The Curious Tale of Mr and Ms Snotty, the Little Sidewalk Chalker, her Father, the Police, City Council and the Public
Please read a heavily bias and pretty offensive truth I’ve written out for you followed by a very serious question, here goes -
Anywhere: The Curious Tale of Mr and Ms Snotty, the Little Sidewalk Chalker, her Father, the Police, City Council and the Public
One day, a little girl is out sidewalk chalking when a snotty neighbor decided he doesn’t like it, and like all snotty people, they deflect to the police, all of their non-emergency issues – Here’s how it goes
Scenario 1 | the caller gets told by 911 to “get a life” then 911 hangs up, so Mr Snotty goes out and yells at the little girl for making a mess of his sidewalk …the girls father comes out and busts his lip for yelling at his daughter (it’s on now) The father then gets arrested for assault and battery while the snotty neighbor grandstands on the news and talks about how he was hung up on by 911 then attacked by a menace who’s daughter was obstructing a public sidewalk, (because clearly sidewalk chalk is a public safety issue *rolls eyes) The whole situation becomes a god damn tragedy brought on by the snotty drama queen of a neighbor who has no people skills and thinks it’s somehow horrible that a kid sidewalk chalks on “his” sidewalk.
Scenario 2 | The caller calls and complains about the little girl, and 911 says fine, and sends a cop that, says hello to the little girl and goes on to find the father. The cop finds him and says they got a complaint about graffiti and tells the father to please tell the little girl to stop .. to keep the peace. The father gets upset “Are you serious, what is it illegal or something” and the cop just kind of bows his head and calmly explains that he has to tell him this etc etc …now the police are Nazis, and Mr snotty gets to remain anonymous, and looks on happily from his window, taking some pleasure from watching the scenario unfold.
Ok so, who is wrong in this situation? Does the snotty person deserve a busted lip, should the cops be labeled as Nazis, what do we do here?
On the one hand, if 911 does nothing, laughs and tells Mr snotty to get a life (which is what they want to say), there will most likely be a fight; Mr snotty may say well hey, I’ll show them, and go out and yell at kids ..and Mr snotty may get hit for thinking he can yell at kids… then the little girls father gets arrested, (jail time?) and maybe the whole family falls apart because the father ends up in jail and the family goes homeless because, he was the breadwinner, Mr snotty effectively destroys the family. Maybe the father comes back in vengeance and really f*cks him up later on down the road, or worse ..it happens.
Sending a cop to begin with can be an attempt to deescalate things before they get worse, look at as prevention, not because the little girl is wrong, or because the father is wrong ( I would probably bust Mr snotty for yelling at my girl if words didn’t work) On the other hand, seeing the police do something like tell a family that their daughter cannot sidewalk chalk is almost an infringement on freedom itself.. or so it seems. Things like this can even snowball, maybe the police chief goes to the city council and says hey look, we don’t want to be telling people their kids can’t chalk, can you just make a city ordinance that bans it because this is kind of f*cked up, at least this way we can just say “it’s the law” ..”it’s our job” .. the city now bans chalking and says ok, done, now you guys (the cops) won’t look like jerks because “it’s the law” and no Mr Snotty will get hit by Mr Father, it’s a win win, case closed..
but now the city residents are in uproar that their little girls or boys can’t sidewalk chalk (rightfully so) -
what can we do?
..remember, all the Mr Snottys or misses Snottys get to remain anonymous (or grandstand on tv) and just watch on from their windows giggling happily at their perfectly manicured street, hey maybe all the bums with kids will move out so property value goes up and the legacy of being snotty can continue on.
-THE END -
I know, it was a horrible story, I’m not a writer, lets look at all the players in this story..
The police: Just trying prevent drama. Thinks and says, (Insert fonzie voice) “Heeeey Mr C we got a call” (scratches neck kinda looks the other way) ..then explains the situation to the father.
City Council: Sitting waiting at some ridiculously big desk to make ordinances that help everyone get along. Thinks, how do we make this a win win.
The little girls father: Thinks, hey look at my kids artwork
The little girl: Thinks, hey daddy look at my picture.
The public: Thinks, hey what the hell is happening to our freedom, god damn cops. (maybe they amass in large groups and go out at midnight and sidewalk chalk an entire street in anger while police say “OMG” Maybe things get out of hand, and the police lose, the sidewalk chalkers lose, the father and his little girl lose, city council loses, hell, even the 1% lose. ..but Mr and ms Snotty win. So who’s really messing things up -
Mr and Ms Snotty: Thinks, god damn kids, isn’t this a public safety concern, I’m calling the police, look what she did to the sidewalk, I don’t want my poodle tracking that chalk into the house.
So.. Now that you’ve heard the truth, or my heavily bias horribly written version of what is exactly the truth in my opinion, we need
Solutions, but lets ask the question first, are snotty people messing up our cities, think one step further even, are they screwing up our nation, or am I just a bias jerk?
Please Note: This entire story is a work of fiction, and definitely does not resemble any actual scenarios in real life *LOL’s
In the end of this story, the government is the enemy of freedom, police are Nazis, the public is a bunch of bongo beating hippies, the little girl is a public safety concern, the father is a violent menace, and Mr and Mrs’ snotty are anonymously enjoying it all.. unscathed and unaffected by the ensuing drama
I’d like to pose a second question, who else is the 1% controlling things from a distance..?
