Everyday when I go out, and it may be at the subway/underground, the bus or a café, McDonalds and what have you. Every were there is a stupid male carachter, a chauvinist, of all kind of nationalities creating problems out of absolutly nothing. The other day it was a classic “Svensson” as we say in Sweden. A blonde Swede. Today at the table next to me at this McDonalds café section at this shopping mall, its a russian tourist going off on about apparently nothing. The woman he sits with first sat waited for him. He came and she looked glad to see him. She gave him a perfectly normal friendly face. He starts going off on in Russian language, which I dont speak but his tone and gestures was universal. He points at the table with one dried spot, waving about as it was the end of the world. He points again and almost look at her as if she was his private waitress. She goes away and comes back with a cloth and wipes it off. He sits down like he had an issue with himself. Irrritated. The world against him, at HIM a MAN. When she comes back she gives him still a normal glad face. He starts to complain. In russian which I dont speak, but the tone and gestures again is simply that stupid macho attitude.
I just ask myself why. Why the heck couldnt HE lift his bony ass and go for that cloth and wipe it off himself.
