This is an occasion people. Not only am I public transporting. I’m taking a bus AND on a weekend. #craziness #gettingitdone #work
Everyone should go watch Pitbulls and Parolees tonight at 10/9c on Animal Planet. Animal Planet will be donating $.10 for every view the show gets. What Tia and her family has done for these animals is truly amazing. This show will honestly melt your heart once you start watching it.
People have STRONG opinions about people being shitty on airplanes/public transportation, so I think they turned their brains off and rooted for the guy because they want to be that guy who confronts the asshole. He ceded the high ground when he told her to drink the wine and shut up, exacerbating the whole situation. Never mind the fact that she was wearing a medical mask and we (as bystanders) have no idea why she’s wearing a medical mask. If you’re going to confront her, do so while giving her some leeway with whatever she might be dealing with. And don’t cause a bigger mess for the airplane staff to deal with.
A commenter in the storify (I know) said she was dying from cancer, and if that’s true, he’s much shittier than he looks, but regardless, he’s terrible. There’s also a rumor that he made up the whole thing, which would also be terrible. He’s terrible in every possible outcome.
Oh, and he’s a producer for The Bachelor.
I so agree with all of this. Even stated as he did, the things she was saying were kind of off. Like she was overly stressed about something else (like maybe dying, seeing her family for what could be the last time) or she was otherwise physically or mentally off. And also, how many people have NOT freaked out unnecessarily or overreacted to the wrong thing? You said no? You are a horrible liar. It is human nature to displace serious emotion onto less serious things. Or to overreact to something that is small in the grand scheme because it is the LAST thing that you can take.
I don’t know. The guy might have been funny at first. But, he was like a comedian making fun of a fat drunk heckler. Anyone could do it. He came out TOO HARD at TOO EASY of a target. An older, stressed out woman with maybe a medical mask. He did not know when to stop because he was egged on by the other kids in the yard (Twitter). I think he is horrible and a big bully who I would like to see confront someone his own size who is not in such a vulnerable position and in a caged environment. He had a captive audience and victim. He is a bully and a pussy.
It is one thing to stand up against a person harassing a staff member or someone weaker, but the flight staff is fully capable of dealing with assholes- uh- they dealt with him. And they are used to dealing with people upset over delays. It happens all the time. This guy is not (suck it HuffPo) any kind of hero and if you think so, you need a reality check, a backbone and some fucking compassion.
And, as stated above, which might be the most revealing fact of ALL: “he’s a producer for The Bachelor,” so he is used to playing with weakminded and insecure people. Great job dick. Hope you had a great holiday. I am thankful this holiday that I will never know you.
The Gentle Barn has a bunch of turkeys saved from becoming food. They are big, beautiful and smart (some silly) birds and they get tons of love now. They return the love with their big personalities and general sweetness. Here are just a few and how to sponsor them for almost nothing!
These are Sir Francis (Sir Fancy Pants) and pretty girl Rama….
me and the crew
Bet these people never have to use their heat. :) So much adorable.
Animal planet is going to donate money to the Villalobos rescue shelter. So everyone need to watch the new episode next saturday at 10/9c!
(gonna tag for more exposure)
So I work at a pet hospital, and we got a sick chameleon today that we had to treat. Needless to say we got a little attached to her and named her Susan. Her pillow was a cotton ball, her blankets were gauze squares and her head-warmer was a top of a glove filled with water. :)
GET WELL SOON SUSAN
Oh Susan. Stay away from the tequila.
Just a friendly reminder to not put your change in the red buckets this year!
“The Salvation Army doesn’t believe that gays and lesbians should ever know the intimacy of any loving relationship, instead teaching that ‘Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life.’" - (source)
“Salvation Army Major: LGBT People Should Be Put to Death" - (source)
“The Salvation Army openly says that ‘practicing homosexuals’ aren’t welcome in their organization and they have lobbyists in D.C. and abroad who work to prevent gay rights legislation from being enacted." - (source)
“The Salvation Army does not only discriminate against gay and lesbian people, it also works politically against LGBT rights all over the world." - (source)
Spread the Word!
So while some of your nickels and pennies are going to hunger relief or “Christmas Assistance” just know that a large portion of your donation is going toward lobbying governments worldwide for anti-gay policies - including an attempt to make consensual gay sex illegal.
Thanks for your time! Please inform your friends and family, to help signal boost this message!
