In a parallel non- politically correct universe, who would get a piece of your mind first?

Asked by yesitszen (1951points) November 8th, 2018

The slob in line at Wendy’s? The co-worker with the halitosis? A racial epithet you’ve only whispered under your breath?

Or a “friend divorce” a la Seinfeld and Curb your Enthusiasm, wherein you explain to someone that you simply no longer want to be friends.

Really hoping being politically-correct isn’t the only thing keeping people from being racist and bigoted. :/

Not feeling this question, Zen.

@raum, zen doesn’t much like the whole “treating people with compassion and respect” thing.

It seems to be a thing for him.

“I started imagining a world in which we replaced the phrase ‘politically correct’ wherever we could with ‘treating other people with respect’, and it made me smile.

“You should try it. It’s peculiarly enlightening.

“I know what you’re thinking now. You’re thinking ‘Oh my god, that’s treating other people with respect gone mad!’

The corporations that build airplane seats for only one body type, and those with ableist attitudes who side with the corporations.

I am sick and tired of everyone giving them a free ride. Here’s your food, here’s a treasure chest, here let me knock that three inch fish turd off your ass.
They let everyone think they are helpless captives in their damn tanks, but I know the truth. When we sleep, when we’re not home, those little bastards get out and do things.
They play with the TV remote so your brand new batteries are dead.
They leave the refrigerator door open so your shit spoils.
They eat the last cookie.
They flush big wads of paper so the next time you use it it will overflow.
Lazy, little, scheming bastards think they are special because they are orange!
I wanna stomp them all.
Just once I would like to shed PC and tell them exactly how they make me feel.

Thanx. I feel better now that I have exposed this anger I carry with me.

Another good question.

Oh, you do that plenty here, @josie, no parallel universe needed.

I would donate part of my mind to anyone close to me who had the misfortune to be stricken with dementia.
(Wow…that was emotional, genius slant though)

It’s a question.
I guess those who have attacked me here personally might do so for real in an alternate universe. I’d like to see them try. Pussies.
