My proclivity toward smartassness and relative my inability to keep my mouth shut often hit people with blunt force. And keeping my temper under control has always been a challenge. Picking my battles, especially with this bunch
running ruining things, tests me to the limit, but I get my fair share of shots in. Dumbfounded stares and frightened looks are routine. For friends of friends or friends of family, encountering my bluntness can be painful. I will be tested this weekend no doubt with my niece/Godchild getting married. An open bar could remove all filters. What are the odds somebody will say something stupid and set me off?
As far as that flare goes, seems like I've been waiting an eternity...
You would get along quite well with my brother.....LOL
My bro is fed up, can't take it anymore and it is not shy to, literally, call dems stupid. As he calls it, "spreads the love" on our fishing trips at every opportunity.....Gas station, ramp, motel...if he gets the opportunity to take a shot, he does.
Example: Last week, 4:00 am, we are waiting for a particular station (non ethanol) to open, need gas in the boat. We pulled up to a BP (10% ethanol), bought ice,(really had to use the john) pulled over to the side...waiting.....Boater pulls in, fills up his boat and approaches us for info on a ramp...Little small talk, he makes the mistake of telling us his motor has issues, bulb won't stay primed, etc, which is all the invite my bro needed. All my bro said was" It's the gas you are using". Which led to the answer " But its more than across the street". Which led to something like " not only will you have issues putting subsidized ethanol in your boat, but you are supporting the obamanation of this country, falling for the claim this is actually good gas, driving up the cost of our engines, our cars, anything with a motor because we scramble to make a product to run on this piss, while spending much more for the additive to keep your gas mixed, than buying non ethanol, at least for your boat.... YOU are buying the additive, arent you?"
Which led to some stumbling answer, which led to the bro lamenting we need to wake up, think and get rid of this crap.... I don't remember word for word, but he was on a roll.....It was another classic day on the lake.....
