MLMM First Line Friday — The Effete Snob

“Leave me alone,” she snapped, juking around him on the sidewalk and hurrying away with a quick clack of heels.

This used to be such a jolly place, she thought as she picked up her pace heading toward her car. Now I’m being accosted by these self-righteous people who try to tell me that I need to find Jesus or be prepared to spend eternity in hell. Who the hell do they think they are? Just look at what has become of our beautiful city. It’s swarming with filth and populated by ugly, smelly, low-life, homeless people who mooch off of society. They shuck and jive their way through life with no accountability whatsoever for their actions.

She picked up her pace and reached her Porsche, got in, and started the powerful engine. That does it, she thought. I’m going to leave the city, drive home, take off my heels, change into my bikini, and walk to my private beach where I don’t have to deal with the riff-raff, the dregs of society, or the hoi-polloi for one-minute more.


Written for today’s First Line Friday prompt from Mindlovemisery Menagerie. The first line is: “Leave me alone,” she snapped, juking around him on the sidewalk and hurrying away with a quick clack of heels. Also written for these Daily Prompts: The Daily Spur (jolly), MMA Storytime (righteous), Word of the Day Challenge (mooch), Your Daily Word Prompt (jive), Ragtag Daily Prompt (accountability), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (drive), and Just Jot it January (beach).

Note from Fandango: I have neither sympathy nor empathy for the protagonist in this post. Her thoughts, words, and actions in no way reflect my personal perspectives. But as I looked at the prompt words and the opening line presented today, this is what came to mind.

    I don’t like her very much… the homeless are people too. It can happen to anyone at any time. I am glad you added that note at the end. I know some people who live in large cities often have a negative outlook towards the homeless as it is more “in your face” than the suburbs or smaller towns. Way too many are steps away from there now too.
