I'll bet you $10 my Hallowe'en was more politically incorrect than yours.

If you are a small branch of a financial institution where all the customers know all the customer service people, All Hallows' Eve is a really bad frigging day to spring a new employee on customers, particularly if that new employee is someone who routinely gets up in costumey sorts of attire. That employee WILL be asked if she's a gypsy today.

Fortunately, I stopped after her terse "No." Was gonna ask if she'd tell my fortune. How was I to know? Sheesh.

Ya know, if you're some zealot who allows ball-less wonders to cow you into covering your hair, I don't understand why you're not beaten senseless for having sequins on the scarves with which you cover your whorish mane, you bloody wanton prostitute! Seems to me sequins are more slatternly than hair. But what do I know? I'm just some spare infidel who would not have survived to adulthood in your world, what with me being so mouthy and all.

New toothpick post after I get back from taking the boy for his routine shots.

Lol..... A wonderful mental picture comes to mind. :-)

With it being Halloween and all, you'd a thunk she'd expected those questions. Being a CSR she SHOULD have better people skills.

As for being a "mouthy" broad, I toast your outspokenness! Long Live Mouthy Women!

"sequins are more slatternly than hair" - I must remember this. Seems like a pretty good rule to live by!

carteach - well, I'm horrified to have said something offensive - would not have done so intentionally in a million years. Having been put in that awkward situation, I feel a little annoyed that the manager of the business wasn't more sensitive to that.

hollyb - Indeed, perhaps I wasn't the first to offend her that day. Takes one to know one, you uppity broad!

barbara - Ees true, Ceesco!
