Tainted


Easter Church
The woman who ruined our Easter. I attended the 9:30 mass at Our Lady of Alabaster Church on Easter morning. Our family arrived early so we could get the best seats up front. One of the families had brought along a woman in the wheelchair, who was taking up the entire aisle. I politely pushed her out of the way so my sons could get by and she overreacted, banging into a pew, rolling down a small set of stairs, and smashing through a beautiful flower arrangement my 86-year-old mother had created for the service. She then proceeded to lay on the floor, bleeding and howling like a child. Not only that, but she outright refused to pay my mother to make up for the time and effort she had wasted. Is this any way for a so-called Christian to behave? Shame on you.

Dennys
The young woman who apologized for her rude behavior by paying for my lunch at the Denny’s family restaurant in Oak Grove (I think your name was Wendy). Outside in the parking lot when you cut my van off by pulling rudely into a parking spot ahead of me, I was angry, but you made up for it with your kindness and selflessness. It takes a big person to admit they were wrong, and you ma’am are a good person. Still, I sort wish I had waited until after lunch to decide to hurl that ashtray through your windshield, stab your tires with a pen, and scratch “SLUT” into each of your doors with my key while you were inside thinking up a way to make things right. Live and learn I suppose.

Tainted

Old Man Roof
The young man who was outside the Cub Foods grocery store when my grandfather fell off the roof on March 8th. Not only did you chuckle and step over his body, but you came back to steal his wallet as he lay there groaning and covered in blood. I put down my hockey stick, took off my top hat, and shouted at you from the roof, but you pretended not to hear me. You should not have done this, as my grandfather owes me 78 dollars and now I am probably never going to get it back.

ATM Machine
Richard Hatcher, the man who used the ATM before I did at the gas station on 14th Street and Pine. You made a mistake when doing your deposit. I suppose you didn’t insert the envelope properly or something, because it was stuck in the slot. In any case, when I went to make my own deposit, your envelope went through instead of mine. So anyway, thanks very much for the 460 dollars, it really helps. By the way, you also probably shouldn’t have left that change of address slip with your PIN number (4328) and account number (3002468691114378) along with your mother’s maiden name (Smithe) on the counter either. Just a helpful hint.

Drugstore Clerk
The cashier at the Wallgreens Drug store in Waukegan. You failed to give me a receipt, and when I pointed out that I would be owed 5 dollars due to a store policy which stated as much, you had the gall to tell me that there was “No such policy.” I pointed out the sign just behind you and said “Then you had better take down that sign!” at which point he turned and looked puzzled, reading it aloud, “Customer Must Show ID for All Tobacco Products, It’s the Law”. I realize I was wrong, but there was no need to humiliate me in front of all the other customers. Being an 48-year-old illiterate mother of six isn’t easy, and you certainly didn’t make it any easier.

Dead Dog
The person (or persons) who ran over my son’s obnoxious dog Ruffie in the street yesterday. I never liked that dog.
