So, I was out doing a bit of Christmas shopping:
Cashier – Here’s your change. Have a nice day.
Me – Thanks! Merry Christmas!
Cashier – You should say Happy Holidays. It’s less offensive.
So, I’m a Christian.
Now, I’m telling you this because it’s not something immediately discernible (especially considering the number of times I use the word “shit” in a 24-hour period). While I love me some Jesus, I’m not one to jam my faith down anyone’s unwilling throat. That makes for a rather one-sided conversation, no?
Granted, some make it easy by wearing a yarmulke, a hijab or a spiffy “Jesus is my homeboy” t-shirt, but I don’t think any of us should expect or be expected to pin down another’s religious persuasion from a 30-second interaction.
How do we manage to be both polite, inclusive and inoffensive?
Kiss my ass.
Kiss my ass.
I know this will be a strange and shocking concept for people but…
How about you worry about you and I’ll worry about me?
If I suggest you should have a Merry Christmas, feel free to wish me a Happy Kwanzaa.
Don’t celebrate anything? How about “Have a nice day!” or “You too!”?
Stop being so sensitive and accept the greeting with the spirit with which is was offered.
Believe me, this will prove a lot easier (and less likely to get you arrested) than trying to locate a person’s kaccha.
MERRY FRICKIN’ CHRISTMAS
