I almost smacked two stupid women on the link-rail today. They saw a couple of news vans out, preparing for the protest that was going to be taking place downtown Tacoma today and tomorrow.
The "news" attracted their attention and interrupted their important discussion about the one woman's hair and whether it looked better short or not (even though it was *gasp* messy), and whether they had a good workout this morning or not. So this is their conversation:
Dumb #1: ohmygosh, what are they doing?
Dumb #2: I think I heard there is some sort of protest or something
Dumb #1: About what?
Dumb#2: I don't know. I'm sure it is something stupid.
Dumb#1: Yeah, probably. It's always something stupid.
Dumb#2: Totally. I don't know why they have to irritate me and mess up my life.
Dumb#1: Yeah, it's like... get a grip and go somewhere else to protest whatever it is so it doesn't screw up my day.
I soooooo wanted to say something like... geez, I bet if they knew that their basic human rights and their entire lives/futures were going to 'mess with your day' they'd be so sorry. What are those poor immigrants thinking? Or maybe tell them that they should actually pull their heads out of their rectums and actually know what is going on in the world around them before spouting off like idiots, but it would have been a waste of breath.
