I make no bones about showing my disgust toward repukes
So today at work, I start ringing up a herd of loud, obnoxious repukes (you can smell em a mile away.) They got stacks of kids books (no Sponge Bobs) and I handle those like any normal person would.

Then I come to their stack of Bill O'Reilly books, Hannity books and a book about George Bush and each one I hold between my first finger and thumb, like they have poo poo all over them. The look on their mugs was priceless. They couldn't say anything, because I didn't say a word, but they got the message loud and clear.

Then, I went into the kids section and placed Sponge Bob books in the kids bible section.

Was I bad?

1. Pornography should be wrapped in brown paper & stored behind the counter.

2. You did better than I would have !
Everytime we go to a bookstore, I spend most of my time putting Michael Moore's and Al Franken's books on top of the repuke books. Sometimes I switch the dust jackets as well. I'm sorry that you have to clean that up.

3. That's a great idea.
I am usually the one grabbing the O'Reilly book and saying (just loud enough for the person next to me who is looking at it) "What a piece of shit. And he wants to talk to my child about morals?" and then I walk away.

12. I have only had one man start to argue with me.
I then announced "You're reading "The Touch That Pleases Best" and The Best of Stud Muffins In (fill in year) too? Aren't those great books! (all must be said in a very loud voice).
They usually run away afterward.

4. I did that with Anne Coulter's last book at the Salt Lake Airport.
I switched the covers with Hillary's book.

I did about ten of them right out in the open and didn't get caught.

8. Excellent !
That's one of the switches I made ! I would love to see the looks on the repuke faces when they sit down for a night of reading hate filled crap, only to find some,"hippy, commie" book instead !

Let the republipukes have it! I've got my own site going and I also give them hell on coldheartedtruth. Come on over and join the party. It's fun to make repukelicans squirm when you point out their lies!

10. I wouldn't shop there again
If I went to a store, and the people at the store did that to me, I would never shop there again. Simple as that. Doesn't matter that you didn't say anything.

If you walked into a store and were buying a liberal book and the salesperson did that to you would you like it? Would you shop there again? I'm guessing that you wouldn't like it and that you would voice your opinion by not shopping at that store anymore. Plus, you would come on a message board like this and start a thread about how horrible repukes are and how bad you were treated by them.

17. does it matter?
I don't know who you are. Are you so important that you can treat customers in your store badly?

I wouldn't want to be treated that way in any store I went to. That is all I am saying.

or are you saying that your original post was not serious?

32. You don't get it do you...
... Dems have been treated this way for 20 years.

The pukes are just starting to get a taste of their own medicine. If they don't like it, they can eat shit and die.

11. Switching covers is most excellent
My boss sticks her finger down her throat in gag fashion when we encounter repuke books. I cannot hide my distain when some morAn purchases a Bush, O'Reilly or Hannity book. I'm equally dismayed when Barbara Bush books are purchased. What can she possibly have to write about besides abusing Boy George for 57 years.

We carry lots of Lehane books too. I get creeped out by people who buy those. My normal chatty mood screeches to a sudden halt when those things end up on the counter.

I like the sci-fi freaks. They're so intense and serious. We placed sci-fi books next to christian fiction...seemed appropriate.

26. Respect for paying customers....
"Then I come to their stack of Bill O'Reilly books, Hannity books and a book about George Bush and each one I hold between my first finger and thumb, like they have poo poo all over them. The look on their mugs was priceless. They couldn't say anything, because I didn't say a word, but they got the message loud and clear."


If someone did that to me, I would simply dump the books out of the sack, look the clerk in the eye and say; very cute, now show a little respect for your job and bag them without the sarcasm!

Short of immediate compliance, I would demand a refund and then ask for the manager to aquire owner contact information, so I could inform them on why I would not be spending my money in their establishment anymore. Short of that clerk walking down the road kicking a can, I would not be satisfied enough to want to shop there again.

But that's just me. ;)

Grow up folks! You don't win hearts and minds by acting like dickheads!

BS

28. Post 997 more times and we might care what you have to say
In the meantime, like I said.....anyone who takes this thread seriously is a T.I.G.H.T.A.S.S.

Dig it? Anything you read at the LOUNGE is bullshit.

Oh, and by the way...FU.

36. 20 years ago, you wouldn't have had to wait...
I would have taken care of business right there and then. Getting the manager/ownership involved is the new civilized me. Doesn't mean I can't revert if circumstances require. :)

BTW, before ya'll start referring to me as a right wing troll, I've voted a straight Democratic ticket every election since 1972. Right wing, Left wing, I just don't like assholes, regardless of their political persuasion.

Flame away... :)
