I am enraged.
Some background information: I hail from a very small but economically successful country. The average standard of living is reported to be above the 'global average' and we have access to rather effective public education, clean water and arguably affordable but ok-quality public housing. Public safety is taken for granted because this country frequently ranks amongst those with the lowest crime rate. The price of food and groceries in general is affordable. Eating out is relatively affordable -- hell, eating out HEALTHFULLY AND AFFORDABLY is entirely possible since we are an entire nation dedicated to cheap yet GOOD food. Ironically, fast food in my country is more costly as compared to many other countries. Why am I talking about all these things? Because it DESTROYS the excuses that so many fat individuals use to justify their lack of personal responsibility! "Poor and disadvantaged. Can't afford to eat healthful foods and fast food is so cheap. It's not safe to exercise outside and I can't afford a gym membership."
I never thought I'd run into one of these despicable people on home ground because I live in a coastal neighborhood with extensive bicycle and running tracks along the waterway. It's a very common sight to see residents jogging and biking as soon as the sun starts to set (tropical sun and daytime humidity is a bitch) and there are lots of dance, fitness and martial arts classes going on at the local community centre (say, about 30 USD / Euro for 10 sessions) not to mention plenty of fitness corners (pull-up bars, sit-up benches and the works) and basketball and badminton courts available FREE-OF-CHARGE, sprinkled throughout the neighborhood. We are literally talking exercise facilities every 200 meters.
All of this yet I find myself getting cussed out by this very obese, age-unidentifiable t-h-i-n-g at a traffic crossing, all because the tropical midday sun was a bitch and I tried to seek shelter in the shade of a street light. Ok to be honest, I was rather taken aback because while we do see tubbies every so often, extremely large people are not a common sight in my country. But the point is that a ham was TRIGGERED by the sight of normal people minding their own damn business.
"...ninabei... Haolian lah. San dio haolian lah, " the Ham mutters audibly. ***Translation: Fuck (you and) your mother. Arrogant, are you? Just because you are slim, you think you can be arrogant?
Bitch, I may be 166cm and 55kgs but I am nowhere HUMANLY thin enough for the shadow of a street lamp to offer me complete shade but here you are, offended by the mere sight of someone seeking relief from the millions of gamma rays blasting down on God's good Earth.
This just reeks of pure idiocy. You have all the conditions available for a healthy lifestyle yet you choose to be the way you are and take comfort in abusing others. Fuck off. You and your warped thinking are the reasons I will wake earlier every morning to squeeze in a couple more laps round the 200m track right below my block of flats.
