“Common Sense isn’t common.”
We’ve all heard this refrain. I hear it at my work every time someone does something we collectively deem idiotic. I’ve heard this said about people doing inane, silly things and heard this said about people who’ve died. Hell, I’ve said it. When someone does something stupid that we swear we’d never do, we think it even if we don’t say it.
It implies a strong judgment: I’d never do that, I know better, I understand the rules of our society because I belong. But is that really true?
