Do you ever find that you just can’t stand people and you don’t know why?! Yesterday when I stopped at the gas station, the same wanker that’s always in there was there once again… I don’t know what it is about this dude, but there is something about him that I just hate… He makes me want to punch his face in. I hate the smirk he always wears, I hate the way he wears his keys around his neck, I hate the way he never understands that I don’t want (or need) the fucking receipt, I hate the soft rock station he listens to every day, and… yeah, I just hate his personality and overall being!
That is horribly judgemental, mean, and unfair… I know… Since he is just a gas station attendant trying to do his job and get by. And not that I have anything against gas station attendants… Everybody has to earn a living. It’s nothing to do with the job, it’s just him!
Yesterday we had a conversation that went like this:
Me: (fakely and trying to force a smile) “hi, how are you today?”
Him: “Oh I Am GREAT! I am going on vacation after today.”
Me: “Beautiful. So today will be a good day!”
Him: “Yep. We rented a cottage on Lake Simcoe, all our stuff is packed.”
Me: (just wanting to pay for my car wash and get the fuck out of there) “nice.”
Me: “Just a car wash today”
Him: (pointing to and tapping the counter sign) “Well normally we charge $2 extra when you’re getting a car wash and no gas… But because i’m going on vacation and i’m feeling extra nice, i’ll give it to you at the gas purchase price.”
Me: (Gee how ever did I get so fucking lucky) “Oh… okay, sure thanks.”
Him: “Just try to remember to get your gas the next time so that you can save yourself from having to pay the extra $2.”
Me: (smiling under gritting teeth) “okay”
What I wanted to say: “Do I look like I give a flying fuck about saving TWO FUCKING DOLLARS you patronizing gas pumping prick?! Do you feel powerful now? Now that you’ve saved me a whole TWO DOLLARS… Am I supposed to feel grateful? Eternally thankful? Like you really went out of your way for me? Well I don’t… Frankly I don’t give a shit either way… Just give me my fucking wash code you smug wanker… And go have another Twinkie while you’re at it.”
I know… Not very nice right?! Trust me… This guy is just one of those guys that you will instantly HATE! It takes a special kind of person to have that affect on people. Tell me it’s not just me… Tell me that you know people like this too… Or even if you don’t know them and just the mere look at them makes you want to stab them repeatedly in the eyelid with a Bic ballpoint pen.
I’m gonna go do some yoga now and make myself a cup of tea… I can’t believe I wasted a blog entry talking about that waste of a human life!
