Never Card-Bored

| IN, USA | Announcements

(Due to my grandmother’s recent passing, all my uncles are home. One uncle and aunt are staying with my parents and I have gone over with my children, aged four and six, to visit.)

Mom: “Hey, you want to play with these?” *gives the kids some cardboard tubes from paper towels*

(The kids proceed to use the tubes making noises, spyglasses, sword fights, etc.)

Uncle: *drinking a beer* “Man, I wish I could have that much fun with cardboard tubes.”

Me: “Keep drinking!”

Indian, Pakistani, It’s All Greek To Her

| Chicago, IL, USA | Announcements

(I am an observer walking directly behind this conversation, which takes place outside of a gym with a pool. A mother walks out with her two daughters. The daughters are holding towels to towel off after swimming. The older daughter wraps her towel around her like a toga.)

Daughter: “Look, Mom, isn’t this toga pretty?”

Mother: *in a disgusted voice* “How can anything Indian be pretty?”

Daughter: “Mom! A toga isn’t even Indian.”

Mother: “Fine. Pakistani!”

Daughter: *jaw drops* “It’s what men wore in ANCIENT ROME AND GREECE.” *mumbling* “Why are you so ignorant and racist?”
