Boor.  I love that word.  Trouble is, they're multiplying like rats:


 


 


GROWN-UPS SUCK!!!


 



Don't Panic.  I'm Dutch.


 


BOORS R US 


Take yesterday.  A cute broad in track shorts cut in front of my cart, causing me to jerk to a stop to avoid hitting her fat derriere in the canned goods aisle.  When I proceeded, she doubled back and cut me off again.  Her lanky, anemic skater boyfriend saw my annoyance then blasted me - "BIG DEAL!! SHE MADE YOU WAIT TWO SECONDS!!"


Hmmm..."Wait two seconds" ?? Huh??  It never occured to that dipstick that an "Excuse me" was in order. As in "Excuse us for putting you in the position of trying not to bruise my ladylove's bootie."  I dunno.  Maybe it's every bootie for itself? 


I pondered it anyway. Then it hit me.  Dipstick's idea of rudeness. Cutting off is ok, as long as you don't make the other person wait too long. 


So...lessee now...in order to qualify, rudeness merely has to be time-related?? 


Hmmm.. by that logic I can tailgate you two just car lengths at 60MPH but I'm not rude until you brake and the collision causes two extra hours on the northbound commute?? 


Now WHERE did Numbn#ts get THAT idea???!!


Then, today...I saw this.  BINGO.

Of course, it's CUTE to be rude, isn't it?  She's only three.  Aren't her little skull, fangs and leather cute?  Doesn't she look stylish, empowered and....marketable?



 


No wonder nobody flinches when a bratty world leader poos his pampers...

Maybe it is cel phones that turned us into a nation of drooling louts.


What about that pesky 19%?  "Um...Jesus died for you.  Can you please turn off your phones during Mass?"



 HELLO, JESUS HERE.  YUP, THERE'S A PURGATORY. 


AND YOU'RE GOING THERE NOW.  FOR CALLING ME DURING MASS.

I've opened the door to our local grocery store , stepped into threshold, had A PIG start in, stop cold, expect me to step back, stand aside, and let HIM pass through and proceed!!


RIIIIGHT... Like THAT'S gonna happen - 


EXCUSE ME, SIR.  YOU'VE JUST WALKED INTO MARLYB'S PERSONAL FATWAH TARANTULAH. 


HAVE A NICE DAY.

BOORS.  BOORS who slam their cart into your side.  BOORS who buy and sell people like cute little... piggy banks.


70 mill through the chute, slaughtered, packaged and sold - the redefinition of "Target."   Gee.  That one sure got quiet.


 


I BOUGHT SOME TOOTHPASTE.  WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO PERSONAL DATA COLLECT ME?

Somebody explain why the sandwich a BOOR ate at lunch is more important than how a BOOR treats his neighbor?


Is it because potentially 8,000 people will know about the BOOR's sandwich but the BOOR's neighbor is only one guy?


Or is it because neighborliness is...obsolete?

I dunno.  Maybe flagging economies and mass starvation, war, drought, wobbling climate patterns, mass colony die-offs, crop failures and dwindling resouces don't matter any more. 


Maybe society is boiling down to a flash mob promotional for a popular deodorant brand.

I was raised in a home with parents who were warm  and loving, but also firm in establishing guidelines,  limits, and expectations.  My children are being  raised in the same type of environment.


Today we live in a land overwhelmed by political correctness, that doesn't want to offend anyone. There are too many people with so little backbone to stand up when it comes to raising their kids with standards.  America is lacking a strong moral compass. Children who have no respect for their parents grow up to have no respect for other people.


Bump MarlyB and Kristine, I strongly believe that it is necessary to speak out to another person if they act disrespectful or boorish.

 I once spoke up against a boor once; that was the day I became non-existant in class except for on his roster .

cmmo7r, congrats. You distinguished yourself from the legions of quivering high school mice too cowed by authority to speak up against their meanie teachers for bothering them with homework!


 


On the other hand, you have Columbine, Virginia Tech and countless other 'notable' school shootings as a grim social barometer.

Parent:  Can't you please teach my child to behave?  He won't listen to us!


Teacher: No, Mrs. Smith.  My job is to teach children the subjects and to have civic responsibility.  Your job is to teach them manners.

Too true to all. I see kids every day that need a kick in the behind and parents also. Manners they are for someone else to teach

Yes, Elite.  Thereby affording me the feminine grace to nod as I pass, smile and thank him sincerely for his genuine chivalry. 


Meanwhile, single moms of only sons who can do no wrong are starting to wake up-  



That way, maybe Sonny will mow the lawn just because he loves you.  Maybe women who insist on a responsible gentleman for a husband will be attracted to him.  And maybe he'll write and call you when you are an old woman.  Or even visit.


Instead of drinking like a fish and living with you until you need a "care-giver."  And charging you $1.50 to make you a sandwich...

Actually it was more like college and instead of homework it was more him saying he was late because he was causing a hassle for a cop because he felt he was pulled over for "Driving a brand new Lexus while black".  After I found out fom him that he was driving though what was called "The D Streets" (all strets started with D) which is know for high drugs and prostitution, I told him we was pulled over because his car didn't belong without probable cause.

Whew, and an 'outlaw teacher' at that!  Stopped for driving a car that 'didn't belong'??  AND Tardy Arrival!  


Cm07r, just out of curiosity, wonder how long it took for your prof's 'probable cause' to evince while being a Lexus-drivin' Black man in that 'bad section of town?' 


Yours is a worthy subject - one future cops study hard.  My LE prof has assigned some homework on the pesky issue of racial profiling and police bias.


He recommends Racial Profiling : Research, Racism and Resistance by Karen S. Glover.  It covers Whren v United States and the Supreme Court, a 1999 ruling that permits the pretextual stop as long as probable cause is established - at some point in the continuum, however distant in time - as it will nearly always presens for any motorist.   States and jurisdictions vary.



Not that racial profiling is moot - just ask any motorist of color.  Just that now racial profiling of motorists is virtually impossible to show as long as probable cause is established.  And, of course, it always is.  So, Live Black.  Check your tail-lights before YOU  start your engine.


Why is my prof so up on the subject?  My prof is a brown man who is retired having served as a top-notch, top-ranking sheriff for some thirty years to include a lengthy term of service in IA.  Soooo...Far be it for me to challenge MY prof's complaint of having been stopped for "driving while brown" numerous times while a serving sheriff!


That would make me a TOTAL BOOR!  So, I let MY prof's anecdotes live.  ForJustice's sake.  And guess what?  Any cop worth his or her salt feels the same way.  Justice is what it's about. 


Can I get a witness, Friends?


Now...about your tinted windows, cmm07r.  LOL!
