You would not believe what someone said to me today. This isn't just the quote of the day; in fact, despite there still being two days left of the show I'm going to go ahead and give it quote of the show standing.
Me: "Can I answer a question for you, sir?"
A$$hole: "Uh yeah, I was just wonderin' how I can Jew you down on the price of this car."
Me: *blink* "Excuse me?" (Praying I heard him wrong...)
A$$hole: "Yeah, how can I Jew you down on the price of this car?"
Me: "Did you seriously just say that to me?"
I threw him a disgusted look, walked away and refused to interact with him at all for the rest of his visit.
The best (meaning worst) part was that he was a black man. Can you imagine if I had come back with a certain racially-charged synonym for "cheap"? He would have justifiably and rightfully thrown a fit. But apparently it is perfectly okay for him to slur another ethnic group, just as long as it is not his own.
The really sad thing is that I'm pretty sure he thought the reason I reacted the way I did was because I was offended by the thought of bargaining, not by his bigoted antisemitism. People like that just don't get it.
