Jumping to conclusions can cause a little embarrassment
EVERYONE seems to be in such a hurry to scream "racism" these days.
I overheard this while I shopping on the weekend at West Ipswich.
The customer asked the young shop assistant, "In what aisle could I find the Guinness?"
Looking a little shocked she replied, "Are you Irish?"
The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am.
But let me ask you something, if I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?
Or if I asked for Polish sausage, would you ask if I was Polish?"
The shop assistant says, "No, I probably wouldn't."
The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Guinness, why did you ask me if I'm Irish?"
The clerk replied, "Because you're in Bunnings".
