Oh how I hate people sometimes...

I just need to rant a little bit here...


So, I put an ad on craigslist for dog walking and pet sitting, and I haven't gotten any actual calls for it.


I have, however, received two calls for me to walk their african american.


The first one I knew something was up because when I answered, they responded with "Hey sexy." (Ugh) So when they started to be fools, I kind of saw it coming and just went with the flow.

But the one I just received started with this guy sounding like he was almost in tears, asking me if he should put down his pitbull because it's aggressive towards dogs, and I said depending on how aggressive maybe you should ask a professional (I had specifically stated on my ad that I am AMATEUR when it comes to dogs) and he said okay, and he had another animal for me to walk. His african american.

What is WRONG with people today? I mean, my generation is so immature so much of the time...and not even just necessarily my generation but of course that's where I have the most examples because I interact with people my age the most.

But really, I thought racism was over? And to think I felt so bad for his pitbull...if that guy has a pitbull I feel sorry for it.

I almost want to call them back pretending to be the Davis PD and be like "We got a call about hate crimes being committed over the phone from this number..."

But I won't...what an adventure that would be though lol

End of rant :)

I love what I read on a bumper sticker once: "The more I'm around people--the more I love my dog".

Ain't it the truth.

seitsu...I just read your post and just shaking my head*....I WISH that would have been me they called and said something about walking a african american (ty for cleaning it up to seitsu, I know they probably used another term). I would have lost it and did all I could do to track there asses down....Racism dead ? Hell No its alive with a strong heart beat ...Yes alive and well!...But see now with this new cyber world ....Cowards can hide behind computers and unlisted phone numbers and express how they really felt and cant express in public!...ok I am done! lol

Thank you lol, that's exactly how I feel! I was extremely angry but kept my temper down and just hung up on them...lol my stepmom told my dad to call the number back (it wasn't blocked) and yell at them saying how I'm his 16 year old daughter and these punks need to back off and if they don't he'll hunt them down blah blah blah...I thought it was an amusing idea ^^

Damn people!! Come drive what, two hours? My way and you can walk my dogs no problem!!! I'd ask the vets in your area if you can post a flyer. It's safer for you. I had a booming pet-sitting/dog-walking business when I was 17 (made 3,000 dollars by the time I graduated hs from the side business because I was pricey and people paid it). Craigslist is full of trolls and I don't want you getting hurt worse than bs out of line phone calls.

Honestly, I would definitely use a dog-walking service if there was one around here.  I've never seen an ad locally for that, though.  You'd think with people busy busy busy these days, you'd get some serious calls about your services.  Maybe you will yet.  Got my fingers crossed for ya .

I taught high school Spanish in a very small town a few years ago. The people in this town were extremely anti-Mexican/Hispanic. Conversely, I have a strong passion for the people and the culture. It was somewhat tiring to be in the company of such limited acceptance (forget appreciation) of other cultures. Not sure if anyone in town had ever ventured outside a two mile radius. I made it through the year and completion of the contract and could hardly wait for packing up my pencils! The name of the town is Rio Vista. Not one of the students knew the words were Spanish and of course had no clue to the translation, river view. Most were lifetime residents. There are times when saying goodbye is so easy.

I'm lucky enough to live in Davis, where everybody is accepted, including the gay community. In contrast when I moved to Washington for a year homosexuality was so unaccepted that even the SCHOOL COUNSELOR made a slur towards me. I was outraged and couldn't wait to get back to Davis, I forget sometimes that there are still people that are prejudiced.

You kow what... people like that should be put in a room... no lights, only minimal food (for longer torture time) and left there to think about what they've done. THE ULTIMATE GROUNDING!!!!! lolz

Definitely lol the ultimate grounding sounds like an awesome punishment, especially in the 21st century you would think that racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. wouldn't be a problem anymore.

And it shouldn't be. I was babysitting my little cousin and his friend a few weeks back, and they got mad at eachother... well needless to say, the other litle kid, to make marcus mad, said "I hate black people" straight to his face. Marcus is black. Neither of us took it very well.

Yeah, definitely not, I wish people would just realize we're all PEOPLE no matter our preferences or skin color,
