The OCM’s Dumb A$$ of the Day

Hello all, it’s a bright and sunny Thursday here in my little corner of the planet and I have to say that after enjoying some much needed and sorely missed vitamin D I’m in quite the mood.

I’ve recently started a new job in the downtown core of my city. This means I am seeing a whole lot of people every day on my way to and from the office. Anyone who knows me even a little bit is aware of my general attitude towards John Q Public. I am a firm believer that at least 50% of the population is made up of obliviots and they irritate me in a way that nothing else is capable of doing. I heard a great saying not to long ago, don’t remember where but that doesn’t make it any less true….


I’m not sure how I am still surprised by people’s actions, but I am left baffled and amazed at least once a day by a citizen that for all intents and purposes looks to be a normal human being but turns out to be a complete dumb a$$. Thought I would share my find for today.

The Great Cross Walk Mystery

In Canada we have handy lighted signs to help out those who are perceptionally-challenged (meaning they lack the ability to look both ways before crossing a street). It flashes a friendly walking figure when it’s ok for you to cross and a great big menacing orange hand when it’s not. Seems pretty straightforward right?

WRONG – I watched a cell phone chatting, latte-carrying, stiletto wearing twit go strolling out into the street (in direct contradiction to the big orange hand) right in front of a car. Luckily for this numbskull the driver in question was paying attention and just barely managed to stop.  Now for most of us this would mean we would have had the bejeebus scared out of us, then apologized profusely to the driver then slink away in shame and embarrassment. Not for this awesome example of just how shallow the gene pool is getting, she proceeded to smack the hood of the car, flip the driver off and walk away head held high.

I wanted to chase her down and throttle her.  I didn’t of course… but I really wanted to.

How about you? What’s your best example?

Well that’s it for me for today, hope this post finds you well and happy! Thanks for stopping by

  1. You are just too funny! I never imagined someone else in the world like me!

  2. Thank you! I have come across almost the exact same situation…only this one involved a nitwit mother who was too busy looking down, texting on her phone, to notice her toddler heading right in front of approaching cars in the middle of a busy parking lot! Thankfully, the drivers were paying attention and came to a stop. The mother didn’t even notice….people!!

    • I swear I’m going to start carrying stickers in my purse that say “I have won OCM’s DAoTD” (Over Caffeinated Mom’s Dumb A$$ of the Day) so I can chase these twits down and slap it on their forehead!

      Thanks for stopping by Leslie!
