People and Glass Houses
You’ve heard the saying that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
Why would you live in a glass house, to begin with? It seems to me if you choose to live in a glass house, your decision-making capabilities are already in question.
Do you know how hard it is to insure a house that’s made of glass? Of course, you don’t–you’re not foolish enough to live in a glass house.
I’ll tell you: It’s ridiculously hard to insure a house that’s made of glass; all it takes is one snot-nosed neighbor kid with a slingshot to cause catastrophic damage.
And you can find stones anywhere; they’re literally just lying around.
And throwing stones aside, if you live in a glass house, you shouldn’t be engaging in any activity of questionable behavior; everyone can see what you’re doing.
Those slack-jawed neighbors living across the street, sitting on their front porch all day, smoking cigarettes and gaping vacuously in your direction, already seem to know everything about you. Just imagine if you lived in a glass house.
What kind of weird and disgusting behavior do you think those people have going on in their house? You don’t know because they don’t live in a glass house.
What a stupid saying.
