Socially Acceptable

, , , , , | Right | January 21, 2011

(The shop I work in has a TV that plays the news 24/7. It has picked up a story about a judge ruling that the Obama healthcare bill was unconstitutional.)

Customer: “Well, good! It is unconstitutional! You can’t force anyone to get health care if they don’t want it. This country is becoming too socialist! We don’t need any socialist programs!”

Me: *avoiding the topic* “Your total comes to [total].”

Customer: “All right, here you go.”

(The customer hands me her food stamps card.)
