Petty people are ugly people. They are people who have lost their vision. They are people who have turned their eyes away from what matters and focused, instead, on what doesn’t matter. The result is that the rest of us are immobilized by their obsession with the insignificant. It is time to rid the home, the work place, the neighborhood---society in general, of pettiness. It is time we refused to be victimized by pettiness. It is time we refused to be victimized by petty people. It is also time we stopped ignoring pettiness. It is time we quit pretending that pettiness doesn’t matter. Pettiness has become a serious disease in society. It is a disease which continues to result in terminal cases of discord, disruption, and destruction. Petty people are dangerous people because they appear to be only a nuisance instead of what they really are---a health hazard!
