Is society becoming more and more stupid?
Today I had reinforced to me why I normally don’t go to Wal-Mart. The truly clueless in our society seem to be there in droves! Unfortunately, I had to pick up some special order contacts that for whatever reason could only be mailed to an optometrist. I figured it would be just a 2 minute grab and go so I didn’t take my usual far corner of the parking lot. As I’m leaving I look out to the car and there’s this idiot woman dragging her bags across the hood of my car. She couldn’t get between her 80’s POS minivan and my car, so rather than walk around her car she drags the bags across my car’s nose. I run out to the car, but it’s too late deep gouges and scratches across my hood. Of course I’m infuriated and I yell at the woman. She looks at me like I’m crazy and says, “You shouldn’t have a car like that anyway”. I couldn’t believe it and am still stunned that there are people walking around that stupid. The woman became even more belligerent so I called the police. The police couldn’t do anything, but file a report. With Florida’s “stand your ground” law and all this Treyvon Martin stuff going on I wonder if I could have shot the woman? I don’t mean to make light of the Treyvon Martin tragedy, but we’ve got to find a way to rid the planet of complete and total morons like this Wal-Mart woman! BTW when the police got there she denied everything that she had previously admitted to me.
