It is not often I find things to moan about, it just looks that way by how often I post but today I came across something that I figured was worth writing about.
So today I was in the local town picking up a few things I needed where I came across a woman who was with her child. Now there is not much you can say about that but after I picked some things up, I then went up to the local library so I could pass a few hours until the next bus comes so I can go home where this woman and her child once again turns up.
So I then go to sit down on the only computer left in the library where the woman quickly rushes up to me and say:
Oh excuse me but I am very sorry about annoying you like this.
At which point she then just stood there. Not being a dick I decided it may be worth listening to what she has to say and she then went on to say how she wants me to get off the PC so her child could use it while she relaxed for a bit reading a book. While again there is no harm in asking, surely if I said no she would respect my wishes and then wait for another computer.
Oh, you were expecting a yes for that?
Oh right, you also knew it was no else this would be a boring rant. Well, what happened is I politely turned around and said sorry but I am in need to use this computer. Well it was at this point she turned … well, it may be better just to look at the image below as I am sure that will give you a better idea of what happened.
Yep, she got that pissed she morphed into a demon-like version of herself with her right horn becoming a bit dodgy which has nothing to do with a crap mouse being used but back to the rant. This woman at this point now started to yell loudly saying that I was purposely annoying her and that whatever I am doing and I quote this exactly.
WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU ARE GOING TO DO CAN WAIT UNTIL MY SON HAS BEEN ONLINE AND PLAYED SOME GAMES. WHAT ARE YOU A FUCKING USELESS BIT OF SHIT THAT YOU HAVE TO ANNOY ME AND MY BOY BECAUSE YOU ROLLED AWAY FROM THE SHIT THAT YOU ARE.
SO WHAT THE FUCK IS IT. WHAT IS THE FUCKIING SHITTY REASON FOR YOU TO FUCKING ANNOY MY DAY. YOU HAVE TO GET OFF THAT BOX AND LET MY BOY ON IT.
Now someone swearing at me in public is not new and often they do it to hope that and not have attention pointing at me, I will instead back down and let her child use the computer. Well, the nice way of putting it was she was wrong. So thinking of an answer I decided to ask her why I should let her child use the computer and more importantly what right he had over me to use the computer.
Having hoped she might have come to her senses, she went to say “she had all the fucking right” to do so because she is a mother who is with her child and that people have to give up things for them. After she had said that she then went into a ranting mode yelling that everyone is “the fucking same” and that no one doing anything more important than her.
So the end of it I decided to ask another question – why is your child usage more important than anyone else. I then went on to say why I can understand that it is always oneself before someone else, but that does not mean that someone has to give up a computer for her. She went on to say that her reasoning for being more important is because she had a child and no one else using a computer does not and thus that she has to become first and yes, she used the word has.
Now having hearing someone laugh near me, she then went on to say that everyone in there was “fucking low lives” who has no future and then went to pull her child out of the library when he was trying to read a book – surely something that was keeping him quiet.
So I ask you a lot this question. Why should mothers with children be more important than someone who does not have a child?
Or is this an ego thing? Sure I can see in some cases where it may pose a danger to a child-like giving up a seat on a crowded bus to a child but why do some parents make their child everyone else problem when it is not.
Need to quote me?
