  •  Yep, I had similar (4+ / 0-)

    horrible experiences during the elections both times. My ex-boss is a tea partier and ever since the ACA passed she's been on my ass constantly. It was bad enough listening to addle brained customers with their bigotry and hate but I've sat through her telling stories of a patron once finding a homeless dude asleep in the dumpster and proclaiming: "Look! Somebody threw away a perfectly good "nword)!" She just thought that was the funniest shit ever. So yeah, how long can one tolerate this on a daily basis? I lasted 8 years because we have to do what we have to do to eat but I finally snapped. Enough is a goddamned 'nuff. The Zimmerman verdict was the proverbial straw. Her posting all kinds of crap on FB about what a thug Trayvon was prior to it. It's hard to reconcile that and be married to a black man and look him in the eyes each night when he asks how my day was and not be able to tell him just how awful it was because I don't want to hurt him. Yeah...not sad about being fired.
