Today as I left the district office after some training (new MacBook pro!) a student came running out after me.
“Ms. Rowse! I am so so so so sorry you had to hear that!”
“You didn’t hear X talking to Mrs. Y?”
“Oh. Good. Because she was telling Mrs. Y that you are Mormon, and Mitt Romney is Mormon, so Mormons are everywhere and taking over and we’re all gonna be polygamists soon.”
I guess on the bright side, and according to that logic, if Mitt Romney is elected then I’ll be married within the next four years.
(The student who ran out to tell me this was horrified at her peer’s brazen ignorance and insensitivity, and did take her to task over her comments. I just laughed.)
