  Man's Inhumanity to Man
I'm growing increasingly frustrated by the inconsideration I encounter everywhere I go. Whether its the person kicking my seat at the movies theatre, or the people who stop and have a conversation in front of the Manulife Centre door, these individuals seem to have no appreciation of the impact of their behaviours on others.

I have a theory. These people, who conservative estimates place at about 80 per cent of the population, are fundamentally unable to recognize the humanity of those around them. Its like every person who they do not know personally are either holograms or robots, and compose some kind of shifting background to their lives. In Toronto, they are thoughtless. In other contexts, they could be mass murderers or despots.

Well, I got news for you. I exist like you exist. And if you don't start giving me he same consideration I give to you, I will let you know about it.

Consider this fair warning.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
