Whether you're in a parking lot at a grocery store and find a cart 7 feet outside the cart corral or walking into someone else's home to find dishes piled to the ceiling, laziness is never an attractive trait. It is amazing how incredibly lazy we've become as a society. Think about how many "lazy man's" adaptations you've seen in the past few years. While I would never argue that progress and new inventions are not necessary, at a certain point, "modern conveniences" are just an excuse to not put for any effort.
Back in high school, I travelled with the resident Spanish Club to Costa Rica. Obviously, this little excursion required taking 35 people in a group through a post 9/11 airport, so it proved to be quite an ordeal. I was dumbfounded to find every individual, myself excluded, taking the escalator instead of the stairs. While this may not seem to be a huge deal, note that every member of the group was able-bodied, and we were staring down the prospect of sitting in airplane seats for the next 6 hours. Would it have killed anyone to put forth that extra effort to (literally) carry their own wait? I proved every time we had to climb that even when walking at my normal pace, it was faster to take the stairs. Despite the repeated showing of the stairs superior quickness, no one followed my lead.
All great men have been hard workers. Name any great leader, the archetype for the purposes of this site being Teddy Roosevelt. You will note that whatever person you mentioned undoubtedly had numerous hobbies and spent countless hours cultivating their skills. Greatness is indeed habit, not an act.
If you, like me, are driven up the wall by the laziness of other people, there is, unfortunately, only one thing you can do about it. Don't become lazy yourself.
Remember the old proverb, "The only thing less manly than a lazy male is a stuff purple bunny with pink streamers flowing out its ears riding a rainbow colored unicycle." You don't want to be a stuffed purple bunny do you?
