More cynical greatness from Stephan Pastis and the Pearls before Swine strip…

Not gonna lie, i’m a hand wave guy – you gotta do the wave!

i have a saying that ‘people tend towards stupid’ and generally life (and smokers flinging cigarette butts out of car windows) continues to prove me correct on this one…

another prime example of this seems to be the mono-dimensional thort patterns of pedestrians in stellenbosch who will be walking along the pavement, possibly talking to a friend or messaging on their phone or vibing by themself and then they come to a road intersection and without fail just walk…

none of that left, right, left stuff we were taught as kids… and especially people with kids… it is bizarrely confounding – do you live in stellenbosch and have you observed this? do you live somewhere else and think your pedestrains are as monumentally stupid and death wishical (they’re not!) as ours?

arrive at intersection, walk… cars must wait, no thort of impending death or the possibility of a vehicle much bigger and heavier (most times) than you…

and i don’t think i can make my last point, cos it is a point of race (in terms of my observation experience) but i am wondering if it is possibly a point more of wealth/education/upbringing and context that makes the people who do this the people who do this…

[and normally i am very observant when it comes to driving but the other night on the highway when three different okes ran across in three different places, i honestly don’t think i would have spotted the one running closest in front of me who kinda got deer-scared in my headlights if it had not been for tbV pointing him out and that could have had a very bad ending]

your thorts on shtupidt pedestrian type people? i really do think it’s specifically a stellenbosch thing [and interestingly enuff it is not drunk students for the most part – most of the cars are gone by the time they head home]
