I've come to the conclusion that miserable people are really difficult to like. You know the kind that nothing makes them happy, ever? Geesh that's hard to be around.
Its even harder to be around MEAN & miserable people. That is a deadly combination to me. I'm not kidding when I say mean people suck. Mean people really, really do suck. Pot-stirrers, nasty thinkers, back-stabbers, hateful, and vile phony-baloneys are the worst of the mean people.
When oh, say, you trust someone and they stab you in the back, that person sucks.
Well, mean, miserable people suck but...their actions and characteristics do make captivating characters, now don't they? We humans sure do love drama and tension in our novels & movies & gossip. Without the mean, jerky characters we'd be left with Barney and rainbows.
Imagine a world that cruelly hawked Star Wars without Darth, or Harry without Voldemort, or Jeannette Walls (The Glass Castle) without her idiot parents, or Jack & Rose without Cal, or Austin without Dr. Evil...
I don't want to live in that world. No way.
But, REAL mean people still totally and completely suck, rotten eggs.
