My SO has decided that he wants us to go from hosted wordpress to unhosted wordpress..  So, if there are some glitches this afternoon and evening, that’s why and you have my apologies..  There will also be a new look I’m sure, so keep an eye out! 🙂

Stupidity? Ignorance? Arrogance? Take your pick.

June 10, 2012

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it..  but I Hate stupidity..  & ignorance..  People who think they have the right in everything.

Yesterday, I was walking to the doctor’s office (she’s 3 blocks away) and I was standing to wait to cross the street..  now the intersection is a little odd..  one street runs E/W, the other on an angle running NE/SW. So, I am on the south side of the E/W street (let’s call it Lawrence) & ready to cross the NE/SW street (let’s call it Kingston), going west. Now the sidewalks aren’t the biggest, but they will handle 2 people wide & a bit. And a couple crossed Lawrence towards me, both pushing umbrella strollers. I take a step towards the curb (another would have puts me *on* the curb) and the guy says excuse me, expecting to get right the hell off the sidewalk. I had already moved to accommodate to make sure they have room, something that I didn’t have to do. The girl stops, expecting me to move further out of her way. When I don’t, cuz I don’t wanna step into traffic, she goes around me making a big huff about it.   The sidewalk was sufficiently wide enough for her to follow her guy in single file. just cuz they have a stroller, or rather 2, does not give them the right to Always have the entire sidewalk.  Ya know what I mean?

I hate when people are that ignorant or arrogant.. take your pick.. & this is in Canada where we’re supposed to be the polite people.. *sigh*.. We are getting less & less so..
