We went to our Blissdom conference and the overall message was be yourself. I am sure most of you know this site is owned by two women. We are very different in a lot of ways and similar in others. One difference is I am Jewish. Yes, my husband is Catholic and my son goes to a Baptist school. I believe that everyone’s religion has value and there is something to learn from everyone.
So on to my new column idea- Chutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.
Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment. For more Yiddish Words
This is mine: I was in line in a retail store waiting my turn (forever) and another register opened. I was next in line and this lady came from the back of the line and ran to the new register. What CHUTZPAH!!! It was my turn!
