You’re the Problem!

When I was at the gun show, a man asked me what the book was about, and I explained it to him.  He told me, “So, it’s about doing stuff yourself, taking care of yourself.”  I agreed, and he continued.  “That’s right, brother.  I find if you pray hard enough…”  This is where I think he’s going to say something really inspirational.  “You’ll find what you need or someone will give it to you.  There’s no need to work.  Hell, I just quit my job.  You can get by on $3,500 a year with foodstamps and no electricty.”  He just kept going on and on, and I wanted to scream “You’re the problem!  You!  You’re it!  Get the hell away from me!!!!”

True story.
