Almost got my ass kicked at Sam's Club
So I was walking out of Sam's club today (where I get my wonderful 30 dollar, 5lbs protein sack) and there was a guy in some bootleg military outfit, standing with a collection plate. He asked me ,what sounded like, if i would like to support the troops. I did the classic "shake your head and grab your pockets" move, to tell him i didn't have any change. Right after I did that, this fat lady sitting on a shopping buggy yelled "you better watch your fucking back". The dude then told me that I didn't deserve the freedom the troops provide for me. I was kind of confused so I just decided to walk away but as I started to leave the lady called "I hope the terrorists get your ass first".
Afterwards I figured I hadn't heard the guy correctly and maybe he asked "do you support the troops". Either way, they really overreacted and it scares me that this is probably how allot of people respond.
Apparently I only have freedom to agree with the popular beliefs (not saying I'm against the troops but that's what they thought I was saying)
