The Oxymoronic Dichotemy of Juxtaposition

No rhyme or reason to this one. Just things that set me off and fall into the category of the post title:

  • The city sanitation worker who tosses a cigarette butt out of the window of the truck while picking up trash
  • The dog owner who lets a pooch pee right in front of the door of a building and then berates another dog owner who doesn’t pick up poop for giving all dog owners a bad name
  • The city taxi commission that forces riders to view and vote on one of three potential Cab TV welcome scenarios before providing the option to turn the damn thing off.
  • The limousine company who meets you at baggage claim with a sign, and then leads you three hundred and fifty yards through pouring rain across two lanes of moving traffic and a parking lot in the rain because “inside pick-up” is more “convenient for riders” than curb-side pick-up.

Please feel free to add your own. It’s simply one of those days…

  1. I’m still hung up on you being picked up at the airport by a limo, Alan. Did I read that right?

    Mine was this morning listening to a girl from one of my Family and Consumer Studies classes talk so rudely to her 4-year-old son when she’s supposedly almost done with a Early Childhood Development major to become what? A teacher. She obviously hasn’t been paying attention to the past couple years of school. It hurt my heart, and I wanted to give the little guy a hug and tell him I’d listen to him.
