Customer wanted my company to make baseballs with the President's face on them

So that they could take batting practice by hitting him with their bats. That is what the guy ordering at our storefront told us.

It was one of my favorite moments when I had a chance to tell him to get the hell out of my store.



Is there a point here? Not so much. Just that the sore loser parade continues. I'm just glad that I was able to do my part in telling them to deal with it.

1. Tell them you'll be willing to put Mitt Romney for your usual fees.

 

Instead of PBO.

2. Thomm Hartman has another response.

You don't say "no". You simply offer a price that's so outrageous, they get the idea.

he could have use the Police sketch from that case. I have a feeling the angry right winger would not be able to tell the difference

49. I still need someone to photoshop this poster to make it current:



That's what he could have offered the guy on a ball. But honestly, his response was excellent. It was a call out to every Beckhead, Dittohead, Foxhead, etc.

We need to wave the signs everytime the nattering nabobs get in front of a camera to toss their latest swill. People see through their house of cards now.

I mean that could be considered a threat to the President. Maybe I'm being over sensitive but it's a short step from hitting the President's image to hitting the President.

31. Good for you. I have friends who own a flag shop and so many of their customers are RWers

that they have to put up with a lot of BS or lose a lot of business. They will occasionally refute a blatant lie, but just can't afford to alienate the customers. I don't know how they do it, because they're both progressives.

40. That was the best response!


Any other funny response such as "No but I can make baseballs with Romney or Ryan or.. face" would made him felt that it was tit for tat on your part and that it was ok for him to be such an ass. The best response of was exactly what you did or something like it like get the F out of here. He either felt shamed (doubt it), or was left seething. No need to insult Romney (at least not in this occasion and instead of this arsehole) or others.

45. You know what? I probably would have said sure


I believe they come 16 to a box.

I would have put instead of the President I would have put a different republican scumbag on each ball.
Rush
Hannity
Oreily
Koch bros
Romney
Ryan
mccain

You get the ideal

then if he doesnt like it say sorry we could not find the presidents picture to put on the balls but these are half price for being so ass backwards that only morons vote or support them.

And if he doesnt check until he gets to the ball field...EVEN BETTER...maybe wrap em up real nice so he waits...

ok ok ok I am a little evil
