Two Impact party members really ticked me off today. I was sitting at a table in the sun during my free fifth period, listening to my iPod and finishing up the last of the three books Mom bought me over break. (Notice - reading a book and wearing headphones.) Yet they still came up to me and asked if they could ask me the questions from a 'spiritual survey'. A thousand retorts flashed through my mind, but the one that came out was, "Well, you can try." All they got out of their nicety-nice politically correct questions was: I'm an atheist, I don't go to church and never have, I can't remember there ever having been a time when I believed in a God, and I believe that when we croak, that's it.
I wasn't very nice to them, but I didn't really care. I had just taken a test and was trying to 'decompress'; I was obviously in 'do-not-disturb' mode, and still they came over and harassed me with questions that were none of their damn business. Way to represent your party favorably. Not like I was planning to vote in the SG elections anyway, but if I were, Impact would have just lost my vote in a big way.
(I haven't actually talked to anyone who IS going to vote, and this is because SG has failed to note that nobody on campus has the slightest idea (a) what any of the parties stand for, (b) what the differences are between them, (c) when the elections are, or (d) where we're supposed to vote. Nor, I might add, do most people care that much. We did our part by making Alachua a Kerry county, and look how that turned out.)
Okay, I'm going back to my book now.
