I had thought....

.. that I had an assclown of the year award, but yesterday we had someone in who is definitely the assclown of all time. Even worse than an assclown, because even an assclown can have a redeeming quality or two, not this one. More details later.
I spent 9 years in retail management, worked as a waitress, and I've been in the animal care industry (a known attractant of squirrely people) for a long time. Hell, I'm a horse person (truly batshit people). But this last year I've seen the worst of the worst. And these are people who are freakin old enough to know better.
WTF is up with the lack of good sense and manners? Is it the reality TV shows with the highest ratings showing people being so abusive to one another?
Yes, I can go from zero to bitch in 3.5 seconds. On a good day I'm intimidating even without intending to be, mainly because I'm so damned blunt. You don't keep 1200 pounds of horse out of your lap by being charming. Still, I don't get shitty with someone who is:

Serving me food (even before I read The Stained Apron)

Getting ready to cut my hair

Going to take care of my child or pet.

WTF is it about Thursdays that bring in the worst people? Was Thursday named National Asshole Day without me being notified?


  1. Apparently they did't care about their pet enough to be nice to the person getting ready to give it care!

    I have notice too the lack of respect and decency these days. I think it is just a sign of the times.

  2. What gets me is that most of these are people who have been raised in an era where it was burned in your brain not to behave like this. I think that's what makes it more shocking to me.
