The Dark Side??

These election years can sure bring out the contortionists!

As I was plugging away on my computer today (I'm working on building a page for some freebies of mine!) the phone, sitting on my desk, began to ring. As if in slow motion, I saw my hand reaching for it. Too late, I had picked it up. Darn.

It was a lady on the line. She curtly prattled off about how important this coming presidential election is. When I agreed, she asked me how much money I would donate to Romney's campaign.

"Well", I explained, "I don't agree with Romney on a lot of topics. Many people would call me a Constitutionalist, though I personally prefer the term Wierdo."

Then, much to my shock and terror, she, as monotone and "bleh" as ever, replied: "Well Mr Grove, I see that you are still registered as a Republican, so apparently we haven't completely lost you to the dark side."

THE DARK SIDE!?? She was insinuating that I was a cohort of Darth Vadar because I don't agree with Romney!

The most ironic part came next: "Mr Grove, I'm sure you realize that this is not the time to think about our differences..."

Huh? After saying that I was with the bad guys, she says not to worry about our differences! Oh, the irony!

"...but rather to unite. How much would you like to donate to Romney?"

 Arg. I eventually had to hang up on her.

    1. TCR,
      I believe they thought I was my dad. They never asked for him though, and I did receive that GOP Congressional Census this spring! (which was addressed specifically to me.) See: http://anson-s.blogspot.com/2012/03/2012-congressional-district-census.html
      Thanks for the comments!

Yep, that's me. I'm a 17 year old web unicorn and own OnRamp Web Design. My skill base is quite broad, though my real focus lies in UX and UI design for the web. When it comes to designs, I'm a perfectionist, scooting 1 pixel at a time.
