…because I’m not a bigoted Jesus Freak.
As most of you know, I teach Taekwondo. I had a lady call and set up an appointment for this morning for her two kids to do an intro lesson. They show up, she does paperwork, I give the tour of the school and start on the intro. Mom asks if we start classes with a prayer. I reply that we don’t. Things go downhill from there
Mom: “Might I ask why you don’t give thanks to God Almighty and his son Jesus for making it possible for you to practice?”
Me: “Ma’am, people’s religious problems are their own. I try not to complicate matters. Besides, to the best of my knowledge, there is only one person in the school who is a Christian.”
Mom: “Oh dear Lord. Come on, kids, we are in a place of evil.”
Me: “Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.” Well, I didn’t say it out loud, but I sure thought it.
I also wanted to say “Here’s your sign”, but I think it would have gone right over her head.
