Sundry Sunday :: seasonal modern Goofus and Gallant .

29 Nov

In the Holiday Season!

Goofus insists on saying “Merry Christmas” and gets offended if he’s told not to.
Gallant either says “happy holidays” or a neutral “hello/goodbye/have a nice day” like he would during the rest of the year.

Goofus goes to family parties and criticizes relatives who are socially below him for their identities and life choices.
Gallant engages in pleasant conversation with his relatives and does his best not to make them feel uncomfortable.

Goofus, when he does not have a date to a holiday party, goes and tries to make the single women there feel guilty for his being alone at the holidays.
Gallant, when he does not have a date to a holiday party, goes and spends time with his friends or makes new friends.

Goofus takes advantage of seasonal workers and steals things from department stores.
Gallant is respectful of every employee he encounters because he knows it’s a hard time of the year.

Goofus aggressively posts memes on social media that say things like JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.
Gallant is respectful in sharing his religious beliefs, if he has any, and doesn’t mock others for having different beliefs.

–your fangirl heroines.
