Some buy at Shell, some at Exxon and some at that place with the greasy food that sells gas and is in every shopping center down south...what's it called? You order your onion rings while you pump your gas. Don't wash your hands in between and the onions get a nice "tang" to them.

And in case you think I pulled this from a hat:

Luckily, there was a Starbucks next to it - so I got a yogurt with fruit. The food in the gas station place would have saved money on diesel. You could just buy the big bucket of anything and shove it in the gas tank and go.

All gas stations are like that, not just the South. Who doesn't want an AM/PM hamburger?

Like you said, everybody is an individual and should be treated as such. Just leave it at that. I don't look down on people who are different from me. Everybody can be a teacher.
It ain't the guns that worry me - it's the throat cancer. I know too many people who got that from the habit.

Listen - the thread is a joke so hopefully my Philly sarcasm can be recognized.

I went to military school and lived in the south for years - had our first child there. I'll admit we went through out hippie days around that time. When I moved back up to near Philly (NJ) I befriended a neighbor - whose line of work was being a butcher (I'm a vegetarian) and who was a rare individual in terms of "being a good man". You see, way back then in the 70's there was no such thing as a "conservative" (Goldwater had a tiny movement but it died out - the word simply wasn't used)........

He was out of work so I hired him and we became a two man construction crew. One of the best I've ever worked with - but we were an odd couple. Me, the muscular 26 year old with hair down to my shoulders and this dude who resembled Kojak but shorter and stouter. But we "got er done" on a LOT of jobs.

So...sorry if you think I meant the joke about gas stations. It was actually told to me by my sister who has only that one option. But realistically, they drive 20-45 minutes and can be somewhere to get good stuff.

Whole Foods has a lot of jokes, sarcasm and cynicism around it. "Whole Paycheck" is often what it is called. I saw a $1 snack bag of popcorn in there and using touch, figured there was maybe 16 kernels of popcorn in the bag.

We go to the Amish Market, the Farmers Market and Trader Joes mostly.....but I have to admit we get a few things (maybe a salad bar for a quick lunch or dinner) at Whole Paycheck.

Interestingly enough, the founder of Whole Paycheck would be labeled a conservative. He said "no way" when asked about giving health care coverage to his employees. He also liked Fake News - he was caught spending years under an alias all over the internet spreading stories about how great Whole Foods was. This was when he was already worth 100's of millions.

He also bragged that most of the stuff they sell is not only not healthy, but expressly bad for you. Takes some gonads, for sure.......

I am so happy they have now opened WaWa down in FL (and on the way down also).

I'm pretty sure she stole my Obama stickers off my adult tricycle, too. But I stole the Jesus fish off her car, so we're even.
Same thing happened the other day to me, except it was a loony old fart wearing a Bernie sticker. He said, "Hey man, you didn't earn these chips, somebody else did. I am entitled to these F***ing specialty chips. It's called single payer Bro... you pay, I eat, understand?" I smiled and said, "It's alright Sir, but those aren't special chips, they're little doggie treats."

Who labels them as gun loving rednecks? I have been around many military personnel and the times were labeled as such are very very low. Especially since military personnel comes in all colours, sexes and creeds.

On the other hand, one of my homes is in Trumpland, namely Sarasota, Florida - and we have a Whole Foods there. It is a good people watching place.....everything from multi-millionaire trophy wives in yoga pants to homeless trying to look more upscale and buying an iced tea so they can use the restroom for their dressing area.

If you were in the right mood, you could just people watch for an hour and see how many "types" you can pick out.

The guy you see with the "regular guy look"? That's me.
I think I saw you at the one on Clark Rd. No, my bad, it was 1st Street. I recognize the voice too.
