Face Book Speculations, Rants, and Other Offerings
Reposted from my Face Book page, with some additional wit and charm.
RACISM AT THE GROCERY STORY
Two women working at Safeway overheard: “Oh it’s not us who text while driving. No, no, it’s Lebanese woman you know hiding their phones under those things they wear on their heads, those parkas or bookas or something.”
Just mentioning this as a public service and to assist the Edmonton Police Service in honing in on Lebanese women so they can stop wasting their time watching out for Caucasians or men for that matter.
Thank goodness those Safeway woman figured this out. And good on them for surveying what must have been thousands of vehicles and being able to see those phones hidden away under those parkas or bookas or whatever they are called.
Tip of the hat to them – and to Safeway for hiring such diligent employees who are bold enough to speak the truth while customers wait to pay for their food.
Whatever your faith, your spirituality, or you disbelief in a higher power… Easter is about :”new life.” It’s about renewal and also about forgiveness. It is about quelling our darker inclinations and turning away from that which keeps us separate from and too often ugly toward one another. Easter is about moving forward toward a light that guides, warms, and inspires us.
That message is not owned by Christians and if you happen to think it is, then I suggest you are missing the point.
Why is it servers bring you one tiny butter with 3 huge pancakes and then when you ask for another butter they bring you 6?
Weren’t settlers from Europe illegal immigrants?
