Yes, I am a Horrible Person


I passed a sorority house wreathed in smoke on my way to the bus stop after work. My first worry was not for the welfare of all those bouncy young girls.

I thought, "Oh, damn, now the fire trucks are going to cause a traffic jam and my bus will be late." Then I told myself that I am a horrible person. Sorority girls are people too, after all. What if someone died? Then how would I feel?

But then I realized they were just having a barbeque.
