OP said Confederation, as in the Articles of Confederation, not Confederates. Normally I'd say something like "go retake US History" or another arrogant line like that, but its a common mistake, even I had to think a second. If you think about it, a recreation of 1780 America is more likely than a 1860 America, and more likely to look like an Amish Village.
-Recreation as defined: The action or process of creating something again -Confederation era was a time period in the late 18th century (like the 1780's) when the US Government was led by The Articles of Confederation. -A visitor believed that the historical reenactment wasn't an act. He/she believed that it was actually an Amish town. -Amish are Anabaptist (Protestants/Radical Reformation of 16th century). They live a simple life abstaining from the use of modern conveniences like electricity, automobiles, etc. There are 1-2 million of them spread out mostly in North Eastern US (Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, etc.) and Ontario of Canada. -The person didn't understand that this was their day job, but instead actually believed that this is their actual day-to-day life. They believe that they actually wear the plain old fashioned garb and have barn raises. The FML here is that the OP has a shitty job and has to often deal with morons.
this FML reminds me of that old south park episode where the class takes a fieldtrip to an old-time themed village and cartman and butters escape to an arcade called super fun time. does anyone remember it?
