Most mornings I go to Starbucks for my coffee, but last week on my way to work I saw a sign out in front of the 7-Eleven that I pass each morning. It said that on Friday (last week) from 6am - 10am they were giving each customer a free large coffee. SOLD! I love free shit. ;)
So, Friday morning instead of going out of my way to Starbucks like I do each morning, I stopped at the 7-Eleven near work for my morning cup o' joe.
It was crazy busy, as expected, so I took my spot in line near the coffee center.
I finally had inched myself close enough to the cups and grabbed one, waiting for the person in front of me to finish pouring his cup.
I grabbed the pot, poured my coffee, and started doctoring it up. I like a little coffee with my cream and sugar. ;)
All of a sudden, the man standing across from me says, "Oh, so you're for Romney, huh?"
I said, "Umm, excuse me?" thinking this was a very random question from a perfect stranger.
He then nods and points towards my cup, and I see this:
I looked at my cup for a second, and said, "Umm, I just wanted some coffee."
The girl standing next to him said, "Well, I had a Romney cup & dumped that out to get an Obama cup."
To which I replied, "I didn't even notice the coffee cups had the candidates on them, I'm in a hurry to get to work just like the rest of you, and I just wanted some coffee!"
I found it kind of funny, but at the same time I can't help but think why we have to turn everything into some political. Can't even get a cup of coffee these days without being judged based on policital preferences. A bit ridiculous, in my honest opinion.
As you all know, I never get into politics here on my blog, and I want to keep it that way. I just thought this would be some good blog material. Nice and entertaining. :)
Have a great day!
