Two scolds came into the city and began upbrading passers by.
FIRST SCOLD: HYPOCRITES!
SECOND SCOLD: WEAKLING!
FIRST SCOLD: Fools!
SECOND SCOLD: Insensitive ones!
FIRST SCOLD: Boors!
SECOND SCOLD: You are addicted to luxury and don’t care about your neighbor’s pain.
FIRST SCOLD: You pretend to be followers in the genteel tradition but you are simply cowards.
TWO SCOLDS TOGETHER: CHANGE YOUR WAYS!
Later in a local gastro-pub, the two scolds share some reflections over beer and sandwiches.
FIRST SCOLD: Do you ever get off on scolding people?
SECOND SCOLD:Ever? Try always!
FIRST SCOLD: No! Really?
SECOND SCOLD: Yes.
FIRST SCOLD: Go on. Tell me!
SECOND SCOLD: The feeling I get when I interrogate somebody and make them realize that they are wrong turns me on.
FIRST SCOLD: Like…you get hard?
SECOND SCOLD: Hard as keeping your moral compass in a confusing world.
FIRST SCOLD: Do you scold yourself for doing that?
SECOND SCOLD: No. Should I?
FIRST SCOLD: It’s not my place to say.
