Waiter..."I like your Kerry/Edwards button!"
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 11:46 AM by in_cog_ni_to
We went to TGIF for dinner last night and as soon as we were seated, a waiter came to our table and said, "I like your Kerry/Edwards button! Look at MY button!" He was wearing a McGovern/Shriver '72 campaign button! I remarked that that was a "blast from the past" and he said, "Yeah, this button is older than me!" Me, in my mind...@#$%^&*())(*&^%$#@ LOL! Just kidding. ;) Then, I said, "Do you have a Kerry/Edwards button?" he said "no"....I asked him if he wanted mine and he said "You want to give me YOUR button?" I said..."Yes, I have a lot more. I wear it so I can give it away if I get any comments on it." He said "YES! I would love to have it!" I gave it to him and HE PUT IT ON AND WORE IT WHILE WAITING HIS TABLES! :bounce:

I told my hubby that his manager must be a Democrat or he wouldn't be allowed to wear political buttons while working. The place was packed and he was waiting on a BUNCH of people while wearing his new button. I wanted to give him one of my bumperstickers, but they were in MY car and we had taken my hubbies car to the restaurant. Darn it! I was going to ask him if he had gotten any feedback on his button, but I he was very busy when we left so I didn't bother him. One more Kerry vote...in a republican village! :bounce:

4. I do the same thing
I make them at work. Small 2 1/4" pinback buttons that say Kerry/Edwards 2004. I give them away too if anyone asks about them. Bumper stickers too.

9. He wasn't even our waiter.
Which makes it even better. He went out of his way to come to our table. :)

6. I went into a small cafe having just finished precinct walking.
I had Kerry/Edwards bumper stickers and buttons with me. Before I could even start eating, everyone of them were taken. People got up from their tables and waited in line to get them. I had to go out to my car to get more. Staff and customers took everything I had that day. I had 6 or 7 buttons, and maybe 12 to 15 bumper stickers.
