My Perfect Conservative Moment

True story….

I needed some stamps, so I went to the post office this morning. 

As, we were waiting in line, my daughter points to the collections they have on display.    Her first exclaimation was "Mommy, look at Mickey Mouse - there’s candles here!" (there was a display that had Mickey Mouse candles and some stamps with it). 

At the next display…  "Mommy, look at that guy on the stamps!"  I told her "that guy" was Ronald Reagan.  Right behind me was a couple, and the guy said to the girl something along the lines of "I don’t know why anyone would even waste the paper to put Ronald Reagan’s picture on it.  He was one of the worst presidents we’ve ever had."

Me, being the ever-polite person - and for fear of police action - chose not to turn around and deck him.  Instead, when it was my turn to buy stamps - and in a very loud voice - I asked the clerk "Do you have any of those Ronald Reagan stamps in stock?  I’d like to buy some!" 

I could feel the redness in his face across the room!

I can imagine what I would have said and done. LOL My mouth just doesn't know when to think before speaking. Wait a minute, mouths don't think...LOL

Good for you Merri...setting an example for your daughter like that. Some people are really just rude-that man deserved to get whacked by you.

Merri, you must be a very good mother. I can't imagine what my reaction to the comment would have been but you can be guaranteed it would not have been so classy nor subtly snarky.
