I Wish People Came With Warning Labels

    It'd Make the World So Much Easier to Deal With...

    I would love it if people came with warning labels. Nothing extreme! Just something like "GOOD PERSON HERE" or "PSYCHO STAY AWAY" so that we'd all know the difference. I've met a few people who would greatly benefit from having a warning label on them...then...

    Should Be Mandatory, I Think.

    Sometimes it's like I read people really well. I can usually smell a fake or a gossip a mile away. Some people, I click with, and I know that we will become close within minutes of first talking to them. But then, there are the others. The sneaky ones that really get me. The...

    Pretty On the Inside

    Where are all the genuine people? My life is an endless parade of people who really should wear a warning label. From friends who are only there when they want something...to family who couldn't care less if I live or die...to people in the street who want to ram their religious...

    Warning

    I guess I'm one of those people that should wear a warning label. I will always tell the truth when I'm ask. My dad says I'm like a shot gun. The fact is most people may not wear it like a badge but, if you listen to the person when you meet them for the first time you usually...

    WARNING

    Some people should come with a warning label that warns you that he is going to lie and cheat on you.  I have had a man cheat on me in the past and I had not a clue so a nice warning label would be nice.  Cheating women should have to wear them as well.

    I think I can use a couple of these.  I like to think of myself as being one of the good guys, someone who is pleasant and good natured and will support you when things aren't going well. I'd be lying if I didn't confess to some of the less attractive qualities that I have, such...

    Labels Of Truth!

    Oh, I’d love if it everyone had to wear warning labels.  Any time you go to a party or an office soiree, there should be big, fat obligatory labels of truth: “First person in the history of the world to get married: oh, you WILL hear about my wedding colours…” "Don’t...

    I wish people came with warning labels.  It's usually too late when you find out that someone is not the person they'd portrayed themselves to be.

    it is in life to part ways with people forever. That's why when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.
