Don't you mean true? It really is unfortunate, that so many stereo types are not based on any particular -ism but anecdotal observations from our daily life. Being behind another person in the ATM is an exercise in frustration as you watch the individual perform many actions completely unrelated to the task at hand, completely oblivious to the line. To add insult to injury I am surprised I haven't been in an accident an ATM, my bank has a drive through with two ATM machines, thus two lines. I am not even surprised any more at how many people accelerate without looking and then honk at me for being in "their" way causing "them" to slam on the brakes.
There was a point not long ago where everything was racist. Probably had something to do with Obama getting elected, I can't recall but if you said anything bad about anyone people would say your racist. It's just a joke. I'm surprised people didn't see that.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
