Taking The I Out Of Identity

| Lima, OH, USA | Uncategorized

(I am at the front door at my store greeting customers when a customer comes in. I remember helping him activate a warranty
replacement phone I ordered for him the previous week. Keep in mind that I am a white guy.)

Customer: “Is that black guy here today?”

Me: “You know his name?”

Customer: “Is [my name] here?”

Me: “That’s me.”

Customer: “You sure?”

Me: “Uh, yes.”

Customer: “Huh. You sure that’s you?”

Me: “Yes, sir. I check every morning.”
