After a customer service call gone wrong, I was very angry and couldn't seem to get a grip on it. I called Katherine and the plan was born. Most anyone who has lived in Topeka awhile knows about the angry corner: 17th & Gage. That's where (or across the street at 15th & Gage) Westboro Baptist Church holds their work week-day 15 minute protests. You've seen the signs. God hates this and God hates that. I decided that it would be cathartic and funny if I could join in with a God Hates Verizon sign. So I did (I got about 10 minutes of protest in before the cold got to me).
Before I followed through I thought a lot about it. I mean, Westboro Baptist folks and I don't agree on much. But, I am glad they have the right to express their beliefs and opinions. That's one of the best things about this country.
I was going to post the break-up letter I wrote to Verizon (but haven't yet sent), but I think I'll keep it simple (though seriously, when the contract is up July 26th- we're gone).
Oh, and Jael (far right) got my photo too. Happy Tuesday, Sara
