Well, it finally cost me to be outspoken. [View all]

I was approached in the local grocery store parking lot by a panhandler. Said he didn't have any gas money for his car, only a $10 Canadian bill and did I have any spare change. I said no but there is a bank right across the parking lot that will exchange the Canadian money. Then he saw my truck tailgate:

and launched into an anti Obama tirade and how I was a socialist who hated America etc. so I said whatever and took my two year old grand daughter into the store for a few items as he drove away in a late model Honda Accord.

When I came out there was a note on the windshield, "Your left front tire is flat. Hope the rest of your day goes better." The tire had a one inch slash in it, 'bout the size of an average pocket knife.

Seems the irony of begging for money while being for smaller government was lost on him. I will use my smart phone to take pictures of anyone who panhandles me in the future.

$270 bucks for a new tire.
