Dear Arrogant Prick at Bruggers Bagels and all the other arrogant pricks in the world,
In my Kingdom, there are a few types of people. There are the Royals, the Serfs and some variations on those themes.
In my Kingdom, we treat people with kindness and respect regardless of race, color, religion and socio-ecomomic standing. And for those in my Kingdom who don’t understand what that means, we treat EVERYONE with respect. Serf. Royals. It doesn’t matter.
In my Kingdom, you were standing in line in front of me, waiting to place your bagel order. My nose, eyes and ears burned due to your better-than superior attitude and flippant disregard for people and feelings, particularly towards the lovely young woman behind the counter who was unfortunate enough to have take your bagel order without a please or thank you and a horrible attitude. It was a disgusting display of arrogance. It’s people like you, with the manners of farm animals, that make me sick. Sadly, you aren’t an isolated incident. There are way too many of you flipping about.
In my Kingdom, I am putting into effect a new law. It’s very simply called…The Manners Law. You must say please and thank you to others. You must treat people with respect, at least to their faces and in public. Even if you feel like it might actually make your own face crack open. Even if it makes you feel like your going to spew vomit and blood.
If you are caught in my Kingdom without using your manners, you will be placed on a farm where you belong. With other pigs in a mud bath. With fat cows, chewing their cud. Donkeys, goats, sheep.
Although, you aren’t even in the same league with real farm animals because they are instinctual and really…not rude.
You, Mr. Arrogant Prick, and others that are like you…are just assholes I have to sadly share my Kingdom and my air with.
I think I ran into this person last December at Target, as I patiently waited for a parking space with my turn signal blinking. Along came he with the upturned nose and curly tail and all his little piglets in their big, shiny Swine Rover. As soon as the driver cleared the space I called as mine, Pig-Man gunned it and claimed the space as his own. When I waited for the Wild Boar to exit his vehicle so I could comment on his rude move, get this, he flipped me off! I’m not easily upset or moved to tears, but this Pig did it to me because I was shocked beyond speech that a man of his “social class” acted this way in front of his wife and children. All the money in the world can’t buy decency and character.

I always feel sorry for people who have to deal with the public in their jobs…just for this reason.
It’s a sad commentary on things when I stop by to pick up an ice tea and, when I reply, after the person at the counter greets me with a nice “how are you doing?” with a “Great…how about you?”, the counter person seems genuinely surprised and happy–as if no one else bothered to do more than snarl and order them around.

I was just thinking about this today. I’ve noticed this EVERYWHERE I go – what is the deal? It’s reached such epic porportions that even my teenage son notices it. Very sad and disturbing.

It seems like in the last few years people have gotten way more self centered. Whatever happened to the Golden Rule?

I hereby crown you, Brilliant Blogger.
Do you have any openings in your kingdom? Because I really want to move there. I always tell myself that these assholes must be all sad and broken inside and I should feel sorry for them, but I don’t. I just want to smack them.

People suck – they always have, and always will.
