Rude People

by Al

I try not to eat doughnuts on weekdays, but since it’s Labor Day, and I have the day off, I decided to treat it like a weekend day and made a trip to my local Dunkin’ Donuts.

Today, I drove into the drive-thru and pulled up behind a woman, probably in her mid to late forties, placing her order.  As is often the case, it was a large order and every item was customized.  I’ve never understood why people with complex, special orders can’t just go into the store to place their orders instead of slowing down the line for the rest of us while their orders prepared.  It’s just rude.

But the rudeness didn’t stop there.

After placing her order, she pulled up to the drive-thru window and while waiting for the order to be prepared, took a half full McDonald’s shake and proceeded to pour the gooey, disgusting, congealed mess out of the drivers side window and onto the pavement below.

What the hell is wrong with people.  Granted, it will eventually wash away, but in the meantime every car going through the drive-thru will be splashing it on to their cars and tracking the sticky mess all over the pavement.   On top of that, the workers at the drive-thru window will have to put up with the smell of souring dairy product as the day goes on.

Two questions:

How does a middle aged women go through life thinking the world is her personal garbage can?

Even if she doesn’t give a damn about dumping her crap outside for environmental reasons, is she not the least bit ashamed that people who view her actions will think of her as nothing but a slovenly, disgusting pig?

My guess is she doesn’t even have a clue she did something wrong.  Her parents were probably pigs and I’m sure shes raising her children as pigs.

I know, I’m probably being a little harsh, but this sort of thing just drives me crazy.
