About two years ago I(female) went on a business trip to America. In some food court, a black guy tried to cut in front of me. I asked him to stand at the end of the line. He instantly took a deep breath and uttered very loudly and hysterically, "Is this all because I'm black ?!"
I myself am a non-conflict person and rather shy in front of aggressive people who are larger than me. But at that moment, without expecting from myself, I calmly issued:
"No. It's because I'm Russian," and with the wildest Russian accent added, "Do you have any problems?"
And silence reigned in the cafe. And the black man faded a little and left. I didn’t understand because of my fear of stereotypes about dangerous Russians or he didn’t know what to answer because of an error in the system.
P. s. The cashier was noticeably respectable with me)
P. s. s. Then all day I tried to understand where I got this last phrase from. And I remembered that it was in the speeches of the stand-up artist, he told how the Russian accent saved him in a critical situation) It really does, and I didn't think that all this Russian cranberry could ever come in handy in life. Thanks to American cinema for the images of Russians beaten off on their heads)
there doesn't seem to be anything here
