I'll be out there looking at some wild animal and that's when somebody's annoying kid will come running up screaming his head off. The animal always disappears as soon as it hears this little jerk. His moronic parents almost always come walking by afterwards with the proudest looks on their faces. Maybe instead of a prideful stare they should give little Jimmy a short leash before he starts rolling around in the poison ivy!
And then there's the groups of people who think everything out there belongs to them. These idiots think just because they're in a group of six they should hoop and holler up a storm. Each one of these losers sounds like they're trying to compete with each other on who can be the loudest. Why do they even go out there? Don't these dimwits know that all of their yelling is going to scare away every animal for miles around? I think they're just trying to ruin it for everyone. Jerks!
Another thing I hate is the people that come out here alone, but have to be on the cell-phones. How those phones work out here, I don't know, but these lamebrains are still on the things chattering away at the top of their lungs. Why? I thought these parks were there to enjoy the solitude. Can't these halfwits exist for at least one moment without one of those things pressed to the sides of their stupid heads?
What about people and their dogs? I like pets just as much as anybody else but when I'm enjoying nature I don't want your pet barking in my ear. You bring little Cujo out there and let him off the leash and think his barking and howling are fun! It scares the animals. It scares the people. And it makes me mad! How would you like to be the one on the wrong side of an encounter with your unleashed giant little darling?
I quit writing on here last year because they didn't want me to say any of these things, but now things have changed. I'm back and nobody's going to stop me now! This place is normally focused on a gentle peaceful look at nature, but it also needs somebody like me to give it to you straight. Some people just don't respect nature, and I'm going to tell you about it.
And that's all I have to say about that!
