Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Okay, I know Valentine's Day is over, but still, I'd like to bitch about certain things people have said concerning relationships, emotions and people. Since I gave such a long love story of myself which was very "optimistic" in a way, I thought I'd be cynical today. Ha!
I'm not pissed off, I'm not angry. I'm quite cheerful today actually. It's just, I'm in a mood to, well, bitch =/. Lmao. I mean, some things I hear are so ridiculous that I really wonder how people actually believe it or proclaim it.
So, here's my list!
1) Everyday should be Valentine's Day.
Let's start with this, considering Valentine's Day passed recently. As a classic this is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard, even if it sounds very politically correct. Everyday Valentine's Day? Are you sure? Days have special meanings because we give them meanings. Christmas is special because we made it so.
A very surprising amount of people don't know that Christmas isn't the day of Jesus' birth. It's just the day chosen to Christianize certain countries to commemorate His birth. And how about Merdeka Day? August 31 is only special to Malaysia, it's no big deal to other countries. It has special meaning because the country was born on this day. Because people gave special meaning to it.
Valentine's is special because we give meaning to it for relationships, aside from anniversary dates. It's the day we pay more attention to our other half, and buy chocolates, cards, gifts, gigantic teddy bears and a lot of other lovey dovey stuff. So you say everyday should be Valentine's Day? Okay, EVERY SINGLE DAY, buy your loved ones a new stuffed toy, buy some chocolates everyday, buy a card everyday and go out together for a cozy meal every single day. See if you can pay the bills at the end of the month. And see if they don't get sick of seeing you 24/7 too. Oh, and if a family member dies, don't forget, you should be celebrating Valentine's Day!
Idiots! They don't really think when they say everyday should be Valentine's do they?!
2) "I love walking in the rain because no one knows I'm crying"
This is sounds like quite a touching (and extremely stupid) line. You like walking in the rain because no one knows you're crying. Right... you'll just need to wait for the rain to come, then only you'll cry. You can control your tears or something? (And good luck if you live some place where it only snows), and if its monsoon season, you're in luck!
Why don't you go cry in your room when the house is empty? I'm sure it'll happen before the rain comes. No one will know too. And you can have a box of tissues too! If you're crying in the rain, you'll be wiping your eyes in the rain and make it obvious that you're being a crybaby. No one repeatedly wipes their eyes in the rain -.-.
And you know what? Putting this quote means you want others to know you're crying anyway. Don't act like a humble guy when you just want attention. If you really wanted to cry with no one knowing, you wouldn't put this up at all.
3) Leopards never change their spots.
Ah, another classic. Leopards never change their spots. That's very true. Just like tigers can't change their stripes. Just like oranges will always be orange in colour.
I'm aware that many people change. And many people don't. But that's people, and its their attitude. They can choose to change it if they want. Leopards are forced to stick with their spots, and it doesn't make one damn difference to their "attitudes" or whatever's the equivalent.
But a lot of idiots apply this line to humans. When did leopards equate to humans? I have hands, not paws. I don't have pointy ears. I don't have retractable claws. And I most certainly don't have a tail, and go "roar".
What the hell?
4) Let it go. If it was meant for you, it will come back.
Oh, this is so, so, so idiotic. Back when Friendster was the new Facebook, there was a bulletin section where you could post up stuff for all your contacts to read. And a lot of them had those "pass this on" kinda stories. Most were stupid and lame. And a very large number, I remember, posted up a few variations of stories that had that quote of "let it go...", usually involving a butterfly or something.
Now, it sounds so touching, and its got like "Oh yeah that's so true" feeling to it. YA think?! No way! How about this as an example. Your hard earned money for the month. You're an honest guy, you do your work well, and never cheat or lie. You get your pay for the month, and throw it into the wind. If it's yours, it'll come back right?
Somehow, I really, really doubt it.
Or what about your girlfriend? How about this, put no effort into the relationship whatsoever, ignore her, you dump her, and let her go. Let any guy chase her, and never do anything. Sooner or later, she'll come back to you right? If it doesn't work, then it means that you were never meant to be together!
And the best fun is you can do it again and again, 'til you find the correct one! Then you'll know she's the correct one!
Seriously, tough luck on finding the correct one if you believe in that crap. And even if you do, it's most probably a bimbo who's attracted to abusive men. Nevermind! It was meant to be right?
