I am annoyed at the low class ignorance that comes from the mouths of religious students. I am reminded of why I decided to walk away and find my own path. I am just floored by the disrespect for actual working people, by the religious slackers. My uncultured and ignorant nephew made a snide remark about the cleaning woman. I reminded him that the woman works very hard to support her family and it is an outrage that he would disrespect hard working people. I got the lecture how hard it is to study in yeshiva. Sorry, but the cleaning woman works very hard without her hand out, unlike the professional students.
Similarly, my eyes got bloodshot by the levels of cultural ignorance. Glad you can study obscure religious texts but we live in a wider world and should be culturally literate. If you don't know the basics about art, music, theatre and antiques kindly grasp that others do not share your values. Sorry, but I have no desire to recreate a ghetto in Europe.
I got the lecture about my soul. If heaven is being with these religious slackers please ship me to the other place. I would sooner end up next to Junglemom or whomever serves the poor, rather than mindlessly reading obscure religious texts in a fog.
One can not discuss the real world with buffoons and insular baboons. When I was the age of this student I understood the value of hard work. I made a deliberate point to cross that line away from the segregated college table to the bimmi cafeteria where the transients ate. Only the verbal beat down of a beautiful blond daughter of a famous writer got me to return to the college table from time to time. She wanted company and did not care about my small scale social protest.
I guess I was always part of the larger community and thinking on different levels. I have no patience for religious slackers who are still not home on a work night at 2AM.
