Just got back from filling my car with gas, as i was filling up this rather large dude drives into the pump in front of me bumps my car then starts getting all belligerent when i say that was kind of a rude move.
All 3 of my cars are covered in fender dings door dings strange scrape marks along the sides,probably have $1000 damage on each car due to other peoples carelessness, does nobody care anymore?
Like he did it on purpose just to be rude to you? It was an accident. Maybe this is a case of your brought it on yourself. You should of just stuck to the facts and checked out both cars and traded insurance info.

I'm with you. The older I get the more I dislike people. I was walking to home depot yesterday and some filthy old guy shoves a Reeses cup in his mouth and throws the orange wrapper on the ground, in clear sight, in front of me, like the world is his convenient garbage disposal. If I didn't feel like I'm getting the flu he would have gotten a word from me.

If someone bumped my car like that, you better believe he would get a word from me and pay to fix the scratch if so. Not long ago I walk to my car and some guy is LEANING on my car. I had no idea we had joint ownership of this car. Get your ass off it. I asked him to get off my car and he looked at me like I was crazy!! Damn people I don't wax my car so its clean for you to sit on and not get dirty.

End rant.

When you come across people in public, you cannot assume that they're on the "same page" in life as you are.

There will be individuals who care, and those who do not. That's life.

Steer clear of those who don't give a rip, and keep your mind focused on a higher purpose. They'll either catch up or sink.

In the end, it's nothing more than a nuisance - it doesn't affect who you are, and it shouldn't affect how you judge all people.

Really - some of us are pros - we should teach classes.

MightyQueen - good for you! That kind of attitude is one of the reasons I left NY - it's like that through all 5 boroughs and Westchester to boot.

Welcome to today's society - the product of generations of societal decay.

Not to worry, our actions aren't sustainable, and things are about to change, as hard as it will be.

Stupid oblivious people really **** me off too.

I particularly hate the ones in grocery stores that park their cart blocking the whole aisle while they spend 10 minutes trying to figure out what can of beans they want.

Seriously, how hard is it to make up your damn mind? Don't you have some idea what you want before you go to the store? Helloooooo?
