This is a picture of the price listings at a local smoothy shop. The owner is a hoot. He can usually be found dancing on the street corner with a huge sign that says 'Honk if you love drilling'.

I just noticed the words are small. Basically, he charges liberals considerbly more than conservtives for smoothies lol.

I wouldn't lie to save a buck. I'd just take my business elsewhere. 

Quoting Jack_Squat:

Most people are. Would you lie to save a buck?


Quoting punky3175:

And he expects people to be honest?



Quoting Jack_Squat:

You pick your price. I had to pay in between because I'm a libertarian >.>






Quoting punky3175:

And how does he know who's liberal vs conservative?







Quoting Jack_Squat:

Oh, no. He is dead serious, and that is what you pay. He has been all over the papers and on the news lol.










Quoting punky3175:

I'd keep on walking and if kids were with me passive-aggressively and loudly explain that we don't give people 'like that' money. :-)











Even if he's just trying to be funny - he's failing miserably.

I wouldn't even go there. That's probably what he wants anyway.

If the prices helped pay for benefits and stuff for his employees I'd pay the higher price, and make sure he knew its because I'm not an asshole.

can you spot a liberal or conservative just by appearance? I can't. Well, sometimes, but not typically.

reading more about it and learning that he is donating the extra money to conservative causes would be enough to definitely keep me out of the shop.

I think he is losing a good portion of his possible customers and that he probably doesn't care.

Idk? I would prolly still buy from him.....doesn't bother me one bit.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safety in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO, what a ride!!!"
