Girl comes up to the bar. She’s attractive in a non-conventional sort of way. She says, can I get my tab? I say, sure! What’s the first name on the tab? She tells me.
That is a strange name. It sounds like an exotic name for a kitchen utensil. Definitely not your average name.
I get her the card, start running it. I say, your name? What’s the origins of it? She says, it’s Eastern European. Croatian. I say, cool. It’s unique. She says, do you think you could get me a cup of water? I say, sure!
I get her the cup of water, give it to her, say, so…are you Croatian?
She says, almost angrily, WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?
She says it, as if, I had been stalking her, and knew this private information about her I shouldn’t know.
I say, um… You said your name was Croatian. I guess I was putting two and two together.
She says, oh.
Yeah, I’m Croatian.
