This is in response to Eva Finn’s post “Nice guys finish last, not because…”
So a lot of guys came out of the woodwork– a bit defensive, stressing the guy in the story wasn’t really “nice” and arguing what constitutes a “nice guy” or a “gentleman”.
Well maybe at some point, Jon was a nice guy or you were a nice guy, or that juror number 6 was a nice guy too; but you know what all the “nice guys” have in common? They met their Queen B who opened them up and set their hearts on fire while they were still breathing.
And girls, you know this has happened to you too! You have been stomped on and may have even lit a match yourself.
We were all “nice” once–
when we met someone that we thought as being special, connected, kindred souls. You poured your heart into doing everything to make them happy. Take them out on fancy dates and venues, lavish them with gifts for special moments, maybe write little “Have a nice day” notes for them to surprisingly find in his/her lunch bag. And for a time being you were probably the nicest guy/gal on earth.
Tipped the waiter an extra 10%, even though they fucked up your order?
Slipped that homeless dude a c-note, cause you know, he’s all out there on his own.
Got sideswiped by a soccer-mom putting on her mascara and not paying attention to the light that turned red? “Oh, don’t worry it’s just scratch.”
Let your employees out early cause its such a beautiful rainy day with freezing sleet; and you think folks should make it home in time to curl up with their loved ones?
Yeah. We were all nice folks.
And for a little while I was a nice girl too.
Until the day you wake up with an ice cold blade in your chest because the one closest to you had betrayed you. And now you have no heart.
Now everyone and everything around you can go to hell in a hand-basket, and shit! They better stay there if they know what’s good for them!
Nice folks finish last because they’re dead. Someone, last night, ripped their hearts out and left them bleeding in their beds.
And now all that’s left is the assholes eating each other up.
