Our water bill increased another 8%. We called 'em up given we were encouraged to call with any questions or concerns about the increase. It was the usual bullshit politically correct speaking mantra these people are brainwashed into spewing to a concerned public. Their monkey speak this time: "The city authorized the increase."
"I am the city. I didn't approve of this."
"The city authorized the increase."
Don't you have anything else on your little script to offer me?
Oh yes, costs are up. Boo fucking hoo. For once, eat the costs instead of passing them onto the consumer, especially in an economic depression. What the fuck is wrong with you people?
Oh, that's right. You have no conscience. Your soul has been sucked away by years of supporting the system. Your heart completely shut off to any sense of decency and fairness. Kindness. Understanding.
A person at a local business told us to conserve more upon hearing my gripe.
WTF? That's your answer? My cost goes up so it's up to ME to find a way to bring it down? I just shot her a glare, grabbed my bag and walked out. Clueless moronic fool.
IS THIS WHAT WE HAVE COME TO? IS THIS HOW FUCKING STUPID AND DETACHED WE ARE? HAVE WE REALLY COME TO A PLACE WHERE IT'S STANDARD TO PUT THE FOCUS OF STRUGGLE ON THE VICTIM INSTEAD OF THE ONE DOING THE VICTIMIZING?
I wonder how many of us who used to think "why am I here" are now asking "why did I come here".
