Bigotry Is Impatient

, , , , , | Friendly | September 11, 2017

(I live an a pretty diverse neighborhood. I have just gotten into the line at the DMV, when a woman gets in line behind me. We are the only two white people in the short line, which we will get through within five minutes.)

Her: *whispering to me* “Don’t you just wish that immigration control would storm in and shorten this line up for us?”

(I turn to see her smiling at me, waiting for me to respond in agreement.)

Me: “I’m not too concerned about how long the line is. I’m just bothered I have to deal with a racist old bag while I wait.”

(She scoffed and looked away. She spent the remainder of the wait muttering to herself about how she would have to pay for all the insurance for THOSE people, and that they were just going to end up running over white kids.)

In A Bothersome Spot

, , , , | Friendly | September 5, 2017

(I am at the DMV to renew my driver’s license… and it is MOBBED. There is a line of roughly 20 cars circling round-and-round the lot looking for a space to park. There is one car parked to the side with the four-way flashers on. I pass her several times, as does everyone else in line. When a spot opens up, I take it. I get out, and she pulls up.)

Driver: “Didn’t you see me?! I was waiting for a spot!”

Me: “We were all waiting for a spot. You were parked off to the side.”

Driver: “Well, that’s my spot!”

Me: “Sorry.” *casually walks inside*

(I was not sorry. When you see 20 other cars in a line, circling a parking lot, looking and waiting for a space to open up… you get in line and hope for the best. You don’t park off to the side and assume someone’s going to say, “Oh…that lady back there…maybe she was waiting for a spot. I’ll just go ahead and leave it for her.”)

Their Stupidity To Be Given No Quarter

| KS, USA | Working | July 9, 2017

(I’m at the Department of Motor Vehicles renewing my driver’s license when this occurs.)

DMV Employee #1: “Okay, so that’ll be $16, and you can pay by cash or check.”

(A door opens and a second DMV employee leans their head out.)

DMV Employee #2: “[DMV Employee #1], if I have 180 quarters, how many dollars is that?”

DMV Employee: #1: *speechless*

Me: *speechless*

DMV Employee #2: “I mean, like, do you times it by four?”

DMV Employee #1: *speechless*

Me: “45 dollars. It’s… 45 dollars.”

DMV Employee #2: “Oh, okay.” *exits*

Me: “Was that for real?”

DMV Employee #1: “Unfortunately… yes.”

Me: “Oh, jeez, I’m sorry.”

DMV Employee #1: “It’s even worse… That’s the manager!”
