I spent today at work making terrible decisions about how to implement (and test and debug) code. Also about how long to stay at work, since I left at 10:15. (Also about when to get to work, since I arrived at 2:15.)

I thought the day might have been starting kind of OK, though, based on the bus ride to work. Admittedly, it was spent with three teenagers who were judging people on their looks, including taking pictures with their phones, which seemed pretty ballsy given that one of them had a Justin Bieber haircut. But it was pretty well balanced out by having a driver who made sure that people getting on waited until other people got off; and who didn't start driving after a man with a walker got on until someone gave him a seat; and who paused to check on a man who stumbled and fell while getting off the bus. Even the teenagers started to get up to check on the man who fell. And there were two different women with babies in strollers (at two different times), and people made room for them, and the man sitting next to one of them made happy faces at the baby. It was kind of going to be OK.

And then at the mall, waiting in line to get lunch, I was joined by a woman and her ten year old boy (her son, or nephew, or legal guardian ward, or who knows), and he was wearing this T-shirt. Warning: not appropriate for work, or ever.

A ten year old. Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people?

Whee, aggressive misogyny for children, combined with vulgarity for bonus points! That's really remarkably offensive.

I really have nothing to say about that shirt except that because if I organized my thoughts into a coherent whole, the rant would consume the rest of the morning.

Yeah ... :(

(Also, I found your journal! Sad that you don't allow comments on the LJ version, though.)

I will be up in your area of the woods in a couple of months. May I deliver it in person and spare the hands?

I was going to correct you on who is the legal guardian of whom, but then I clicked through to the shirt and figured maybe you got it right.

No one who would wear a shirt like that should ever be allowed to be anyone's legal guardian.

But.... I'm sure he was wearing it ironically, because that would be ok, right?
