El Dumbass

This afternoon, The Beloved and The Offspring stopped by the neighborhood sub shop for a quick bite between Saturday errands. As they were finishing their $5 foot-longs (my baby loves a cheap foot long) a fortyish white guy emerged from the, um, facilities.

He addressed the young Hispanic man working behind the counter: “La Cabanyo no es working. It’s full.”

To which the young man replied, “I can’t understand what you’re saying. Could you speak English?”

Brilliant. I hope everyone gave the young man a standing ovation for not putting up with such nonsense.

I want to see this in a movie or sitcom script . . . because no one would think it anyone would be really that stupid. ~Annie K
