Yesterday I was paying $1.85 for gas. $20 gets me half a tank.
I notice out of the corner of my eye a young black guy looking at me.
He nods and yells, "Bet you thought you'd never pay $1.95 for a gallon of gas again!"
I nod and smile. I'm paying $1.85. He must be buying higher octane I think, or else he doesn't know how much the gas actually is.
He says, "You know what it is don't you? The Republicans are OUT and the Democrats are in charge now. The Republicans have been stealing gas....blah blah Bush blah Bush blah...".
My half-tank is done. I wonder, should I say something? Then I realize he's probably seen my McCain for President sticker still on the front of my truck.
As I open my door I yell, "Don't worry, the Republicans will be back in 4 years!"
Doggone it. I upset him.
"NO they won't....no they WON'T. They're all a bunch of s###.
Shame, shame, shame on me.
He was still yelling when I drove off.
I didn't have the heart to tell him that Bush was still our President.
