You guys would have loved this
Today we're having closing LPAC meetings (that's for ESL students) and I am the "administrator" that has to sign all of the documents. I was the only male in there; the rest were female ESL teachers, a counselor, and the head of ESL for the district.

It was time to sign the documents, and no one had a pen. One person went to my office, and unknowingly picked up my Bill Clinton signature pen which was bought at his presidential library. When she brought it in, I said, "Oh, my Bill Clinton pen" knowing it would get a rise out of the Bushbots in there. So the teacher said "yuck" and said something like, "we'll need to do DNA testing on it."

In which I replied, "I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN MY BUSH PEN, BUT IT WAS COVERED IN BLOOD AND OIL." As you can imagine, a deathly silence occurred.

2. Ouch.
Damn. There's not too much to say to that. Did you at least get icy stares from the Bush-bots in your department?

14. Yep. One is my fellow counselor, and she smiled at me
because she knows me too well, and we're great friends. The others, well, they were shocked to say the least.

13. I have been reprimanded this year
During the election season, I made a Kerry joke and a Bush joke. The Bush joke didn't even mention his name, while the Kerry joke mentioned his. In otherwords, the Bush joke was "implied."

A parent or a teacher in my building called the central office, which rebuked me for my implied Bush joke. I never heard anything about my Kerry joke.

16. Hey, man, I'll accept it
I'm getting so damned cynical in my old age, and I just spout off what I think. I really believe there are more out there that secretely agree with me, but are still afraid to speak out and let their true feelings be known.

Ah, George Bush's 'Merca.

I can't stand how they think it is perfectly acceptable to make anti-Clinton cracks, but they are they first ones to label you anti-American if you dare say something negative about the Idiot in Chief. Sounds like you shut them up real good.

27. Excellent, dude!
I'm pretty good at comin' up with stuff on the spot, but it's still only %50 or so when I have anything at all... and don't ya just hate it when you come up with the perfect line like two minutes too late?...
That one was killer!
Jeez, when are people gonna fuckin' grow up, anyway? STILL gigglin' over a blowjob rumor from over 10 years ago...
All I know is THIS: In my ENTIRE professional life, the only time I made ANY money at all, enough to survive on decently, was when Clinton was in office.
Reagan, b41, b43... they stole every goddamn xmas I can remember...

God, I HATE working with idiots like that...
Here's to ya!

36. love, love, love these stories
Love to hear when people won't be cowed. A poster earlier in this thread mentioned my first thought, too -- these people think it's open season on Bill Clinton, but heaven forbid we take the name of Bush in vain.
Excellent response -- I admire your courage.

43. OMG! This is the STUFF we need more of! Let them have it between
the eyes at every opportunity.... I had one at freep'n Macy's tonight. Went to get a credit which I had called in about prior to going there to get a credit. The manager just happened to coincidentally be the one I had spoken to on the phone. The clerk eyes me up and down as I walked into the store with my son. She saw my blue bracelet and started looking down her nose. Before I could finish my speel she interrupts me and picks up the phone and dials as I am trying to remember the person's name I had spoken with who had told me to have the clerk call her if they didn't know how to do it. This bitch thought I was making up a lie and a "get something for nothing democrat." Well guess who picked up the phone? Yep none other than Helena the person I had talked to and the stupid clerk made the mistake of saying her name. I went into a tirade! "Yes! SHE THINKS I'M LYING AND SHE DOESN'T LIKE MY BLUE BRACELET! COULD YOU PLEASE COME DOWN HERE AND TALK TO ME!" loud enough for the entire store to hear! Helena came running down the escalator but not before I told the dumb ass clerk that "IT IS NOT OK TO TREAT PAYING CUSTOMERS POLITICALLY! AND I DON'T APPRECIATE BEING THOUGHT OF AS A LIAR BEFORE I EVEN FINISH MY SENTENCE. YOU ARE RUDE AND POLITICALLY IGNORANT OR YOU WOULD HAVE COMPLIMENTED ME ON MY BRACELET INSTEAD OF LOOKING DOWN YOUR NOSE AT ME FOR WEARING IT!" She was speachless and I got my credit from Helena, who appeared to be a good dem and very polite and intelligently professional. End of story. Sorry for the rant.
