Rolling down the train platform at flushing main st station this morning and a rather rotund Chinese woman suddenly appeared dangerously close in front of me causing me to come to a screeching halt, being barely seven thirty am I said in a normal voice ”
excuse me” to which my rotund friend screamed FUCKING EXCUSE ME ? YOU NO SAY EXCUSE ME and the screaming about how dare I talk I talk to her continued for several minutes.
Now when I grew up if that happened the rotund woman would’ve said politely “oh I’m sorry didn’t see you” to which I would’ve replied ” no it’s quite alright” or some similar polite exchange.
It really wasn’t until the wheels under my ass became permanent that I realized just how animalistic society has become,I get all the usual responses like ” it’s Newyork get used to it” but as I have written before since when is geography an excuse for inhumanity?
Since the dawn of time country folk have said city folk were rude and mid town has accused uptown of a lack of couth and the apples five boroughs all each claim to be better than e other but sorry big apple not only when it comes to manners has the worm infested the apple the worm died and the Apple is putrefied.
Before my Aussie friends and London friends. All cry aloud “oh no would never happen here ” just because you have a sweeter accent doesn’t make the rudeness any more bearable.
wake up world isil and alqueda don’t have to take down our society from outside with a total lack of manners caring and compassion for one and another they can in short order simply buy the ruins at a garage sale!
