The evening after the recent rain spell a lady in her Civic drove past me at high speed splashing mud all over me. She was stopped by a stalled bus momentarily, so I caught up on her, I was outraged, I knocked at her window, the glass smoothly came down, I instantly said ” Don’t you have eyes?, Look what you have done” She replied in an angry voice ” what can I do if there is water on the road”, I replied “Maim don’t you think you are suppose to slow down while driving through mud, specially when there are motorcyclists or pedestrians by your side, but that would require some manners” I turned around and walked away from her, at times like these I become bitter besides being soaked in smelly mud is not something anyone would enjoy.
Yesterday, at around 9 I decided to get my self a subway tuna sub, My uncle told me to get a cake from the Dhaka, I was dressed in a jeans and a discolored T-shirt, obviously I didn’t change and went straight away to the subway where their staff gave me a weird look, but I didn’t care, I got my sandwich done with extra olives and went to Dhaka, At Dhaka sweet I asked one of the worker to pack for me the two pound chocolate cake, instead of getting the cake out of the fridge he replied “Yeah 220 Ka hai” in a sarcastic manner, I was really pissed off at his reaction so I replied “Am not asking you to read the price tag for me, just get the God Damn Cake out of there and pack it for me, Okey !! ?”. My shouting attracted the manager, he apologized me and told his employ to start behaving with the customers.
Actually it was not his fault, our society has learned that a person’s real honor is her/his appearance, we have been treating people in dirty clothes like verminous creature, we are not familiar with the idea of an educated person sweeping his own house, we don’t see many well to do (so called) decent people paint their house or fix their car. For us a man in a worn-out outfits had to be a jahil kangla, But for me it is always fun to get people by surprise :), but this fun ends the moment I realize that our society had a lot to learn and has yet to become civilized.
People who say “clothes makes a man” must be thinking what a freak I am. But I cant help my self, this is who I am, this is my identity this is what sets me apart from the crowd. I am a freak, a feminist, a revolutionist a person who is a complete jerk, with not one but many screws loose up there 🙂 .
