Morning Fright  
SO I stop in this local convenience store this morning for caffeine, right? Now, I know I look scruffy, and tired, and I'm kinda out of it. I also happened to be wearing my Satanic Black/Hail Satan shirt (the first one I grabbed). In the store, the girl at the counter is giving me weird/concerned looks, and the older-middle aged country guy at the end of the counter looks at me and says "You don't look like yer from around here"...I shit you not! Unfortunately, I wasn't awake enough to really taker advantage of this sitch, so I kinda blew it off, but the girl weas still freaking out about me (tall, dark, scruffy, freaky satanic-looking, and wrap-around shades does this, apparently), and when she gave me the incorrrect change, I pointed it out. She quickly pointed out that she had just rounded off the penny I owed her, to give me more exact change (in my favor), so I thanked her...and flipped the horns at her as I walked out \m/

*giggle* Humans are such easy prey.

you know, i don't think i have ever gotten a negative reaction in public for anything i have worn really. course maybe everyone looks at me funny and i'm just used to it.

I actually do get them giving me strange looks all the time, but mabey thats just because when I get my trench and hat on i tend to loom. its funny since Im not exceptionally tall, but I just kinda loom. It intimidates people and I think its funny since most of them could proalby kick my ass, but when I stare people down they back away. Its gleefully fun. I usually walk away chuckling maniacally.

They are such easy pawns. Move them around on the board.

I had a similar incident a number of years ago...I was visiting my father and stopped at the Safeway in Hood River for something, wearing a Negativland shirt with "Christianity is Stupid" emblazoned across the front in big letters. The clerk was a real low forehead and my shirt didn't sit well with her at all. She didn't say anything but stared at me with her mouth hanging open throughout the entire transaction, barely saying a word. It seemed to cause her no small amount of distress but all I could do was smile. Rednecks are almost too easy man.
