So having "Good manners" is all about putting up with other people's bullshit religions and holidays with a smiling happy face? Screw that! Now go have a happy winter solstice, because Christ wasn't born in the winter (if he even existed).
A AMWAY sales lady gets in an elevator and just before the elevator reaches her floor she lets out a rip-roaring paint peeling fart.
Embarrassed now because she knows when the door opens she will be blamed since she is the only one in the elevator. She reaches in her AMWAY bag and sprays some pine scented air freshner.
The elevator opens and a big burly biker steps in and say wow...whats that smell? The lady proud of her AMWAY product says "what do you think it smells like? The biker says "Smells like someone took a shit on a Christmas tree." :D
quote:Having good manners would have been thanking someone for wishing you a Merry Christmas, not bitching about it because you're not Christian.
Is it good manners to assume everybody is the same religion as you are?
Nope. I don't think wishing someone a Merry Christmas makes that assumption.
You don't have to be christian to celebrate christmas, and most people do celebrate christmas, whether they are christian or not, so to not say Merry Christmas becuase of a small percentage of the population might get offended is retarded. Especially, when 99% of the people you say that to, will be celebrating christmas anyways.
Its lame to forbid the greeters at walmart from saying Merry Christmas, don't you think?
Actually, really good manners is to try and not to force you views on strangers. Your view is that, since Christians are the majority in this country, that we non-christians should just suck it up and put on a happy (non-bitching) face. So you just don't care about people who aren't Christians, they can just shutup about it already as far as you are concerned. You do know that the Christian religion isn't the largest organized religion on the planet?
