In today's episode of "White People Trying Too Hard"
Customer (nice-enough young white guy): Could you help me find a book by David Hair?
Me: Sure. David...?
Customer: Yeah. David as in, well, David. And Hair as in "Gurl yo' hair looks good." *nervous chuckle*
Me: *keeps eyes averted, typing away, pretending I hadn't heard that*
Y'all. My vanilla brothers and sisters. I don't know who's been giving you misinformation, but I promise you, PROMISE you that you don't have to try so hard. Maybe you mean well, but it only makes things awkward for the both of us. If you just talk to us like regular people, we will understand.
