This story comes from The Mail Online, and just goes to show the absolute stupidity of some people.
This absolute numpty decided that her needs were FAR greater than those of everyone else around her, and decided to drive her car through a barricade of cones, right into the path of a Half-Marathon, endangering everyone participating.
But it’s ok.
In her words she was – “driving slowly..”
Her reason for doing this was simple.
She was on her way to host a “Workshop” and had “no information” about the road closure.
Plus – she was driving slowly…
Makes all the difference, right?
So after endangering the lives of several people, giving ridiculous excuses for her conduct and absolutely refusing to accept responsibility for her actions, how does she respond when told by a Plymouth City council Highways official to stop and wait for the Police?
“Well YOU can call the Workshop to tell them I’ll be late!”
You couldn’t make it up.
Privilege exists in ALL aspects of society, not just in Cis White Males. And although she doesn’t explicitly say something along the lines of “but I’m a woman!!” – you know for a fact it’s what she’s thinking.
The fact that hosting a “Workshop” is more important to her than the safety of everyone around her speaks volumes.
Just another “enlightened” soul on the Path to Entitlement.
