Just bought a case of Comice pears, and pissed off some old guy, but amused the hell out of the produce lady. "What are you going to do with a whole case of pears?" he says.
"Not that it's your business, but I have a decent size family that will eat them. If they ripen all at once, I'll can some."
"You can't can. Canning is women's work."
Raised eyebrow. "Really? I beg to differ. And I bet this lady would too."
She crosses her arms and awaits his reply.
"Everyone has their place. Men do the work, women do the housework, the cleaning, the canning."
"Huh. Well, I have been an at-home dad for the last six years. I love to cook, I love to can, I love my kids. I make soap. If that's women's work - sign me up to be a women!"
"Well, God has a purpose for all of us."
"Ohhhhh...okay then. We're gonna go now."
I personally don't believe there is any way to argue rational logic against religious conviction. It's like cars vs. a wombats bunghole. It makes no sense.
