Reminds me of Kevin's famous line from Home Alone:

"Hey guys, I'm eating junk and watching rubbish. You better come in here and stop me!"

Way back when, I worked at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN one summer as a "cast member."
The "guests" that caused the most ruckus and 999 (Security) calls were either
a) rednecks on booze, crack or meth or
b) ultra-conservative People of the Book.
The men were the worst; arguing every point, situation or purchase and treating the female cast members like they were servants, or worse.
My tour of duty was ended with my slugging a Jordanian who called a fellow pregnant co-worker a "fat, disgusting pig" in my presence.
There are limits to my patience.
The world will never love us. They respect us - they might even grow to fear us.
But they will never love us, for we have too much audacity!

- Theodore Roosevelt – “The Wind & the Lion” (1975)
