Do not read this post if you have any interest in seeing the movie Marley & Me.
Delia and I were standing in line at the Redbox, waiting to check out a movie.
Me: "Hey, that movie about the cute dog is out on DVD, Do you want to get it?"
Woman in front of us in line: "That movie was a Terrible Mistake, my 6 year old cried for two hours after it was over."
Me: "Oh." I opened my mouth to say that this kid isn't much of a crier, but didn't get the chance.
Woman in front of us in line: "The dog dies at the end."
Me: Furious Glare at idiot woman
Woman in front of us: Smiles idiotically, Shrugs shoulders, says "Sorry."
Me (to Delia): "Bedtime Stories is out this week-"
Woman in front of us in line: cutting me off "It's all out."
Me: Furious Glare "Thanks."
Eventually that woman left. She didn't even get a movie - she was just standing around in front of the Redbox. Delia and I decided on BOLT. After we finished grocery shopping and were in the car, Delia said "I don't like that woman." And I said "Me neither." Then Delia compared the woman to one of the mean bullies in her class, and I had to tell her that it wasn't nice to call people stupid. But inside, I really think that some people are, in fact, stupid, and I wonder if I am doing my daughter a favor or a disservice by teaching her otherwise.
