Today I went to get an ID card.
I was not prepared for what I experienced.
I thought that by going at 7:30 in the morning I'd avoid the crowds and the long lines.
I hate it when I act all smart.
So I'm standing in line for 15 minutes, and then the largest old lady you can imagine comes up and tries to push me out of line!
I am being 100% serious.
"Excuse me, Ma'am! You need to stand at the end of the line! Ma'am! Please stop pushing me!"
"Oh, but I am an elderly lady," lady, indeed!
"and I have been here for a long time, just get out of my way!"
Please note that she and I were basically wrestling all through our pleasant little conversation.
"I said NO. I have to get to class after this! I will NOT be late because of you! Please, go away!"
Yeah. I said that to an old lady (while trying to pin her down. She is one strong mama.)
Don't give me that look! She was fucking asking for it.
And it worked, she went away.
Only to be followed by another (less violent) old lady.
What is it with the elderly and lines!? Why don't they just respect and follow rules!?
Here is a message to all old people:
No. I will not pity you.
Just because you're older, it does not mean you are all of a sudden above the rules that we common mortals must live by.
And no. I don't enjoy being mean to old people.
It was just this one time, I swear!
P.S: I know I promised you a "What I like about Saudi Arabia! Yaay!" rainbows and butterlies post, so sorry if anyone's disappointed. I'll do it next post! (Or... I'll try real hard to!)
