Why aren't they extinct already ?

  • People who cut in line. Its absolutely ridiculous how often people do that. Yesterday I was in line buying my dinner dosa, this woman comes right up and sticks her oiled, mallippoo clad head in front of me and starts ordering her food. I was boring a hole right through her skull, when the guy at the counter said 'Madam, queue please'. She gave me a look and moved away. Lady, just 'coz you have a vagina doesn't mean you have the right to butt in like that !
  • People who drink water standing at the water fountain, not bothering to move and let the next person get a glass. If you have acquired your drink, please step aside so others might do the same. Otherwise, I will stamp your foot. Again. And again.
  • People who don't hold open doors for the people walking right behind them. And when I say walking behind them, I mean like a foot behind. How much extra effort does it take to open the door a bit wider than what is barely enough for your large ass ?
  • People with fake accents. Who in turn, make fun of my limited American accent. And make fun of the way I pronounce some hindi words. Dude, you can't even pronounce my entire name right ! Shut up and go away !

HEY! I have a vagina but I don't cut in line.

Non-door-holders bug the crap out of me. Also, people who have full, really loud, conversations on their cell phones in public. Agghhh!

Sour grapes

Just because you can't cut a line, make people behind you wait or slam doors, doesn’t mean they should be extinct

Wow. You got my list down almost exactly. Except I would swap the reluctant door-holders for...uhm...melodramatics.

Also people who think you have eyes at the back of your head and suddenly drive their bikes/scooters/cycles across the road. Die, damn you, die!!!!

Ya I hate that too, cutting lines is just not acceptable no matter who does it and in my experience it's the men who always seem to butt in, literally.. i mean 'stop trying to feel me up in the process, alright'. And what about all the staring till their eyes literally pop out.. Men should not be allowed to stare at women they do not know.. and maybe even ones they do?! Ufff

Neat blog.

ATTITUDE :), enjoyed the blog. Yeah I hate it when ppl cut in line ahead of me, mallipoo or not.

Mangs: Yeah, I tried to avoid the obvious. I had about 3 different things about 'driving' in Bangalore... but I think I'm just going to give up...

Minty: Ditto for celly-phuckers ! Way too many things to say about them !!

Jen: Glad you do ! And welcome !

Grrl: Yeah, and now that you are working out and all that... ;)

Anon: I don't need a reason to wish people were extinct, ya know. Like you for example !! :P

AoA: Hmm.. melodramatics... hmmmm...

eM: Im not sure I get that, but I do agree with the general sentiment though!

Jay: Umm... yeah... wel... what can I say, I'm a giver :))

Lavi: Yeah, but this particular instance was a woman. I agree that men do that more often. Not the feeling up part though...

Mandar: Well, its fun though, ain't it ?

Ratsy: If by Ho Hum, you mean, tear that poooo off thier heads, then yes, I comply ! ;)

Anumita: Thanks and welcome !! Yeah, we meed to get some kinda weedicide or something !!

R: Does that mean I have attitude or was it something like 'the attitude of some people, I say' ??!? :))

I have been censured of late for making single-point generalizations, so my rant is specific: I did NOT think too kindly towards this rather hot-looking girl at the next table at the local Barista who was having a long, loud phone conversation in a pseudo-firang accent (which was rendered more irritating by the mispronunciation of some words), with each sentence punctuated with unladylike words. No Mallipoo, either.

yeah!!! and dont you just HATE it when they dont SEE that their accent is SO obviously Fake!! God!!! i cant stand them!!!
there was this kid i saw in this store while i was shopping... his mom and dad had this reallly thick indian accent and the kid had this MOST adorable british accent.. you could SO tell it was real.lol... i went home "coochie coo-ing " in my head...... sigh.

i think we shud rework on getting our lessons on manners at school right.
Door opening , if there is one person in front of me who holds the door for me also to pass , i instantly add a whole lot of brownie points to him or her.
another commonly noticed phenomnon - ppl descending/ascending stairs - no one letz the other one pass....
thatz when i adore the all polite West - i mean it doesnt hurt to be well mannered? does it?

 
At June 06, 2005 11:03 PM, Blogger jax said...

I totally agree

...and add to that list groups of people who contine speaking in their native tongue when an outsider joins them.

man, eagerly awaiting your weekend-rollercoaster post! vig-arious pleasures :D

Senthil: Yes, I would have smacked her. After I asked her out ;)

Swathi: The west, hmmm. They like this kinda stuff, I agree, but then again, there are tons of other things that would be a problem if transplanted without thought !

Jax: Aaahh.. this weekend, was... ummm... interesting. I will put up a nice cryptic post about it soon enough... can't make things too obvious now can we ;)

My 2 paise as well

1) People who go ''tch tch'' in a crowded Mumbai local everytime someone brushes against them. Will someone explain to these asswipes that getting brushed against someone in a Mumbai local is as natural as crapping in the morning ?

2) Parents who tag along their brats to movie halls and dont think twice about chattering away to glory. Hello ? leave your kids at home if you have come to watch ''Black'' or better still rent a DVD.

3) More on the movie front - People who turn up late for a movie or a play and saunter in as if they walking in a bloomin' Parisian street !!

4) Has someone found a way to stuff mobile phones up people's asses ? Oh yes...guess thats why they are being made smaller and smaller by the day...

Hoo Boy...that was a relief.

PS:Read about Sir Mix a lot's epic 'Baby's got back' in an earlier post. Heard it as a teen over and over again...Probably the only time I must have rued the fact that I am an Indian and not a ''Nigga from the hood with dem Biatches''.

What about those who are laughing to death as you arrive,continue to laugh for several minutes and never bother to explain the joke to you, as you stare at them,not knowing what to do?
And the ones that leave the table,taking their empty plates to the kitchen,pass by your empty plate,and never bother to pick up yours ,or at least ask you?
And those who never let you finish a sentence?
And those that would race you as you signal left/right,not leaving any space for you to move to,and causing you to miss your exit?
And the list is endless.......:^(
