whatever whenever
standing up when no one else would
Today AM and I went to a suburban asian square and got some real ramen. It wasn't as good as it was in the city but it was good for its value. That's not the exciting part though. I don't mean that in a positive way either. Today I stood up for a lady that was getting harassed by her husband in public. He kept yelling at her while she was ignoring him and he grabbed her stuff from her and she started walking away while he was yelling at her to go back toward the car. Then I stepped in when the a*****e grabbed her arm and tugged down. I told him I'd call the police if I see that s**t again and he told me to mind my business because he was her husband. I hope I told him that that didn't matter an inch, I remember being puzzled because they were both so young, couldn't have been much older than AM and I. Anyway, I don't remember much past threatening to call the police. His wife got a head start in walking away and I wish I could have done more. I saw that a*****e in that square standing at a table next to where I was standing at the time. He saw me too and pointed me out to his friend. I got kinda neurotic but kept it under wraps so AM and I could enjoy our ramen. I feel like I could've enjoyed the day more, but I did the right thing and I don't regret that. I don't know, after dealing with my dad being the same type of a*****e, this scrawny douchebag riled me up pretty quick. I probably should have kept following but that a** looked like he would get violent. That's my fault, I shouldn't be such a p***y about standing up for someone at the cost of getting hit. Meanwhile, AM stood on the sidewalk like 50 feet away like a p***y. He said he gave that guy mean looks like it meant something. I don't know, I think I shouldn't judge him so much because out of the hundreds of people that passed by that lady, none of them stopped to tell that shitbag that's her husband off. In fact, I heard an old bitter a*****e laugh at me standing up against the husband when I turned back to AM and we walked back to the square. AM has revealed to me that he doesn't think people are stupid so much as they are cruel. I very much think that those two things go hand in hand. The dumber you are, the more capable of cruelty you tend to be. Before you go pointing at a finger at society's less hopeful killers, I can assure you that you can think like one and still want to live in peace. I faced all the things that would lead to the development of a killer and came out completely sane. I had/have the neurotic, obsessive, abusive parents, I've been introverted, I prefer autoerotic to actual activities, I'd had a weird history with small animals (not the mammals for some reason). Anyway, I could've had all the reasons in the world to throw my life away like that and I didn't because I have enough brains to want to live in peace. I'm still waiting for my karma payload...oh wait...no i'm not because I know I won't get anything in return for this and I still know that it's the right thing to do. sorry, I'm still very tired and pretty stressed out by that event.
