Rononvan's Weekly Haiku Challenge

Irate and Amused…

Ronovan’s prompt for this week ‘amused & irate,’ reminds me of a recent episode at the airport where one lady started throwing temper tantrums when she wasn’t allowed to pass customs and immigration with some items in her back pack.

These days, it seems people are just ready to get into a squabble at the drop of a hat and on FaceBook you wonder if most of these folks who attack total strangers with their virulent words have lost their minds?

The angry lady became irate,

her curses, slurs and loud nasty behaviour

left us unamused and irritated.

  1. On point. Way too many Drama Queens and kings. As my Dad used to say, “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.” The Airport staff are just doing their jobs. It’s best to go along with the program, cooperate and make life easier and smoother for everyone.

    I can relate to this story because as a museum guard especially mostly when I worked days visitors would get highly upset because they could not bring certain items into the museum. Museums have rules and regulations for the protection of people and the artworks. Believe me I’ve seen some of everything, witnessed and been the object of all types of rude nasty behavior and I’ve been called everything but a child of God. I’m glad I now work nights. Less interaction with the public.

      1. As one of my former day shift supervisors said, A sense of entitlement. Meaning that the rules don’t apply to me. In the case of the museum which is located in a very rich wealthy upper class neighborhood bad behavior is excused as being eccentric. Private schools, million dollar doorman apartments, trust fund babies, nannies, the money is no object crowd.

        Well to do people get away with murder because they know they won’t be held accountable. Believe me in my first 8 years of working days I saw every type of rude obnoxious stupid foolish behavior you can think of. This is part of the reason that I now work nights. Very little contact with the general public who are morons.


  2. I don’t understand why people become so irate so easily, Anger management problems, indeed. People are shooting each other due to road rage and parking lot rage. It’s a very concerning trend.
