Moments like this make me miss an office job. Moments when people are unnecessarily rude, obnoxious, power hungry. Seriously. At least in an office setting people have to keep their real personalities – or lack their of – subdued or contend with the veiled threat of Human Resources.
I guess I could have told the person to sit on my thumb or bite down on my dog’s dookie dropping, but that would require too much effort and contact.
So, what to do with rude people? Simply ignore them. Look at that dookie biter Rep. Joe Wilson? He has raised more than $2M to date from other rude people. If he would have just been ignored, he would have just been known as the rude racist.
Others that should be ignored: waiters that forget you exist; laundromat attendants with a chip on their shoulder; Ahmadinejad and anyone else who ignores the Holocaust; crazy people, seriously if you get in a fight with a crazy person then you are just as crazy (Bush vs. Hussein).
No fighting. No yelling. Just silence. You, rude lady on a power trip that raised her voice at me unnecessarily in front of a large group of people, will be dismissed. Until this evening when I throw a flaming paper bag filled with dog shit at your establishment.
