Until today, I didn’t know that I was a racist.
See, I got this call where this woman asked if I would participate in a telephone survey. I said that I really didn’t have the time, but she was persistant. She told me that it wouldn’t take much time at all and would really help her out as she had a quota.
“All I gotta do is axe you 10 questions” She said
“ASK” I replied.
“What” she said
“ASK. Ay Ess Kay”. I replied. “Not axe….An axe is what you chop trees down with…You can’t axe a question. You ASK them”.
She got silent for a minute, then another voice came on the line. Her supervisor.
Who told me that my “Mocking” of the first girls use of words was racist.
I hung up .
Apparently I am supposed to feel bad. Or something.
