A Whole New State Of Understanding

| PA, USA | Right | June 10, 2014

(I’m currently having a conversation with a little girl, about kindergarten age, while I do her nails.)

Little Girl: “You know, I’ve never been to the United States of America.”

Me: “Wait, what?”

Little Girl: “I’ve never been to the States. I wonder what it’s like there?”

Me: “You live in the United States, hun.”

Little Girl: “I do?”

Me: “Yes! You sure do!”

Little Girl: “Wow, I thought I lived in the city!”

A Sad Sign Of The Times

| Houston, TX, USA | Right | June 10, 2014

(I walk into the local shipping store to drop off a package. There is a senior couple in front of me. I overheard the last part of the conversation between the wife and the employee.)

Wife: “So, you’re telling me that this store doesn’t have that promotion?”

Employee: “No, I’m sorry. We’re privately owned, so we’re not carrying out the promotion.”

Wife: “Well, you should have signs here telling me that!”

Employee: “Yeah, I’m sorry…”

Wife: *walks towards the exit while her husband slowly follows her behind him* “This is the seventh store I’ve been to that doesn’t have the promotion. Liars. They’re all LIARS! Just like OBAMA! He’s a LIAR! OBAMA! LIAR!”

Husband: *looks at me and shrugs, embarrassed*

Needed To Do A Double Take

| Portland, OR, USA | Right | June 9, 2014

(I am an African American female who wears her hair in twists. A coworker of mine, who is also African-American and wears her hair in twists, comes downstairs from the ambulatory surgery unit.)

Coworker: “Did you know we were twins?”

Me: “Nope.”

(She is at least six inches taller and forty pounds lighter than I am, and 20 years my senior.)

Coworker: “Yep. This man says to me, ‘boy, you sure must get around.’ I say, ‘really?’ He says, ‘yeah, you were just at the x-ray desk.’ Then his wife says, ‘you bonehead; clearly there are two of THEM.’ Then he says, ‘well, then, they must be twins.'”

(To this day, we greet each other as, ‘hey twin sista!’)
