Last week I decided to get a jump on life and pre prepare, which is how I found myself in a greeting card shop looking through heart covered cards with vomit enduring verses stuffed inside!
As I stood in my little love bubble looking at Wife cards my attention was drawn to an old man muttering beside me.
Seemingly he had found the same sex Valentine couple cards and couldn’t help but share his disgust!
‘It isn’t right’, ‘look at this’, ‘it’s a disgrace’, ‘it just isn’t right’. He remarked towards no one in particular, peppering in a few possibly offensive words.
Now for the most part the other customers ignored him, pretending instead to enjoy the verses of various in sympathy and congratulations on your vasectomy cards.
Feeling as if I should defuse this situation and acutely aware that the older Gentleman was merely a victim of the generational gap, I decided to step up & be the adult in the room
I reached forward, lifted a ‘To my Darling Husband, from your Husband’ card and turned to the older Gentleman while slowing shaking my head. Placing my hand on his shoulder, I looked into his eyes and said softly ‘if loving my Brian is wrong then I don’t want to be right’
I have never seen colour drain so quickly from anything, never mind a face & before I could say a word he had moonwalked to the door without taking his eyes off me!
Chuckling to myself as I placed the card back on the rack I caught sight of the £3.50 price tag, the extravagance of which was still on my mind as I paid for my £1 Wife card.
The moral of the story? It’s Valentines on Thursday, don’t get caught empty handed
.... oh and intolerance has no place in our World! If you don’t like it, don’t look. After all why should it only be the straight guys who get stung for flowers
