I don’t normally like to talk in depth about politics here, but something this morning happened that was quite funny.
I’ve got two bumper stickers on my truck – one normal Kerry/Edwards sticker, and below it, a sticker that says “Bush Made Me A Democrat“. This is true, as I supported Bush in the 2000 presidential election.
Anyway, this morning I was sitting at the stop light at Burnet & Rutland on my way to work. A guy pulls up and stops in the turn lane to my right, and honks his horn to get my attention. I look over, turn down my radio, and roll down my window.
He’s in a suit and tie, and driving a luxury SUV. “Bush made you a Democrat?” he said. I look over, grin, and say “Yeah.” He looked back at me with a look that could best be described as “Punk!” or “Dirty hippie!”, yells “GET A HAIRCUT, SON!”, stomps on his gas, and squeals off.
Even funnier is the fact that my hair doesn’t even touch my collar in back.
I may not agree with everyone on their political views, but I don’t normally discuss it in public, and I definitely don’t harass people in traffic about it.
