Anyone who knows Southern Baptists or has ever been in a Southern Baptist Church, knows that Southern Baptists are serious about their seating. They have their pew and their seat. This is serious, and it is important. Do not mess with a Southern Baptist’s seat at church. Some of these people have sat in the same seat for 50 years, others 50 minutes, but they are darn serious about that ‘assigned’ seating.
Thursday morning Nathan drove Princess to school. He parked in the First row.
I never realized quite how deeply ingrained Southern Baptist Seating is in us… until Nathan calls me on his way to work to
ream chastise laughingly chide me for not instructing him as to parking protocol. See, we (about 5 or 6 of my girlfriend’s and I) always park in the SECOND row with our cars in alternating directions in a line so that we can talk to each other from car to car. It never struck me that we did this. every. single. morning. Until Nathan called to tell me that he had gotten in trouble for not parking properly, and I was therefore also in trouble for not informing him of the proper protocol.
Oops. My Bad.
I’m telling you people, us Southerners,we’re a weird bunch.
Thanks to the
idiots incompetence the brilliant dunderheads at Time Warner our internet has been really spotty so I haven’t been able to log on for most of the last two days. The withdrawal symptoms are becoming really bad.
