View Full Version : Sad Rally Story

As I left the club last night around 2:30am I went to the airport to catch my 5:30 flight out of town. As I get on the tram from returning my rental car I see a guy in a suit with his luggage waiting to get on the tram.

I strike up conversation with him and come to find out he was a fellow Ron Paul supporter in town for the R4R.

I ask him how he liked the event and he just stared at me and shook his head. He then said he had just gotten off his plane from Japan (he lives over there) and flew into town for the rally.

My jaw probably dropped as I realized what was going on. I then had the unfortunate duty of explaining to the gentleman who had just taken a 20 hour flight from Japan that he missed all of the Ron Paul events by about 12 hours.


Needless to say he was not a happy camper and I felt sorry for him. :(

Horrible. I would feel like I just got punched in the gut...purely from telling the guy that.

why bother flying in if you're not planning on being on time and early?

That guy is an idiot.

I hope when you do something stupid like that someone tells you that you're a moron, moreover, I hope it's the same guy and you did something even more stupid.
