I was at work the other day (it's a bar and restaurant), and a customer et the bar was asking me how old I am and if I go to school. So I answered and he asked me what I go to school for so I answered him "environmental science". He replies, "Oh god you're one of the 'Al Gore People' aren't you?" Now in any other situation I would have explained to the man why I was offended by that but being as I was at work I just said, "Sure if you want to put it like that." He starts telling me why I and people like myself are going to cost America all of our money and why we're all going to make America starve to death. I asked him why he thought that and he began telling me how his cousin is a small farmer and he is going to be charged $175 for every cow he owns in taxes because of the methane produced by the cows feces. Farmers (according to him) can't afford that and so they loose money and then they have to give up farming and everyone else gets no meat. Again I was at work and so I couldn't tell him how outrageously he was wrong. I simply said that does seem like a large amount but I'm sure there is some tax loop he will be able to find. Now I walked away because I couldn't listen to him anymore. But later on I walk back up to the bar hoping that he wouldn't talk to me and I overheard him telling another customer whom I know well that he wasn't worried about Obama being president because no black man can hold a job for four years. OMG what the hell. Thank god the customer he was saying this to had the ability to tell him off (and she did for quite a long time I might add) but I had to bite my tongue so hard to keep from yelling at him. Can you believe that there are still people so closed minded and so obnoxiously idiotic that they believe these things? I was taken aback and my faith in human decency dwindled slightly. I just had to complain about this.
