"I Work My arse Off All Day, And These Goddamned Hippies Close Down The Brooklyn Bridge So I Can't Get Home? That Ain't Right!"

Occupy Wall Street

The “Occupy Wall Street” protestors have succeeded in significantly raising their visibility, after swarming the Brooklyn Bridge this afternoon and shutting down traffic.

The protestors say they are protesting corporate involvement in politics and bank bailouts, among other things.

Not everyone is sympathetic, however.

From the New York Post:

One irate driver, a Ground Zero construction worker, blasted the pedestrians.

“I work my arse off all day, and these goddamned hippies close down the Brooklyn Bridge so I can’t get home?” he said. “This ain’t right!”
