The other day I met this person lounging like a buffalo in the swimming pool. There were kids in the pool playing ball. He yelled at them, saying, "why don't you go play in the kiddie pool?" Next there were these 3 boys, I am guessing in IX std, hunting for a penny in the pool. Who ever finds it first wins the game. The water buffalo had a problem with that and showed his concern saying, "is this a place to throw coins?" Next a guy gets into the pool. Does 2 laps before relaxing next to the buffalo's lounge. The conversation they had,
Buffalo: Why can't you get into the pool by the steps provided?
Swimmer: Because the steps are far. Plus it is fun to jump into the pool than take the steps.
Buffalo: Still. They spent money on the steps for a purpose.
The debate went on while I busied myself completing my laps.
Why does the jerk feel like he owns the pool? I am sure there are many more people like this around. Why is there a desire to control everything? Do they even realize how irritating they are?
According to Urban dictionary, control freak is a person who instinctively needs to manipulate others. Control is the motivation in any scenario. The link here talks more on them.
Looks like, even in the busy life that we live in these days, Live and let live hasn't been able to occupy its esteemed position.
