Dedicated to the assholes of this world, who stop you in your tracks.

Heading home after work. It's pouring with rain, I'm damp, tired, and just looking forward to getting into my comfies(soft lounge clothes) at home, and cozying up to the fire.
I'm a few blocks away, and this stranger stops me in my tracks to say, "You look tired. You should smile cuz there's no reason to be sad." Just when I start actually thinking I might be too serious and don't have a sense of humor, I realize I actually do. That, and quick smart ass answers, that leave those that fueled me to do it, realize that they are the annoying assholes of this world.
"Fuck off! If all drivers had a huge smile plastered on their face, you'd think they were insanely scary or look ridiculous. Stop pissing strangers off by telling them what to do, and if you need to see everyone smile, go see a performance with only clowns in it. Would you still tell me to smile if I told you a close friend just died?"
