One Fine Day At The Broad & John Bus Stop

So anyway, I was standing at a bus stop waiting for the northbound Park Avenue bus. I was standing to the left of the bench/shelter and there was a guy about my age, or maybe a little younger, sitting on the bench and eating something out of a plastic bowl -- the kind you get with a small side of macaroni or potato salad at the supermarket's deli counter.

As I stood there awaiting the arrival of the bus, he chucked the plastic container into the middle of John Street. That's right, just flung it out side-armed as non-challantly as if he were tossing bread bits to pigeons or seagulls in a park or a parking lot somewhere. It scraped acroos the pavement and settled under the rear driver's side tire of a truck in the far lane.

This was followed almost immediately by the fork or spoon or spork that he was using. It settled in the middle of the near lane. He rubbed his hands together with satisfaction, leaning forward with his elbows on his knees, as he finished chewing the last of the side dish as he glanced up the street awaiting his bus. He seemed completely oblivious to the fact that what he'd just done was supremely wanton, unlawful and thoroughly, enragingly obnoxious.

"Dude," I said with alot more restraint than I wanted to. "That's disgusting." He never even looked back me.

My bus arrived a few minutes later and, thankfully, he was waiting for a different bus than I was. I hope I never have to see that @#$%ing, @#$%ing @#$%er and his @#$%ing, @#$%ible sense of propriety again.

Some of you may believe that God regularly tests our faith in God. In my experience, God's a lot more busy testing our faith in humanity. I'm jus' sayin' is all.

This is one of those classic "What is wrong with people?" scenarios....
