Miata been a bad idea

miata

Long story short, the two women in the above picture (credit to Reddit user speednub1), saw a car they have a low opinion of and decided to climb inside it and stomp around on the seats in their high heels.

The general population’s reaction to this image has thus far been a resounding “What the fuck?” and the words bitch and crazy have been pointed repeatedly at the women pictured, among other, far less pleasant terms.Clearly there are some people out there who don’t understand why this scenario has inspired uproar, otherwise this picture wouldn’t exist in the first place. So, I’m going to attempt to clarify.What they did wrong

  1. The two women in the picture are intentionally treating someone else’s property poorly, knowing full well that their actions may damage that property.The two women are enjoying their efforts to attempt to damage someone else’s property.The reason these two women are happily attempting to damage someone else’s property because it doesn’t match their personal tastes
  2. .The two women are so ignorant that they fully believe their actions are acceptable. They have intentionally shared the fun they had attempting to damage someone else’s property publicly via social media, complete with easily personally identifiable features.By  proudly noting, at least 12 hours after the incident occurred, that “heels were intact,” they have pointed out that the incident wasn’t a random, alcohol fueled mistake but instead something they do not regret at all a full day later.

Why people are angry

As a society, we’ve agreed on a few thousand rules. We call them laws. They pretty much all come back to the simplest rule of all, known as The Golden Rule. It states: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” It’s a damned simple rule and it’s extremely effective at keeping society functional.

Note that the Golden Rule does not include the clause: “unless you don’t like their taste in cars”; or: “unless you think it will be funny to your friends”; or: “unless you have nice legs and pretty hair”; or: “unless you’re lucky enough to live in a country so wealthy that you feel entitled to judge people based on their financial expenditures”; or any other clauses.

Selfish and self centred

If I had to boil it down, the reason the actions of the two women in the picture is so offensive is because it so unbelievably selfish and self centred. It inspires an immediate reaction of “who the fuck do you think you are?” What they’re doing is openly flouting one of the core concepts of society.

They’re treating someone else like a piece of shit and laughing about it. They’re doing so because they feel entitled to, because they think themselves ‘better’ than someone who would buy a Miata, and for some reason they think they are exempt from the rules we’re all expected to follow. Plus, they’re ‘rubbing it in’ by gloating about it.

We don’t hate them because they’re beautiful, but it sure doesn’t help their cause.

Don’t get me wrong, people would be furious even if these two women weren’t attractive, but the fact that they are just reminds us all that we know attractive young woman already have a head start in life, and knowing that only makes it more offensive when we see them taking advantage of others or ignoring social norms.

How could they have avoided this?

It’s not surprising to learn that there are people out there who think that their opinion is more important than everyone else’s, or that the rules don’t apply to them, or that they’re better than everyone else, or that they don’t respect other people. As much as we might wish that weren’t true, we know all that there are people out there who think that way.

And that’s where the girls in the picture went wrong. They went beyond thinking in a way that the majority of us consider revolting, they acted on it. If they’d just walked past that Miata and commented on how ‘hideous’ it is to them, nothing would have come of it, but they didn’t. They climbed into a stranger’s car and stomped all over the seats in their heels.

That decision between “should I just think about this or should I actually do it” is the difference between being known as “those two cute girls” and “those crazy bitches”.

Crazy bitch tip: You are not more important than anyone else, and you don’t get to damage other people’s things just because you don’t like them.
