I had an encounter with 2 anti mask customers

at my job today. The company i work for has told us if another customer complains about someone not wearing a mask, we as managers are to offer the non mask person a mask. If they refuse, we have to let it go. They don't want us possibly getting into a violent situation.

So I offer this guy a mask and he looks at me stupidly and says "Nope!" His wife just shakes her head at me as I try to offer her one. I was livid at how they reacted, but I just walked away.

My District Manager comes in about 10 minutes later and asked me how I was doing. I told him I was fed up with these non mask wearing people and told him that he can fire me if he wants, but that I had just texted my store team and told them they are not obligated to treat these idiots nicely. Yes, we have to let them shop, but just scan their groceries quickly and get them out of here. If they ask you where something is, just point in its general direction, etc.

He wasn't very pleased that I had done that, but too bad. I understand they don't want us getting into violent situations but damn i wish they would hire armed security to deal with these idiots. But they won't because businesses are looking out for their bottom line. That's the problem with government leaving it up to businesses to enforce these mandates.

This is in Texas by the way.

4.3 million

(and growing). That is the current difference in popular vote total between Biden and the dipshit. And we are all still waiting on pins and needles to see who wins the presidency. Shaking. My. Damn. Head. Yes, I spelled it out. In what normal democracy would this make sense? Electoral college gots to go.

Two elections in a row.

The Democrat receives roughly 3 million more votes than the republican (this year may actually be more than 3 million), and we still lose, or come extremely close to losing the election. Who in their right mind could look at this and think, "yeah, that's a good system for picking the leader of a country." ? There needs to be a real serious push to get rid of the electoral college.

This election has changed my mind completely.

I live in a red state, but in a solidly blue county. I've decided I can't trust that voting early or by mail is the right thing to do anymore. It seems republicans have developed ways to sabotage those methods. They've fucked with the mail and I think they have lots of time to fuck with ballots cast early. I'm gonna hate doing it, but I'm voting on election day in person moving forward. I think republican voters know something we don't. That's why they all vote on election day.

If you missed it...

watch the final West Ham goal against Tottenham! West Ham was down 3-0 early, but came back and tied the match on a ridiculously amazing goal in the 95th minute!

Go Hammers!!!

Just early voted in Harris County, Texas.

I'll just give the facts of what I experienced in the polling location I went to.

I arrived about 7:55 am. I was one of about 120 people lined up outside the building. I was one of the younger voters. I'm 44. I did see about 7 people who seemed younger. Four definitely were younger with 2 of them being first time voters. They announce to everyone when a 1st timer is voting and everyone claps and cheers! I thought that was great.

My district is red, but our county is solidly blue. The people in line were pretty representative of my area in my district. Our district is stupidly gerrymandered. It stretches from the northeast Houston area suburbs all the way into the Montrose area of Houston proper. It's totally designed to negate the votes of Montrose. At least that's my opinion.

All in all, it took about 35 minutes to get in and out. Now I'm just looking forward to November 3rd. VOTE!

I've got a dilemma.

I live in Harris county. My drivers license expired in April. I have to go in person to renew. No appointments are available anywhere near me until after election day. What do I do in this situation? Will I be allowed to vote since they require a valid ID? Any help or answers on this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
