OH oh, my bipolar switch went off on the Canada Line. I’d just come from having a barium x-ray and I guess I was stressed out more then I thought. I boarded the train and it was pretty full, so I scanned the car for youth who might give up their seat to me.
There was a young man, 20-something, in a suit and tie who would peep up at me then quickly look down. I think he knew what I was after. I cocked my head back and motioned with it towards the youngman and the other youth beside him. I said, ‘Excuse me, but would any youth like to give up their seat to an elder?”. He did his peek and plonk ploy then said, “There’s lots of youth sitting down” in an angry tone. I asked him if he would “please give up his seat” and he rose sharply and told me I would have had a seat sooner if I hadn’t been so rude.
I said, “Rude? You mean asking if someone would please give up their seat is rude?”
He bolted for the next car and muttered something about me cocking my head. I grabbed his suit jacket and told him he was the rude one as should have given up his seat automatically. He yelled at me to not touch him and I yelled back that he was a rude little fuck up.
Then I sat there imagining I would see him again and say stuff like, “you arrogant little prick” or “don’t take your small penis frustrations out on me”. I imagined I followed him off the train to where he works and it turns out his boss is a friend of mine and I tell the friend what happened and the young prick gets fired. I thought that maybe I better say, “arrogant asshole” instead of prick.
Before I knew it my stop had come and when I disembarked he was no where to be seen. I think I’ll email Transit and ask them to do a whole ad campaign on giving your seat up to elders , people with children, people with disabilaties etc. I really really get tired of having to ask for a seat.
And that’s a second of a bipolar’s life.
While federal liberal leader, Michael Ignatieff rides the campaign bus around the country, the Conservatives have launched a series of Anti-Iggy tv ads. The thing is, they’re funny!!!
But it shouldn’t ruffle Iggy’s feathers, as his oft seen appearances on CBC’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” place him in self depracating comedic roles….you gotta hand it to the guy for that. Watch the video above for a ‘This Hour’ peek.
Just wondering how many in the United States military who are queer or bi will let it be known, now that the ‘don’t ask , don’t tell’ (don’t persue, don’t harass) era is over? It may still be too scary to be open, especially if you’re in Sara Palin’s cross hairs (which may be better then being in her pubic hairs). I don’t know if I’d say a peep, there’s still a lot of armed forces dudes who force themselves on military women, let alone what they’d do to a lesbian. A dyke friend was fucked up the ass during her brief U.S. Military service.
Hell, we’re getting fucked up the ass by just about everything these days, maybe it’s time to just carry lube around to ease the pain.
And do the Feds REALLY think this will work? And why don’t they just make the shit illegal as there are safe injection sites for illegal substances but smokers can now only go on the streets, several meters from a doorway. As a smoker, and a chimney at that, I say, ‘get on with something more important like getting the tobacco giants to take those 3,000 added chemicals out of our smokes and promote organic tobacco growth. Fuckers.
