white stockings
Mar 31st, 2010 by micah the admin

I had just gotten dressed and was about to head out to go dancing with my friends.  I was wearing my favorite little black dress and felt like a million bucks.  My father complimented me, but remarked that he didn’t think white stockings really went with my black dress.

“Uh, Dad, I’m not wearing stockings.”

“Yes, you are,” he protested, thinking I must have put some on and forgotten about them.  “There’s no way you’re legs could be THAT white.”

Well, they could be.  I invested in some self-tanner shortly thereafter.

you're a racist b——
Feb 21st, 2010 by micah the admin

When I worked at Wal-Mart I was the under-paid angry customer problem solver. We had a policy saying that one could only use a check if that person’s name was on the check. This was obvious to me. Don’t let people use stolen checks. Our customers should have appreciated it. One of my cashiers called me over because she had an angry lady in front of her. I would usually give in to whatever crazy thing a customer wanted to insure they would come back, but we couldn’t budge on issues of potential fraud. I nicely explained to the lady the reason we couldn’t take the check. She said, “It’s my husband’s checkbook!” I said, “I’m sorry, ma’am. We do this to protect you and the rest of our customers.” She left in a huff to go get another method of payment. I forgot about it
I went to go goof off at the customer service area. I was laughing a lot and chatting with a friend of mine, who happened to be black. The lady came in all angry and approached me. She pointed in my face and yelled, “You’re a racist b——-, and you can f— off!” Then I realized that she must have been a really light skinned black person or perhaps was part Hispanic or Native American. I don’t know. I would have called her white and maybe, if asked, wonder about her grandparents’ ethnicity. I think my skin was darker. Either way, I was embarrassed.
