My county seat calls itself the deer captial of Texas. Don't know if we have the most, but if we don't, we're close. For dozen or so businesses, deer season is Christmas. These businesses hire most of the lower paid workers. These workers have to take a lot off of deer hunters. The worst deer hunters are the ones new to the area. Among locals, a service worker gets the same respect as a local teacher or minister (which much higher than the banker or lawyer). We don't talk to our animals the way some deer hunters talk to people waiting on them. Today, two trucks of bow hunters drove up to the local convenience store. They parked at a slant taking up four spaces including the handicap one. They stayed about 12 feet out and made it hard for people getting gas. The convenience store has a grill. The grill lady was making burgers for one lady and another lady was waiting to order. One of the deer hunters steps in front of both ladies and with the grill lady making burgers, in a loud Jersey/Philly dialect, starts rattling off several things he wants. The grill lady is a little shocked by his behavior and stops what she is doing and asks what he wants. The deer hunter wants to contact a buddy and repeats the order prestissimo and fortissimo. The grill lady says that she needs to write it all down but ignoring her, deer hunter has already starting walking outside. Deer hunter shortly comes back in. The grill lady stops her activity to get the deer hunters order just so she can get him out of there. Twice he made her put back what she picked up and get another item slightly larger. Many people look forward to the beginning of deer season. Around here, many people look forward to the end of deer season. That's when we return to our sleepy West Texas town status. Of course, there's the wildflower season, which is starting to out pull deer season, but that's a nicer crowd.
