sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo i was just called a coon.
yo fuck this
i was on the bus today and i accidentally threw my money all over the driver and instead of being a normal human being and saying oh i’m sorry i...
if fucking wouldn’t
OK so I completely had one of those brain flashback “OH MY GOD I FORGOT ABOUT THAT MEMORY” moments today because I was plugging in my old iPod video for the first time in like two years
But anyways so like this one time I was on this 16 hour flight from like San Francisco to Manila and like right before the flight was supposed to take off the flight attendants went down the aisle doing the whole “please turn off all electronics” spiel like yes, you knew you had to turn that iPod off for takeoff why the fuck did you boot up your computer thing.
And anyways like two rows ahead of me there was this really fucking white couple who were like in their 50s and like they had their iPod all lit up RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEIR UN-STOWED TRAY TABLE and the asian flight attendant was all like “Sir, Madam, I’m going to have to ask you to put that away.” And the woman was LITERALLY LIKE I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP, SHE WENT “OH, IT’S AN IPOD THERE IS NO OFF BUTTON. YOU HAVE TO LET IT JUST SIT THERE.”
And the flight attendant was just silent for a moment and went “I’m sorry, ma’am, but you really have to turn that off, and stow the tray table.”
And the MAN went, I SHIT YOU NOT, “It’s an iPod. There’s no OFF button. You have to let it sit there and turn off by itself. If I touch it, it won’t turn off.”
At which point every single asian passenger in that plane gave them the side-eye. Of which, by the way, there were tons, since this was San Fran to Manila flight.
At which point the flight attendant literally just shook her head, and went “well at least stow the tray table. We have to take off. I don’t care, just stow it.”
And when she walked away, the woman went, VERY LOUDLY LIKE SHE WANTED SYMPATHY, “OH MY GOD, IT DOESN’T TURN OFF WHY IS SHE SUCH A BITCH THERE IS NO NEED TO BE THAT CONDESCENDING.”
Moral of the story: white people can never turn shit off and stow it when they need to.
