WHERE THE PRICKS ABOUND (ottawa)
Notice: until today there has been a pleasant shortage of pricks in my office as opposed to the rest of this 'government' town.
I'm so bloody sick of these pretentious assholes who think just because they wear a shirt and tie and have a 2X2 cube in a government office that they own this town, country and (specific to today's rant) ME.
As some of you may know we live in card key sealed office sections where I work. The funny thing is that you need a card key to get back in to your office section from the bathroom section. Stupid I know since there is no way into the bathroom section unless you've already gone through secure doors.
Anyway since the idea of swiping one's card is irritating for all if someone is approaching the door they will usually let you through as a friendly gesture.
TODAY... some late 20 early 30' something, was approaching the door. I was about to swipe but decided that he would just let me in like everyone else. NOT TO BE...
Well he did open the door and instead of holding it open, as is customary and civilized, he rushes through. I thank him for opening the door anyway. He then says with his little pretentious asshole smile (PAS) 'Do you have your card?'.
Keep in mind I don't know this guy but clearly if I was able to go to the bathroom I must have been able to access a secure area either directly or by being escorted by someone.
I replied to him quietly with my own PAS, 'Yes'
He repeated 'Excuse me do you have your card'
'YES_I DO!' I replied more forcefully in a F*&k off and die sort of way
'Well are you going to let me see it'
THAT WAS IT - without missing a step or turning around I just loudly reply
'I DON'T BELIEVE I NEED TO SHOW *YOU* ANYTHING'. and that was that.
My small fight agains Assohole Pricks in the office, across this assohole prick centred city and across country and world!
Come on... ask me again... I dare ya.... (next time I won't be so nice ie. "ok show me your badge as head of security or as a security officer, further demonstrate to me why you need to see my card and what legal authority you have to ask for it aside from you being a complete and utter pretentious asshole?)... yeah bring it on jackass.
