Even on my days off...

So today I'm running errands before we leave for our family trip to London. I take my daughter to the orthodontist to recheck her retainer.

The tech, making small talk, asks my daughter if she had any plans for the summer.
"We're going to England tomorrow."
"Really? So do you speak the language?"

That's right up there with the time when I was at the chain pharmacy store, signing up for their store card. The clerk hands me the paper, stops herself, flips the paper over, and says "You probably wanted the side in English words, not Mexican words."

Yes, these people breed. As you well know.

Anytime I've been to Hawaii or Alaska I inevitably find myself in line at a store or restaurant, behind some idiot asking if they take American money.

I may say something like this to a child but as a joke. Perhaps, the tech was joking?
