Morning. I’m a people watcher. I like observing their behaviours and the way some people don’t use simple common sense. I have a word for that, it’s called fuckwittery. Fuckwittery means you are a fuckwit, incapable of using the brains you were born with.
Exhibit A. I’m at the rail station this morning for my train to do some volunteering. I’m waiting for the train to come in. A lady, completely oblivious to the world, with her earphones in, is on the opposite platform. A member of staff tells her to cross to the opposite platform. He does this in a loud, but polite voice. Still the lady doesn’t hear. Eventually she takes the earphones out of her ears, and makes her way to the opposite platform.
The ungrateful nature of some people was rudely exhibited in the next few moments. The lady turned on the member of staff by saying “You shouldn’t talk to people like that!” If only she’d taken her earphones out and listened then the member of staff wouldn’t have raised his voice. As I said, it was polite but firm. No need for the rudeness that came back.
Of course, I couldn’t let that go without mention. I sympathised with the member of staff. Obviously the lady had a balanced view of things; she had a chip on both shoulders.
But just to illustrate the fuckwittery of people, the train coming in was front four coaches only. The member of staff made this eminently clear. What does the fuckwit lady do? Gets on the coach behind which isn’t on the front four coaches! Genius! Not only is she ignorant, deaf, rude and an arrogant fuckwit, she is also incredibly stupid as well. Has a lot going for her.
Just love observing this and shaking my head in disbelief at the sheer idiocy of some of the general public. Learning some manners might be on this lady’s agenda, but I won’t hold my breath.
