Why Do People Do Wat They Do?

A few weeks ago during league bowling, I couldn't believe wat "Uncle" did.

Normally, our team sits in the back pit area cause we eat and have sodas but cause had people there already (not from our league), we sat in the lower pit. There was another league bowling their final game next to us while we were well under way in our first.

I was sitting in that empty seat and my "stuff" was on the seat next to it.... at least I was sitting there.

"Uncle", who is NOT in our league (sitting with his back showing in da pic), decides to make house and commandeer our side of da lanes as he takes his sweet @$$ time cleaning up.

I have no idea wat makes it right - or even acceptable - to use anoddah league's area WHILE the league is going on but how you can even do it without an inkling of thought or consideration is beyond me.

It may not be a big deal - or even a wasted breath - for some, but for me it is because it's actions like these that deteriorates the very meaning of morals and values. It may be just "one time" but wat about da next time? Or da time aftah dat? Pretty soon not going be one next time cause it's already going to be da norm.

Plus, he had CHOKE room on his lanes! No one was sitting next to him and had empty seats on his side so why he had to extend his "right" to our side is beyond me.

Now for all those who tink wat's da big deal and there was nothing wrong with wat "Uncle" did cause he just packing up...... wat if I told you dat in da second picture, he placed his hannah-battah tissue on da chair?

I saw him blow his nose and it wasn't pretty, wipe it clean and then put it down behind him on OUR seat. Wat was even more astonishing was dat aftah he wen put 'em down. He turned around as if he was just going to leave it!!!

Wassup Wit Dat!

It was minutes latah dat he actually started to pack up and put more stuff on da seat - did I mention had one empty seat RIGHT NEXT TO HIM?!

It was so UNBOWLIEVABLE! (haole version of WWD!). Maybe das why it's actually our team name dis year. :roll: No, really, it is. Hea's da shirts I made.

Needless to say, no one sat in dat chair da rest of da night.

Would you evah do something li'dat? Well, if you do, I wouldn't tink you come out and say dat you do but have you evah witnessed something li'dat? Wat do you do with your hannah-battah tissue? I dunno about you but I try to throw it away right aftah and if no can, I wrap it up in a clean one and I definitely won't put it down in a publicly shared space.

Sharing is caring and we gotta deal with hog-cheese kine people all da time.... but I gotta draw da line wen hannah-battahs are involved.

    I used to bowl league... chronic kine... and whether it was one of my 5-6 leagues in the week or just a open lane time, we never NEVER went into someone else's area. I dunno, maybe times have changed in the last (over) 20 years, but that was unheard of.

    And if someone left their germies on a public area (next door or their own area) you can be sure you would have heard a "Eh brah, come pick up yo' hanabata kleenex! Ho da pilau, you!". Yes, we did!

    Don't know wassamatta with this man. So shame.


  2. sally:

    oh wait... FOIST!


  3. Keoni Simpkins:

    It's da AINOKEA attitude!


  4. Keoni Simpkins:

    numbah 'elua!


  5. sally:

    oh, BTW, so clever your bowling shirt. My time, the bowling shirts said stuff like Club Crystal Palace. LOL


  6. hemajang:

    "Uncle" is clueless and need to be told, as all. He probably would smile and say, "sorry eh" and throw his stuff away. "Aunty" stay sitting upside knitting one sweater waiting for him to pau bowling and take him home.


  7. fortheloveof:

    U right! "One time" becomes "next time" becomes "time aftah dat" becomes "norm."
    Wat used to be "rules" now only "suggestions." Dats how problems start, yeah. Small things become big ones. Deterioration of a civil society


  8. fortheloveof:

    Luv your shirt. gotta get one


  9. Kage:

    Sometimes they just gotta be told that it is wrong. Too many times people are clueless they are being socially inept.


  10. M:

    Howzit BL!
    Dat bugga mus do that all da time, make house.


  11. Ocean Lover:

    Eh BL...........when you bowl against him....go kick his okole...but DON'T "shake his hand".


  12. lowtone123:

    Maybe he going change his ways once word gets back to him that he was "outed". The again maybe not. Some old timers tink dey get some sense of entitlement especially when confronted by younger folks.


  13. what was on Your mind:

    Nice first picture. Sukebe.


  14. anklebiters:

    The universe may not always play fair, but at least it's got a hell of a sense of humor.....next time Gangnam Style the uncle.... ;-)


  15. BowlingBuddy:

    People are funny animals. They think that no one is looking when they try to be "sneakie" and leave their "trash", especially the older ones. In this new cyber age, beware, people are looking for every and any thing to take a picture and post. BTW, I thought your first picture was of the female bending over. I was thinking OMG, what is BL looking at?


  16. kamaaina808:

    Brah, I so would've said something... next time, though... next time. Merry Monday, BL. :-)

    No, still da same....... only difference is no need write down scores. :grin: In my first league at Bowl-A-Drome had to do dat and you quickly learn how much math majors there are. :shock:

    And if someone left their germies on a public area (next door or their own area) you can be sure you would have heard a "Eh brah, come pick up yo' hanabata kleenex! Ho da pilau, you!". Yes, we did!

    Was just watching to see if he was going to pick 'em up or going leave.

    oh wait... FOIST!

    You can't say first aftah wen you stay in da second spot. :razz:

    Ho, eaaaaasy Ty-gah. Well, if he was in our league I wouldn't feel weird saying something cause I know everyone in our league but since he isn't I just gotta give him da deep kim chee stink eye.


  18. Cojef:

    Yes, ainokea attitude, but wait, it's plain selfishness on his part, even to the hanabatta. You can't call him braddahs, he is Ajac--off. He is unconscious of his behavior. Probably reflects how he lives at home, a slob! Yikes hanabatta all over his home, a pig sty.


  19. PFP:

    BL, gotta say this, my brother. Take it easy. You are going to have a heart attack soon if you keep getting riled up about stuff like that. Give the braddah a break, he too old already, maybe he forgot his manners cause of alzheimers.

    I understand your frustration with the braddah, but let it go. I hope you give up the bike too, soon. Too much risk, my braddah. Your little one is gonna need you to help her with high school and college. The bike is too risky. Time to park 'em.

    Oddawise, happy holidays to you and your family and all the WWDers!


  20. snow:

    next time, just make like you don't know it's him and yell out to your own team, "hey, who's stuff dis?! no leave your dirty kleenex on my seat!" ;)

    lowtone123:

    I no tink it's li'dat completely although it comes across li'dat. I tink it's cause da old school ways have been disappearing and wat was once respect and courtesy now gives way to rudeness and selfish behavior. Da "old" people are just stuck in da Leave It To Beaver age while it's da Kardashians and watevah reality show is hot now.

    what was on Your mind:
    Nice first picture. Sukebe.

    Are you calling me a sukebe? Just wanted to clarify cause I dunno if you being sarcastic or just pointing out da wahine in da background dat I nevah notice cause I was focusing on "Uncle". You tink I would take dat kine pics........ and the post 'em??? Fo' realz, WWD!. Anyways, wat can you "see" dat would make it a sukebe pic? Was there any nudity? Was there anything inappropriate? Or are you pointing out how it may appear dat "Uncle" is being a little sukebe?

    Just wondering.

    Hmmm.... dat would be me but only fo' WWD! purposes though.

    BTW, I thought your first picture was of the female bending over. I was thinking OMG, what is BL looking at?

    Ha ha ha! Like I mentioned in da response earlier, wat kine pic would make it "bad"? I will admit I nevah even notice dat until you guys pointed it out but I still no see wat's wrong with a bowler picking up a bowling ball. Now if she was naked then I would be in trouble. :shock:

    Who's riled up?

    I hope you give up the bike too, soon. Too much risk, my braddah. Your little one is gonna need you to help her with high school and college. The bike is too risky. Time to park 'em.

    Unless you willing to buy me a brand new vehicle, it's easy to say give it up. Then how I going to work? How am I going to provide for my little one? Surah I can take public transportation but then like you mention so often, that will take away time from Da Baby as well. And no need worry about anything happening cause if dat time comes, they'll be taken care of.

    But just case you want to park a brand new car in my driveway, a Lexus, Volvo or Toyota SUV will be fine.


  22. wafan:

    Do what I do. Take hand wipes. Push the hanabata laden kleenex on the floor and kick it over to him. Then wipe the seat.


  23. L.:

    yuck.
    you need to keep sanitizer and towels near just to deal with this kind peoples. rude.


  24. MrK:

    Cut Uncle some slack. Wass the big deal?!? Just go sit someplace else. We all have our "quirks" and habits that may irritate others. Have some tolerance people. Just because you no like what somebody is doing, don't take it as a personal attack and infringement on you. I'm reading the book "Boi No Good", by Chris McKinney. He writes about people that grumble about everything. You can find these people living in Kailua ("Crylua") and Hawaii Kai ("Hawaii Cry").

    I get neighbors that party loud, late into the night. Their dogs often barks all night long. Sometimes their dog takes a dump on my lawn. I don't really like it when these things happen, but I have tolerance because, one day, I may need them to be tolerant of my family. Who knows, one day my kid may accidently throw a baseball thru their car's windshield or something, and I will want forgiveness. Word of da' day - Tolerance
