I don't see this shit ever ending - something else weird always happens!
I'll migrate it across as soon as I get the time.
But it is a shame this one shall be lost - a lot of quality stories in here.

One of my favourites has to be this one from Iron Panda back in 2012:

I was working in a county jail for a time in one of the worst housing units in the facility. Everyone was locked in for the night and was just waiting for my relief. One new inmate started yelling and cursing at me through an open broken food port. I know a little bit but caught some really choice words. I ignored him yet he persisted. Tired of his rant, his bunkie, who was familiar with me, said to him, to paraphrase: "He don't understand you. He's not Spanish, He's Chinese. Just look at his eyes."

The Hispanic inmate needless to say was confused as all hell, replied back, "But look at his name.", pointing at my name badge. Now, as a Filipino, I kinda look Hispanic and Asian at the same time and to throw things off, I have a Spanish surname.

His bunkie replied back, "Nah man, he's adopted." Needless to say, the former apologized not because he had mistaken me, but because I was adopted.

Well there's an effort to preserve the old conversion thread.

 

Perhaps we should take it upon ourselves to preserve this one?
