A guy in my office told me that all men are pigs. While I pretty much already knew that, I began to wonder…What does that mean? Personally, I think it means that men have thoughts that aren’t exactly polite, nice or otherwise proper for public consumption.
Honestly, I don’t really have a problem with that. It’s one thing to think about something. It’s another thing to do something about it. Sure, we all have thoughts that we probably shouldn’t, but I think the majority of us are decent people who recognize that those thoughts aren’t worth acting on. It’s called a society.
Which brings me to the question I’ve been thinking about…what is the difference between a pig and a scumbag? I think the scumbags are the ones who act on those pig-like thoughts and in the process hurt someone. The hurting part is the key to the difference.
Now whether or not being a scumbag in your love life matters in your professional life is a question I’m not sure about. However, unless you are a potential date, I really don’t want to know if you cheated on your significant other. I will instantly conclude that you are scumbag in the rest of your life, which may or may not be true.
