Since I missed ‘Tough Titty Tuesday’ yesterday I thought I would bring you ‘Whiny Ass Wednesday’ today.
So Mayim Bialik of ‘Blossom’ and ‘The Big Bang Theory’ walked into a craft store to buy whatever bullshit she was buying for her kid’s birthday party and this is what she found to bitch about.
Not even kidding.
She claims, “I wasn’t 10 feet into the store when I was distracted by the music playing from the speakers. A woman with a beautiful voice sang, “Lord, you are the answer. Jesus Christ, you are the answer…”
Mayim is Jewish.
She further states, “I was dumbfounded. I wandered aimlessly about for a second, not knowing what to do, and I finally found my way to the front counter where I asked for the manager.”
Upon finding the manager she questions the manager about the Christian music, blah, blah, blah. The manager tells her, “This is our playlist. This is what we play in our stores.”
Mayim Bialik’s response?
“I was shocked. I couldn’t stop my mouth from saying the words, “I don’t want to shop here,” and I stumbled out the door.”
You can read the whole ridiculous article here.That should have been the end of it. Jewish customer walks into a Christian owned store, hears music that is offensive to her, she issues her grievance with the manager and she leaves.
Towards the end of her article Mayim states, “Maybe I should send a polite message to the local store and to corporate headquarters, and consider writing letters to the editors of local newspapers and doing posts on social media to let other secular shoppers know. But I already fear the kinds of reactions that this post will bring.”
What is with these celebrities and contacting corporate headquarters and whining??
Barbra Streisand did the same thing when she didn’t like the way Siri pronounced her name!
You can read my ‘Tough Titty Tuesday’ post on Babs, here.What’s most irritating about Mayim’s whole article is the pettiness of it and how she totally blows it out of proportion and ends up bringing in her black friends and the history of the Jews. For fuck sake. We get it. You’re offended by Jesus music. You did the right thing. You left the store. You’ll never shop there again.
Let it go.
Holy shit. Mayim Bialik is not only an actress she’s also a neuroscientist!
Seriously. Why did she come so unhinged? I don’t get it. You’d think somebody who’s that much of a brainiac could hold it together a little bit better and not have a fucking meltdown over the music played in a stupid craft store, which she didn’t name in her article but we all know is ‘Hobby Lobby.’
I get it. I don’t shop at Walmart because of the stupid, lazy people I encounter there but I don’t call up Doug McMillon and whine about it. Trust me. The President/CEO of Walmart knows the type of people he employs.
What say ye’? Have you ever been so offended walking into a store that you had a public meltdown and felt “dumbfounded?”
Weigh in. I wanna’ know your thoughts on this.
Happy Whiny Ass Wednesday everyone.
Please do find something to whine about today.
