This reminds me of the time when I was shopping at Krogers, I came out to my car with groceries and this *lady* was waiting by my car to attack me for having a *support the troops* ribbon on my car....my husband, Mike, was with me and he had just returned from Iraq....needless to say this woman picked on the wrong person to try to intimidate....hehehe
That reminded me of when we had our shop. I used to have a radio on behind the counter and I would usually play talk radio - Rush, etc. We had the shop for 13 years, and it would always happen around election time - after awhile I noticed the pattern. A "customer" would come in the shop and after a time would come up to the counter and say, "I was going to buy something here, but I noticed you have Rush Limbaugh on the radio - I won't be back!"
I would usually laugh and say, "I'm so sorry that you can't tolerate hearing a different opinion than your own".
These incidents would always happen in clusters of several during the day with several different people - usually on the same day and then it wouldn't happen again until the next election time. The funniest one was one of those days when I had already had a couple of whiners in and it was late in the day. A man came in the front entrance, walked in about three or four feet and announced loudly, "Well, I was going to buy something in here but I hear that you have Rush on the radio so I'm going to leave".
I had to laugh and said, "That isn't Rush, that's Sean Hannity!"
