Bathroom Peccadillos, Part II

For the curious, this is what happened to the racist message I found in the Porta-Pottie, as detailed in my previous post.

This morning I went walking on that same route. I went very early, as I intended to look in the pottie and didn't want to be disturbed (or run into the jerkwad who wrote the original message). In this case, "early" means 5:30 in the morning, and even so there were a few workers driving into the subdivision, although there was no one on the cul-de-sac where I was headed.

When I pulled open the door of the pottie, a most welcome sight greeted my eyes.

Nothing.

No swastikas, no White Pride, no semi-illiterate profane race-baiting messages. Just normal blue walls, with no inflammatory writing, just as God intended.

Obviously someone had to scrub off the Sharpie-penned writing. Their shoulder muscles most likely got a workout, as they also had to get rid of the additional message I added to the fray.

YOU are an IDIOT.
Privileged racist sexist pig.
What would you think if someone called your mother or your sister such names?

And down below, next to the "you ain't white" canard:

So? Unless you're albino, neither are you.

I don't want to hear any "defacing property" nonsense. Technically, I suppose that's what the both of us did. However, if the original jerkwad hadn't spewed his racist filth to begin with, there would have been nothing for me to respond to, and thus no "defacing" to be done.

In any event, it's all gone now. All hail the Squeaky Wheel.

"What would you think if someone called your mother or your sister such names?"--what an EXCELLENT way to get across your point! It really brings it home.
