I told 'em I was a hipster, and they cracked up........"Nah, you're just an old hippy, you can't help but be who you are, hipsters have to try, plus they believe themselves to be trendsetters when all they are is more trendy than anyone else."

My kids are probably around the ages of most of you all. they range from 24 to 44, which includes their spouses.

I Love having my kids around!

This is what a hipster is

goes into record store and buys stuff they don't even know because thats what cool people do

Clueless and must be trendy at all costs

Pretty much audio. Usually anyone who hears of something becoming trendy that automatically expresses their dislike for it and begins to make a case for a similar older crappier version

I identify that person to be a hipster. It's always the same people. Snooty snobs who have an argument for anything. They crank their crappy music in their efficient cars so everyone can hear and see how advanced they are, even if they really don't like it themselves.

they consider themselves experts on whatever subject they decide to Google and can't wait to debate you on it while holding the most unpopular beer in the bar, usually Pabst blue ribbon, though that's becoming trendy so they'll move on to something else eventually.

They're the ones who work at staples or office max and if you ask them what they do they can't give you a straight answer unless it starts with "I'm a manager at.." If not a manager, they're planning to go back to school, or are tired of the corporate scene.

But Tampa has the crappiest Walmart I've ever seen.

I don't doubt that. But is there a Walmart that's NOT crappy? There was one in Largo, where it was a must that one had to shower after visiting the store, just to get the stench of desperation off your body.

I hear after they tore it down, some Republican members of Congress hung up framed bits and pieces of the store on their office walls, to show their wealthier donors what an excellent job they're doing.

There's now a SUPER Walmart across the street. Even with it being new, ya still need a shower afterwards.

My youngest told me, for male hipsters, it's also a requirement that you have a beard, the stragglier and unkept, the better.

Like an idiot I went that route a couple of years ago. After my mom died I quit trimming my beard for about a year....NOT a good idea! I look at photos now....What the **** was I thinking?laugh.png

actually jb the beard is optional if you have a mustache capable of holding wax.

I have no problem with that. My old barber Johnny, an Italian fella from Brooklyn use to call me a viking because of my beard & mustache. I use to joke about how he was down here in the witness protection program. Dude had photos of the Rat Pack all over the shop walls. Really good guy, and had a huge following...all old dudes like me, though I was probably the youngest.

Anyway...he died last year. Real bummer! The guy that took over his shop isn't nearly as good, and doesn't have a 10th of the personality that my boy Johnny did. He's from Indianapolis and as white bread as they come. There's just something I find extremely boring about midwesterners. It sucks finding a new barber!

BTW, my stache can hold a half a tin of wax if I don't trim it back for a couple of weeks.wink.png
