We rolled the dice on CVS because they were fast and I had a coupon code (thanks Slickdeals) and we couldn't be happier. We stuffed 4 albums for all the family that helped us pay for the wedding.


Four albums?!  Talk about overkill.  Your family must be really involved in your weeding and gardening.  Just email them a single pic of the front yard after the Chemlawn guy shows up and kills all the dandelions.

DrBreRuthlessVillain: mooseyfate: As well they should. Your behavior isn't acceptable, you should be made to understand that. No amount of fake CVS counseling is going to change their attitude since it's based entirely on ignorance, wether it was passed down in the family or picked up from the environment around them. I'm not going to tolerate someone else's blatant racism just because their parents were pieces of shiat and they were too lazy and/or cowardly to educate themselves. I grew up in an incredibly racist town and let me tell you, it's no way to treat another human.

Meh.  A better way to go, IMO, is to understand that people are weak/frail enough without having an added artificial weakness for certain words.  It took a while, but as a younger half-breed I eventually realized that getting "set off" by some of the words other people sometimes said was ridiculous--especially if you take the idea to its logical conclusion.  I'm with you on the idea that racism isn't nice and all, but in the context of a person-to-person interaction isn't it just one of many forms of bad manners?  There is a bottomless well of potential litigants if we're going to start letting people collect million-dollar judgements for being on the receiving end of someone else's rudeness.


I'm offended cause you said half-breed. $56,225 offended, after legal fees, it feels like, about. What's the most you can pay without pulling chapter 13? Just curious. Not rabidly litigious at all.

Look, stop trying to find the white equivalent to every instance of racism. There isn't one. Fortunately for your grandparents, in the history of the world most other races haven't had the opportunity or the desire to oppress and label white people. When it did happen to white people it was at the hands of other people. Stop telling people how stupid they are for getting offended because YOU can't be offended with a racial slur. You all should be thankful, not angry.

Or a single kick to the groin, if the cashier is male.
