Most of the time I am blissfully isolated from the general public. I think it is safer for both me and the general public that way. Usually my job entails dealing with very few people directly and the only scary part is avoiding the crazies on the road. I will admit the scary people on the road seem to be multiplying by leaps and bounds these days though.
This week however as I fill in for a co-worker who is vacationing I am forced to directly interact with the unwashed masses AND there is no hiding who I am or who I am working for. Damn.
It takes a lot of effort let me tell you. I have to put myself into passive mode and channel my inner old guy around a young Woman attitude. Another words pander to them to the point of being sickening.
The one saving feature is I still have a bit of a filter in place since pretty much any customer I am forced to deal with must have income or money of some kind. This filter isn't fool proof however because many crazies still manage to get through.
What I find truly scary though is how many obviously mentally ill people out there seem to have money for new cars AND are issued drivers licenses.
Take this morning. There was a young Woman who sat in the waiting room talking to herself for three hours. Occasionally she would even piss herself off and yell "shut up". She wasn't too far removed from a middle aged Man who proceeded to wet himself at least once for sure. The mechanic who worked on the Man's car had to pull the thing outside his bay and refused to get inside it until it was sent to detail and completely cleaned.
This little slice of human reality was all before noon I might add. I could go on for paragraphs from this week alone about all the crazies that have come through the door.
Yet each of these people that I wouldn't trust with a nerf football drove away into heavy traffic after paying their bill. I bet they are also registered Democrats too.
We are so Friggin screwed.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!!!
