pazu: jack you up

I had one of the worst experiences of my life today.

I was walking in Essex (dearly beloved Essex). Rainham, to be exact, to get to the Havering Riverside Walk by the Thames. I passed a bus stop at which a chav-tastic teenager was loudly making an ass of herself. I glanced her way, as one is apt to do when people insist upon advertising their idiocy.

She looked at me, put her hands to her face and pulled her eyes into slants - you know what I'm talking about - and shouted in what she must have thought was a convincing parody of a Chinese accent, "What are you lookeeng at, haa?"

She thought this was so clever that she repeated it to me several times as I walked away without looking back.

I have never had anyone be this blatantly racist at me in my life.
