I’ve been searching teh Intertubez for something to write about today, and as I peruse, I’m beginning to realize there’s something fundamentally wrong with our society. We’re the freest nation in the world. We offer the most opportunities, we protect personal liberties, we are a generous, courageous, honorable nation overall.
Despite all this, however, I have to ask myself what the flying hell is going on here?
Why does this shitbag still have a job – a job that pays him money out of the pockets of the very people he abuses on a regular basis?
Tammy Fox is Agent Chu’s latest victim. She was in the dirt near Elmhurst Hospital, trying to fix her flat tire, when Agent Chu sauntered up. Instead of offering help, like most New Yorkers would, he slapped her with a ticket.
“I said to him, ‘are you kidding me? You’re very insensitive. I’m going to visit my friend in the hospital who had cancer, and I’m trying to fix my flat tire, and you’re standing here writing me a ticket?’” Fox said.
Tammy hit the nail on the head when she used the word insensitive. The very day she got the ticket, CBS 2 told you that NYPD brass docked Chu’s pay and ordered him into sensitivity training for a raft of run-ins with the public and Queens Councilman Daniel Halloran.
“Apparently, the sensitivity training didn’t work,” Councilman Halloran said.
Halloran caught Agent Chu breaking enough traffic laws to lose his license speeding, going through stop signs, using flashing lights, talking on a cell phone just to get a cup of coffee. Halloran then received hundreds of complaints from constituents about Agent Chu, who even reportedly slapped tickets on members of a funeral procession.
Why did Southwest Airlines boot a normal-sized passenger who paid for her seat from an aircraft, so that a sow whose girth overflowed into the next seat, but who only paid for one seat, could take up two seats and overflow in peace?
The local woman was flying standby, paid full fare for the last available seat, got on board, stowed her bags and sat down only to be told she would have to deplane immediately.
A late-arriving passenger required two seats because of her girth.
The Sacramento woman, a frequent-flying sales rep, was stunned.
“It didn’t seem right that I should have to leave to accommodate someone who had only paid for one seat,” she tells us. (She has asked to remain anonymous for fear some may regard her as insensitive.)
She’s even more miffed because she says Southwest personnel berated her when she questioned the decision to boot her from the plane.
Worse yet, there’s something seriously wrong with a society where a woman can’t even voice her opposition to this type of injustice without fearing being called “insensitive” to some fat fuck.
