Nope, none of that for me.
Now if the Wifey wants to go hear Freddy Haynes Easter speech, then more power to her. I just won't be in attendance. We agree to disagree on certain "Christian" beliefs. She don't like it, because she was raised in a strong Christian household where she was taught all the "right" ways, but she knows I am who I am.
I agree that I compromise my beliefs a little around Christmas time though. I always buy her gifts, but I don't do it out of respect for some fake ass holiday, I do it out of respect for her and her beliefs. Besides if she ain't happy, then I won't and can't be happy, so a little compromise don't hurt me.
Anyways this is not what I was going to write about... See how ya'll do? Got me rambling and shit....
Woo-sah..... OK.... I'm back......
Today before I made it into work I had to stop and get gas for the whip.
As I pumping my normal $25 into the tank, I saw out of the corner of my eye a crack head looking dude and this crack head hoish looking woman giving me the side eye. They were looking like they wanted to approach me, but they did not know how to do it. Well I made sure that I was in a position to protect myself if they chose to get stupid, ya'll know that these are crazy times we are in and besides these were two white people in a predominately Black neighborhood, so I had to check my surroundings in case something jumped off.
Anyways they finally calmed down a little to come up to me. Here is how the convo went down....
'Excuse me sir.'
'Yeah. What's up man?'
'I was, well we was wondering if you have a couple dollars you can spare?'
'For what man?'
'Well we are from San Antonio and we ran out of gas a couple of miles back and we need a couple of dollars so we can get home.'
'You are from San Antonio? What are you doing way up here?' (San Antonio is about 4 hours from Dallas.)
'Well sir, that ain't important. What we want to know is can you help us get back'.
This is when the conversation got ugly. Not important? This fool expected me to give him some money and he told me it was not important on why I was giving it to him?
'It ain't important huh? Well you say you need money for gas right?'
'Yeah'. No "sir" this time.
'Well how you gonna get it back to your car? You ain't got no gas can with you. And a couple of dollars ain't gonna buy you gas and a can to put it in. Tell me the truth Homie. What do you really need a "couple of dollars" for? Tell me the truth and I will see what I can do. But if you stay on this bullshit here, you and your woman can get the hell on from me.'
'Man you ain't got to talk to me like that. It is Easter.'
'What the hell does Easter have to do with you lying to me about needing help dude? Man get the fuck on from me. I told you to come straight and I would see what I can do for your cracked out looking ass, but you are continually trying to run game. Get the hell on dude before this gets uglier than what it is.'
'Man you ain't right turning people away on Easter. The Lord will make sure you will get yours.'
'Yeah? He already has dude. See this gas I am pumping in my car? I am paying for it with money I received from my job that I am going to be late to fucking with you. So get the hell on!'
The dude and his girl walked away mumbling some crackhead shit and I finished pumping my go-go juice and got on the road.
So you see why I got a problem with "Christian" celebrations?
