The Abnormality of Honesty
If we are attentive to everyday language, can be very interesting to analyze what we verbalize.
I’ve bought a perfume on a website in December. By the midst of January as it didn’t arrived I’ve contacted the seller and asked about it. The seller immediately refunded my money. Meanwhile the perfume arrive two weeks after that. Consequently I’ve contacted the seller and repaid the perfume.
And the seller wrote: «It’s good to know there’s still honest people out there».
“Still”? What does this mean?
Is honesty becoming abnormal?
Is it rare to be honest?
Am I an abnormal by being honest?
Are these legitimate questions or am I becoming mentally ill?
«Honesty is such a lonely word.
Everyone is so untrue.
Honesty is hardly ever heard.
And mostly what I need from you.»
Click and listen…
Honesty is natural, dishonesty is counter nature.
But this is just my opinion – what’s yours?
