What is the worst politically correct thing to you?


Mine is still people calling Easter eggs "Spring Eggs".............................Yet, they still do it on Easter, not March 21st.

 Maybe when she sneezed, her lip ring fell out into her hands and she couldn't talk enough to say, "Thank you."  Just kidding! 

Common courtesy has become politically incorrect, I suppose. thank you

Quoting imamomzilla:

 Here's a funny (in a sad way) true story. I was out shopping with the kids last weekend and the clerk ringing us up had blue hair, a couple of tats, lip ring, etc....

She sneezed, so in a knee-jerk reaction, I said "God Bless You". She ignored me. So my son chimes in, "Bless You!"  At which she just glared at him.

What a creep.

How hard is it so "Thank You"? Sheesh~

 Having to worry about exactly how you word a kind greeting is taking away the joy of GIVING it!

Quoting erika9009:

What if the politically correct thing is offensive???

So like Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  If you say "Happy Holidays" my mom, she will correct you like no ones business.  If she knows you are Jewish, you get Happy Hanukkah from her.

She is not the only one.  I lady in front of me got mad at the cashier at Safeway because she said Happy Holidays, not Merry Christmas.

You know, we Californians are too uptight................................LOL

Doesn't bother me. Rather be politically correct than being offensive.

I have to pick just one? I don't like political correctness.

A. That leg thing is ridiculous.

B. By the sound of her appearance, the girl who looked offended by "God bless you" may have had a few more issues than just being a jerk to polite people.

C. It's winter. It's a break. Get over it.

D. I say "Merry Christmas" all the time. People hestitate to say it to me because I look Jewish (I get it from my Jewish grandmother). I'm short, I have dark hair, a Aquiline (large) nose, and boobs. It's cool; Happy Holidays is a nice thing to hear, too.

E. If you are offended by common courtesy and not making assumptions about someone's faith or ethnicity, you are the problem.

 LOL. You may be right. Her lip did curl a little when she snarled at my son. The tackle may have fallen out....not sure, I had to look away from the Bass.

 My only complaint about PCness is when it is taken so far by some people that even using words as intended for other things are "wrong".  Example:  We had a goat that we called "Black B@$t@rd"  He was a castrated male that was still a BAD boy!!  He butted the gate and scared the children.  A friend came over and we were leaning on the fence when he started coming toward us.  I yelled at him the get away, using his name (he was going to be for meat,so we didn't want to name him anything normal) and she said: "You shouldn't call him "black."  Seriously?  WTH?  B@$t@rd was okay?  Just not the black part?  That is taking it too far, shall we change the word for that really dark color?  NO.  Black means black, it is a color and some people are a bit crazy.

 Thanks, but it's only for the ones we plan to eat.  We've had chickens named Supper, Drumstick, and Roasted.  A duck named Turducken.  and Goats named Braised, Chevon, Black B, and T-bone.  We want a Pig so we can name him New Years!  We were told not to name them things that will endear you to them, but these guys weren't endearing to begin with!  :-)
