    A Dark Day For Political Correctness

    | St. Paul, MN, USA | Top

    (Keep in mind that I’m wearing a black shirt.)

    Customer: “I have a question. Can you help me?”

    Me: “I’ll try, ma’am.”

    Customer: “Well, do you carry any construction paper?”

    Me: “Yes, we do. It is right this way, if you would follow me.”

    (We walk to the aisle.)

    Customer: “Do you have any dark paper, though?”

    Me: “Yes, we do. What color of dark paper are you looking for?”

    (The customer looks at me like I’m a moron.)

    Customer: “Dark paper! Like your shirt!”

    Me: “Oh, you mean black.”

    Customer: *gasps* “I’m sorry, but I can not believe you would say that! I feel that word is just so offensive to the colored community!”

    (The customer storms out of the building, muttering about racists. The customer is white.)
