I have only used that line sarcastically once in my life.
A perfect stranger in her 60’s I would guess, took exception to me (a young white woman(about 30ish) at the time) talking to a black man (school teacher friend of the family) 20-30 yrs older than me in a Walmart snackbar. I had just come from church and was wearing my church clothes (skirt above the knees, turtleneck and cardigan with 2 inch pumps) She walked up to my friends table, gave me the onceover and screamed, “You’re a ho, nothing but a ho!” My kids were sitting at the next table over (ages 12,9, and 7) eating and chatting were as mortified as I was!
She proceeded to tell me I was a horrible mother because I sent my son to the restroom without accompanying him and then had to send my oldest son to go find him when he took too long. She ranted at the top of her lungs about how she was a court reporter and she was going to turn me in and have my kids taken away. My friend asked her if she had ever read the gospel of Matthew and quoted Judge not lest ye be judged and she totally blew him off. I was so freaked out and then I realized she was totally blowing him off and trying to engage me. I don’t like huge scenes in public and I was just whispering things like please don’t judge me, and, please keep your voice down.
Finally I had enough of her rant and I looked at her and said, “What? You want me to walk him to the bathroom? He’s 9 yrs old, do you want me to hold his hand while he goes too? Look lady, you have issues, I will pray for you!” OMGosh! You would have thought I had accused her of being the devil himself, I thought she was going to hit me. She screamed at the top of her lungs, “Don’t pray for me! I DON’T NEED PRAYERS FROM YOU!!!” As she huffed off I was shaking, but I looked up and said, “Have a nice day!”
BTW, I don’t recommend her response…obviously. My male friend and I were discussing my classes at college as I had just gone back and he was encouraging me. I assure you there was absolutely nothing sleazy going on… not that it was her or anyone else’s business anyway.
