Politics dispute in the neighborhood

Living in the Olympia area, and a Republican may not always go over well. The neighborhood that I live in is peaceful, quiet and everyone seems to get along well. We housesit, babysit and support each other in tough times. We even get together for mini block parties. Some College students were celebrating a 21rts b-day celebration, and decided it would be a funny prank to switch the neighbors Obama sign for our John McCain one. With no ill wil intended, and every intention to switch them back (two of them Obama supporters). Even the more conservitive would think this was harmless and humorous, but the neighbor that possessed the Obama sign was outraged, and it started a nasty little war. She took our McCain sign and said she was throwing it away, without even attempting to resolve the issue with us. Needless to say "It was on!" So we made our own sign out of plywood, paint and Christmas Lights-So enjoy....It was fun!

Not tipping a waiter because you disagree with their political beliefs, even though they gave excellent service is completely ridiculous.

Once in the restaurant I noticed that my waiter had on a "Obama 08" tee shirt. When the bill came, I decided not to tip the waiter and explained to him that while he had given me exceptional service, his tee shirt made me feel he obviously believ
