So, did everybody enjoy that extra hour of sleep this morning? I know I did. Even the dogs enjoyed it. The only bad thing about it will be that we're going to lose it come spring.
The racist customer called me at work yesterday. Her flooring was scheduled to be delivered and she hadn't paid attention... at all. You can pay an extra $20 and get a one hour window, or just pay standard fee and get a phone call 1/2 hour before the truck arrives. Standard delivery is between 0600 and 2000 (8 PM). Well, she thought they be hauling her less expensive flooring into her house between 0600 and 0800. So... I had to correct her error. She took it well.
A lot of people have been writing about the midterms and not just bloggers. I don't have cable, but I'm sure if I did every other commercial would be political. Turn out is supposed to be exceptional. Write-in ballots are on par with a presidential election. Nobody wants to have another repeat of the shit show which started in 2016. Someone in Politco wrote that "this cycle Democrats will crawl across broken glass" to vote. Were that only the case. There are voters registered Democrat who will not cast a vote because... they just don't care. They will come up with some excuse. In Pennsylvania, storms are forecast for Tuesday afternoon. For some people, that's a really good excuse. "I might get rained on." Their minds don't even think about the alternative. They see the racism and hatred in our Capital and say things like..."well, it doesn't effect me personally." They don't understand that is how fascism starts, when people start saying "it doesn't effect me personally." And then it's too late. Power is the most corrupting force in the Universe. Democracy fights that corruption. Democracy takes the power from a few and gives it to the many. Not voting permits those corrupt few the power to control your destiny. And for those who say "it doesn't effect me personally," believe me, they will roll you over with a steamroller if you give them the power to do so. They do not care about you 'personally.' All they care about is their power and their control.
Go out and vote on Tuesday. Your future is at stake.
And if you don't vote, don't tell me about it because you will be getting an earful.ReplyDelete
And you won't like it.
And I'll back you up sister!Delete
If they don't vote they're pretty much failed humans.Delete
I second bob. FUCK YER LAZY ASS if you don't vote!ReplyDelete
It maybe be they are more GREEDY than LAZY, nothing corrupts like money and powerDelete
Sadly I think you're right. A lot of people just don't care. I hope we will be surprised and we will see a glimmer of hope that this madness will end in two years.ReplyDelete
I believe more people care than we might think... they know if we don't put a stop to the hatred now it's only going to grow.Delete
A very good post Dave. I hope too your done with this woman now?!? I also saw my neighbor out this weekend who is running for state rep here. I think she may just have a chance now, but I'm still not sure. I have a post coming up about it tomorrow. Im keeping my fingers crossed.ReplyDelete
Keep everything crossed, toes, fingers, arms, and legs.Delete
The install is sold, so if the 'racist' has to complain, she's going to have to take it to someone else.
