Retail politics comes to Chez Angus
Last night around 5:00 our doorbell rings. I go to answer and low and behold it's Wallace Collins at the door wearing a Wallace Collins shirt and carrying Wallace Collins campaign materials.
WC: "Hello, I'm Wallace Collins" (sticking out his hand for a shaking).
Me: (shaking said hand vigorously) "Yes sir, you sure are".
WC: (getting together a package of stuff from me) "I am running for re-....."
Me (interupting) "I should tell you sir that I am not a registered voter"
WC: "Would you like to become one right now?"
Me: "No sir, it's not by accident or laziness or anything, I just don't vote."
Me: "Look at it this way, I definitely won't be voting against you".
WC: (very pleased with this spin) Well, OK then, have a good day.
Me: "Good luck with your campaign sir".
