I, Anonymous: Yelling Methhead Edition

posted by on July 16 at 11:18 AM

Another day, another anonymous complaint about a screaming freak.

While I no doubt would agree that your shirt needed a nice dry-cleaning after a presumed night of meth-fueled debauchery, I don’ t endorse your choice to yell at the top of your lungs on on the corner of Belmont and Republican to your party /tryst mate if he knew of the location of a good dry-cleaner. Neither do I endorse his equally rude response “to just head down Belmont to Olive Way.”

For starters, lets assume the dry cleaners down there were open at 7 am on a Sunday. Do you think they really want the shirt off your back, party boy? More importantly, and more to the point: DO YOU THINK THAT THE 100 OR SO OPEN APARTMENT WINDOWS IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING YOUR FABULOUS BRAIN WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT AT 7:03 AM ON A SUNDAY?

I realize this is difficult to get your mind around, sunshine, but the world doesn’t really revolve around you.

Do all your sleeping neighbors a favor next time, and don’t yell. Try a little politeness next time.

Sounds like someone could use some remedial methiquette.

The only remedial methiquette any methhead needs is step one: don't fucking do it. Step two: if you're doing it, get the fuck away from me, my store, and my customers. No, I will not buy your "new" Zune for $25, but I will surreptitiously call the cops once you leave the store.

Living in downtown Seattle? This is completely normal. You're lucky it wasn't earlier in the morning.

I highly recommend the cleaners on Olive Way between Glo's and the Hilltop Market. Perhaps they can institute a methhead discount program.

As one commenter pointed out so well. Welcome to the city, you knew it was going to be this way. The fact that there are a bunch of meth freaks around make the city a fun and vibrant place. You sound uptight for complaining when someone making unnecesary noise wakes you up. This isn't mayberry and you shouldn't expect to be immune from obnoxious behavior. In fact, its fun. Chill out.

Thats sarcasm BTW
