Manspreading, the Crime!
Wonderful news! The UK Telegraph reports that Manspreading, after far too long, finally as being treated as the criminal act that it is:
“According to a recent report from the Police Reform Organising Project, at least two men have been arrested and charged on grounds of the M–word, “presumably because they were taking up more than one seat and therefore inconveniencing other riders”. Rather than simply throwing out the charges, the judge issued an order that only guarantees that the men won’t suffer further repercussions if they avoid getting arrested again in the near future. It’s all part of a numbers driven crackdown on subway behaviour that’s also seen arrests for break dancing, walking between the cars and – collective air punch – people putting their feet on the seats.”
Yes breaches of etiquette now are being treated — appropriately! — as criminal, the perps arrested and threatened with nicely punitive punishments. This is wonderful! If you misbehave, in any way, you deserve to be punished. Hard. By me!
It makes me tingle to think how at long last uncouth behavior is being punished to the full extent of the law. (Ahem. Just wait until you use the wrong fork at a formal dinner…..) Ah, punishment.
I love the smell of napalm in the morning! But then, don’t we all?
