This graceless man is taking a stand
With more and more professional athletes exercising their right to take a knee during the National Anthem, it’s nice to meet an every day man who is doing the same thing without any of the spotlight.
Meet Dom Benning, a 36 year old Investment Banker from New York City. Dom is one of the clumsiest people you’ll ever meet in your life. Whether it’s his keys, his coffee, or his daughter, chances are he’s dropping them on the ground by accident. Although being clumsy is generally a tragic way to go through life, Dom has managed to turn it into an act of true patriotism. As of yesterday, Dom has pledged to take a knee every time he drops something on the ground.
“It’s the least I can do,” said Dom, “This is my way of getting involved. Also, I drop so much shit all the time that it’s starting to hurt my back with the way I normally bend over, so this is just a healthy decision for me in terms of maintaining my spine.”
Wow. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Good for you, Dom.
