Lady Medusa is giving me a hard time.

But for you? Why would I cry?

I thought that silly excahnge with MM was an evasive tactic, so I assumed you were about to cry.

You brought up being scared, so I assumed you were scared.
I thought you were a scared ****, but it turns out you are just a ****.

you mean 'asterisks'?

Not much of a private school, was it?

As for the asterisks, the point was to offend, so just go ahead and feel offended. I'm not going to spell it out for you.

I kid you not. I was floored. Left my mouth hanging open in shock.

I don't think I've ever heard an Emirati thank a Filipina worker before...

You know what's hilariously hilarious about all of this? If those youngsters were in America the Filipino would be above the Arab on the totem pole. Heres the pecking order here

Americans
Dutch
Swedes
Norwegians
Canadians
Jews
Australians
Germans
Italians
Irish
Japanese
English
Chinese
Mexicans
Filipinos
Africans
Arabs
French
Puerto Ricans

I must admit... it's a funny game and once that is occasionally played by the Millhouses.

I have no problem with them but they are not well thought of here...I think it's because they did'nt let our long range bombers fly over their country on the way to bomb another country once- and people here are still holding a grudge over it.

The French are arrogant arseholes who only take some of their stances to piss off the Americans or other powers.

One still sees freedom fries on certain menus in the US, particularly the more rural areas.
