Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 19/12/96

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Last night of the prams

My tolerance of small children has never been high. However, it's starting to look pretty high compared to my tolerance for their pig-ignorant, selfish and troublesome parents.

What is it that makes people assume that having a child in a pram gives them a pedestrian priority that includes the right to barge their prams into other people while the other people are standing perfectly still in a queue? This happened to me not once, not twice, but three times last Friday. The third offender is damn lucky I didn't turn around and deck her.

Where do these people get off? Do they think that their rampant fecundity gives them some kind of charter to piss off other people? Is it so fucking difficult to notice that there is a person standing right in front of you before ramming your child's carriage into their ankles?
