The stupidest comment I've heard in my life

This afternoon, I was walking down the street and passed three construction workers. One of them said hi to me, and I said hi back to him. The second one looked at me for a few seconds, then smiled and said, "Pretty Mexican." "Indian. I'm half Indian," I corrected. The third guy chuckled and said, "You Indian, me cowboy!"
I may love some of my students dearly, but there is no way in hell I am staying in Mississippi after this school year ends. I believe this anecdote sums up why I feel this way. Six more months and I can go back to New England.
