People With Hidden Agendas

Following on with the theme of likes and dislikes as I have been for the last few weeks, in this entry I will elaborate on my emphatic dislike of Hidden agenda2people with hidden agendas.
I pride myself on being an honest and open person, I am what I am and I am proud of that. I know it’s a cliché, but with me, what you see really is what you get. So I suppose that’s why the more devious and manipulative types out there really get to me, because I would never dream of trying hoodwink my fellow man, nor trying to trick them into doing something to their detriment that I will benefit from.
Throughout my working and personal life I have been unfortunate enough to come across quite a few people whose sole intention is to weasel stuff out of others. Once or twice, I’ve even been unlucky enough to fall for their rubbish and learn my lesson the hard way. I wouldn’t like to say that I am naïve, but I am quite a trusting person and I think it is a good trait to have. I’d hate to totally lose my faith in humanity just because I’ve been unlucky enough to cross paths with a couple of devious, two-faced scallywags, so thankfully I haven’t let them change me, but I have learnt from my mistakes.
Sadly, I’ve seen people close to the verge of losing everything, simply because they put their trust into someone with a hidden agenda. It’s usually only the good ones who suffer, those with good hearts and honest intentions and my theory for why this is, is simple, because the devious ones can smell their own!! From what I’ve seen, shysters seem to have an innate ability to spot similar traits in others, so unfortunately it’s the honest folk who end up on the wrong end of the ponzi scheme.
Dishonesty in general is something that makes my blood boil, I just don’t understand how these people can sleep at night. I think it’s a massive shame that there are so many people like that out there, looking to make a quick buck off another’s good idea, or worse, by bringing about another’s downfall. I reckon Jiminy Cricket has some work to do!!
