The Human Manure Spreader

The Human Manure Spreader

The Human Manure Spreader is the man or woman who takes their bitterness and anger out on other human beings in the same way a manure spreader indiscriminately spreads its fecal matter.

These people sling their human “crapital” all over those in their lives, except for those whose rears they have to kiss lest they lose a job or something else very important to them. They have virtually no boundaries, physically or emotionally.

These people are narcissists and wreak havoc on those around them. They don’t listen, they’re extremely opinionated, they’re rude (no manners), talk about themselves nonstop, and don’t have a caring, nurturing bone in their body.

The dominant trait for the HMS is their critical nature— they cut people people down for sport. They get a thrill out of criticizing and demeaning others.

They are never wrong, and when their ego is threatened by any amount of criticism they will aim to destroy him or her. If you look up “ruthless” in the dictionary, there’s the HMS‘s picture right beside it.

Dealing with an HMS is impossible in most situations because he or she cannot negotiate or compromise. If they do, they strike a deal wherein they still benefit more than you. Compromising isn’t something that will happen, and this is because of their deep lacking of empathy. Having a heart and seeing the other person’s point of view is simply not something they have.

An HMS doesn’t know, and doesn’t care, how he or she comes across to others. If they did they would adjust their behaviors like most normal human beings do. So to deal with them put on your emotional armor, a teflon coat if you will, and don’t allow yourself to be brought down to their juvenile level. They are emotionally stunted, so knowing this should help you realize you can’t ever change them or win them over.

If you’re an airline pilot, don’t settle for a Standard Possession Order or another state-created template used to make the job of those in the family courts easier. With your schedule that changes month to month, it’s important for you and your attorney to demand an airline pilot possession order, an airline employee possession order, or variable possession order (its name depends on the state you’re in).

In the below video, I outline the basics. Consult a family law attorney in your state for details, but in general here is what an airline pilot possession order is:
