A Rabbi Walks Into A Supermarket…

, , , , , , | Working | December 24, 2020

It was Christmas Eve and I was working a very long shift. We have a regular customer who happens to be a rabbi. He is an older man so I offered to help him with his shopping. We chatted as we shopped, asking about each other’s families, etc.

When we reached the end of his list I said goodbye to him and, not thinking, I added, “Merry Christmas!” As soon as the words left my mouth, I realized what I had just said and to whom I had said it.

I was about to explain that I had been saying it so many times that day that it was almost a habit when he smiled, held up his hand and said, “Don’t you dare apologize! I’ll take it in the spirit in which you meant it and wish you a Happy Hanukkah!”

God Bless the people who aren’t concerned with political correctness!
