…You know, after my verbal altercation with a crazy JW lady @ the grocery store sunday all i can say is…subhanallah we r moving to Saudi.
So heres the scoop…in hindsight, I could of just popped my ipod in my ears and ignored her or straight up threatened to call security, but I didn’t because I wanted to let her know that NO, she can NOT go around harassing people!
So, I was over at my moms all weekend, out in the sticks, enjoying the country air and quiet. On the way home Sunday we stopped at this grocery store in a small town nearby and I ran in which my son stayed in the car w/ my mom. Just to get some cake, spaghetti and sauce. I also wasn’t dressed ‘too’ exotic, just a plain long Shukr linen top, Shukr linen pants and a colored shaylah. I walked in and this very random, older lady comes up to me and says “where are you from?” and I said, “uh, here!?! why?” And gave her a quizzical, your crazy sorta face and then I said, “why you wanna know?” She said, “aww that’s nice, so your not tooooooooo far from home now are you?????”
I rolled my eyes and strutted off. uhhhhhh huuuuuuuh.
Okay so i get my stuff and I get into line and there was someone infront of me, she jumps in behind me with her 1 thing of chocolate powder and I turn around, eye her and think…oh shizer, she’s crazy. LOL
She proceeds to get downright rude and nasty to me, which…I heartily gave it right back. Wonderfully enough I ended up offending her enough back that I doubt she’ll try what she tried with me…again.
anyway soo…I turn around and after my heart sinks she says
“sooo, are you a born Muslim? a convert? did you convert because you got married? does your husband beat you”?
So i said, in a firm voice…that is NONE of your business…and each time she said the same dang thing, finally I said, “that is none of your D**N business” and thought “girl…it’s ON!”…
To which she said, well, i’m a JW and I want you to know that God loves you and wants you to go back to him! And she then said all kinds of crazy stuff which I totally blocked out because I was starting to see red!!!
So then when I realised she was going to be VERY persistant and not back off. I turned back around and said, rather loudly…You know, where I’m from in the city you DO NOT go around asking people personal questions, you dont know me, that is NONE of your D**N business!!!” she said, “So you did convert because you married one of those men…didnt you!”
(lol, I dont know why she thinks I must be a convert in the first place…what because I dont have an accent or something?!? LOL)
To that i said…you dont know me, that is none of your business.
she said, “well, your in a small town and yes it IS my business I’m a Christian women, I want to know!”
To which i said “It doesnt matter, whether your in a small town or a big city you dont go around asking people personal questions, dont you know any manners?”
In the meantime I ended up letting her go before me in the hopes she’s shuttup and move on!
Well, she started to get really offended because I was telling her off!
So then she started to say some stupid stuff.
I finally just was like, this is crazy and said “oi vey, what a shmuck” slightly audibly… (because in this fair city, yiddish is a popular language when your angry, regardless of what you roots are!)
and she jumped on that, she said “You were a Jew! yes thats it! you were a Jew!”.
I just said, lady, whatever…
she then said, “well your SOOO rude! I hope Barack Obamas father was not as horrible a person as YOU obviously are!!!”
To which I said…”I dont give a flying kr@p lady, I didnt vote for him anyway!”
She huffed and stomped off
LOL, what a psycho…
now, I could have gotten much nastier…but she WAS an old lady and I, unlike her WAS taught some manners!
