So this door-to-door salesman just came by our place. And I respond to him the way I do all door-to-doors and telemarketers and whoever – sorry, we’re not interested. And then he did something that just pissed me off. As he was walking away, he says out loud, “I can’t believe you, judging me by the color of my skin.” (He was black.)
That just enraged me. Because I say I’m not interested right off the bat now I’m a racist? What a punk. I can safely say that my annoyance at salesman crosses all racial, cultural, religious and any other boundaries – I hate them all. But reject this guy and I’m a racist. I dunno, I’m still steamed about it. I hate people like that. If you believe that the world’s out to get you, it will.
