Granparents thought they were being given a peaceful Hawaiian 50th Wedding Anniversary Vacation.
Little did they know, Steve and Kelly had something more adventurous in mind. A Honeymoon / Bucket List Tour 2015 courtesy of God Speed.
Skydiving? Check Shark diving? Check Bucket List Tour? Check Leave Grandparents at house? Check Consolation attendance at Grandparent’s Wish List events? Not so much. Keep up Bully Campaign, from Hawaii, on the relatives back on the mainland with dozens and dozens of Indirect Cyber-Bully posts on Facebook? Check
The Hawaii (Shove-your-nose-in-it-with-500-selfies) “Bucket List” of extreme sports was fulfilled by Steve Muto, Kelly Muto and her daughters this week in Hawaii.
Too bad for ‘ole Grandma and Grandpa, the Bucket List looks a little extreme for the 70+ crowd. They must have been stranded at the house possibly cooking up some Blueberry Buckle.
What, were they watching from the house that’s not on a beach? It’s called Waterfront, not Beachfront for those low information people. To be a beachfront it would have to have SAND. This must be a difficult concept for some … Continue reading →
The ability to take criticism well depends mostly on how secure we feel about ourselves. Yet it could hardly be said that any of us actually enjoys being criticized. For it’s a challenge to avoid feeling defensive when we experience ourselves as attacked. At such times, it’s more “natural”–or rather, more aligned with our conditioning–to go into self-protective mode. And typically, the way we choose to protect ourselves is through denying the … Continue reading →
The Parents of Steve Muto (Ron and Ruth Muto) are addicted to the “Jet-setter” lifestyle.
So much so, they will do practically anything, obviously, based on their actions this week, to get a free ride on their next Vacation.
Anything with a free, plane ticket, boat ride or trip on a merry-go-round. They don’t care who they stomp on, or hurt, on their way to the airport or loading dock, watch out here they come. They surely don’t care if they permanently damage their grand-kids, kids, in-laws. Shine it! “Who cares about … Continue reading →
It is the speed of communication on the Internet—not just the anonymity—that makes it such a dangerous place. Rumors that would have taken weeks to reach the public consciousness in the pre-Internet age can rouse the Twitchfork-wielding rabble in an instant.
There’s a quote attributed to psychology pioneer William James that voices the principle at work here: “there’s nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it.”
That kind of mass-repetition can now happen on social media in a matter of minutes.
Sometimes bullying, especially in families, is more covert.
If you call out an adult bully, they reply with incredulity, “I was just asking questions! I can’t believe you took it that way,” putting the blame back on you. And then you start to wonder if you’re the crazy one. Yet even if you turn yourself inside out to try to please the bully, you never will, because bullies thrive on the feeling of instilling fear. Meet one demand and they’ll come up with another.
Accidents between tractor trailers and passenger vehicles are on the rise and so are injuries and fatalities connected with these crashes.
Since many businesses depend on trucking companies to deliver their merchandise to customers, truckers face deadlines for hauling cargo to specific destinations. While most truckers follow the rules of the road in the course of their job, some exhibit bad driving behavior and pose dangerous risks on the highway.
You probably have thought of at least one person when you saw the name of this list; it’s that person, who no matter how much you love him or her or how great of a friend he or she can be in real life, he or she is without a doubt, the most annoying person on your Facebook news feed. Check out the list of 15 ways to tell if someone is insufferably bad at Facebook.
Oh, and you may want to make sure that somehow, that annoying friend of yours takes a look at this, too. Think of it … Continue reading →
We’ve all met one at some point. A man or woman who seems to believe they are the center of the universe. Arrogant, callous and manipulative, they force the world around them to accommodate this belief.
Self-important and conceited, the narcissist exaggerates accomplishments, requires endless praise, and has an uncanny ability to quash the achievements of others. They lack empathy and don’t seem aware that you are a whole person with your own needs. In fact, you’re only a useful tool, something to extract admiration from. The narcissist believes they’re entitled to everything, including your time, your emotions and your self-esteem.
13th Attack-Defence Strategy: Claim the Part of the Victim (Steve Muto is straddling many stages of the Attack-Defense-Strategy, but his BigKahunaBully website is proof of the following…)
Following closely after ‘feigned humility’, the Attack-Defence is complete. The Family Serial Bully will have successfully redefined themselves as the victim who requires more protection, attention, understanding and forgiveness than their Target(s). The same rights that go with being the ‘favored one’. If even one Ally is willing to allow the Family Serial Bully this … Continue reading →
Steve’s Over-the-Top Cursed Hawaiian Vacation “Countdown” has to go down as one of the most ridiculous displays of narcissism ever witnessed.
The time and energy it took to try prove something to everyone, what we don’t know, but it is quite a body of work when you assemble it all into a single list. This took hours mind you. By the way, he did all of with the knowledge of having destroyed the relationships and family vacation that had been worked on so hard by other members of his family.
Recently, I found myself sitting with a patient Elsa, who was crying inconsolably in my office. It turns out that her sister had stolen her inheritance out from under her. It wasn’t the loss of the money that was making her feel so devastated, though; it was the shocking betrayal by her only sibling.
Elsa’s sister Joyce had gotten their dying mother to change her will at the last minute, leaving everything to her. Their mother had been ill for a long time and Joyce had found a way to convince her … Continue reading →
