(Lunch is being served. There are two choices of chips: regular or barbecue.)

Lunch Lady: Do you want regular or plain?

(We all lost it.)

(At the end of the school year at my school, we have an awards assembly for the 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. My school is pretty small, so there’s only about 180 kids and parents, teachers, etc. After most of the awards are announced, the principal comes up to the podium. Note: It’s the middle of summer and VERY hot in the auditorium of our school)

PRINCIPAL: And, we have one final award! Will everyone please stand up for the award of distinction!

(Everyone stands up)

PRINCIPAL: Now, everyone but [6 Girls’ Names] please sit down.

(The girls are pretty happy, because they think they’re getting an award)

PRINCIPAL: Now these girls will not be receiving any awards today because the shorts they are wearing are distinctly too short, and are inappropriate for a school environment.

(Most of the girls are in tears now, and the principal tells them to sit down. After the assembly, the parents of the girls complain to CPS. The story ends up on the news, and the principal, who has been the principal there for almost 30 years, was almost fired. Long story short, that never happened again!)

There was a water main break and boil water order in effect by the Health Department. This was for the entire area of the city, not just our location. A person ordered their food and I asked if they wanted a drink. We were only offering canned drinks, and the fountain was off. The lady demanded a cup of water. I explained that she could only get bottled water, and we could not serve cups of water. She became angry and demanded a cup of water. Fine, if you want to drink other people’s sewage, be my guest.

(It is our school’s eighth-grade trip to Chicago. The hotel rooms are big, so there are four students of the same gender to each room. I am with my best friend and two other friends, all male. We have a plan set as to when to wake up and get ready, and everyone agrees to the plan. It is the day we were supposed to go home, we wake up late because the alarm didn’t go off; the bus is leaving in 15 minutes. We are getting ready while figuring out why we’re late.)

Best Friend: “The alarm is unplugged, that’s why it didn’t go off. Who the h*** unplugged it?”

Friend #1: “The snooze button didn’t work and it wouldn’t turn off so I unplugged it.”

Friend #2: “The alarm was supposed to wake us up two hours ago so we could get ready and talk before we left!”

Friend #1: “I wanted to sleep in though.”

Me: “But we didn’t. You could’ve woken us up and go back to sleep.”

Friend #2: “Exactly. It doesn’t have to be all about you, a**-hole.”

Friend #1: “Oh. Maybe you should’ve told me to wake you up if the alarm went off.”

Me & Best Friend: “We did last night!’

Friend #2: “F****** idiot.”

(I am six years old, and I have no concept of racism yet (I’m white), and I easily forget parts of things I’m told. I’m outside playing and looking mischeviously at a puddle with some moss in it when my mother sees me.)

Mom: Don’t touch that puddle!

Me: Aw… why?

Mom: There could be chiggers in the moss.

Me: What are those?

Mom: Little… things you can’t see, but they make you itchy.

Me: Oh, okay.

(Later, my best friend and her sister come over – they’re half African-American, half Hispanic, and being around the same age as me, they head straight for the puddle.)

Me: No! Wait! You can’t!

Best friend: Why not?

Me: *trying to remember* Uh… my mom said there were invisible itchy things in there called n******.

Best friend: Oh really? But if we can’t see them they could be here now!

Me: Let’s run!

(We run around screaming, which naturally attracts my mother’s attention.)

Mom: What are you all screaming about?

Me: Can’t talk now mom! I’m running away from the n******!

(My mother had a talk with me shortly thereafter. )
