One of Those Days...
It was one of those days where EVERYTHING WENT WRONG!!!!
To cope I decide to go to Starbucks (yes i know-lol) and see some old friends and get away...
My luck- the new girl walks up to take my order (sigh). I didnt catch her name but she is your average blond blue eyed soroity sister (more like Brittney off of the MTV show Daria). Being her overly-exaggerated, bubbly & friendly self,she decides to engage in a little small talk while she is making my drink. Everythings ok until she asks that question in that certain way:
Where are you from???
-well for those of you who aren't aware, I was born in Texas and I have lived here for the 21 years I have been on this earth...-
My response? " i live a few blocks away from here."
She looks at me and says..."no you dont look like you are from this side of the world...i mean you are white, but not...you know what i mean? You dont look like me...where are you really from?"
How do you respond to such blatant ignorant stupidity??? What amazes me is that this girl represents a great majority of the people in this country...did she not realize that America is only a couple hundred years old and her ancestors are not "from this side of the world"?
I took my drink and left...some people are just not worth your time.
