Why Nobody Cares What You Think (And What You Can Do About It)

Why Nobody Cares What You Think (And What You Can Do About It):
Electro-CollarLet me start off by stipulating that I am TOTALLY in your corner, homes. I completely feel your pain, the frustration of having to repeat even the simplest proposition over and over and over (and over) again and just not being heard. It’s a real cross to bear, no?
But we can’t just drop it because some lunkhead refuses to see sense. We’ve got a point here, and even if we personally are not inclined to waste our time on trying to educate some feeble-minded half-wit, the integrity of our position is at stake. It’s not like we can just abandon ship in midstream here. Not without seeming to concede our point to some feckless, illiterate buffoon, anyhow.
I’m sure that’s what most of the problem is here. These people just don’t have the smarts or technical background or personal experience to see things our way. After all, they say, “No sense, no feeling.” That HAS to be why they seem to absorb round after round of our impeccably crafted logical salvos and still keep coming back parroting the same tired old chestnuts in response, as if they hadn’t heard a think we’ve said.
Not that this is very comforting or useful. I’m sorry.
Yet maybe there is another way around this thing. I’ve toyed around with this notion for a while, and it’s still sort of germinating, but this is probably as good a time as any to bring it up. In fact, this may be the PERFECT time to bring this up—cross-pollination of our ideas could just beef this thing up into something workable.  Something that can take leg and really get the show back on the road, if you know what I mean.
What we need to do is streamline the process—not waste another decade of our lives trying to educate willfully ignorant morons on how to work the existing process. The undeniable fact is that, whether through malice of incompetence, they’ve never been productive members nor will they ever be. Not that we really need them to.  Because, as I’ve let on, there IS another way around this problem.
What am I talking about? Choke points, me dear boy, choke points.
