It’s Not That Commie-plicated

, , , , | Working | June 24, 2018

(My dad is Korean-American, and due to his job, he works with a lot of temporary or in-training employees. Because many of them are white, my dad experiences a lot of low-key racism. He doesn’t mind because a lot of it is due to ignorance rather than malice. He is training with a new temp on their first day.)

Temp: “So, you’re Chinese?”

Dad: “No, I’m Korean.”

Temp: “So, you’re a commie?”

Dad: “No, I just said I’m Korean. South Korean.”

Temp: “So, you’re a commie?”

(This went on for a good two weeks. My dad couldn’t bring himself to fire this guy and endured the stupid, long rants about communism. Eventually, it all came to a head one day when the temp realized the equipment my dad used was made in China. The temp went crazy and began viciously kicking and punching the equipment. The police were called and the temp was arrested, ultimately destroying over $5000 of equipment.)
