Hmmm. First time I've ever written a Daily Evil
. It's deserved.
As I passed a woman and her child today on the way to McDonald's
, the woman said, "Merry Christmas
" to me as I passed. To this I gave my usual reply, "Thank you, ma'am. And a Happy Chanukah
At this point her face got all scrunched up
as if trying to believe I actually said such a thing. Then, after a moment, she said, "There's no need for profanity
, young man
Now I was pissed off for two reasons. One, that she described my religion
(by birth, anyway) as "profanity
". I believe (by interpreting the look of disdain
on her face) that she understood what I said and was deliberately trying to insult me, as opposed to believing I had cursed at her in some foreign language
. Two, that she called me young man
, something I thought I'd never have to hear again after I turned twelve.
So, I said something truly evil
"Ma'am, what's your son's name?"
"Jonathan, there's no Santa Claus
Evil Rating: 10/10
, without question. It may only have deserved a 9, but I'm giving myself the last point as bonus for working the evil in under the guise of cordial
