One thing I can't stand, I mean I reeeeeeally can't tolerate is people picking their noses *trembles in disgust as I type those words* in public! I mean WTF is wrong with people that they seem to think Digging in public is their Civil Right? There are others around you who die in severe trauma watching you doing that, so please keep your filthy fingers off your snot-bombarded nose! The other day I was on the train and there was this young woman sitting next to me, and it's as if she knew that I couldn't stand it, she kept on digging her nose like she was Gold-digging or something! I was soooo pissed off I wanted to get up and go to another seat, but unfortunately there were no vacant seats around and some people were standing in the aisle. So the 'Common Sense' God tells me 'Keshi just sit and don't look. That's all you can do unfortunately in this very devastating situation btw', and he offers his 'deepest' sympathies to me and disappears in clouds - bloody booger man! WTH I was so damn disgusted I wanted to throw up violently - yes, on her lap. She was penetrating her nose as if that's what she did to breathe! *in out in out right left left right up down up down in out in out circle circle up down left right* urrrrrrrrrg someone just shoot me pelase! I was tracing her terror-act from the corner of my eyes, incase she decided to dump her GOLD on me! If that was gonna happen I was gonna quickly get up and scream 'You're under arrest for harassing me for the last 20mins with your booger-love, you digger of a dirty skank!'. Pardon my language but hey is language even a worry when facing a deadly epidemic like this? I don't want somebody else's snot on my clothes or even anywhere near me ok! And then she continued doing it like I didn't even exist - as if she was all by herself at her home, in the oh-so liberating comfort of burping, digging, scratching, farting etc without a bloody care in the world! For goddsakes this was not her bathroom - it was a frikkin peak-hour train! Why do people not think about others? Why are people so insensitive to fellow-commuters' feelings? Worse, where is good manners and general hygene? YUKKK I don't even do it at home...I blow my nose using a tissue or a hankie. I had to get out before her, so when I got up I gave her a very dirty look, rolled my eyes and yes I did say this to her 'Please don't ever dig your nose in public!' and I left. (in real it meant 'you're a dirty dig-pig that claims lives!'). People were looking at me and some smiled and nodded in approval. I'm glad I did something about it than just curse and walk away.
Do you confront ill-mannered people in public? If you find anyone doing something as outrageous (or worse than this) as this, please don't keep silent. Say/do something about it...and in a polite and effective manner (if interested, read my other public-terror-act post Smells Like Skunk Spirit, where I couldn't do much than just suffocate to a near-death situation!). People need to be aware of and sensitive to others when in public. Please know it's an offence to bloody dig in public, and some poor digger is gonna receive a Digging Manual from me next time...and it'll read 'Diggers Keepers Manual - dig shit if you must but please 'keep' your shit with you. Also 'keep' Digging for a home act, not here! Most importantly 'keep' your rotten fingers off me and 'keep' a safe distance from others whenever you get the urge to frikkin dig. For your safety 'keep' this manual with you til you dig deep in death. Cos nah I don't dig that act in this life babeh, so just dig off will ya!'.
Share with me any similar experiences you've come across in public (I accidentally typed 'pubic' before lol! no I don't wanna know your 'pubic' experiences cos I'm just resurrecting from that nasal experience, so please don't try to knock me down again!). I will survive somehow!
