Things That Really Grind My Gears #5: Flatbush Mentality while Dating Toronto People
I will try posting one or two grinds per week to keep this as an ongoing segment.
You know what really grinds my gears?!…
…Hearing a story of this dude from Flatbush who dated this Toronto chick who happens to have been really frum, but who’s family are very “kippah srugah” (gotta give in to the masses) type. The dude in question, had no issues with her family as long as she was frum (the father happened to have been a real Talmud Chacham in a kippah srugah). One of the reasons that the boy decided to stop seeing her was because he couldn’t get over the fact that her family has a “Yom Ha’atzmaut party” every year…What I find funny here is that in the Flatbush mentality, it’s perfectly ok for a family to have a Thanksgiving dinner, which happens to be a Pagan tradition, but to have one for Yom Ha’atmzaut, is just over the top.
Here’s an idea, stop going for our gals! Stick to your own people….it’s times like these when segregation/apartheid might be the correct option (that was a joke…or was it?).
More to come next week. Stay Tuned….
Please send me some suggestions (via reply to this thread) of things that Really Grind YOUR Gears, and I will post the winner in a few weeks!
