Mama Knows Best - Aug 2015

Dear Mama,
How do you deal with automated phone systems? Hung Up

I do not deal with them well. They make you press a button for a language. Why in the hell do I need to do that? I live in America it is English. Then they make you press a button for what department you need. After that another button must be pressed to prove who you are. Good Lord, I am calling from my number I know they have caller ID! Then they put you on hold for the next available representative. If they would just skip the automated system we wouldn’t have to hold. Who created this system? I would like to kick the idiot that did!

Are you offended by the confederate flag or any other one? not signed

I realize certain things offend some people. I just wonder where we will draw the line. Every time someone gets offended we have to change something to suit that person or group. Newsflash! People, if it offends you do not look, watch, listen, do or be around it. This is not rocket science. Good Lord, they wonder why I drink beer.

What do you think about all these clerks quitting or refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of religious freedoms? On The Line

Wake up, America. Change is going to happen whether you believe in it or not. There is not a darn thing we can do about it. I understand if you have different beliefs than someone else, but do your damn job. I cannot say I am not going to work on Mondays because I do not believe in it because of my religious freedoms. That would never fly. What if all the gay people in the world stopped doing their jobs; what would happen then? I will tell you what would happen, lousy service at restaurants, our hair would be a mess, and our homes would look like crap. That’s correct. No hairstylists, wait persons, or decorators, not to mention all the other professions. You guessed it! Gay people are everywhere!

     If I ever run for an office my slogan will be vote for me and mind your own business!  We all just need to get along and mind our own damn business!! Thank you, Kansas. Enjoy the rest of your summer! l
