Friday here in Central Pa, just as it is where ever you might be... as long you're on this side of the International Date Line. For all of you Aussies, and Indonesians, and everyone else on the other side, well... hello.
A number of my co-workers have become Delta Disciples, two of whom are now in the ICUs of 2 different hospitals, both having serious difficult breathing, both on oxygen, though I understand neither has so far been intubated. Oh, and both are unvaxed Trump supporters, as if I needed to tell you that. As John Gray says, "hey ho."
An older couple stopped in on Monday complaining about issues with their install. Older and, as if I need to tell you, MAGAs. A serious problem was discovered when they removed their old carpet, a large crack in the concrete pad of their family room. That, however, was not the problem. Nope. Their problem was with the installers who just happened to be Asian. "Right off the boat," the woman said several times. "And all they did was scream and yell at each other." At one point she said, "and I was worried you might send Mexicans, and what you sent were Chinese, and you could tell they were right off the boat." I suppose you've already surmised what they were complaining about. What this couple didn't know was that the installers were in constant communication with us, emailing a number of pictures of the crack, and documenting the treatment they were receiving. What did we do? We refunded their installation charge and politely sent them packing. They will have to find someone else to do their installation.
Just think, in a few days winter will be here!
It's hard to believe people will be that openly racist and vile, but Dump seems to have emboldened the trash humans to speak out loud and proud.ReplyDelete
As for your co-workers...hey ho!
It was obvious from the way they talked that this was normal conversation for them.Delete
If there dumb enough to bail the great ass out...let them go broke I say. I thought it was swell of Mother Nature to send the omicron virus just in time for Christmas. She isn't giving up yet......ReplyDelete
it just goes to show how desperate this party is.Delete
Clearly the GOP is less about party and more about Thing 45ReplyDelete
Without him they are... nothing.Delete
Oh, I totally believe the MAGAts being absolute dicks. Glad your store didn't put up with their bullshit. Let them find an all-white crew. Good luck!ReplyDelete
And I can totally believe you have workmates with COVID. Freedumb!
The UK is gonna be feeling more and more pain as time goes by. May the Brexit be with them.
They still bought the product from us, so we didn't lose anything. At one point there were 3 shocked people listening to them... and this couple didn't notice the stunned faces.Delete
I'm so glad your company refunded that pair of racists and sent them on their way! As a white person I have NO idea how it would feel to face that kind of racism day in day out - it's horrendous! And as for Bojo I was DELIGHTED that they lost that seat. More to the point it was the seat that was vacated by Owen Patterson (the seller of influence for cash) that Bojo tried to save by disbanding the ethics committee that was supposed to look into his wheeler-dealings. And to think one of the Conservative MPs said "one more strike and you're out"!!!! What the hell, hasn't that man done enough dammage already?ReplyDelete
I thought you'd get a tickle out of the BoJo bit, I did. As for the couple, you really can't believe people like that exist until you meet them. They are living in another world.Delete
