05:30 pm: Back Words

I watched TV last night, read the paper, and went to bed to read at 2am. I stopped at 5am and set the alarm at 1pm. When it went off, I got up. I had to mail the check for the vet and I had a coupon for Captain D's (fast food fish place). I was sitting at a table behind two women and one of them spent most of the time talking:

We're all liberals when we're young, then we grow up. Liberals have no humor, they can't even laugh at Nobama! And it's not racism, racism is gone. Although, back with segregated schools, they had strict supervisors and dressed nicely and sat up straight. [moved to a taxi driver she uses a lot] He's so nice, once he forgot to turn the machine on and he didn't charge me! [almost certainly law] He's from Somalia and they're so much better than the Americans, they don't even have tattoos.

I was done eating and was torn between staying and getting madder, or going home, and went home. Truly blind woman.

Bernie Sanders has been talking in the Senate against tax cuts since 10:30am ET.

Better then the two old ladies that sat behind my daughter and I a few weeks ago. One was determined that only she knew the cause of death of all their friends. She went into loud graphic detail of how all her friends had died. Then she started in on how her best friend Kathy had died of some horrible cancer. Her companion asked her which Kathy she was talking about as she hadn't known that any of their friends named Kathy had died. The woman stated the last name and the friend dared to disagree. "Oh no, you are very wrong, Kathy didn't die of any cancer."
"What do you mean, I was best friends with her and held her hand as she died. I sure as hell know how she died!"
"You are most definitely wrong!"
"You stupid cow, how dare you!"
"I'm stupid? You are completely off your rocker. How dare you!"
At this point everyone in the restaurant was staring at them as they shouted at each other.
"You know how I know Kathy **** didn't die of cancer, you moron? Because I'm Kathy, and you need to get into a nursing home if you can't even remember who you are eating dinner with!" With that the friend stormed out of the place and the loud mouth announced to the diners, "She's wrong, I know Kathy died of cancer. I held her hand as she died."
My daughter and I laughed about it for the rest of the night.

Wow, that's really crazy! And there's always the possibility, I suppose, that the loud one was right!

Re: Liberals. I think anybody who generalizes about an entire class of people is doomed to be wrong. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there were a whole lot of liberals who lack senses of humor, but there are also a whole lot whose senses of humor work just fine. Which category I'm in depends on the topic (and a lot of other things, like how I'm feeling that day). I think I'm glad you went home, though. You don't *have* to put up with opinionated jerks!

Very true -- we aren't all the same just because we identify in one political direction. I'm glad I came home -- I might not have managed to put up with the racism if I didn't.
