Guest Post... "My Boss Is An A**ho/e "
My boss is an asshole....
But that's alright, because he is good at it and enjoys being one. Fortunately, he's our kind of asshole. Let me explain....
Early Wednesday morning, my boss was on his way to Massachusetts. We do business with a company down there, and we had a project that needed independent test parameters for one of our processes. While on the way, he lost reception of the station he was listening to. Due to the CD player being inoperable, he started hitting the scan button looking for something to pique his interest. Then it stopped on a talk-radio show. Being a regular listener of such programs, he paused to find out what was being discussed. He soon realized he had stumbled onto a liberal echo-chamber, bemoaning the election of Donald Trump. Being a gluten for punishment, he decided to listen to the poor triggered souls - kind of a, "know thy enemy" information grab. I won't get into the whole of every conversation, but just say every left wing talking point was covered from top to bottom.
He was just about to change the station when this one caller started on a rant. The only reason that Trump won was because we just hated Obama because he was black, and Hillery because she was a woman, and that we were nothing but xenophobic, gay hating, blah, blah, blah......
It was at that point my boss snapped, and picked up his phone. Naturally due to the nature of the program, they had a screener forwarding the calls to the host. Just be glad he isn't a SVG spy, because he slipped right on in after answering a slew of questions. After a short time on hold, they put him on the air.
"Hi, I'd like to address the statements of the last caller...."
Then he pissed into their punch bowl.
"As a Trump supporter, I take issue with the assertion that we are nothing more than misogynistic, racists....".
He stated his ability to name at least five different individuals; one a woman, all of whom were black, that he would have voted for. He then went on to explain that it was the disastrous fiscal and foreign policies and general lawlessness of Obama's and Clinton's that we were opposed to. Race or gender had nothing to do with it.
"I'll tell you another thing. Having grown up on a farm; I know that a cow with a calf will accept an orphaned calf if she has the resources and ability to do so. She won't however, let her own offspring die if she can't support both of them. In this country, we are being forced to support others, when we're not even taking care of our own"....... - CLICK -
They hung up on him just as he was getting on a roll. He just shut the radio off after they dumped him, and had a big laugh at their expense. We imagine that the screener got the ass chewing of a lifetime, if not an outright pink-slip. Not to mention all the triggered cupcakes, quaking in absolute terror of a dissenting opinion taking a wrecking ball through their group-think, safe-space.
We got a good chuckle out of the experience, and I thought that I'd pass it along for you all to enjoy as well.
This is a win for our side, but we must remain vigilant.
Thank you, to all of those that made it possible.
