I totally forgot that there was a time in my life that I was "the girl form the East coast"
When I moved back to Minnesota in ‘98, I had lived on the East coast most of my life. Courtney (my middle school friend) commented on how I’ve grown to love Minnesota. I love Minnesota so much that I’ve forgotten there was a time when I hated living here.
He who must not be named (as a lady customer is walking out): She’s from Venezuela. Me: Oh yeah? Him: Yeah you didn’t see that big Brazilian butt? Me:
No. I’m not a butt girl, and those are two different countries. They speak different languages. Him (missing the point): You’re not a butt girl? Me: Nope…necks and collar bones. Him: Really? That’s weird. Me: Yeah well “to each their own” I guess…I’m gonna punch out now.
Today at work a Somali gentleman was looking into setting up an appointment
He had his wife along to translate, but every once in a while he would try to speak to me in English. His wife started laughing at him and teasing him. I asked if he was practicing his English on me, and she nodded. Anyway…I thought it was cute, and I appreciated his effort so I told him he was doing a good job.
Hmm, I wonder why check cashing places exist? Could it be that the poor disproportionately don’t have bank accounts and thus can be taken advantage of? Could it be that poor credit can get you rejected from a bank? Or hey, you might not have bank activity if you, say, have overdraft fees piling on, especially if you bank with a place with continuous overdraft fees.
This is disgusting and Scott Walker should step off his pile of money long enough to be ashamed of himself.
no offense, but i found your responses to "john" kind of embarrassing. his arguments are so clearly flawed. why insult his "small dick" if they can easily be argued against? i'm gay and obviously i find john's opinions deeply hurtful. but the johns of the u.s. are also generally uneducated and unaware. their hate is often unconscious, which is, of course, no less hurtful. but rather than targeting him as a person, why not target his ridiculous opinions more rather than simply using "right wing" as a pejorative or referencing his penis? and please learn how to spell atheist.
Yeah well like I said I lost my temper. I was tired, coming down with something, and I had had it with him responding to my FACTS with nonsense. As for the typo, when I get hot headed I’m less likely to see my mistakes. Sorry I embarrassed you, anon, but I’m only human.
Pro tip: never start off a comment with “no offense” because that’s what you’re going to do regardless.
