treat each person you meet with contempt. Now I’m not saying that every person on the planet is Barrack Obama type of cool. They aren’t. Sadly. But just because people aren’t eloquent in how they put themselves forwards or fashionable, doesn’t make them people without emotions or feeling. If you tell a guy who approaches you that he’s a joke or you make fun of him, it might make you feel good but it’s pretty hard on them. Remember, every time someone puts themselves out there, by whatever means, they are really putting themselves on the line. They deserve at the least, in the most part, with some dignity and respect. I think to myself, how would I feel if someone wrote about my attempt to get to know someone on WordPress, Facebook or Twitter. Honestly, I’d feel humiliated. And no, I’m not saying that I’ve ever been a creep but if someone called me a joke or that my attempt was a joke or that I dressed badly or whatever, I would hurt. Maybe I have too thin a skin? Possibly. I just think it’s unfair.
But back to my point, it’s funny but people have this attitude that they are owed everything instaneously and they can treat people in whatever way they like in the process. Any attempt to garner their attention is sized up and the responses can be cold or brutal. These people will come out and say things like “I prefer to be brutally honest”. Yet I see brutal honesty often as a reason to be just be mean in a justifiable way. Half the time, I think they should ask themselves, how would you feel if you were treated the same way? I’m sure they BS their way out of it by saying they’d be fine or that it wouldn’t happen to them but you know it would burn more than they’d prefer to admit.
It saddens me though that people act in such a way. There is definitely a lack of respect that people have for each other. I don’t quite know why but it’s really not flattering. At times like this, part of me is glad that I’m alone if the alternative is being with someone so egomaniacal.
