Social Commentary 5 (July 2008):
At the Greyhound bus station:
One “nigger” to another customer at the counter (making appropriate gestures)
“You have a great body, it would look even better on my phone.”
(Meaning he wanted to take a picture of her using his phone)
After whatever expression the lady gave him facially, he said laughing: “Just playing with you!”
Social Commentary 6:
“Know Pain” – the signboard of some clinic just on the outskirts of Richmond I believe. I suspect it’s run by some non-native english speakers (no offence meant – probably Asiatic). I wonder how much custom they get with that signboard – “Know Pain” – indeed!
