Judgmental Tag

In the days like these, when a lot has been happening and lot hasn't been happening, when the boredom or work took precedence over blogging , came a very different sort of tag from no other than a very good 'old' :-) friend, ex-colleague, mentor, so not doing it was never an option.

It's all about the things/traits/people that force me to be judgmental about them.
Now, as I'm writing this, 'm realizing the how difficult this is turning out to be.

Well, sometimes I'm judgmental, sometimes I'm not, mostly it depends on my mood, and mostly I believe in giving benefit-of-doubt to others that saves me from lots of unnecessary tension but still on some days I'm not that kind.
So there's the list …..

1) I tend to get judgmental about people who overindulge in office parties, or at some else's expense, and do it to the extent of obscene proportions.
2) I get judgmental about people who don't take care of things which they borrow from others.
3) I get judgmental about people who don't adhere to basic norms of personal hygiene.
4) I get judgmental about people who don't return borrowed things.
5) I get judgmental about people who take way too much interest interfere way too much in others lives.

As I'm proceeding further I think I'm getting negative and negative only which is not good. Am I judging myself here. No? :-)
I'm a critic, or like everybody, have an opinion about everything, sports, politics, entertainment whatever, I'm always ready with some 'biased' opinion :-)

6) I'm judgmental about Sourav Ganguly, about almost all music directors, movie directors in positive way for some of them.
7) I get judgmental about people who break or try to break-in the queues on one pretext or another.
8) I get judgment about people who talk loudly on their phones at Public places.
9) I get judgmental about people who listen to Punjabi music.

Above 9 points sum up a lot, that’s fairly a general list, not in any particular order.
Well, now the tagging part, anyone who has been short of ideas or just plain lazy like me, can take this tag and kill some time bashing others :-)

Now, I can jump to my favorite topic ‘CRICKET’ :-) , at last Rain-Gods showered mercy on us and turned our team from a bunch of Unlucky Alis to Lucky Alis :-)

Btw, this blog turned 3 earlier this month!

I saw the highlights. I actually liked some of our bowling. Its a pity that our batsmen didn't stand up to the task, especially Sachin and Rahul.

@@Parth:: Ya, you are right,Now just coz Sachin n Dravis failed, so selectors cannot drop fading/below-average players like Ganguly n Laxman. These guys(Ganguly n Laxman) are now only good for 30-40ish kind of innings, and Jaffer is one hell of inconsistent player, same goes for Dhoni.

Jaffer -- First inning 50 will save him
Karthik – Second inning 50 will cover-up for his first inning failure and dropped catch of Strauss
Rahul – He is the CAPTAIN
Sachin – You can’t touch him
Ganguly and Laxman – just bcoz 2 players mentioned above faired badly than them and still can’t be dropped, so they can’t be dropped either.
Dhoni – Second inning’s not-out performance will save him
Zaheer – He was consistent with 2/3 wickets in each inning
Sreesanth – His first inning’s second’s first spell will save him
RP – He retains his place on basis of performance only.
Kumble – There is no replacement for him, still he is one guy you can trust to work tirelessly on any surface.

So bottom line is that, India will go with same line-up in second test , same goes with England.

Finally you take it one! But grrrrrrrrr...your cricket has to get in anything and everything! You will be you...forever!!

BTW, I was expecting some interesting facts which I probably was not aware of *wink*

Stone said...

@@Manu:: ...and other"wise" :-)

@@~nm:: hmmmm can't help, I'm a die-hard cricket fan!! Though enthusiasm abt it took some dent after WC debacle.
Ya, this list turned out to very general-types, something very common, but it is already so negative so I didn't feel adding some other points!
May be I guess, its time to do another type of tag ..something like about 'traits/things/people' you like in others :-)
