random acts of unkindness

i woke up this morning and went running and showered and put on a very cute new outfit to go to church. it's really bad that my decisions on which church service to go to depend on what i've got to wear. but anyway, i go outside and there's no air in one of my tires.

now, i know the tire was fine yesterday, and I aired it up and it's been fine since, so i'm guessing that someone let the air out of it to be funny. that's fucking annoying.

i just don't understand people sometimes. my car was vandalized really bad a few months ago and i never did find out who was responsible. did i do some dumb, annoying stuff as a kid? sure. we put toilet paper in people's trees at night, re-arranged garden gnomes, pulled signs out of yards and put them all in one yard. was it annoying? yes. but as much as I hate to be all, "kids these days..." I really can't relate to someone who'd fuck with cars for fun on the weekends.

there are people in the world who are just clinically insane, sure. evil murderers and abusers and all that. then there are normal people who I like to think are about like me. but the vandalism that goes on around here makes me think they're not like me, they're just shitheads who don't care.

i had a friend in college once who told me he never rewinded movies before returning them to the video store. I was like, "But then the next person who rents the movie has to wait before they can watch it, don't you think that's annoying?" He was like, "Whatever. fuck 'em."

He wasn't my friend anymore after that. Totally ruined my whole opinion of him. People criticized me for taking the situation too seriously but you know, someone's got to take something seriously in this world sometimes. There'd be a lot less assholes in every once in a while, someone would turn to them and say, "you know what? i'm done accepting the fact that you're an asshole. i'm done with you."
