Two nicely dressed ladies happen 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 the South.
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 the South
"Well, isn't that precious?"
The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my
husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz." Again, the lady from the
South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"
The first woman continued boasting, "Then, when my third child
was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet." Yet
again, the Southern lady commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"
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 Southern
"Charm school?" the first woman cried, "Oh my God! What on earth
for?" said the first woman.
The Southern lady responded, "Well for example, instead of saying
"Who gives a shit?" I learned to say, "Well, isn't that precious?"
