#3 roof guy - "You're a Mormon?"
Me - "Yeah"
roof guy - "Hey but you have electricity"
Me - "Dude, We're not amish"
#2 Candle Customer - "Can I ask you a personal question?"
Me - "Sure" Me thinking - Oh great what is she going to ask?
Candle customer -"Is this a personal choice or is this something from your church? When I lived in Shaumberg we had a neighbor who was Mormon and they weren't allowed to eat American Cheese. Are Mormons allowed to eat American Cheese?"
Me - busting up laughing since I had never heard this one before. "Personal choice my friend." Ok what crazy mormon family out there is not eating american cheese?
#1 My personal favorite. A couple of years ago I was at a candle party in a South Chicago suberb. Lively Italian family and the host had made these colorful and I mean colorful vodka jello shot cups. Now Mormons may eat lots of jello but we don't drink and not only the host but several other ladies kept offering me these brightly colored drinks. I kept saying "no thank you" but they kept bugging me. Finally I said, "I'm a Mormon and I don't drink" One lady quickly said, "Oh sure, you can't drink but you can have more than one husband!!" I admit it I was rude and started laughing, "Who would want more than one husband? Are you nuts?" Now don't get me wrong I adore and love my husband but come on do people really think we have more than one husband?
