    So she called me as she left Krogers and told this to me, then posted it on face book because its awesome.

    Mind you she's Irish decent and has once described herself as a Methodist with Buddhist tendencies.





    "So I was getting ready to leave Kroger, taking my bags out of the cart while I was still in the store. A lady walks up and I offer her my cart. She said thank you. I smiled and said, "No problem. Happy Holidays!" She immediately got a stink face with me and tersely said, "It's Merry Christmas." Now, I don't have a problem wit
    h people correcting me by saying "Merry Christmas" in response to my Happy Holidays, but I've got a lot of friends who celebrate different faiths and thus different holidays and I'm not going to assume anyone celebrates anything. However, the stink eye she gave me aggravated me and so my response was to quietly say with a smile, "Well, I respect you. And I say Happy Holidays because I celebrate Kwanzaa." Then I walked away."

    she has an amazingly quick wit. She has floored me many times with her ability to sweetly reduce a butthead to a shivering pile in the corner or coax surprised laughter out of a dour person.

    Sadly, I have a tendency to feed the trolls. I am getting better as I age. Perhaps if I live to be 100 I might reach her level - German dour and Scottish reactive - no chance. [​IMG]

    You seem pretty good at containing your old onriness (spelling?)
