I swear people are making a conscious effort to piss me off.
See, I just wasted 50 minutes of my life. I was supposed to meet a couple people in the library at 9:15 to discuss a TRF project, but...I waited until 9:45, and neither one of them showed up.
They. Both. Forgot.
Now, here's the fun part: I was waiting by the back entrance, and during the time I stood there, I watched two...not one, but two people needlessly use the automatic door opener. You know those big blue buttons that say "Push to operate door" and have a picture of a wheelchair on them? Two people with perfectly functional legs still felt the need to use it.
But that's still not the best part.
A couple minutes before I left, a guy in a wheelchair came in. And he opened the door...with his hand.
Let's review...two non-handicapped people used the handicapped door opener, and one guy in a wheelchair opened the door the regular way.
...I keep thinking someone's going to let me in on the inside joke I've been watching for 20 years...but then I remember that humanity really is fucked up to the point of being surreal.
All right, now I think I'm in a parallel universe. I was just down in the laundry room, and after I had waited about 20 minutes for a machine to open up, a girl and a guy came down to get their stuff out of the washers. The girl, upon opening the machine, proceeded to exclaim the following (not verbatim, but close):
"Aaaah! No! I don't believe it! MotherFUCKER! They're soaking wet! That's the second time this has happened to me this semester!"
Since when is it a shock that washing machines make clothing wet?!
...If I go outside tomorrow and see people wearing hats on their feet and shoes on their heads, I probably won't even be surprised.Posted by CD on April 17, 2005 09:58 PM
