People think they’re interesting

Posted by Sam on March 5, 2018

The blizzard on Friday is the talk of the town.

On Preston & Steve this morning, dozens of people called in speaking with a passion about how the blizzard affected them, and they all said the same thing:

“It was crazy! I drove to the turnpike but it was closed so I had to u-turn but a tree was down and a car was stuck so I had to u-turn again and the turnpike was closed!”

Every person spoke as if their story was the craziest thing that’s ever happened to anyone. And to them, it probably was.

But it goes to show how our perspective is so twisted into thinking what we experience is so much different (or perhaps more significant) than what others experience.

This is why people tell you to just keep asking questions when you’re on a first date, because people love talking about themselves.

Why do you think I started this blog?
