// warning: incoherent rant about to begin. //
location: shopping mall
scenario: sister and i are walking then we slow down while trying to decide whether to go left or right. i turn left, sister turns right; we aren't sure so we stammer for quite a while. after a couple of seconds of taking slow, uncertain steps, we decide to go left. then i see two girls, who were behind us all this while, stomp pass us and one makes a really loud "TSK" while the other one doesn't hold back with a "F*CK".
problem: really? is that necessary? i'll admit that i get irritated at times with people who walk really slowly, who can't decide which direction to go and who stand in my way. i'll even admit that i do let out a "tsk" once in a while when i'm really irritated under such circumstances. i'll also admit that i swear when i'm pissed off - i know it's a bad habit.
BUT to swear at someone who was walking slowly is, in my opinion, very uncalled for, rude and plain crude. it's not like it's a narrow corridor and there just isn't any space left for one to take a slight 'detour'. it's like driving - if you're in a hurry, then go ahead and overtake, but do it nicely. i suppose those girls were like some drivers who would flash their high beam lights or honk just cos they felt like they should.
i know it might have been slightly inconsiderate for my sister and i to have been walking slowly and uncertainly but is it wrong to not have eyes on the back of our heads and not have seen those girls behind us? was it wrong to take a slow walk so as to idle time? is it wrong to not wanna be in a rat race at all times?
it infuriates me to know that there are such rude and unreasonable people out there. people always advocate world peace and all that jazz. call me crazy but whatever happened to being c o u r t e o u s first people?
