Random acts of verbal violence. I see them from time to time. Unfortunately when I do, it seems to hurt my brain. Why are some people a few sandwiches short of a picnic? One of Life’s strange riddles I suppose.
Working in radio has me coming and going at weird hours. While heading to work last night, I stopped to fill up on overpriced gas. While pumping my life savings away, I notice two people walking past me. One of them sees someone behind me and screams, “Hey man, how’s your diabetes!? Can you still feel your toes!?” He was yelling at an overweight employee who was just minding his own business. The poor bastard just stood there and took it like a prison bitch from Oz.
Just think about that for a minute. This “perpetrator” was walking down the street and basically verbally attacked someone for no reason whatsoever. Obviously the guy was either drunk or on drugs, but what goes through a person’s mind to make them go on a random act of verbal violence like that? I guess drugs and alcohol are steroids for the angry.
People are assholes. Happy Easter.
I never understood interventions. What’s the point of being told you drink too much from a room full of reasons why you drink in the first place?
