For the first time in about three and a half years I went to the park. I used to go to the park all the time. But there came a point, I decided it was too miserable an experience to go there. As soon as I’d enter the park, parents would show up with their children. Of course, they just had to sit where I sat. They’d tell their brats to make as much noise as possible, to scream and yell at the top of their lungs. Not only would they tell them to do this, but they’d tell them to jump up and down on the tables. Nice thing to teach their kids. To become as wild as possible. I took it for a while, but then I began to feel like I’d like to take the kids and turn them around and just hit their bottoms to teach them to behave. I decided it was safer for me to stay out of the park. I didn’t want to be accused of child abuse. So I passed by the park, but stayed away from entering it.
Now, I decided to give the park another try. How much worse can it be than what it used to be? Well, honestly, a lot worse. I went to the park yesterday and sat on a rock, far away from everybody in the park. Well, as usually happens, the area I was sitting in became the area to sit. Immediately, mothers with their children, women with dogs, men walking, boy/girlfriends, etc. just had to sit near the vicinity of where I sat. The park’s surrounded by apartment complexes, people put their chairs out and watched me non-stop. Every way I turned, someone was watching me. I did not leave the park, I moved and sat in another area. Again, the area became the newest place to hang out. Some of the people sent their dogs my way, so I’d pet the dog and then they thought I’d start a conversation with them. I paid no attention. A lot of women passed by me talking as if they were miles from each other, not next to each other. I had a book I was reading and totally absorbed myself in the book. And I managed to stay put for an hour. After an hour, I’d had enough of the ridiculous idiots. I left.
I can’t even sit in the park for an hour without someone annoying the hell out of me. I can tell you I hate these people for making my life so joyless. I can’t sit in the park, go for a walk, the store, get on the bus, etc. without having an entourage.
