Open Letter

Dear Man eating lunch at La Isla Bonita yesterday,

While I totally understand your annoyance at being forced to listen to my friend fumble with her Nextel radio when her staff called while we were eating, did you have to be a total asshole about it? You are obviously a very important, busy man as indicated by your suit that was undoubtedly purchased as a closeout at TJ Maxx, but was it necessary for you to get up from your seat, grit your teeth and get in a 60 year old woman's face and tell her to "SHUT IT OFF RIGHT NOW" in front of my children? I realize that you must have been looking forward to enjoying your $5.95 special enchilada while soaking in the festive decor of La Isla Bonita, complete with gumball machine and big screen TV blasting reruns of Sabado Gigante on Univision. Fine dining at it's um.....finest.

The woman you yelled at is from the South. She is always a lady with impeccable manners and I thought that her reply to you whilst she sipped her sweet tea was indicative of her commitment to decorum. I wish I had taken a picture of your face as she sat with my baby bouncing on her knee, set down her phone and batted her long, lovely lashes at you and said "Fuck you Sir."

Fuck you indeed.
