So we got this sale on mangoes and limes and tomatoes, right? And we totally sell out of them because it's like a quarter for a mango, seven cents per lime, and forty seven cents a pound of tomatoes. Fucking crazy good deal. 

We sell every Goddamn one of them, and throughout all of today people kept on asking me if we had any more. And throughout an 8-hour shift, all but one of them was Mexican and spoke very little English.

Now an asshole like, oh, say, my boss, could say that it's just the 'fuckin' cheap beaners that want the deal.' But instead I could hit the first link Google presents me and oh hey look at that, maybe instead of being a racist and blaming the mexicans for being cheap I could just note that maybe they're cheap because THEY DON'T HAVE ANY FUCKING MONEY!

It's good to know that when it comes down to it you can always trust people to get angry at people for doing what they have to to get by with life shitting on them because they had the misfortune to not be born white and upper class.
