Vaguely disturbing day...
So I have a couple teabaggers in the practice...one-on-one not bad sorts as you would expect, but my god, what effluvia emanates from their mouths...it's like someone put in the cassette tape and hit 'Play'...
Anyway, one of them arrived today, breathless, with a story (I'll paraphrase): Teabagger goes to the bank and has a sit-down with one of the personnel, an African-American(!) no less, and at the end of the transaction, the teabagger says to the bank employee, "Merry Christmas." At which point the bank employee says, "Thank you. You wouldn't believe what happened to me earlier today. I said "Merry Christmas" to a customer and he started shouting at me that he was an atheist and how dare I impose my religion on him and..." I'll leave out the rest - I'm sure you've heard it.
So I smiled and did my work - I don't comment much on this stuff either way anymore, there's no percentage in it...on the way out the teabagger repeated the story VERBATIM no fewer than three times to each staff member who was unfortunate enough to get in the way.
I told them that I didn't believe a word of it
, and that it was probably the assignment for the day from GlennBeckCentral or similar "authority".
