Stupid Stuff


Dis

Yesterday I met a man who, while giving me some pennies, started to make some derogatory remarks about the character on the pennies. Now, his camo overalls and other aspects of his appearance led me to assume he was one of many rednecks who live in my area, the majority of which I think are decent people. But after the remark about the pennies I knew this guy was on a whole different level.

I told him, "That's Abe Lincoln, you know."

Then he says something like, "Oh, I don't pay any attention to that stuff. It's all stupid!" And goes on to show me a tattoo with 'A' for anarchy. 

He went on to say justice was for wimps, and after that I stopped paying attention.

I'm nothing close to a history buff, but I thought knowing the political figures on American currency was basic knowledge for American citizens. 

I guess I was the stupid one for setting my expectations so high.

I hate when that kind of people feel superior for acting too rebellious, it makes them look stupid. Unlucky that you had you deal with one of them like that.

I haven't really seen much racism for myself. This just seemed ridiculous to me, and when I saw it for myself it seemed like a joke. He was so lighthearted about it is what really bothers me.

That's right. Fortunately as you see we humans aren't all as short minded as those dumb specimens.
