I do not understand people


caprine pointed me to a case of transphobia from National Car Rental. Seriously, WTF is wrong with people? Can't a person return a rental car without being harassed, threatened and treated like shit? Seriously, WTF?

My friend uncommon_crow has been going through some appalling things at the hospital near his house. :(

You don't always meet the most enlightened people working behind those counters.

Several times I have had rental clerks doubt that my husband and I could possibly be married, since OH MY GOD I STILL GO BY MY MAIDEN NAME. I understand how an unmarried couple, seeking the "no charge for a second driver if it's your spouse" bargain, might be tempted to lie about it and cover it with "oh, I kept my maiden name." So I understand why they might ask for more proof or something. But I had people react like they had NEVER heard of the IDEA before, of a MARRIED woman not changing her name. And this was in the 2000s.

So the fact that one of them could be gobsmacked by the sight/idea/concept of a transgendered person, and act like a total cockhole about it? Sadly, it's believable.

humans suck as a species. and the suck ass stupid evolutionary dead enders keep breeding instead of being culled like they should be. but then i also take to task that the smart well rounded higher evolved ones don't breed all that damn much. then there are utter cretins like octomom.... gah. gonna stop now. you know to many things anger me beyond belief anymore

Most humans don't suck. This one needs to be sucked through a black hole.

don't read much Fark i am guessing. and being sucked through a black hole may be too good for them considering that anything including some awesome reward may be on the other side. perhaps just given a handjob with a glove made of cheese graters and lemon zesters would be good.

I stay away from Fark. I prefer LJ anyway - far more positive a place.

That is nasty. I hope they fire that clerk.

I read an update today that National replied to the victim and in strong terms said they're not happy, so hopefully there will be a positive outcome.
