I just wanted to get a friggen haircut!
The dog was getting a bit shaggy so went down to get a haircut. One of those chain places where you get a decent trim. I walk in and some lady is getting her hair washed and then starts in. "This Obama guy is a Bullshit Liar, ... he is a Socialist, Health care is going to bankrupt us all.." So I sit down in the chair and she utters "It is because stupid people voted for Obama!" At that point I stop the guy cutting my hair and say "Lady, you have the right to your opinion, but when you make general statements that "stupid people voted for Obama" you are calling me stupid. Facts show that higher educated people voted for Obama, and in fact Kerry, so rather than listening to YOUR bullshit I would like to get a haircut. She responded that it was a free Country, her grandfather fought for the US, as did her brothers, blah blah. Great I say, so did relatives of mine, and a lot of other people you would label as Socialist or Communists, so again keep your generalizations to yourself or be prepared to get called out. She finally shut the hell up, but not before muttering something, the only part I could make out was.. "we are at war..." I think it had to do with the Country being at war, as I left I made a point of saying, "need to get home to see if my big tax refund got deposited.
Know what really sucks about the bouncys lately. No cops jumping out of the bushes! :D
