Bless Your Heart

Two informally dressed ladies happened to start up a conversation during an endless wait in the LAX airport.The
first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy
man.The second was a well
mannered elderly woman
from the South.When the conversation centered on whether they had any
children, the California woman started by saying, "When my first child
was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me."The lady from the
South commented, "Well, bless your heart."The first woman continued,
"When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful
Mercedes-Benz."Again, the lady from the South commented, "Well, bless
your heart."The first woman continued boasting, "Then, when my third
child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond
bracelet."Yet again, the Southern lady commented, "Well, bless your
heart."The first woman then asked her companion, "What did your husband
buy for you when you had your first child?""My husband sent me to charm
school," declared the Southern lady."Charm school?" the first woman
cried, "Oh, my God! What on earth for?"The Southern lady responded,
"Well for example, instead of saying, "Who gives a shit?" I learned to
say, "Well, bless your heart."

    More often than not, "Bless your heart" is used to preface a personal insult:

    "Bless her heart, but she sure has gotten fat."
