Mitt Romney visited a cafe in western Iowa last week, and the cafe’s owner was not impressed.
Dianne Bauer, owner of the Main Street Cafe in Council Bluffs, told a local TV station that Romney’s staff trashed the place, that Romney didn’t greet or thank her, and that when he called her afterward to smooth things over, she felt she was being mocked.
“He responded ‘well, I’m sorry your table cloths got ripped off, wadded up and thrown in the back room’ and I took it as mocking,” she said. “We’re the ones he’s wanting to get the votes from, you’d think we would have been treated better.”
She says the whole experience left her wondering.
“With how he treated me, is that how he’s going to treat others? You know, if he gets in office is he going to be that way to us little people?” The Atlantic, “Iowa Cafe Owner on Romney’s Visit and Apology: ‘I Took It As Mocking’” (via inothernews)
I bet that skinny people, even when they have a horrible day and are depressed and lonely and angry, still get to sleep because they can say, “at least I’m thin.”
I wonder what that’s like.
today i stuck to the diet 100 percent and didn’t even cheat a little. i’m sort of pleased with myself. but i’m still fat. i’m feeling optimistic, though, that this is going to work.
in other news, i am for real vegan. there, it’s on the internet so now i have to really really be good. and i will.
in other other news, i called roody for the first time since i’ve been back in the US and it was a really nice conversation and i realized i actually miss him a lot. then when i hung up the phone i cried a little because i miss india so much. it makes me really sad.
but i’m making money. so life is OK right now.
Why did you tag me in that photo? Why did you even put it on Facebook? As if I don’t hate myself enough.
