Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

cat with colitis

I have a customer I have swapped kitty pictures with.  I realized a significant code branch was not communicated to me so I couldn't finish what I started, and instead of getting upset, she told me well, my cat has colitis.

Wow.  Poor kitty.  I couldn't possibly be angry or self-pitying after that.

Now why doesn't Muppet evoke the same response from me.

Her cat doesn't make a point of biting you every day.

No, it's just that sharky has contempt for every human but herself.  Cats don't have opinions so they're easy to love.

"No, it's just that sharky has contempt for every human but herself."

Not sure I can argue with that.

I was doing my daily bus ride today.  Going home.  Older gray man gets on, sits in the seat in front of me.

I smell oranges.  I notice he is peeling one, and dropping the peelings onto the floor.

So I yelled "THIS BUS IS NOT A FUCKING GARBAGE CAN!!!"

But he didn't understand English.  He is a Russki.  So now everyone is staring at me.  I am now that "crazy lady on the bus."

And you wonder why I hold people in contempt.

Your first reaction was to shout and swear? You are the crazy woman on the bus.  Speak softly, you'll get  alot more done in the end.

At the end of a long day, being really nice to idiots ALL FUCKING DAY, I really don't feel motivated to put sugar on a stinking sore.

You people are missing the point.

This isn't about me. It is about a cat that has the same disease as muppet.

I feel for the cat.  I don't feel for muppet. And it isn't because I yelled at an old man today. It is because people are shits.

I may have handled the situation in a less positive way, but really now.  People dumping garbage onto the bus. That's some selfish, ignorant bullshit.

And let me tell the whole story:  people who come to the US and refuse to speak English, decide they want to destroy the comforts of public transportation and shit on my value system can kiss both cheeks of my ass.
