The Type

In life there are groups of people who are considered to be the type.  They have their own cliques who tend to think they are superior to others, of a different upper breed and consider individuals to be beneath them.  You see it frequently in many of the old TV shows.  Even when I was in school, people were nice but the individuals who came from wealthy families were in their own group.  Don’t misunderstand me.  I did not come from money but the individuals in the group were still nice to everyone.  As time went on, in many areas and schools, the treatment of classmates changed significantly.  I just saw it in an old “Full House” the other day.  Stephanie was going on a date with a boy and Gia told her she could not or there would be consequences.  Gia had this attitude that she above her. Stephanie refused and the next day Gia had posted signs everyday stating that Stephanie paid boys to date her.  In “The Brady Bunch” Marsha was just starting high school and had joined almost every club.  One of the clubs was a group of girls who only let in what they considered the elite.  They called themselves the Booster Club.  They met at the Brady house and were on the patio.  Peter was building a volcano for a science project.  The girls wanted it removed as they felt it was dirty but Marsha said it couldn’t be moved because it wasn’t finished.  The girls began talking about being a member, appearances and ‘the type’. Marsha asked them to explain and they simply stated that the members of the Booster Club were above everyone else.  Right at that moment the volcano exploded everywhere.  The girls were hysterical but Marsha could not stop laughing.  Apparently, she told her mother and Alice she was not the type for their club.  In the Good Gus series everyone was equal.  There were types but that only meant they were shopkeepers, ranchers, farmers, etc.  Nothing to do with an upper or lower class. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. Hard copies, personally autographed, are available through our website along with past blogs for your reading enjoyment. Digitizing for all the books are available now!  Books one and two are now available on the Tractor Supply website. “Misplaced Trust” will be available this month.
