  •  So last night I call from a pollster (22+ / 0-)

    He asked if he was speaking to [my full name] and I asked who was asking. He said he's calling to ask whether I'm voting for Obama or Romney. I ask, what polling organization are you with?

    He says "I'm with the Democrats."

    Really? Since when did Democrats start polling in IDAHO for presidential race. He said, ma'am I just need to know if you're voting for Obama or Romney? Our records show you're a felon and a Democrat. Just confirming that.

    I said "You're out of your goddamn mind, I am not a felon!"

    He said, well, yes you are and it's illegal for felons to vote in Idaho.

    I said, NOT TRUE. Who the hell gave you my name and number? This is voter intimidation you fuckwit, and I will report you.

    So, at this point I'm in full-on RAGE mode, said you must be pretty fucking desperate to try to suppress Democratic votes in Idaho, and I will find out who you are.

    So, at this point, my gf is staring at me in disbelief. I don't get angry often, but when I do, oh boy. It's not pretty.

    So I check the number and notice.... Hmmm. That number is familiar.

    IT was my damn girlfriend's stepdad! He just got a new number and I didn't have it saved in my phone. GF's mom and he decided it would be funny to know what I sounded like when I was pissed, and they knew THAT would piss me off.

    They punked me!

    I never thought I would tell my mother "in law" to go fuck herself, but I did last night. She was almost peeing her pants.

    That they were proud of me while they laughed hysterically mattered little last night. But I've been laughing about it all day.

    P.S. I am not a crackpot.
