Peeved, Yet Again
I’ve blogged about this countless times before, but I’ll blog it again, simply because I want to let off some steam. Please, please, PLEASE don’t ask me where I’m from in order to pin down my ethnicity. And if you still want to find out my ethnicity, please do not be rude.
Me: “I’m looking for [insert name of the person I’m trying to find]. Have you seen him around?”
Lab tech: “Where are you from?”
To say the least, I was flabbergasted for about ten seconds. Where the hell had that question come from? And why wasn’t this person answering my question? I had asked first.
Eventually, I answered, “Here,” which obviously irritated the tech since it was such a smart ass answer, but at that moment, I was too pissed off to care.
