when i posted my first rant i was angry- now i´m just sad.

last time i was annoyed because i bought a cell-phone charger that wasnt working, gave it back to the little shop i bought it from - and they re-packaged it and put it back on their shelf.
it´s a small grocery store - and i know i should not buy cell phone chargers in a place like that - but i trusted them because of mutual friendliness.

so because of their bad behavior i avoided the store for a while but then i decided to forgive them.
the wife of the owner is very friendly and i thought maybe she was innocent about the charger being re-packaged.
and also it is a convenient little store at the corner... sigh.

she is from Philippines and her husband is from Bangladesh. they are both much younger than me. and we are in Portugal (south europe) and i am german by birth.

so today for some reason in conversation i told her that her president sucks big time.
and she said right away that he is doing a lot of good things and is a good president.

maybe i should not have talked about that but.... it sucks that she is a [SNIP] fascist !!!


i started to blurb something about me being german and what i think about fascists and hitler ... (yeah #!)
and then her Bangladesh-husband chimed in to say that the Philippine president was awesome.
i was so baffled! i had already payed my groceries and just left shouting :

"this might be the last time i buy something in your shop!"
and they just laughed like i made a joke ! hell !!

it´s so sad - so many people are so cold and dark in their hearts.
but i can´t check on every shop-keepers heart before i do my shopping can i ?

oh well for now - despite of the darkness all around me i decided to continue to trust in everyone ... without exception- even apparently friendly people.
lol
maybe some of my good will will stick around ?? arrr
still drives me mad !!!

rant over.

i've had enough baguette duels in french bakerys to know shopkeepers are often a little unhinged.
smile politely, dont strike them with your glove and keep chit-chat about weather.
easy.

The world is beginning to look ever so insane. Down is sideways, up is salty, yes means renewed prescription, and everyone seems to be transparent. No................................................................................I'm not stoned. That in itself would go some ways to explain the completely spastic events I have experienced today. Did the world go into chaotic nonsense mode, a polar flip, perhaps a reversal in time? Someone.....?

Sorry, I don't mean to infer you. Hmmmmm it seems the world has gone mad, I guess I'm on a parallel track with your rant. By the way, I agree with you.

You don't seem interested in any opinion but your own. All that because you don't share views on a politician of a country neither of you are in?

Were you just hoping someone here would tell you that you were right?

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the way I read your opening post, I think it's fairly likely you might have been the ass this time.
