Tales of the Self-Entitled
I nearly walked into someone on the train platform at Davis this morning. I'll confess to reading while I was walking, but I retained enough situational awareness to notice a young woman in glasses and a ponytail sporting comfortable clothing and an oversized bookbag cut around me and then stop dead. Before I walked into her, I stepped to one side and said, "Very sorry," smiling apologetically. Common courtesy would dictate no less.

She glared at me as I stepped around her, and apparently in a huff over almost being run into by the slow-moving newspaper reader she had just rushed around, said "ExCUSE me!" in a voice loud enough to cause several heads to turn nearby.

I can't tell you how much I just want to eviscerate people like that.

It's amazing how many instances of killing rage could surface if I let them.

I did almost ask her how cosplay bowling for charity was working out.

I love it when they're in such a furious rush to stand perfectly still. They just want to make sure they're in front of you, the one who intends to continue moving.

If it happens again, give her the ole "there's no excuse for you" line. Charms 'em every time.

She must have a spot on the platform where she and she alone waits. Maybe she thought that I'd get there and just, you know, stand.

Dude, that's her spot. How dare you pass through it on your way to other places.

Kick her in the twat!

Warning: you might loose a shoe!

Or do what i would do, ask her out. Nothing chastises the ladies like a "Dirty" come-on

tee hee

*smoke bomb*

this is exactly why i've decided to just be rude to people. there's no point in being courteous anymore.

There are times when I wonder if I wouldn't be better served in a smaller town, but I know that would carry its own perils.

obviously not me. i've spent enough time on public transit to realize that my actions will never turn the tide. sometimes being mean is empowering. :)

She's a whore, and you are a class act.
komos From: komos Date: November 13th, 2006 02:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wait for my next post before you say so. I will tell of adventures in New York City!
sassyinkpen From: sassyinkpen Date: November 13th, 2006 02:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Before I say she's a whore? Or before I say you're a class act? - (Because I thought that before this little incident, and don't anything you write will change my views on that)
sassyinkpen From: sassyinkpen Date: November 13th, 2006 03:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
And, wow, how about that grammar? I meant something along the lines of "I don't think anything you write will change my views..."

Weren't no thing. I swears it.

She must be terribly important.

She was probably on her way to Pandemonium for a marathon session of German board games.

Why does the term "German Style Board Games" make me think of wet leather and poo?

Re: cause

Dude, are you hitting the Deutsche pr0n again? I mean, it's cool and all, but it does lose something in translation.

I'd have just cut right around her and said nothing. I don't even give these meatsacks an opening for their commentaries any more unless it's to prevent an injury. It's the only way to get through crowds of uncoordinated tourists in Manhattan or past overamped music listeners while exiting stuffed trains.

I think I'm far too much of an idealist.

I wonder if her response was in fact an invitation to perform some sort of mating ritual.
It's all sounds so very Middle School.

I knew I should have started high-step strutting with my hands splayed like a tail, saying kukukukukukukukukuk. That get 'em every time.
