Angry screams from a female redneck
I'm not sure what to title the essay after being accosted by the angry plump female redneck with the yellow baseball cap. I was innocently writing at the end of the bar at Belle Isle Brewery tasting all home brew you wanted from 9 to 10pm when Bubbette sat down next next to me and started yelling at me about my website.
She asked the question that rednecks love to ask.
" have a question about your website.
If you don't like it here so much, why don't you just leave?"
Calmly responding to her intrusive yelling,
"Is Oklahoma part of a democracy?"
"Do we not have a right to complain? Do we not have the right to freedom of the press?"
"You have the right to read or not read my essay, but it is infringing on someone's rights when you embarass and cuss at someone especially when they are not even associating with you."
"You were belittling the bartender."
"Sometimes, my teacher mode comes in and I want to educate the people that I talk to.
When I was paying my tab, I remarked to him how we had a pleasant evening with no conroversial conversation of politics. It was a bar "utopia" and I asked if he knew what a "utopia" was. He did not and I wanted to write the word down for him as I'm used to playing very competitive scrabble with my gf. He felt slighted at that and I apologized to him saying that it was not meant to belittle him. Everything seemed to be cool and then your boyfriend (I thought he was your husband) screamed at me angry epithets and then you chimed in, 'Why don't uuu just fuckin' leave! Of course I was leaving anyway, but the bartender then said that I was kicked out of the place. I put out my hand and he reluctantly shook it. I am sorry that he is so sensitive and maybe should not be in the service industry if he is so sensitive. I have had alot worse said to me when I was serving people. I would be happy if my only complaint was somebody telling me how to spell a word." (of course I did not say all this to her but isn't this just fiction?)
"When you wrote about me why did you call me a redneck?"
"My definition of a redneck is someone that is loud, crude, angry, defensive, closeminded and chosen to have voluntary ignorance. Mam, the fact that you don't know who Karl Rove is, the fact that you are loud, the fact that you thoughtlessly embarrassed me with your rude behavior twice when I barely know you fits 100 percent of the criteria for being a female redneck."
"You are probably going to write about this tomorrow. Aren't you?"
"Yes, I probably will."
I wanted to tell her not to flatter herself that I wouldn't waste ink on this ugly interuption, but the fact that the club thas banned me, has given this site more notoriety than I ever expected thanks to the initial slander from Martin when he interupted a very pleasant conversation I was having to see what website I was giving for another person to read. He then did as good a job as Karl Rove to tell everyone at Hudstones about my site and spread half-truths like our president does so with eloquent mediocrity. Martin should get on board with the Repuklican dirty trick campaign for the next elections.
At that point, it was so difficult to speak above her, that I found myself getting loud and angry so I proceeded to ignore this angry intrusion that sat down next to me and drank the tasty stout of Belle Isle (although it gave me a wicked hangover all this morning until I finally became hydrated). Finally she left and some very open minded friends of her came over and we had a very good enlightening discussion with a thoughtful interplay of ideas without anyone getting defensive or angry. She would still come over and enjoy interupting our conversations as she did at the other bar of ill repute.
The young gentleman voted for Bush but was very willing to learn about all the fact that are out there. I told him that there are many sources of information especially on the internet(s) that the press which is becoming more and more fascist (Fox News or Daily Disappointment) fails to tell us. As with every bit of information, even if it's Michael Moore, take it with a grain of salt and understand the motivation behind the source (i.e. Rupert Murdoch who owns Fox and the Gaylord family which own the Daily Oklahoman). It is so wonderful when I'm talking to someone who voted for Bush that is not a closeminded redneck willing to listen to the other side before the information has the Karl Rovian squelch. Nixon would have finished his second term if he had Karl to fight off and intimidate reporters so well! I'm sure there would have been no Watergate! I can't wait to give Bush's Brain to Muffy. She reads alot faster than me and can give me the condensed version of it!
Wow...I'm sure Ill get all sort of nasty comments from this fictional essay!
