So my wonderful husband, Dane_In_LA, just got home from work and told me he had a terrible day that started with him being rear-ended on the way into the office this morning. For the moment, he's fine, but she hit him hard enough that things went flying in the car (CDs off the seat and such), so he's going to have to look out for stiffness to possibly settle in.

But I digress. He and the woman who hit him get out of their respective vehicles and exchange insurance information, though she initially refused to actually show him her driver license and insurance card, but just wanted to hand him a piece of paper with whatever information she wrote on it, which, for all he knew may have been inaccurate. He was more than polite to her (the man has no temper -- even I can't get him riled up ).

But as he spoke, she noticed that he has an accent, so she asked him where he was from and he told her he was from Denmark. And that's when things go completely off the rails.

"I'd like to see your Green Card,"
she said.

What?

The?

FLICK???

Just where in the bloody hell does she think she is, Nazi Germany? Or perhaps Arizona, since that's the kind of attitude that hate-filled laws like Jan Brewer enacts engenders in society.

Screw her and the horse she rode in on. "I'd like to see your Green Card." As if.

No, he just calmly finished exchanging information, thanked her, got in the car and drove away. I'm telling you, he is unrufflable.

Anyone who's read my posts here should know how lucky that woman was that I wasn't in the car with him, though!

Now that's disturbing.

"she initially refused to actually show him her driver license and insurance card, but just wanted to hand him a piece of paper with whatever information she wrote on it, which, for all he knew may have been inaccurate" -- and a sneak, too!

"Jan Brewer's America", exactly.

This was in California, not Arizona, and her husband is from Denmark, not Mexico.

A democrat? Bite your tongue! My husband's one of those evil European Socialists.

But you're right, we'll always have each other, Donn. Thank you so much for your kind comfort.
