SEPTEMBER 4, 2013
Two informally dressed ladies happened to start up a conversation during an endless wait in the LAX airport.
The first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy man.
The second was a well-mannered elderly woman from northwest Wyoming.
When the conversation centered on whether they had any children, the California woman started by saying, "When my first child was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me."
The lady from Wyoming commented, "Well, bless your heart."
The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz....
Again, the lady from Wyoming commented, "Well, bless your heart."
The first woman continued boasting, "Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet.
Yet again, the Wyoming lady commented, "Well, bless your heart."
The first woman then asked her companion, "What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?"
"My husband sent me to charm school," declared the Wyoming lady.
"Charm school?" the first woman cried, "Oh, my God! What on earth for?"
The Wyoming lady responded, "Well for example, instead of saying, "Who gives a shit?" I learned to say, "Well, bless your heart!"
