Last night I called into an inter-net cafe in OKR and found somebody had left a letter up on the pc. It was a mad, paranoid rant against the author's bosses, various businesses and several others in between, it was also interspersed with some very interesting religious quotations and lamentations and was hilarious - until I noticed the author was my downstairs neighbour. And so to Tesco. I endured the usual buffeting until I reached the checkouts, where I found an elderly man who couldn't find what to do with his empty basket. "Here, I'll sort that for you." He handed it to me with a scowl on his face - no sign of a thank you - he was having a bad day as well. Outside in the car-park, all of the people in front of me (including the elderly man) walked slowly, pulling purchases from plastic bags, unwrapping them, and then throwing their litter to the ground. Much saddened I hurried home, idly switched on the TV and discovered that Johnny Rotten is to appear on: "I'm a celebrity - get me out of here" - is this good news?
Although Johnny Rotten is very staunch in his beliefs and says what he means, I'm sure at least he says thank you and doesn't throw litter around. He may come from th punk era, but I reckon he's probably got more good ideas on keeping this country in order than a lot of our politicians. I'm looking forward to hearing what he comes out with on "...Celebrity..."
