I have a group of friends that I have dinner with once a month, and although we’re all liberal, I thought it was frustrating when my friend said “Hillary was a GOOD candidate!”

The rest agreed. I didn’t want to get into a debate with them, so I kept my mouth shut. I don’t even think they know that I dislike Hillary.

not this time. I came out of the supermarket and directly across the street a man was busy beating a beagle sized dog with what looked like a gnarly stick. It was such a disgusting surprise that I forgot what I was doing and the wheels locked on the cart as I crossed the yellow line before the curb. As I stepped into the street, a beautiful vintage 69–71 Camaro screeched to a halt between me and the dog beater. Two Hispanic men in wife beater t shirts erupted from the car. The passenger who was closest snatced the stick from the startled man’s hand and went at the former dog beater with violent force while the driver scooped up the dog and gently placed him on the backseat of the car. The passenger wailed on the man now (I assume) on the ground and out of my view. Once the dog was in place, the passenger hurled the stick halfway down the block and both men hopped into the Camaro and sped away. Life in the city!

@stanleybmanly Excuse my ignorance but what exactly are “wife beater t-shirts”?

We used to call them “guinea tees” which is just as disrespectful or more so.

@Adagio . There is a TV show called “Cops.” Men who were involved in domestic disputes so often dawned this specific garment, that it eventually got the nefarious nickname. I have several of these shirts. They are a tight, kinda tank top. I don’t even know what the shirts initial name is.

It used to be called an undershirt back in my day when it wasn’t being disrespected,

yesterday when someone said “I hate Shawn Mendes. His voice sucks” I got so angry, I wanted to scream, “WELL, YOU’RE VOICE SUCKS BI*CH!” I didn’t say it though. That would be bad….... Very, very bad.

@MrGrimm888 – When you wear them do you observe any change in the way people look at you?

I think the “wife beater” designation was from the days of Marlon Brando & “Streetcar”. It was common slang when I was a kid. “ double you bee”. Ribbed white tank top.

@imrainmaker . I’m 6’5, 300 lbs, with lots of tattoos, and a big red beard. If I wear a wife beater, I seem to draw attention, but it could just be my general appearance…

Saying goodbye to a co-worker who was leaving and who I had become good friends with. I wanted to tell him how much he meant to me but couldn’t get the words out.
