LOL... we almost had a fight at La Madelaine ...and the liberals won!

We had our Sunday Liberal Women Who Lunch meeting (all 5 of us)...had our usual good conversation.
We were interupted by the woman in the next table who instructed us "to keep it down".
Needless to say,we graciously did not.
She proceded to tell one lady she was a B-tch,and she expected the same from "her kind".
The manager approached and politely guided them to another table.They refused to move.The manager then proceded to tell them his next act would be to call 911... on them.They left. The waitstaff came out and cheered us.
It was fun.

26. My Texas country family are literally in mourning over the election.

They have to do things like help each other clean house and laugh at stupid stuff to make themselves feel better.

I wish I could ask them: exactly what are you mourning over? But I'm afraid of the answer, so I don't ask.

23. sorry to be a spelling nazi ... La Madeleine.

As in Madeleine Albright, as opposed to Madeline, the common English spelling.

Also, a famous french pastry.

7. If they were so put-upon by your conversation,

I cannot imagine why they wouldn't WANT to move to another table. Well, unless they just wanted to pick a fight.

Glad it worked out so well.

28. several years ago I was in wallyworld.

At the checkout I said something like, "God forbid they should have sackers so the checkers don't have to do two jobs. And God forbid they should be paid enough to live on."

Some woman going by me at the checkout line said "Ma'am would you keep your opinions to yourself?" and I thought, "Why?" but I did not say anything. I'm small, (5 foot 2) but this woman was small AND quite scrawny, to the point that I thought she might be using illegal drugs.. I was with my not very tall husband and a very large male friend of ours.

29. Although the opposite is NOT fun

Trying to have a nice, quiet celebration dinner out at an upscale Mexican place in a nearby solidly-red town.

The family at the next table (10 adults) were LOUDLY bitching about Obama, complaining that conservatives were "put upon", and claiming that Romney was going to win in a landslide. It got to the point where they ruined my dinner.

My SO and I LOVE to talk politics, but we tend to keep it sotto voce so that those at other tables don't have to listen to us

The exception: right after the election, the only other people at a little local Italian place were sitting on the other side of a small wall. They were LOUDLY complaining that Obama won because he promised the poor "gifts" and I said in my best stage voice "I'm glad Romney didn't promise his rich donors ANYTHING". I noticed the table quieted down for a while.

32. Yea women, yea liberals!

I have been told to keep it down by people who feel embarrassed by my loud voice, and they had a point. However, it's free speech, and to insult you and act all supperior, that's out of bounds. Good on you.
