I was at Wal-Mart today picking up a few things. It generally feels like the inside of an oven in Wal-Mart (at least at mine) since they had the heat up so high. So I took my jacket off exposing my peice which is legal to do in PA.
I was walking around browsing at some things I needed to get when a soccer mom looking lady came around the corner with her cart sporting a "Million Moms March" sweater

You would have been better off to say "Hello" in your most polite and respectful voice you could muster, and maybe wish her "Have a good holiday season." while you step to the side and yield to her to pass by.
Every little bit helps.
