Oblivitrons

I don't know why, but there are few things (well, probably more like several) in this world that get me as mad as this: When you're in a store, grocery or some sort of 'mart, and there's some oblivitron standing in the middle of an aisle with their cart pretty much blocking the whole aisle and the rest covered by their body. You politely slow down when nearing them, hoping they'll see you and move aside. But no. They never see you. They continue to be lost in the world of calorie comparison and stay the fuck put. You say "excuse me" and sometimes they comply. Sometimes they'll continue to ignore you and you either have the choice of angrily walking all the way around the aisle or pushin' on through. Of course the latter is more satisfying. Sometimes it's great to walk all the way around the aisle and come up on the other side of them, angrily grab the item you wanted and shoot them the "I"m going to cut your brakes" stare. It's really good when they know what that stare is for. Sometimes they don't because hey, they're oblivitrons; it's in their nature. It's not even like I'm ever in a hurry in a grocery store. I don't know what it is but I just can't friggin' stand these people.

When this happens to me, there is not enough ketamine in the universe to calm me. I see these people as everything that's wrong with the world. When people can't even go into a fucking grocery store and function properly, we have a problem. This may seem like such a trivial thing to get so worked up over but it's just little thing after little thing after little thing that I see every day of thoroughly idiotic people not being able to do the most basic of tasks. PEOPLE; I know it's very hard for you to do but PLEASE try to be aware of the things going on around you. Stop this mindlessly wandering around the city and life. It's a wonder and shame that you're even alive. —Minty Fingers
