Seriously Boston … I’ve been here for less than 24 hours. COME ON!!
So, I just hit up Trader Joes for some beef jerky which is part of my editing pre-requisite (currently shooting and editing season 3 of VidBlogger Nation) …
I walked to the store, picked up the jerky – all while wearing my snow leopard spirithood …
Dudes, it is in the FIFTIES HERE!!!! So so so effin cold.
I walk in, and everyone in the store is staring at me.
Whatevs, I’ll own that.
But then, I get up to the register, and the lady behind the counter goes – “you lucky I don’t have red paint on me right now.”
Rather than getting angry I take this as an area of opportunity, and explain to her that Spirithoods is actually pro animal using only high quality faux fur, and they even donate to Pro Blue.
She shot me this look of – wtf, and said “that look too real.”
People started to turn around even more at this point, as this woman was seriously saying this shit with some hardcore disgust.
I say, they’re run by a bunch of hippies in downtown LA, and they’re amazing – maybe they’re just not your cup of tea.
Yeah, whatever. She said as I continued to pay.
Dudes, if for no other reason, I was at least a customer – was that really cool, man? From this point forth anytime someone is a douche to me I will tell them that, “Excuse me, your Boston is showing.”
I travel all over, and never in my life have I met such a collective of close minded individuals.
God, lady, way to be such a …
I. Hate. This. City.
T-minus 3 days til I’m home.
