chronic I was watching a BBC show when one of the characters said that the new disease  of modern society was chronic dissatisfaction. The character she said that to replied, “That is certainly true.” Chronic dissatisfaction is a new modern development. In the past there have been articles about various people who have made issues over small and insignificant things. That was because they had the chronic dissatisfaction disease. For example, there have been numerous articles about individuals making a scene over their dinner if it wasn’t whatever they thought it was supposed to be. In reading the articles, it seemed ludicrous as to what they were complaining about. Of course, a starving child or adult would have been so grateful for that food that it simply wouldn’t have mattered. The individuals’ complaints were not that the food wasn’t cooked properly, not that it wasn’t what they ordered, but rather how the waiter or waitress presented it, the position of the food on the plate, the style of the plate and so forth. All utter nonsense. Their chronic dissatisfaction disease seemed to be out of control.  It’s not just about food either.  Teenagers have been brought into an age where their chronic dissatisfaction is beyond ridiculous.  Many of the TV shows portray this.  They need the exact back pack, the designer clothes, a specific brand of laptop and tablet, and even the perfect hairstyle.  They appear to be embarrassed if their parents dress to suit their needs, drive a car that is not extremely expensive or popular, or have a career that is not important enough to bring in large amounts of money.  There are additional TV shows that give the same impression to make sure that the teens are aware of what is in and what is out.  It’s a wonderful way to promote their products but it all leads to chronic dissatisfaction.  Money makes the world go round but it is not necessary to breed unhappiness or chronic dissatisfaction over everything including material items, relationships, and simply life in general.  There is no one in the Good Gus Series in Pecos or the surrounding areas that has the disease.  If the beneficiaries of a will or trust have severe chronic dissatisfaction with you or their gifts, view maecharlesbooks.com and read “Misplaced Trust.”  You may become quite satisfied.
