Surrounded by morons with a sense of entitlement.*

I am sometimes left to wonder what happened to common sense and common courtesy. Yes, the irony of a lawyer posing this question is not lost upon me. But my God, people in this town are so freaking self-absorbed it's astounding.

It is not uncommon for me to pull into my parking garage behind someone who has a magnetic parking pass, like me, which for some reason is not making the gate open. They will sit there and wave it around in their windshield like the sensor fell asleep on the job or just isn't paying attention. Then, and this is my favorite, they'll start to back up as if to give the sensor on more chance. Now, folks, I'm in a car, a solid metallic object, directly behind this moron, and usually someone else is behind me. This defect has the nerve to glare at me, as if I am Mr. Wizard and have the ability to dissipate the molecules of my car or transport it away using just the sheer power of my mind...well, okay, I can do that, but I'm not gonna for that fucker.. Ultimately, I just roll down my window and scream "JUST TAKE A TICKET YOU DUMBASS!!!!"

Tonight, as I was leaving, a guy stopped in the driveway to light a cigarette...and just *stood* there. I was so amazed I didn't know what to do for a moment but then I remembered I'm a bitch and I have a car with a very loud horn.

I work in what my superlawyerboyfriend calls "the habitrail" -- in Peachtree Center in one of those buildings connected by the skywalks. It never fucking fails - invariably, I will be walking in the tunnel, always keeping to the right, and row of people taking up the entire width of the tunnel will be walking directly toward me...and no one is moving to get out of the way. It doesn't matter where I go; I'm still gonna run into someone. And yet again these bastards have the nerve to look at me as if I can teleport through walls or make myself permeable like Shadowcat (a shout out for those of you who got that reference).

Admittedly, I am an angry woman with issues and a low threshold for hostility. Damnit. But GOD DAMN PEOPLE.... Didn't your mama teach you *any* manners at all?

*I will refrain from commenting on psychotic drivers in Atlanta as I am dating one.

Ooo...this is where being 6'2" comes in very handy. When said wall of people are approaching me I just stare down at them and say "get the fuck out of my way." One of them always moves.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Damn I like your fiestiness. Speak up at them the way you did here. And for the record what is manners anymore. I think tney left when we grew up. Its like the kids who dont go outside to play anymore, they stay inside and let mom and dad do it all. Or the ones who let mom and dad pay for everything. They dont know what is right and wrong nowadays. Speak up and look and say hey ya know IM comin and I am not moving. Give them the glare you have for your opponents. Keep your chin high and dont ever look away from them assholes. Thank GOd I live in a smalltown but manners are manners.

Life is what you make it. Find your dreams

It constantly amazes me that people are no longer taught to travel or pass on the right. That's why everything from driving to navigating a crowd is impossible here. Well, very difficult. They do hold doors, though, so go figure.

This is one of my pet peeves. I am always the one who has to step off the sidewalk so a group of people who take up the whole sidewalk can pass. I have had incidences where I am driving home just as school gets out and I don't know how many times I have had to stop because a group of kids, old enough to know better is taking up the entire street. This also happened on my street, almost in front of my house. If you honk or say anything, they look at you as if it is their fault.
