I was at the Chinese restaurant around the corner, picking up take out for me and a coworker. I've been going to this place for over a decade, because the food is good and the people who own it are really nice. There aren't many places left where I can get lunch for under $5, and this is one of them.

Anyway, they were packed today. The woman in front of me in line was having some kind of language issue with the lady working the register. She turned to the waiting customers and said, loudly, "They need to learn to speaka de English". I said to her, "Well, it is a Chinese restaurant". She had nothing else to say.


What makes this not a bouncy (other than the fact that it really happened) is that the woman who made the insulting comment was black. No white DUmmie would ever talk back to a black woman, especially a tall woman wearing a Detroit Medical Center employee id.
