Before you speak, ask yourself, is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the silence? -Sathya Sai Baba

Another adventure in doin' it wrong.

Woman going up the stairs, bitching passive aggressively about the woman in front of her walking too slow: "Fucking oblivious morons." She sidles past and up.

Her bullying manner irks me. A stray thought wanders past. "I ought to teach her a lesson." I speed up to walk in front of her and then deliberately slow down.

"And here's another one!" she says "fucking oblivious morons!" She bumps me as she passes, barely.

"Have a nice day," I say.

Still not addressing me, she continues her tirade. "Have a nice day," I say again.

"You need to fucking pay attention," she says.

"Oh, I did it on purpose." I say. "Have a nice day."

"Then you're a bigger asshole than I thought!" she shouts as I walk away. "Ya doof!"

She's right. Should have left it alone.
