Waiting on a...
This will probably be a long rambling story that no one but me will read, but no matter, I need to write it anyway.
I don't see Tina that often. She is VERY random, and she sleeps in many different parks, shelters, tracks, etc... around this vicinity. But we know each other by name and by face, and she knows that if she needs something, she just needs to ask.
She told me that today was her birthday. I was waiting for the "Can I have $10" request that I have to guiltily deny. But instead, she asked me if I had ANY clothes that I could give her. A MacDonalds gift card. Anything like that. All I had was food and water, and hopefully that will keep her till Monday when I can bring more supplies.
Now the rant. As we were talking, some big beer gut scumbag drives up in his not very impressive Town Car, and impatiently motions for Tina as we are talking. He obviously couldn't wait for us to finish, because he drove off in a huff.
Dear Mr. Scumbag - I'm REALLY sorry I ruined your "Happy Ending" and the beginning of your weekend. Why don't you just go take care of business yourself, instead of having someone who has basically given up all hope and is just staying alive for one more fix, do it for you? Is that your only power trip in life, degrading someone further when you KNOW that they are that desperate? You, "sir", are truly a piece of shit.
I don't feel better as I write this. But I needed to say it, even if I'm the only one who reads it.
