We all hope that we can trust that others have a certain level of dignity. We hope that people truly care about how they make others feel, how they talk to others, and how they treat others. This sounds great, but unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
There are people out there who will do anything to hurt other people, even if it’s just to get a laugh. They don’t care if they do something that makes another person ill, let alone if they do something that makes another person feel pain. Take this video, for example. A guy films his friend as they walk through the grocery store looking at ice cream. His female companion then decides to make him laugh by opening a carton of ice cream, licking the surface, and then placing the lid back onto the container. After she puts the ice cream back into the freezer and walks away, her friend filming the disgusting feat begins to laugh uncontrollably. There is nothing funny about leaving germs behind for others to suffer through. It is enough to make you wonder just what happens to all of the food that you purchase from the store.
The girl who licked the ice cream did so because she thought it was funny and would receive a few ‘likes’ on social media, no doubt. Whether the video went viral or not, one thing is for sure: we have evidence that some people are really nasty and inconsiderate. How would she feel if her mother bought ice cream that someone else licked and placed back in the freezer? One can only hope that this was a ‘one-off’ situation and that it isn’t something that would ever happen again. Unfortunately, however, we all know that this is simply one incident that was actually filmed. Too bad the consciousness of American youth is fading fast.
