WITCHING & BITCHING: Respect Your Elders!

The ladies of Witching & Bitching are trying to watch their show. Shhh….
One of the many things I have learned from films, both new and old, is to respect old women, especially old women with scary teeth or cataracts or dark, thick eyeliner. And Witching & Bitching seems to be a film in which a healthy respect for elders is in order. (And also, probably women with supernatural powers of all ages).
Be polite, be respectful and if you accidentally sass a senior, apologize. Maybe you made a thoughtless and cruel remark about her dentures or her cataract. Just apologize.
“I’m sorry I made fun of your dentures. It was wrong.”
“Sorry I disturbed your ancient slumber!”
We all make mistakes and an apology can go a long way toward preventing nasty bites, spiritual attacks, hauntings and, most of all, curses.
Seriously, just apologize already.
And do you really want to doom your family line to centuries of misery? I’ve seen it happen plenty of times in film.
I’m not sure an apology can fix this, but it sure as hell can’t hurt.
In fact, you might find that your elders have a lot of good advice–about what to do when you’re cursed to wander the world as more beast than man, for instance.
Listen to what she says and do not piss her off.

So be polite, be respectful and if you make a mistake, for God’s sake, apologize. Now have a nice time at Witching & Bitching, dears.
