Recently I have been able to get coffee in the morning from the coffee shop in downtown Norwood, it's super cute and the coffee is really good. They have yummy looking scones and muffins but I haven't tried any of those yet. Damn weight watchers, damn metabolism.
So this morning I walked in and ordered a large and there were 2 women further down the counter who were talking to the guy who works there; not sure what his deal is but his nose looks like a potato. The women were dressed alike (black pants, white shirts, flats) and both of them had brown hair cut into a bob. At first glance I thought they were twins in their 40s who still dressed alike, no much worse. One of them was talking to the potato guy and says: "I have a really racist joke, wanna hear it?" Ummm...what? It's not even 7am yet on a Tuesday and the coffee shop in Norwood is where you think it's fun to tell a racist joke? Really? Potato guy had a look on his face, and KKK lady said: "Oh will you get offended?", the girl ringing me up said: "I will get offended in all honesty" and the KKK lady's friend was said: "I think this one will too" pointing at me.
Yea...ummmmm here's the thing, that's not cool. If she had said something racist I can predict I wouldn't be able to not say something and then perhaps my morning coffee place would have to change because I would have a bad taste in my mouth any time I walked in there, afraid I might bump into a Nazi. Especially in today's world, where 2 men, well really they were boys, who were arrested yesterday for planning to go on a killing spree that would end up trying to kill Obama. Not that I am saying that lady is anything like that, and you can think anything you want about anyone, that's your right but don't make comments like that in a public place loudly enough for other people to hear. And if you do, expect some reaction and it won't be good. Keep your hateful thoughts in your own home and hopefully not pass them onto your children.
