to the following remark by an acquaintance?
Scene: Walmart, looking at Disney stuff
Story unfolds . . . said acquaintance approaches to say hi. Notices I’m looking at some Disney games and stuff. Asks if I’m buying for anyone specific. I said “No. I’m just an avid Disney fan.” Acquaintance says, “Have you ever been to Disneyland or Disney World?” I said, “We’ve been to Disney World several times! It’s one of our favorite vacations!!” Before I could ask if acquaintance has been to either, he says, “Oh crap, another brain-washed fool sucked in by capitalism.” :blink::huh::huh::huh:???
I looked at him like he just stepped off another planet. Asked if he’d ever been to either. (Yes, in his “young and foolish days”, whatever that means.) I brilliantly responded “Geez, I’m sorry you feel that way.” :pinch: (I am soooo not good at quick thinking!!! :ph34r:) End of conversation. He walked away and I stood there wondering what just happened! Total stranger standing nearby just looked at me, shook her head, and said, “That is one strange dude.” :pinch:
