LAZY Boy Furniture

Today 7 Compatriots of Georgia descended upon the Politically correct business known as LAZY Boy Furniture in Douglasville Georgia. They have been flying the BLUE rag for sometime, and have previously received one of our letters informing them that if they DID NOT choose to take down the Blue Rag on their own, the picketing would soon commence. So far, 6 business have previously decided to take down the rag in response to our letters, but LAZY Boy furniture has decided to test our will. 

Being the kind Southern Gentleman that we are, we decide to go inside and give them one last chance. So, Tim Pilgrim and I went inside, and Tim asked to speak to the manager. A lady introduced herself as Mrs. Russell, and Tim told her about the previously sent letter. She admitted that they HAD received the letter, and that she would go and telephone the owner. Tim told her we would hold off the picketing until she had talked to the owner. A few minutes later she came back with a story that he was STILL in church. It was 1:30PM, and she could not reach him but got his assistant, and he directed her to instruct us to leave or call the police. Mrs. Russell informed us that they "Had the right to fly any flag they wanted to". We certainly agreed with that, and told her we wasn't asking them to put OUR flag up, BUT to just take down the Blue rag, and as true as it was, that they had the right to fly the blue rag, WE had the same right to picket them. So with the USUAL threat of calling the police, thats suppose to scare us off I guess, which we always shrug off, the picketing begin. 

Every half hour I keep asking Tim, I wonder when the police would show? About and hour later the Douglasville police drove by, barely slowed down and waved at us. 

So we picketed for almost 3 hours in front of their store, (see picture below), having some hilarious interaction with potential customers. A few people who turned into the store, and after seeing the picket, turned back around and left. We talked to a lot of them. 

So upon closing, we let Lazy Boy know, they have until 5:30PM Tuesday, to take down that rag, or we will be back! 

Between the neat chants below, we also had signs, 

That Blue Rag has got to go........

All in all, the 7 of us had a hilarious funny time. The mall security drove by 3 or 4 times, the Douglasville police drove by only once, and of course the reaction from the public was GREAT as usual. We even had one man and his wife stop by and drop us off a 12 pack of cold Coca Colas, park in Lazy Boys lot, and walk over and bring them to us, and told us he was proud of what we were doing! 

Lazy Boy furniture is in a stand alone building next to Arbor Place Mall, which is the 3rd largest mall in
Georgia.
