The thing I hate the most is hypocrisy. It's the reason I left the Catholic Church.
Hypocrites are beneath contempt as far as I'm concerned.
So guess what?
Yesterday afternoon, I was awakened by a phone call from my boss. He had an interesting story to tell me and wanted to hear my side.
Apparently, the dimwit I was working with this past weekend didn't like me drinking beer in our hotel room, and decided to do something about it.
I'm here to tell you yes, I do like my beer but I don't drink nowhere near as much as I did a few years ago. I used to drink quite heavily. So heavy in fact I half expected my liver to just up and explode one day. I'd go on benders that would last days and I'd wake up and have to put my liver back into my torso it was so bad.
But, even then the one thing I'd never, EVER do is drink on the job.
And I mean NEVER.
So what's this prick tell my boss?
I allegedly bought a case of beer on the way from the job Saturday, and downed half of it before we even got back to the hotel, tossing the empty bottles out the window along I-64. I was also speeding and driving erratically, cutting several people off along the trip also. When I got back to the hotel I'm also allegedly supposed to have rudely propositioned the night desk clerk in front of several witnesses, trashed the room and passed out in my own vomit in the bathroom.
This is quite surprising to me since the six-pack (not a case) I bought on Friday night, I still have two cans left sitting in my fridge.
And another thing, I'd never drink in a company vehicle either.
The one good thing about this is my boss, although a moron in his own right, didn't believe a word of it anyway. He's known me long enough to know I'd never do that, and he's never had any reason to suspect me of this.
The thing I want to know is, what makes a person, a so called "God-Fearing" Christian make up such a bald-faced lie just to destroy another's reputation, especially when that person didn't do a damn thing to him?
I didn't even rat him out for the bear feeding episode and I could have.
So let me say this. This man of God, this "God Fearing Christian" had better become a "Tom Fearing" man right quick, because if I ever see this fucking troglodyte again, I'm going to bitch slap him so hard he's going to wake up in another time zone.
Oh, I know what you're saying. "Tommy, you should just turn the other cheek..."
Well, my friends, I've done that far too many times in the past only to have that one slapped too.
"vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord..." Well, God's busy. I'm just gonna help him out with some light work.
Some Christian. He's a fucking hypocrite.
Right now I'm just going to quietly seethe...
