In addition to apparently being Stop Signs Optional Day, today is Annoying People Harrassing Me In The Parking Lot of the Whole Foods at Coldwater and Riverside Day (it needs a more succinct name).
On my way in, a gentleman with a clip board asked me if I’d like to support the Democratic Party taking Congress back. I said, “Not right now” and went about my shopping. On the way out I was approached by his partner, an overly chipper woman who had been standing right next to him when he spoke to me. She asked the same question. I said, “I have to get home.” She persisted, insisting that it would “only take a minute,” as I walked past her to my car. Finally I said, a wee bit bruskly perhaps, “I have a breastfeeding baby and he is more important.”
