Speaking of Misconceptions About Africa
Me: I live in Tanzania in East Africa and I have discovered some ATM fraud with my bank account which I’d like to report.
Service Rep: (With VERY strong southern accent) Now tell me, is it just beautiful over there?
Me: Parts of it sure are.
Service Rep: My mother-in-law has been trying to convince me to go over there to visit with her. She says she wants to run naked with the natives, but I told her that I’m not so comfortable with the idea of being naked with natives.
Me: Uh…I don’t think you’ll find people running naked these days. In fact, they are probably better dressed than you.
Service Rep: (Confused hesitation) Well… my mother-in-law died a few months ago anyway.
Me: Well good. Then perhaps I can report the ATM fraud?
