    Default Racism

    Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days...

    A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Guinness?"

    The shop assistant asks, "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 Bunning’s....“

    Hmmm. A few years ago I went to a Japanese hardware store, sort of a local equivalent of the big green shed. At the entrance they had a beer dispensing machine.
    There are lots of things we could learn from the Japanese.

    I was on the Big Island of Hawaii. SWMBO insisted on stopping at this tourist trap for souvenirs. It was probably about 11 AM. There was a Japanese gentleman, probably about 20 years younger than I. With him he had an infant in a car seat and a toddler was running amuck as toddlers normally do.

    He was really struggling to feed the infant and control the toddler. I bought two cans of beer and walked over toward him. At about 3 M distant, I did a courtesy bow. He, in a total panic stood up and reciprocated. I sat down next to him and gave him one of the beers. He spoke no English and I speak no Japanese. For 15 or 20 minutes while sipping our beers we had the most delightful conversation. Then his wife showed up. She really started giving him a tongue lashing. He explained and then in English got into me for giving him a beer. About this time my wife showed up with her purchases and I said to the Japanese woman that he was distraught trying to manage both children and needed a beer to relax. My wife then said, "Come on we have to go." And later in the car I got an ear full about drinking beer before noon.

    When SWMBO said "I won't cook in metric."
    The metric system died in the US.

    My brother would never drink before noon.
    His favourite answer, if offered a beer was, "It must be afternoon, somewhere in the world!!!!"
