Last night, the cashier at Sam's Club greeted me with an "Have a good Presidents day." I realize I live in a political area, but this is Iowa, not Utah or any other state that doesn't matter in the electoral process. Our first language is state rights and I expect to be greeted in my states language not popular vote. If I were in a political restaurant, I could understand being greeted in the political process. I felt very disrespected. What is happening to our wonderful country?

I swear this time I won't forget to call you. Btw there will probably lots of drinking involved.

Right on. Drinking and lots of eye candy equals a good night IMO.

Amen. Hopefully the turnout is as good as last year.

Wow, that is pretty funny because My mom and I were flying home to California after staying with friends in Colorado this President's Day. We have had to get up extremely early, and I have had a stressful week after dealing with a new friend. I should also mention I am a brony, meaning I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I am wearing a T-Shirt my best friend got me that says Ponyvengers with five ponies dressed up as the Avengers. We are stopping off to get some juice before we get on the plane home.)

Me: "Hi! I'll have [fruit drink]."

Mom: "And I'll have... a small [another drink]."

Cashier: "You got it. Your total is [total]."

(After my mom pays, the cashier walks backwards as he goes to make our drinks. My mom isn't looking up. He motions to his chest and mouths `I love your shirt'. I give him a huge grin and thumbs up.)

Mom: *to me* "Oh! I forgot to get water! Can you go get me some?

Me: "Sure."

(She hands me some money. I grab two water bottles and put them on the counter, in front of the same cashier.)

Cashier: *smiling widely* "It's on the house."

Me: "Oh, wow! Thank you!"

(As my mom and I are walking away with our drinks.)

Mom: "He didn't let you pay for the drinks?"

Me: "Nope!"

Mom: "Why?"

Me: "Because he's a fellow brony. It's an automatic bond between us, even though we'll probably never see each other again. Bronies care about each other, and since we had already paid for our drinks, he didn't want to make us pay for anything else."

Mom: *confused* "Oh... seems odd to me."

Me: "That's because you're not part of the herd."

Peter Faden says:
Yes, only replace the old man and oatmeal with lots of beautiful women and micro brews with a full menu and seating for like 500 people, plus the bar of course and whatever games are playing on multiple televisions. Then, you are spot on.

ed: actually, they do have oatmeal stout, so put the oatmeal back in the description.
