I am so mad I could spit. Apparently, the owner’s wife came into work today and asked my daughter who she voted for. She told her Obama and this is the text message my daughter sent me today:
“The owner’s wife asked me who i voted 4. Told her and she was furious and called me a socialist idiot and stormed off.”
I was so angry I could have spit. I went to our human resource manager and she said there is no law against calling employees an idiot. And as long as she doesn’t fire her or treat her differently because of who she voted for, Heather has no recourse.
Well doesn’t that just suck!? How dare she attack my child for doing something good like voting! What right does an employer have to chastise an employee for ex
cersing their right to vote? The Daddy in me kicked in big time and I wanted to go to her work and scream at that lady or break her arm or flush her head in a toilet. I didn’t but boy did I want to. Fortunately, Heather kept quiet and just went about her work. But she texted me about 12 times during the day so I know she was upset. Her last text said that the woman was sure going to feel like an a$$hole when Obama wins tonight!
She works at Merryfield’s Bar & Restaurant right here in Oaklyn, NJ. They have great bar foo
d at reasonable prices. Even their drinks are reasonably priced and the local yocals crowd the place most nights. BUT, I may just go down there later, order a dozen wings (their wings are THE BEST in the county), and jump up and down screaming for Obama just to see it that woman will say antyhing to ME
. Or maybe not, cause it is Heather’s work and I have to respect her work space. But it’s a good fantasy. And Heather is SO RIGHT
. She sure is going to feel like an a$$hole when her candidate loses. I love my daughter and I am so lucky she is a strong and independent woman. She does me proud. And I’m glad she stood strong behind her vote for Barack Obama as President.
