I Want To Know This Person

While I haven't had a stranger make a comment about my psoriasis, several family members HAVE--and I don't care WHO makes a rude comment, it hurts.  This person is my hero--and probably had way too many rude comments made and decided to 'get back' at people who make them.  It also is very, very funny.  Via Not Always Right.

Convenience Store | North Battleford, SK, Canada
(I have psoriasis, a hereditary condition which leaves me with large red patches on my scalp. This occurs while I am waiting in line at a convenience store with a woman standing behind me.)
Customer: “What’s wrong with you?”
Me: “I beg your pardon?”
Customer: “Those ugly blotches all over your head. What do you have?”
Me: “Oh, it’s a highly contagious flesh eating disease. Very painful.”
Customer: “Oh my gosh! Really? How contagious is it?”
Me: “Well, you probably already have it.”
Customer: *rushes out of the store in a panic*

LMAO! I wish I was as quick with comebacks as that person!

OH, I ALWAYS have great comebacks--three hours AFTER I need them. :D Although, I have to wonder how many remarks this person had to hear before finally coming up with this one. :(

Clever comebacks are great--and I wish I was good at them, too. I still love the one that Churchill made: Attending a party in London, Churchill once again was drunk and intoxicated. An obviously extremely astute woman from Parliament apparently was irritated by Churchill’s mannerisms. When she finally had enough, she came up to him and yelled: “Winston, you’re drunk!” He may have been drunk but that apparently didn’t affect his cognitive functions as he merely replied:
“You’re right Bessie, and you’re ugly. But tomorrow morning, I’ll be sober.”

I NEVER think of things that good until I get home.

make sure you remember that one for next time someone has the audacity to say something about your condition.

As I said, I'm SO clever--three hours later! ;)

THANKFULLY, I don't need the 'contagious skin condition' comeback right at the moment--the meds are keeping me quite clear, thankfully. But, I certainly will remember this for the future in case I ever do need it.

I'm sure it taught that woman a lesson on being rude. ;)
