Some really annoyingly conservative people live in Alabama. Weird people come into Walgreens at night. So when I work the night shift and a nasty ass redneck comes in and starts ranting about how Obama has no guts... Weirdness happens.
So here's the story.
I work the front register on the night shift at Walgreens. This happened Sunday night, so some people were stopping by to pick up Sunday newspapers on there way home from.... What ever rednecks do at 9:30 at night.
A guy comes in wearing really filthy over alls. This is why I say he was a nasty red neck. I don't have a problem with red necks, this one was LITERALLY dirty. He rants at me for a while about how mad he is that we're out of Sunday papers. I try to tell him that if he's going to wait till the middle of the night to buy a newspaper we will be out of a lot of them. So he buys some other paper, and continues to rant about how he won't get to read something they wrote about Obama. I'm ringing up his paper, and the register malfunctions so he gets a LONG WHILE to talk. He goes on about how Obama's "got no guts" And anyone who voted for him was an idiot.
I voted for Obama, so I couldn't help but raise an eyebrow at him. I told him I voted for Obama and he starts yelling saying "I don't got no damn sense!"
By this point the register is working again so I can check him out and move on with my life. But as I'm doing that I said this:
"Sir, I'm not going to stand here and argue with you about the bravery of a man neither of us have ever met, based solely off how quickly he'll send young men to die over seas every time they do something you don't like."
He was fuming by this point, but I had clearly stumped him. He grabbed his paper and stormed out of the store.
I felt rather good about myself.
