Don't even get me started about Amish people. I hate those bastards.

Their beliefs dictate that they can't own anything electrical or even mechanical, yet they don't have any qualms about asking YOU to use YOUR phone, or asking YOU for a ride in YOUR car, or to haul something for them on YOUR truck.

Argh!

Whoa, back up there fella... I'm partly Amish.

Amish people not only know MP3 players, they have them. Laptops, email and websites. Hell yes.

My particular parish has some of the friendliest people around. Somerset and Garett PA reprezent.
