Just Another Sunday in the City

Encountered on Yonge Street:

Meth addict (to Patrick): Hey, man. Hey, can I talk to you for a second?

Patrick:
Sure.

* Jen thinks to herself: UUUUUGGGGHHH. *

Meth addict: Thanks, man. Thanks, man. There are so many assholes in this city. Anyway. I'm having the worst time. I just got out of jail today. I haven't eaten in a week. My Grandmother just died.

Jen: I'm really sorry but we can't help you today. Good luck and I hope things improve for you.

Jen: Pretty sure I said that as politely as I could have.

Patrick: Emily Post back there would disagree.

Jen: Fuck you.

Patrick: See? Rude. You're what's decaying this fine city. You and your sentence-interrupting ways.

I think that guy approached me a month ago. Same story. Same anger issues.

good ol Toronto!!

I know a quite girl who years ago said "I'm soryy" when solicited for $$. When the woman went off on her with "fuck you!" my friend responded "No, fuck you!! Do you have to worry about rent? Student loans? NO!! So FUCK YOU!!"

She was having an off day :)
