Note: I’m an obviously caucasian girl from Jamaica born to British parents, and have been taking a year off to travel around America. I’m fully aware that I speak in mainly Patois, and try to tone it down somewhat, as some people occaisionally become offended, thinking that I’m taking the mickey when it’s my natural accent.

Me: That’ll be seventeen dollars, then.

Customer: How dare you!

Customer: HOW DOES SHE LIKE IT? MY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN REPRESSED FOR A THOUSAND YEARS-FIRE THAT BITCH.
