The Friday Photo
December 11, 2015
I couldn’t manage a photo of what I saw this week, but it bears describing.
At an office supply store I watched an elderly man getting information for some type of technology problem he couldn’t solve. The young man at the service counter very patiently repeated what needed to be done, and assured the customer that if he brought the item in, the problem could be solved. The customer left to go get the item out of of his car.
The elderly man was wearing Confederate flag suspenders and a replica Confederate battle cap. The polite young man at the counter was black.
The irony was almost more than I could stand.
