So today like other days I took the bus to go to school and I over heard this conversation between two girls.
“So where are you from” one of the girls asked asked. She had afro hair and was wearing a school uniform but she looked at a little older than the other girl she asked.
“I’m from here (England). ” she replied with one eyebrow raised looking at her friend with that face (are you trying to imply something)
“Oh-” The older looking girl face kind of dropped at this point and she looked at her phone.
“Well.. Were are your parents from then?”
See that question right there got me thinking about the rest of the conversation.
For some reason I hear this conversation alot and I have had it alot. Especially when people begin to guess where I’m from. “Oh uh are you from….”
“You do not inherit your parents nationality, you inherit part of their DNA.I don’t need to be hearing my mom is quarter bla bla bla and grand ma is ectra. No. I really don’t give a shit. Your are born in x country thus your nationality is x. And that is all that matters unless your entire medical history is needed and the doctors need that info, because you might have a life threatening illness.”
So yeah that happened on the bus. It is a common conversation believe
me it really is.
So yeah I was on the bus today like everyday. Fun stuff real fun stuff happening on that bus.
So how was your day like today? Did you also listen in on someone’s conversation while you should have been reading the book that was placed on your lap? (Hahaha) Or do block it all out with high quality noise cancelling headphones?
I’m curious… Anyway reader enjoy
