I was working at a restaurant years ago. A woman came in and made like we were
old friends. She started chatting me up. At some point she made a statement that made me think she was racist. Thing is I have conduction aphasia and cannot hear and think at the same time. She kept talking. Since she was a customer I kept listening. I know I should have gotten curt right then and there. But I'm a sucker. I have a hard time not being pleasant to people. What should I have said or done? What would you do? She came back and I was pleasant to her one more time I think. I have a problem being a polyanna I know. But how would you have handled it?
to everyone - saying, "thank you", and "you're welcome", holding doors open, etc. I try to be polite, but sometimes people are just such inexcusable assholes that I can't bite my tongue. I'll make a shitty comment in response to their offensiveness, and then walk away.
People who park in handicapped spots are the worst. My friend's mom has MS, and she has great difficulty in walking. Inconsiderate people park in the H spots, forcing her to park far away and walk painfully to get to the store. When I see cars parked in H spots, without a hangtag or H plate, I make it a point to call it in and/or remind the car's owner how selfish, inconsiderate, and lazy they are.
