oh I wish, I had stayed up to watch Aziz Ansari host SNL!! That would have been the icing on the cake!!! Represented us well! ;)



"You got to go back to pretending...sorry we never thanked you for your service!" LOL....

"Trump won, go back to Africa! Trump won, go back to Mexico! Trump won, go back to... where you came from!"

oh been there. I have been guessed for Ethiopian, the Carribean, Trinidad Tobago, Mexico, Middle East... so there have been occasions where I have to ask them to clarify why they are upset and which group they think I belong to! sigh. Which is hard to do because often they are angry in that moment. And all they get is usually a quiet, baffled face. And a slow lightbulb going off when I figure where their guess is and I so want to point it out that I am from India. But then I am afraid that they might remember that we took all the call center jobs but then also I haven't lived in India either for 30 years now (and in my head head, I am losing it that I have been on this planet for over 30 years???!!!!)...by then usually they have moved on because they didn't get any reaction from me.

Hey, sometimes you have to just laugh. Because what else do you have?!

Brilliant, Ansari. "Change doesn't come from Presidents. Change comes from angry people!"

So true.
