Standing in Line

Thrifty Words Challenge #6: Service

We wait at the service desk. Accommodations, supposedly for all, exist only for a privileged few: those who believe their white and orange hair give them the right to speak loud and long and over the rest of us.

The right to lie, to smile, as they steal our healthcare.



We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
