Got My Own Personal Trail Of Tears Over Here

Crazy old white lady trying on wedding veil: So I always wondered why I didn’t look good in these things…until 2004.
Disinterested customer: Oh?
Crazy old white lady: Yeah, then I found out I was part Native American. At least 5%.
Disinterested customer (confused): Oh…?
Crazy, old white lady: Yeah. That’s why I don’t look good in veils. Cause we Native Americans don’t wear them.
Disinterested customer: I got married in a courthouse.
Crazy old white lady: I hate to say it since I am part white, but damn those white people!

An Institution Worth Protecting

Obese middle-aged tourist to husband: I called him and told him we’re at passenger pick-up 2. He called and asked where we’d be, and I said passenger pick-up 2, that’s where he can find us. It’s just easier to find us when he gets here. Passenger pick-up 2. And it’s cold. That’s why I brought this vest. I brought this vest in case it got cold, and it got cold. I’m going to button it up. Did you hear me? I’m going to button it up. There, it’s buttoned. (husband ignores her)
