To the awful, loud-mouthed hunting enthusiast we had the misfortune of meeting the other night: you need to learn shut up. Your ignorant opinions on treaty hunting and fishing rights were super-racist and your remarks on women and “gittin’ laid” were just gross. In what world is it acceptable to talk to strangers like that? You weren’t even drunk!
This might be shocking to you, O bear of little brain, but most of us don’t go to pubs to have unsolicited conversations with sexist, gun-owning, socially inept bigots. I don’t know what they talk about in the dives you usually drink at, but your stupidity, racism and basic lack of social skills won’t ever be welcome in nice places.
On the bright side, you’re still in your 20s, so it probably isn’t too late to learn basic etiquette. You should do that. Because if you don’t acquire some manners, you’ll have to spend the rest of your life drinking with creeps like you — and nobody deserves that. /Anonymous
