OH MY GOD. OK SO.
An old man came into work today and he had called in a pizza for pick up, so I asked him his name, and he enunciated his order with a smile and said, “It’s for Donald. D-o-n-a-l-d.” And I went and got him his pizza and rang him up, and THEN. AND THEN HE SAID.
"So where are you from?"
My supervisor and co workers just looked at me like “O_O”
"I… uh, I was born here. In America”
"Oh. You don’t look like it!" And he smiled and laughed.
AND THEN. THEN HE SAID
"I’m sure you’re from here" and turned away smiling.
I gave a slight laugh and watched my supervisor’s jaw drop.
That was the first ever racial remark/profiling that I’d felt offended about, but now I’m ok. It was a little funny.
I should have told him I was from Texas or Oklahoma XD
OR OR “I WAS BORN IN MURIKA DA RAND OF DA FREE” XDDD
