What happens to people you throw away in life?
Someone picks them up and recycles them.
I think they become Oscar Meyer wieners.
Why do you ask?
I have never thrown anyone away.
People who get thrown away young become homeless teens. Hookers, drug addicts and thieves.
Throw Away? I can't say that I've ever done that per se. I have outgrown friendships with some men and women or maybe they outgrew me. Who knows?
Though I have sort of kept track of a few of them over the years and it seems they usually go on to be happily married, with smart, beautiful children and fabulously wealthy.
I don't throw away people.
People I know are not disposable.
Sometimes they get broken
Has someone you love tossed you to the side? I've never thrown anyone away.
I try to never do that.
I like to keep up with the people I've met over the years.
Mem,thats simply not true. It may be for some, but not everyone.
I've been tossed aside in the past. I grew from the lesson I learned. It enabled me to love, and encourage the wounded people I encountered.
I don't think I've "thrown anyone away" but I have drifted apart from people, or in some cases, they stabbed me in the back and I wouldn't have anything to do with them anymore (more like they threw ME away...)
Usually the only people I know what has happened with are some of my relatives and people I went to elementary school with. Strangely, of my elementary school class, all but 3 of the girls were married by the age of 19. And the 3 who were not married by age 19 all have not ever been married to this day.
Are they all lesbians?
Well, I am one of them and I know I'm not a lesbian. :biggrin1: Can't speak for the other two. I've heard that one of them is, but people could just be saying that because she was always a tomboy (like I was), and grew up still a tomboy in looks and actions (whereas I am still a tomboy in interests/actions often, but not in looks). The other is agoraphobic and last I heard has never left her parents' house, has never had a date, and has never had a job.
They become a distant memory and a lesson learn't for you as you do for them.
And they move to Alaska and occasionally hell
They come back to bite you in the ass.
I assume they go online somewhere and start creating inane threads.
And no, I'm not referring to this one, elj.
My watch stopped working today and I went to get a battery for it but the watch repair guy found it was broken. He said just throw it away. "I can't fix Swatches - they're disposable." I really liked my ultra thin Swatch, I had grown accustomed to it like it like it was part of my body. 6 years, 5 batteries, and 4 wrist bands later it's going to some landfill.
It got me thinking that throwing things away is our culture's way of solving problems. Don't bother fixing anything, throw it away and just get a new one - and it seems like that attitude creeps into how we view other people in our world. Everything from prisoner rehabilitation, ex-spouses, drug addicts, alcoholics, homeless people, high school drop outs, blackballing employees, we rather just throw these people away and just forget about them like collections of garbage landfills. Sure there are government programs to help the marginalized but as a whole most people have very little patience or tolerance for people they consider garbage. The idea that things can be fixed and returned to better than new condition is an alien concept these days.
People even throw away shoes when they go dull now instead of polishing them. Is the way we treat our belongings indicative of how we treat and view the people around us?
That is so sad.!
