Idle Cars

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, Jan 17, 2014 at 8:03 PM

I am very sorry that I hassled you about leaving your car idling for so long. When I see people doing that it is frustrating because it seems ignorant, piggish, and disgusting. In this case I grew increasingly frustrated because your car exhaust was coming into my car. I could not have known that your kid/s have a rare and terminal hereditary disease, and that this requires you to run the heater for them. It did cross my mind that you were lying so that I would feel bad because people do crazy shit like that, but your level of anger did not indicate this. That level of anger accompanies a life that is painful and difficult and deserving of compassion, not criticism, I am so sorry.
