I went to my post office Monday as I do most days and I parked in the empty disabled space right by the front door. I mention this because I have a small 4″x 4″ sticker on my car that says “Stop Bigotry” with a styled graphic (not a cartoon) of Trump that makes him look better than he does. You have to be right next to the car to even see it.
As I got into the PO a young guy about 30, six feet, bland looking with short hair and a beard, approached me and asked me if I was voting for Hillary or for Trump. Hillary, of course, I replied. He proceeded to tell me, as fact, that Bill and Hillary were responsible for 88 murders so I guess he was an Alex Jones fan. If I had wanted to converse with him, I would have told him that getting away with 88 murders is quite an accomplishment for someone in the public eye but I didn’t want to hear any more so I just walked down the hall to my PO box.
I took my mail and started to leave but the guy had waited for me and now he wanted to talk about Benghazi. I told him to look it up on Snopes and headed for the door. He still wouldn’t shut up and I ended up calling him an asshole. He drove away in a white pickup.
The next day I called the main post office and asked what I should do if it happens again. They suggested calling “the local police”. And I would suggest if this happens to you, saying very loudly “Don’t talk to me”. Then if they persist, call the cops. You never know. They might show up.
Those of you who know me, know that I’m 5’2″, am about to turn 69 years old and park in a disabled space. Wonder if he would have picked on someone his own size?
