while getting gas at the Shell station, and I'm sure the first part of this conversation had to have been fascinating. Two ppl behind the counter, one foreign girl and American guy and customer, a National Guard guy.
She: You know who I think should be President?? Steven Seagal. I think he'd kick ass all over those foreigners.
Color me intrigued.
He1: Yeah!! Good choice! What about Schwarzeneggar? Didn't you see "Predator"?? He would totally kick Seagal ass AND the rest of the world.
She: Yeah, too bad he can't be president because he wasn't born here. I can't believe that's a LAW.
NGguy: You know the problem is that we live in the cesspool of the world. That's what I'm here for ... to clean up this country and make it what it used to be ... SAFE for the American people.
I was just standing there smiling at them all. Apparently it didn't look like a genuine smile 'cuz the guy behind the counter had to ask me who I thought should be President.
Me: Aw hell. I'm thinking that if you ppl are going to elect another actor into office it should be Chuck Norris, 'cuz really, who has EVER beat him? No one.
All of them agreed with me. It was quiet for a second while I paid for my fuel so I had to ask:
Me: Are ya'll planning on voting next month?
Two behind the counter said no. Nat Guard guy said yes.
Me: looking at the two behind the counter It's a damned shame you two aren't voting.
And I left.
