Ya, I have a Sunday Faith Post up, of course, underneath this post, but I HAD to tell you all something that just happened that I loved!
I went to the Ralph’s Grocery store after church to buy a few things….ground turkey, couple of bottles of inexpensive wines, lettuce, a lemon, and milk ; $72.00 (with the Ralph’s card discount). I swear. The wines were both sale priced at UNDER $8 each, too!
Some of you read my post recently where I said two Hispanic guys, check-out clerks at Ralph’s and Smart ‘n Final, said this to me (within days of each other), when I moaned about the high cost of groceries, “You know if the minimum wage goes up, we’ll not be able to afford ANYTHING because prices will have to go up so high!” I nearly FROZE thinking I’d heard incorrectly! THEY GET IT!
SO TODAY: a Black guy’s bagging me at Ralph’s (so to speak :-)) and I said “$72 for this little bit of stuff…man! Wait till minimum wage goes up and we’ll see how high it goes!” HE looks at me very seriously, as he’s stuffing stuff into my bag, “That’s right…nobody will be able to afford anything…” I said “You understand that, too!?” He leans toward me and says “I’m a REPUBLICAN” HA!! I nearly fell down!
So this Black guy continues with how his friends won’t listen to him but he doesn’t care…..‘Best thing that ever happened to ME was becoming Conservative..’
I figured this might not be a Sunday Faith Post, per se, and you know my own rule here that I only post faith stuff on Sundays, but if THIS doesn’t lift up our faith in fellow man!?
The statistics are that if ONE person feels like that, a LOT do………Remember ol’ “Louis” and pray that he chats his conservatism up to his friends!.
(without getting beaten to a pulp, that is!)
