Call Me MR OR MISS OR MS. - take your pick! And do not forget PLEASE! Corey Morgan! Straight Outa Cosplay

I was in a line waiting for my charge, a 7 year old to get face painted like a girl HERO by a hero guy painter named Corey, excuse me I mean Mr. Corey. I had a ringside seat for an encounter with him and a parent and child ahead of me and my charge.


Parent: Honey, tell Corey you want Spiderman!
Child: Corey, I want Spiderman!
Corey: Just a minute, son, do we work together?
Child: No
Corey: Are you over 21 years old?
Child: No
Corey: Do I owe you money?
Child : No
Corey: Then I am Mr. Corey
Child: I want Spiderman Mr. Corey
Corey...........................
Child: Please may I please have Spiderman Mr. Corey?

Corey Morgan gave an interesting lesson about how in the past many members of society did not get the respect they deserved - for example African Americans - people were able to call them "boy and girl" etc - an inexcusable part of the past. Corey Morgan's child entertainment co is located in the Maryland area.

PS: I am glad i was forearmed - Of COURSE my charge says please and thank you but she learned a good lesson and certainly called him Mr. Cory, but my charge is a very brilliant kid!

This is Anonymous valued view without the R-related words -- Uncalled for smart alecks on Mr Jerks part. I would have walked away with my charge as we do not need service from a jerk. The "do I work for you question" for the child is an attempt to humiliate the kid. All he had to say is "I am Mr. Corey. This was really over the top

I agree with anonymous. People like him frame it as "teaching kids to respect their elders" but there are a million polite ways to request manners without being a jerk. (Also, I HATE HATE HATE being called "Miss" as its an archaic labeling term dependent on a woman's marital status, and if a child calls me "miss" I just calmly and happily say "Oh, I'm just [myname], I don't like being called miss!" And the kid usually giggles (cuz haven't we all been called something we hated???) and nobody's feelings are hurt or made to feel small.

I am ALL FOR teaching kids manners. My NKs know there will be consequences if they do not say please and thank you. When I am with their friends etc and I do not get a "Please" "thank you" I will say in a sing songy voice to their friends, " NOW - what do we say?" and then " OK, now what do we say?" and yeah, I have had other parents look at me annoyed because their kids have to be reminded to be polite. I'm a jerk, - Please tell a friend! Thank you!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
