Neat People vs. Sloppy People
I’ve finally figured out the difference between neat people and sloppy people. The distinction is, as always, moral. Neat people are lazier and meaner than sloppy people.
Sloppy people, you see, are not really sloppy. Their sloppiness is merely the unfortunate conse¬quence of their extreme moral rectitude. Sloppy people carry in their mind’s eye a heavenly vi¬sion, a precise plan, that is so stupendous, so perfect, it can’t be achieved in this world or the next.
Sloppy people live in Never-Never Land . Someday is their metier. Someday they are planning to alphabetize all their books and set up home cata¬logues. Someday they will go through their wardrobes and mark certain items for tentative mending and certain items for passing on to relatives of similar shape and size. Someday sloppy people will make family scrapbooks into which they will put newspaper clippings, postcards, locks of hair, and dried cor¬sage from their senior prom. Someday they will file everything on the surface of their desks, including the cash receipts from coffee purchases at the snack shop. Someday they will sit down and read all the back issues of The New Yorker.
For all these noble reasons and more, sloppy people never get neat. They aim too high and wide. They save everything, planning someday to file, or¬der, and straighten out the world. But while these ambitious plans take clearer and clearer shape in their heads-, the books spill from the shelves onto the floor, the clothes pile up in the hamper and clos¬et, the family mementos accumulate in every draw¬er, the surface of the desk is buried under mounds of paper and the unread magazines threaten to reach the ceiling.
Sloppy people can’t bear to part with anything. They give loving attention to every detail. When sloppy people say they’re going to tackle the surface of the desk, they really mean it. Not a paper -will go unturned; not a rubber -band will go unboxed. Four hours or two weeks into the excavation, the desk looks exactly the same, primarily because the sloppy person is meticulously creating new piles of papers with new headings and scrupulously stopping to read all the old book catalog before he throws them away. A neat person would just bulldoze the desk.
Neat people are bums and clods at heart. They have cavalier attitudes toward possessions, including family heirlooms. Everything is just another dust-catcher to them. If anything collects dust, it’s got to go and that’s that. Neat people will toy with the idea of throwing the children out of the house just to cut down on the clutter.
Neat people don’t care about process. They like results. What they want to do is get the whole thing over with so they can sit down and watch the rasslin on TV. Neat people operate on two unvary¬ing principles: Never handle any item twice, and throw everything away.
The only thing messy in a neat person’s house is the trash can. The minute something comes to a neat person’ s hand, he will look at it, try to decide if it has immediate use and, finding none, throw it in the trash.
Neat people are especially vicious with mail. They never go through their mail unless they are standing directly over a trash can. If the trash can is beside the mailbox, even better. All ads, cata¬logs, pleas for charitable contributions, church bul¬letins and money-saving coupons go straight into the trash can without being opened. All letters from home, postcards from Europe, bills and paychecks are opened, immediately responded to, then dropped in the trash can. Neat people keep their receipts on¬ly for tax purposes. That’s it. No sentimental salvaging of birthday cards or the last letter a dying rel¬ative ever wrote. Into the trash it goes.
Neat people place neatness above everything, even economics. They are incredibly wasteful. Neat people throw away several toys every time they walk through the den. I knew a neat person once who threw away a perfectly good dish drainer be¬cause it had mold on it. The drainer was too much trouble to wash. And neat people sell their furniture when they move. They will sell a La-Z-Boy recliner while you are reclining in it.
Neat people are no good to borrow from. Neat people buy everything in expensive little single por¬tions. They get their flour and sugar in two-pound bags. They wouldn’t consider clipping a coupon, saving a leftover, reusing plastic non-dairy whipped cream containers or rinsing off tin foil and draping it over the unmoldy dish drainer. You can never bor¬row a neat person s newspaper to see what’s playing at the movies. Neat people have the paper all wadded up and in the trash by 7:05 a.m.
Neat people cut a clean swath through the or¬ganic as well as the inorganic world. People, ani¬mals, and things are all one to them. They are so insensitive. After they have finished with the pantry, the medicine cabinet, and the attic, they will throw out the red geranium (too many leaves) sell the dog (too many fleas), and send the children off to boarding school (too many scuffmarks on the hardwood floors).

My living Habbits
I have some habbits, some are good, but some are bad. I like reading very much. From reading science books, I get a lot of knowledge. From reading novels, I lose myself in the stories. I like doing sports, too. It helps me keep healthy. Also I never put today\'s work till tomorrow. They are all my good habbits. They help me a lot in my daily life.
However, I also have some bad habbits. For example, sometimes I do my homework slowly, and stay up till very late. During meals I prefer meat to vegetables. And sometimes I play computer games too long without having a rest. They are all harmful to my health.
From now on I\'ll try to keep my good habbits, and give up the bad ones. Then I'll live better.
