Damn, I hate people like this. It's so incredibly rude to think that you're so high and mighty that you can pull shit like that just because you got offended. If I were the store owner, I would have asked you to leave.
"Jesus" is no excuse for you to be a bitch.

"Anyway, I told the store manager that I was offended by that thing and because of that I wouldn't buy anything at her store. And then she laughed....because what works in USA does not work there! You can't threaten them with that stuff."
And then you wonder why so many Greeks, and other Europeans, think Americans tourists are nothing but a bunch of ignorant idiots with too much money and too little respect for cultures that have been around before white America was a twinkle in the eye of the Vikings.

Her husband laughed at her.
The store manager laughed at her.
We are laughing at her.
Mmmm, I see a pattern emerging.

I told the store manager that I was offended by that thing and because of that I wouldn't buy anything at her store. And then she laughed...
You got lucky she didn't give a wink at her "cousins" outside. Anyway, you would've been laughed at anywhere in the Balkans, not just in Greece, 'cause we don't actually respect dumb people over here.

Io Pan! Io Pan Pan!
Rachael, men have penises, including male gods. I can't imagine what sort of weird anti-sex cult you must be in if you aren't aware of that fact. Sorry to shock you.
Anyway, as the Waterboys sing, "Long live Pan!"
11/6/2007 4:42:32 AM
Why not take your next holiday in England, Racheal. Heehee.
11/6/2007 5:55:31 AM
That's been going on since the days of Jesus there and to this day, they are still selling those gods....believe it or not!
An observant person might notice that God has done nothing to stop it or punish the Greeks since then. Almost as if you're the only one getting her knickers in a twist about it...
11/6/2007 6:07:02 AM
The poor husband, Racheal must be an embarassment to be in public with.
11/6/2007 6:17:55 AM
Someone tell her 'pancakes' are so called because they used to be consumed as a sacrement to Pan in pagan rituals, please![*]
I want to see her vomit out her spine!
[* This is not true, but when has that ever stopped a fundie believing something?]

When your jaw dropped you were just an ass.

Dear Rest of the World,
You have this American's permission to pillory people like Ratcheal59 here; to instruct them just how shit-ignorant they are; to take all their money; and to kick them in the arse.
If I ever visit your land, I will have made a point of at least learning the basics of your language and customs.
11/6/2007 6:51:50 AM
Yeah, people in other countries get to look at statues of men who
have penises want to be reeeeeeeeeeeeal fertile, and they have lower crime rates than we do. Who'd ha' thunk it?
As for complaining to the store manager, we need a "Political correctness is perfectly okay when I do it" award.
11/6/2007 7:17:43 AM
I have trouble understanding how someone can be happily married yet repelled by the concept of genitalia.
11/6/2007 7:21:11 AM
It's curious, I would have thought you would be more upset about the half goat part.
11/6/2007 7:22:57 AM
Since Jesus was in Galilee and Jerusalem for the 33 years of his life, I don't think he saw much Paganism. And dear, don't you see that the Pan, whatever actual thing it was, was meant to be a souvenir, not to be taken seriously?, you know, that trash they sell to tourists to make them believe they're still in the ancient Greece(because, in case you ethnocentric dullard didn't notice, they're Orthodox)?. No wonder, as a woman married to a Greek man too, that your husband laughed at you.
11/6/2007 7:49:35 AM
Of course the manager was not afraid, because, unlike you, she knows that you'll never come back to her store,.........because you'll never come back to Greece, for that matter.
11/6/2007 7:52:49 AM
That's so high school
(kinda reminds me of this commercial where a bunch of American girls travels to Italy and they "pinch" Leonardo's DAVID in the butt- stupid)
David B. - I'll sooooooooooooooo start spreading this rumor!

I don't know where you shop, but threatening stores with non-patronage generally doesn't work here, either. You're just not that important.
It's a pity that the majority of Americans that manage to visit other nations are culturally stunted ethnocentrists. It forces the rest of us to claim Canadian when we go abroad.
11/6/2007 8:20:32 AM
So long as it's those of you with an IQ in the triple digits, I'm sure none of us Canucks mind.
11/6/2007 8:53:16 AM
Actually, the ancient Romans/Greeks saw large penises as laughable, not admirable; to them, smaller was generally better. So giving Pan--an incestuous joker little demi-god of sorts--a huge penis is rather jesting and satirical rather than connected with the idea of fertility.
11/6/2007 8:58:58 AM
So long as it was only your jaw that dropped, not your drawers, you are ok!
What this backwoods and unsophisticated doll is talking about is a Satyr, or Pan himself. They always sported enormous erections as they were gods of fertility. So what? Big deal! Get a little culture and grow up.
No wonder Europeans laugh at this kind of American. The really sad thing, though, is that this is part of American culture too, inherited from European forebears. But fundies reject it. Just like works of art with nudity in them. It's pathetic and ignorant.
This deserves an award for Pathetic Ignorance.

Please, if someone here works in television pleeease comission a travel show starring Racheal59. I'd just love to see her ordering African tribeswomen to cover their shame or having a panic attack in the middle of Amsterdam's red light district.
11/6/2007 9:44:45 AM
What this little gem doesnt tell is what happened when Rachel and hubby returned to the good ol' US of A:
Ah went into the kitchen, where every good fundy housewife belongs, and there was a frying PAN!! Holy shit! Ah'm supposed t' cook meat in this PAN (and you know what MEAT also means)
11/6/2007 10:39:58 AM
Hey Rachael, sounds like you need a dildo.
I guess Jesus didn't have a penis?
