It's equally interesting and concerning how similar potty training is to politics. Here are 10 ways I've come up with. Feel free to load the comment section with your own!
10 WAYS POTTY TRAINING & POLITICS ARE BASICALLY THE SAME
1. Both scenarios involve trying to get someone who is full of shit to do what we've asked of them.
2. Bribery is a very common occurrence.
3. The shit-filled people seem to have all the power.
4. We trust, even though we have been lied to repeatedly, that we will be alerted to shit BEFORE it happens.
5. There's often a lot of smoke and mirrors when shit is going down right in front of our faces.
6. It's highly suspicious whenever things get quiet. Quite often, by the time we have all of the details, the damage has been done and there's a heavy amount of clean-up involved.
7. There's a lot of secrecy regarding what's going on in the bedroom, and we're usually really disappointed when we discover the mess that's been made.
8. There is a disturbing lack of shame involved whenever there is an accident.
9. Even after the shit comes out, and the evidence is undeniable, people with shit all over their hands lie and attempt to deflect responsibility.
10. We continue to have faith in these people and believe that things will turn around and get better -- even when there is so much evidence to the contrary.
Let me know how I did! Can you think of any more similarities?
