Does IQ stand for Ignorance Quotient?

Do you ever wonder..Has everyone lost their friggin minds? I do on occasion. I find there are days when every person I have to deal with is either dumb as a rock or plain doesn't give a shit. The ignorance quotient gets high on some days which makes me think its either the alignment of the damn planets or a new viral strain that scientists are not aware of yet. The viral strain gets my vote in most cases. It seems to affect even the most intelligent of people, folks that usually don't act like their brains just took a friggin vacation and left the anal area in charge for the day. I can't see how in the blue hell anyone with half a thought process could fall victim to the "I don't give a shit" virus, or the "It's not my problem" strain which seems to affect those people that deal with the general public. Correct me if I am wrong but even the nimrods that work at say, Macy's, have to expect customer service from someone at some point in their day. Even "they" have to deal with someone at Starbucks or even Burger King or god forbid the Vet's office. Don't "they" want a little respect or help from a clerk or a person whos sole job is to provide a service to paying customers? Do the dipshits in life that are lucky enough to keep a job they suck at really think no one is going to notice their shitty attitude or lack of effort? Maybe they are delusional enough to think no one is going to take the time to complain about them or possibly mention the fact that they really really should find another line of work, like maybe cleaning the cat boxes at the local animal shelter. Perhaps I am the one that is delusional, thinking that some folks might actually take the time to bitch to someone that will actually DO something about that jackass at the front desk that has the personality of a grapefruit. Like when your standing there, waiting to be acknowledged or told, "I will be right with you". It takes a nano fucking second to say that phrase, but I will be damned if the flaky bitch at the vet's office today, who was standing roughly 1 foot from my face could acknowledge me. She kept answering her phone, or staring at her computer screen, ANYTHING but shoot me a look and "the phrase". I stood there for 10 friggin minutes before one of the assistants from the back noticed my "I wanna kill you bitch" look at the aforementioned front desk person and came up and asked if I had been helped yet. Now, it would of been easy to go off on her and say "Hell no, I always have this expression on my face" but I didn't. I felt it would be very rude to take it out on her. It wasn't her fault the person closest to me could not do anything but ignore me. Ok, I did send one final "glare" at the clown that was still staring at her computer when I left the office area, but since she was still not making eye contact with anything but her computer monitor she obviously missed my nasty look. And since I frequent this vet's office quite regularly lately I felt that making a "scene" would not be in MY best interests. The time would come when I would have to deal with this complete idiot at some point in my sick pets life. Since I have a boatload of dogs and cats. The odds were very good I would see this dipshit again, so I held my tongue, felt my blood pressure fly off the charts and silently mumbled to myself that god would reward me at some point for not mouthing off this one time. God will reward me for this right? Don't tell me he wont. I will come unglued if I even entertain the idea that my tolerance for this rude bitch will go unrewarded....I swear I will.
