Oddballs...

So on my last bike ride (and I promise this isn't going to turn into a bike riding blog) I ran across these four people coming out of the Frisbee Golf park.

Three guys, one girl. They all had their hair dyed weird colors. All the guys were wearing nothing but huge pants and chains. And two of the guys had their hair gelled into HUGE spikes. No biggie, really. I don't usually let people's appearances throw me. I know how good it feels to be different sometimes.

But.

As I was riding up to them, I heard two of them use the word "faggot." I hate that word. Then, they started yelling into the park. The one shouted to someone on the course, "Have you ever had your asshole licked by a fat man in an overcoat?" And the guy on the course just yells, "Only on the weekends."

Funny.

And then I rode by and the girl shouts, "Yeah, you work it, boy." And they all started shouting at me...dirty homosexual things that I couldn't really make out since I was riding away and they were all shouting at once. And I was sad.

I wasn't sad about what they said. I was sad for them. Here they are trying SO HARD to be different with their clothes and hair and piercings and tattoos, and yet...they're acting exactly as I would expect someone who looks like them to act. So really, when you get down to it, they're just as cookie-cutter as everyone else.

I wanted to ride back and tell them. But really, what good would it do? So I just kept riding, depriving them of a response, which I'm sure is what they were after.

Sometimes people are funny...

"Sometimes people are funny." If I were in your shoes I would have been much less charitable with my closing remark. I guess what I am trying to say is: "Justin, you are a wonderful and good person. Your reaction was, and is amazing. Good for you!"

No, not funny. Some people are stupid! :(

I am so sorry that happened to you. You reap what you sow. Their lives are going to be short, stupid and worthless. Waste of good organs.

@ human - Thanks. I just figured they're people who weren't raised to know any differently...

@ Mel - True. Very true.

@ Kathy - I'm a big girl, and, in the end, I know their lives are going to be sad once they realize finding a job with purple spiked hair and a bad attitude is REALLY hard.

@ jozey - Thanks for visiting! You're certainly welcome to hang around here as often as you'd like.

You did the right thing by ignoring these asswipes. They're not worth the time of day.

Well done for not rising to those a-holes, I bet that annoyed them but good!
