After Kevin made an innocent joke about Ohioans:
Me: “No more Ohio jokes. I’m done with those. It’s a little disheartening to move to another part of the country and realize that everyone thinks the state you’re from is total crap.”
Kevin: “People don’t think that.”
Me: “Sure they do! It’s not like Arizona has some stereotype where whenever you say you’re from Arizona people go, ‘Ohhhh, Arizona, ha, ha.’ ”
Stunned silence from Kevin.
Kevin: “Are you kidding me?”
Me: “Yeah, I guess you guys are pretty racist.”
