As I’m standing in the shower, my senses come alive with the lovely fragrance that is Lavender Vanilla, from the Sleep Line, when I have a WTF a.k.a Epiphany! This WTF Moment was brought to you by Bath & Body Works! Yes I have those moments in the most random places at the most random times.
So I recall this mornings drive to work. I have my windows rolled up, the sunroof closed, the AC going, and Maxwell’s This Woman’s Work playing. I’m actually looking forward to my day when I smell something foul. My nasal passage was assaulted by the foul smell of cigarette smoke!
Why is it, that I’m in MY CAR, windows up, roof closed, but I can still smell your sh..! Last time I checked I can’t just go out pickup a gun and shoot somebody! So why oh why is it OKAY for people to give me CANCER. Why can people smoke in their car, on a sidewalk, outside the mall, anywhere as long as it’s not inside a public building or government building!? I think if you are IDIOT enough to smoke, then do it in your own blasted house! I don’t need to smell it, I don’t need to inhale it, no one should have to put up with that exposure! It’s not fair and I’m annoyed as hell about it!
How damn stupid do you have to be. It tells you on the box it has the potential of killing you! Do you hate yourself? Do you hate your family and loved ones? Smoking is selfish! I had to pull a Will and Martin and just WOOSAH! It usually doesn’t bother that much when I get a whiff of it in my car, but today was different. Something snapped inside me and I wanted to run that mothasucka off the road, light all the cigarettes he had and burn holes in his face! What!?
What kind of world do we live in where companies make things like this and get away with it! I’m beginning to wonder if companies are actually operated by human beings, beings who bleed the same blood as I do, eat the same food as I do, have family and friends like I do?! My next question is, do they actually sleep well at night and are proud of the day’s work they put in? Do they feel good for getting one more man, woman, child, and or teenager addicted and hooked. Do they rest well knowing they’ve shortened someone’s life? That they’ve killed and sentenced millions to a slow painful death? I know people make the conscious decision to try it and keep doing it, but why MAKE it in the first place? When will we learn that the “almighty dollar” isn’t all there is in this world of ours! What will it take, because the value of human life doesn’t seem to count for sh**! So somebody tell me, what does it take? While I await your answer I’m gonna WOOSAH in a corner somewhere!
