I once worked with a guy named Stupid Steve in an architecture office - he did drafting. Yes, I called him that to his face "Stupid Steve" and he didn't seem to mind. He was not stupid IQ wise just in life's lessons.
His most famous quote was: "Hitler ain't a bad guy." Why did he kill all the Jews, he said "To prevent them from starving." Steve was of German ancestry, no surprise there. He had many other stupid beliefs about the Nazis. No matter how I tried I couldn't change his mind...sort of like some of you readers. I learned from Steve some things are futile. It would be like trying to convince Anthony Verdugo to accept a gay person's rights.
Anyway, Steve was always amusing. I asked him once to name one Supreme Court judge and he said: "What is the Supreme Court?" I said "Do you vote Steve"? When he said no, I said "that is very smart of you." He was very proud.
After about two years he comes in and tells me he is going on a ski trip with some of his friends. He said "there will be 3 ladies there named Millie, Tilly and Toots." He laughed and said their names a few times, laughing each time.
What he didn't know, they were my aunts. Aunt Toots was my favorite aunt. They are all dead now. Fortunately, I lost touch with Stupid Steve. I hope he isn't bringing up children.
