To the guy with the Harley who was visiting my neighbour this weekend: you’re a douchebag. And it isn’t the Harley that makes me say that. Yeah, your bike is loud and annoying — driving one around, making that industrial farting noise up and down the block, that makes you an obnoxious asshole. But there are so many obnoxious Harley-riding assholes in this town, I wouldn’t bother writing about you, except you go that extra mile into douchebaggery when you put on that helmet with the “English Spoken Here” sticker on the back. Classy! We get it! You hate foreigners! Well congratulations, racist, obnoxious, Harley-riding douchebag. You’ve inspired me to brush up on my French so I can be sure to be speaking it wherever you or your racist friends might be. /Anonymous
HATE THE RACIST, NOT THE RIDE Queen City Confidential is an open forum for Prairie Dog readers to anonymously over-share their stories and feelings: we suggest true tales of failed romance and exasperating interpersonal situations, rants about trivial pet peeves and petty injustices, constructive criticism for complete strangers or even anonymous gratitude for something nice someone did. In a pinch we’ll even print secret messages to your friends. E-mail email@example.com (type CONFIDENTIAL in the subject field). Change all the names and identifying details. Submissions must be 100-200 words long and will be edited though hopefully not much.
QCC submissions are NOT letters to the editor. Send (signed!) praise, criticism and general comments on Prairie Dog articles — including this — to firstname.lastname@example.org.
