Plus It's Totally Racist That They Mark Stuff Wrong in Red.

Tall boy: So, I had some really stupid question in school, and it was like, 'how did the Indians feel about the British?'
Emo girl: You're not a fricken mind reader! How are you supposed to know?
Tall boy: Yeah, right? They could be feeling hungry or tired or thinking that the British wear lame outfits…
Emo girl: Just write that. They can't mark it wrong, because I'm pretty sure they don't read minds either.

Strangely, This Was the Least Crappy Day John's Had in Weeks.

Young Hispanic man: Yo, man, you got some bird shit or something on you.
Big white man: Really? Shit, I always get crapped on.
Young Hispanic man: Lemme help you out. (proceeds to scrape bird poo off his coat)
Big white man, a few minutes later: You know what I love about Hispanic people, they care about family. White people have no sense of family!
Young Hispanic man: Yeah, but that's because we're not responsible enough to move out, white people are responsible enough to live on their own.
Big white man: But we have no sense of family! You have sense of family! White people don't care about family! I would know… I'm white! And I live alone and am bored all the time!
(line finally moves forward)
Young Hispanic man
: Nice to meet you!

Big white man: You too! Have a great day!
