I was so ticked today at the woman at Hallmark. Jen and I went to get father's day cards-me to Jewel grocery store since I had to get food too, Jen to the Hallmark right next door. Jen selects a card that had beautiful words that truly describe her and her dad. She selected the card solely on the words...takes it to the register where the woman ringing her up says "um, this is a mahogany card, you might want to select a different card". Jen says "what??" She points out to Jen that the front has a picture of a black dad and a black daughter...

Jen tells her that she will keep the card that it is perfect for her.  I told her she should have told the woman that she doesn't see color that she sees the heart of people...but Jen didn't think of that she was just so taken back by the ignorance of this woman.

But, really? What is this ladies problem? I was floored that she said that to her. Bigot much?

I think that probably she isn't a bigot. I would be she was just trying to be helpful.

I think she should probably keep her comments to herself, though, because in general, I don't want to be chatted up about my purchases by the cashier. Like this one time when I bought Imodium and Tums and the cashier said, "How are you tonight? Oh, I guess not too good."

I'm proud of Jen.
