An angel doesn’t get its wings.

Father was walking out of a store earlier today when the following conversation ensued with the Salvation Army bell-ringer.

BELL-RINGER:  Merry Christmas!

DAD:  Happy holidays!

BELL-RINGER:  I’ll make you a deal.  Make a donation and I’ll let you stand here and ring the bell.  Y’know, I’ve been doing this since before you were this tall, and every time someone has donated an angel gets its wings.  Every time, I guarantee it.

DAD:  *slow turn around*  Is that a fact?  Y’know, I read the Salvation Army’s website and they use some of this money to lobby against LGBT rights.  I’ll make my donations to groups that treat people equally.

*beat*

*beat*

BELL-RINGER:  Merry Christmas.

DAD:  Happy holidays.

And the award for poking the wrong hornet’s nest goes to that guy.
