NoooooooO!!!!! *whine* This blog will be SOOOO missed!! I have talked this site up with many a beleaguered cashier/retail worker, and they thought it sounded wonderful. Some even pulled it up on their cells or computers right in front of me! It will be SORELY missed! It is the first thing I go to when I fire up my laptop of a morning. Now I'll have to find a new morning routine. Again, you will be sorely missed!

Oh good. I kept going over it and not seeing anything that could be called poor literacy. And I used to be a proofreader in another life.

Idiots do abound! I was in the local Big Blue DIY store and was stuck in the restroom hallway while the employees used a forklift right outside the doorway. I had NO problem waiting, as they were only doing their job and protecting their customers.

Obviously, someone doesn't know the history of their holiday. Namely, that it was stolen from a heathen pagan holiday of fertility. So, yeah. Easter IS for rabbits, too!

I hope someone went inside and reported the douchebag.

I had politely informed someone in line at Wendy's that it was illegal to park in the striped spots as that was where handicapped could offload wheelchairs and such. He said (at the top of his lungs) he was parked in the crosswalk (despite THAT being illegal as hell. I told him I was just trying to save him a parking ticket, and he commenced to yell and scream at me. I told him I knew the laws, as I was a handicapped driver, thus illicting the infamous "You don't LOOK handicapped!" scream. A biiiig dude came up behind me and came to my defense, and the screamer finally gave up and left still at the top of his lungs. This whole thing left me shaken, and I let everyone behind me go ahead of me until I could stop shaking. Some of them made comments like "Hey, lunch AND a show!" and most commiserated with me. I had kept my voice low so as not to draw attention, but the bad parker KNEW he was in the wrong, the screaming asshat.

People are ijits. I once mentioned to a doctor I worked with that his son was walking very well for having spino bifida. I had watched them both walk down the hall and the kiddo, around 4, was walking in a very distinctive way to me. The doc got incensed, not just mad and said how DARE I mention any type of physical impairment in front of his darling! And how the hell could I know. I had to tell him that my brother has it, and doesn't consider it an impairment. Ijit, I tell you!

It's getting to the point that you can't go anywhere without a taser or pepper spray!

We flew cross country last year and there was an autistic child and his family on the same plane. While waiting to board he started to have a mini-meltdown, and that is when his mom gave him his "travel medicine". All legit, of course (she showed me the Rx), but it made him sleepy, so he dozed the entire flight. She was taking responsibility. She had his favorite sensory toys, favorite snacks, etc, so she was prepared. If I had to travel with the screamer, I'm afraid I would have been screaming, too, but right in his face. I do know a couple of autistic kids, and they are all cool. But that stems from parents who continually strive to learn how to deal with it and help the kiddo learn how to deal as well.

"If you can't use all your words like a real adult, then no." Good grief. I would not have given her the vendor discount simply for how she treated you/me! Vendors usually know how to act and what to do to prove themselves. THAT was an "entitled person", in my opinion.

People who refer to themSELVES as heros....aren't. Sorry this happened. Most likely this guy never was in the service, and is a natural-born asshat.
