More Pro-Choice Morons
Recently I saw a bumper sticker here in Boston that read:
DBC - Dorchester By Choice
For y'all alien to Boston, Dorchester is *the hood*. It's got to be the most dangerous place in Massachusetts - BY FAR.
First of all, I don't believe the *choice* aspect. Granted, there are some really stupid people out there, but I'll bet in these cases, *choice* has been conflated with *price*. I know a guy who bought in an undesirable hood as well. He claimed to have wanted his kids to "grow up in the city" when really, that was what they could afford when they bought (at the peak of the market). Now that the kids are here, they are looking to *choose* to move out!
So, choosing to live in Dorchester (i.e. endangering you and your family's personal safety) when you can afford otherwise is Marginalizable enough all by itself. BUT, to brandish the DBC sticker on your car? That is profoundly Moronic.
One of my best teachers ever's favorite saying was "Don't DISPLAY your ignorance."
The next time I pull up alongside a car with this DBC sticker I will roll down my window and say, "Thank you so much for living in Dorchester. Hopefully you'll get stabbed and the world will be saddled with one less chauvinistic Moron!!!"
I'm open to other suggestions as well. There has to more than a couple *perfect retorts* out there.
Why again would anyone choose to send their kids to Dorchester High School?
By the way, I didn't imagine this DBC sticker. Read this.
