Background: After 38 years of teaching, I retired five years ago. My son, Chad, has taught for seven years, and we run a nice little propeller business called Hill Marine. Chad and I probably average 60 hour weeks (of work), in the summer and 40 hour weeks in the winter.
We have a lot of projects and keep busy. Chad has www.hillmarine.com set up as an on line store and I sell through E-Bay. Neither of us like to talk on the phone because e-mails are easier and we are actually able to think out our prop selections. But we do answer the phone when it rings......sometimes...
The phone rings. I answer it. "Is the owner there?" the lady asks. I say, "This is he"....Oh, forgot to mention, I snapped a tendon in my arm, had surgery, and have been in a cast for three weeks, so work has REALLY piled up as I work slow anyway, but with one arm, I have the nickname of "Lightning". And I maybe in a shit mood...
The lady says, "I'm with the Times." I say, "I'm not interested."
She says, "Why not? And adds she has been with the Times for 17 years."
I say, "Why am in not iterested in that Communist Rag? I'll tell you why...Two weeks ago I stopped the Register, after being a subscriber since 1962 BECAUSE they are too LIBERAL, and you are more LIBERAL....I'm totally sick of hearing Obama's BULLSHIT as iof it were helping our country."
She says, "You won't read about Obama today.?
I say, "I know..Obama is vacationing in Marksist Vineyard and Obama has told you Liberal Pukes to shut up and you did...."
She says, Well, the Register will go broke before the Times....."
I say lady, "ALL newspapers are going to go broke if they only write about LIBERAL crap...."
She says, "Why are you so ANGRY?????"
I say, "Well, I have a house in escrow, 50 props to get out, I'm woring one handed, I have another house to list.....AND I'm wasting my time talking to you....."
I hung up...She's right, I'm just an angry old white guy, trying to enjoy my Golden Years.....
ADD: At one time the whig makers in this country tried to get a law passed that would have required all males to wear a whig....There was no government bail out for whig makers..
Cash for clunkers sure helped Toyota....Obama motors didn't do well.
Rush Limbaugh is really a great teacher. He explained that Socialism is when the government owns everything and tries to run it. Fascism is when private people own the companies but the government tells them how to run it.
