Do not be this guy-boredom problem solved

Boredom will make you do some crazy things…..

Deputies say 23-year-old Steven Harper went on a one man vandalism spree — hitting the Wendy’s, Pik and Run, Allstate and Bank of America off of Olean all in one night.

So what causes massive boredom that can lead to horrible behavior and negative consequences? A lack of imagination.  There is a lot to do when you really take the time to think about it. The problem?  They are all activities you probably turn your nose up at.   I can think right now of a dozen things to do want to see? No you don’t but I will enlighten you anyway just because you may be curious. I am going to assume most people have better things to do then read 12 random things to do if your bored

  1. Draw something
  2. Practice a foreign language
  3. Watch a movie with foreign subtitles
  4. Weed the Garden
  5. Bathe the dog
  6. Scratch the dog’s belly
  7. Google: Events in my area
  8. Call a Random number
  9. Write a book
  10. Call the parents
  11. Pick a random recipe off of a random site. Make it better then the one who posted it.
  12. Sit on a bench in a busy area and people watch

Whatever you do, don’t be that guy.  If you are bored too long you can end up staying in your own mind for a very long time and that can lead to some crazy things.  There is always something to do.

My Mamma would always tell me:  You had better go find something to do before I give you something to do.
