No I Won't!

This morning, I was waiting in line to order a cup of coffee when a grizzly looking man approached me. He was dressed as what appeared to be some sort of lumberjack (what? don't all lumberjacks wear red and black flannel?) and was staring at my Obama pin.



Lumberjack: That's a nice pin, but you know, you can take it off now.
Me: Oh, no. I think I'll keep it on.
Lumberjack: I mean, it makes me happy too... but you can still take it off.
Me: Nope. I'm leaving it on. Thanks.

lol what a weirdo, like he took that much interest in you taking your pin off.

lol! He's like the guy cleaning up after a parade shooing people away to their homes.

You've got years to wear that pin! = )

I would have said "I'll take it off in 8 years..."

I wore my "Ba Rock It" shirt the day after the election. And I will continue to wear it. It's also a really comfy shirt. :)

Lol, you're so brave going toe to toe with a big grizzly lumberjack. I also wore my barack t-shirt the day after the election and seeing as how it is the comfiest shirt in the history of the world (I think they do that on purpose) I plan on wearing it until it disintegrates.

So crazy weird -- why would he tell you to take it off if he was an Obama supporter? Silly lumberjack!

And guess what - today I still have on my Obama bracelet! YES!

LizSara said...

What a freak (him not you, you understand). I have loads of badges/buttons/pins on my handbag strap and I wouldn't take any of them off ever

Jamie said...

Same here. I love my Ba Rock It shirt and will continue to wear it. Yes, he won but why not continue to show support? It's not like your shoving it in peoples' faces.

Boo to that guy!

that's so stupid. who cares if you want to keep wearing it. it's not like you were wearing a pin from the guy who lost--you got the winner's pin...it's probably cool if you still wear it.

What a creeper X.x At least he didn't cut you open with his axe!!

That obscure and mildly inappropriate Little Red Riding Hood reference? Let's pretend it didn't just happen. -gulp-

:D

Thats funny!

I'm trying to source Obama "gear" in the UK.... I want to be the British Obama rep :D

Weird. I finally got my Obama pin in the mail. Apparently someone wanted it just as badly as I did and tried to RIP OPEN MY ENVELOPE. They must have been stupid, though, because they managed in opening it, but didn't manage to get the pin.

That is all mine.

Bizarre. Why is it any of his business, first of all, and also why did he feel the need to actually say something to you? You're going to say 'Oh, thanks, I had completely forgotten that was there!' Weird.

Weird. I think continued support is a great thing!
