I went from kind of feeling guilty about some of the lines in my original post being misunderstood, to being even less annoyed that these people were apparently finding reasons to being offended, to realizing that it's a lot more amusing to just sit back and let these people stew and rant. If I insulted anyone, it was the customer who I'm 90% certain is a crackhead. This bitch looked so tore up and her behavior was just wack//o//. People claiming drug-addicts who don't give a fuck deserve some respect because they're people? Hahaha, that's rich.
Although I hate bringing up some sob story bullshit or facts about my life that come off as giving me a pat on the back: My father, stepmother, and mother were all addicted to drugs and alcohol at points in their life. In fact, my father and stepmother met while they were recovering. Both of them have been almost twenty years clean, each. They council and sponsor people getting into the program(s), I've spent a good deal of my life among other people who cleaned up their act. I've gone and sat at numerous AA/NA meetings and listened to people talk about the worst times of their lives. I've heard countless people say they lost all dignity during those dark times. However, these people were able to not only recognize their problems, but make the effort to overcome them, which does merit respect. But if somebody wants to continue to throw their life away, content with the hell they put themselves in, then these people are hardly people in my book.
Also, let me tell everyone about halfway houses. There are a lot that genuinely try to help people get back on their feet but there are just as many ran by people who don't give a fuck. These people buy cheap housing and pretty much use it as a means to get money from the government. Drugs and alcohol still run rampant. Hell, I live within walking distance to two places that fit the latter.
Continue to reply to the post in customers_suck and stupid_free. I actually used to lurk/contribute regularly to the latter, before realizing the unforunate fact that a lot of the contributers/commenters were throwing stones while living in glass houses, and I guess it's a little refreshing to know that after over three years, that fact hasn't changed.
