You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up

After browsing through the book and magazine section of a well-known retail store (which shall remain nameless, but if you think hard enough, you will get it) a very irate customer demanded to see the store manager.

Manager: How may I help you, ma'am?

Customer: I just want to know why you have all the bad books about Obama, but you don't have HIS award winning book?!!

Manager: Which books are you talking about?

Customer: Well, you have THIS book, which is ALL LIES (The Obama Nation, written by Jerome Corsi) and THIS one (not sure which one that was) and you only have THIS one (written by someone else, with foreword by Barack Obama) and THIS ONE (written by Obama) but you don't have Barack's prize-winning book!

Manager: Ma'am, what is the title of the book by Obama that you're talking about?

Customer: Well, I don't know the title of it, but it won a prize!

Manager: Ma'am, if you don't know the title of the book that you're wanting to read, I'm afraid I can't be of much help.

Customer: You probably won't do anything about it, anyhow, because all of your stores are all REPUBLICAN, and you make all your employees vote that way, too!

Manager: Ma'am, I beg your pardon, but I've worked for this company for many years, and nobody tells me how to vote..I vote for the candidate of my own choosing.

Customer: Oh, then you are going to vote for Barack?

Manager: I didn't say that..I said that I vote for the candidate of my choice, and my choice is McCain.

Customer: MCCAIN?!!! Why on earth would you want to vote for that guy?

Manager: Well, for one, I happen to be a Viet Nam veteran, and John McCain is a hero in my eyes.


Manager: That's not the only reason, there are many others, such as the fact that he believes in many of the same things which I believe in, and we have the same moral values, which means a lot to me. And then, of course, there are the other reasons, which we don't have time to go into.

Customer: Well, maybe I could change your mind about voting for Barack. I'm voting for him because he is what this country needs. He is for the people.

Manager: No, I don't think that's going to happen. Now, is there anything else that I can do for you?

Customer: Well, you're not going to do anything, anyway, because of the way you believe!

Manager: Alright, then, ma' have a good evening.

Customer: Mutter, mutter, mumble, mumble (as she leaves in a huff)

While my husband was relating this to me, I sat with my mouth hanging open..but I don't know why! Evidently, she and Senator Obama are on a first-name basis!
