Busybodies and the Bridge

On busybodies and the anti-suicide bridge project:

If someone is suffering in abject misery with no end in sight, exactly what right does anyone else have to tell them to just keep on suffering!?!?

I hate busybodies in any form. Therefore, I’ve come up with a standard phrase, an essential rule of thumb, to all the worse-than-useless quidnuncs, whether they are government officials who actually try to legislate their stupid, deranged, delusional, and filthy beliefs, or anyone else who thinks they can tell me or anyone else what to do.

Mind your own business and get the hell out of my face.”—Christina Marlow, Summerland
