"happy holidays" outrage

Yesterday I was wrapping presents for charity donations, I had just served an ex-Muslim getting Christmas and Hanukkah presents for his friends, I wished him a happy Holidays and the woman next in line Screamed at me that I should be saying Merry Christmas because it is an insult to the lord.
1. I do not like people screaming at me
2. I like making money for the charity in this store so I could not be rude
SO I simply assured the woman I would not wish her a happy holiday. That made her smile that self satisfied smile. Like she won. But in reality in silence of my mind I wished her a holiday ans happy as she deserved which should have been pretty bad. Thanks FOX news for making more people unhappy around the country for your stupidity.

I laughed when she said I was a good person after that - little did she know the evil I wished her.

subject: slandering my state

Last night I was doing a charity thing. I guess some people just think older people are stupid or something, I must look really old because this one woman kept repeating about "they" because it looked like she thought I did not understand, Oh I understood.

I was doing some charity work and you can see the disappointment in people's faces when they realize that you kind of would like a donation for providing a service to them. One of the people who comes up to wrap said she was moving from NJ to North Carolina when her older husband retires next year, So I asked where she was going to retire. She said the North Carolina Beach, so I snorted - not that it is not beautiful there, but I still remember how the state government made a law to ignore rising tides and for developers and city codes to go by the tide estimates of previous decades - so I just said she should make sure she was on on the ocean front. because of the laws of the state - and she asked where I lived and then told me to move because "they" were coming up the road to invade my town, They are coming from Newark she said, they are coming to take over your town. I said Alien invaders, trying to lighten it up, but she looked at me and said - do you know what I mean? Yeah , sure, I said - still think asking her or money was not the time to get into a race discussion, I said I knew, but she looked at me again and said I was going to lose my town. And then she mentioned my high taxes, well for my high taxes, I get a lot of services, 25% of the land is park land, my dog and I can take off in a lot of directions and hit one of 5 different parks in less than a mile, We have zoning laws, Santa visited our town at 3 different free events, there are all kind of things, a free senior bus, various health services (free bone scan, free blood pressure checks and help to gauge your own machine, free rabies shots for dogs, concerts in the summer, good schools, etc. lots of free things) Anyway a few more "they"s and she was done.

Which goes to what my sister says. the worst problem her state was from old NJ people moving to her state and not wanting to pay school taxes and being racist. This woman was so concerned about the cost of living up here, wait until she finds up one mayor in NC was walked to Washington because the state refused to expand ACA and hospitals are closing because of that. North Carolina is a beautiful state led by idiots now wanting to ruin it, but I would rather stay with NJ where I can walk places and do things even if I could not drive. May not be perfect, but it is good for me. And can hardly wait until all the people worried by "They" leave.
