My multiculturalism, let me show you it! Conversation in my office:
Boss (who is from Australia): Would you like a crumpet?
Me: What the hell is a crumpet? Oh, those English muffin-looking things. I’ve seen them at Trader Joe’s.
Boss: Those aren’t crumpets.
Me: Yes they are! It says so on the package.
Boss: Biscuit, then. Do you want a biscuit? ::offers::
Me: COOKIE. COOKIE, DAMMIT. SPEAK AMERICAN.
(I’m not really like this. Was just feeling silly today. He laughed.)
I’m going to miss this job.
