So I had to write about this somewhere since it still pisses me off and the asshole left my store like 20 minutes ago. We’re asking for donations for a cause that supports malnourished children and pregnant mothers around the world, so I have this customer dressed in a business suit, shopping for pricey sports nutrition stuff and I ask him for a dollar donation. He chuckles, and says “No, Obama will give everything to them anyway.” Then he starts going off about jobs and health care and socialism and whatnot. I’m just “yes”-ing him to death so he leaves without me throwing a fist into his douchey jaw. And why does this piss me off so much? You know, it’s enough when people that I’ve never met try to get me to find Jesus after a 7-minute conversation at the cash register, but the way he said this really irked me. What I should have done was make him feel like a true dick by mentioning that because of Obama’s health care reform my 11-year-old diabetic brother gets all of his supplies for free (which used to cost my parents some ridiculous number, pretty sure like over $3000 a year or something crazy). But I care way too much about my job to risk getting in trouble over something stupid. I just don’t understand why people have to throw their opinions in the faces of people they don’t even know.
