Kevin Smith Like Page April 102016 I am a profiling asshole Here's how I know yesterday I was traveling to #iowacity with a layover at the sprawling #Dallas airport I had an hour to kill before my next light sol rolled up on a crowded @pappasitos and asked for a table for one The hostess seated me next to an older couple who quietly sat across from one another Based on nothing more than a one second observation I clocked them as a pair of white hairs who'd been married so long that they'd run out of shit to talk to each other about while eating at a restaurant I ordered fajitas and put in my earbuds checking emails and listening to #digitalunderground until the food arrived Then as I was about to eat I felt a tap on my arm I pulled my earbuds out to hear the older man say Mr Smith I hate to bother you but can I get a picture? was gobsmacked Here I was reducing these folks to a stereotype but they were only being quiet because they were like Holy shit it's Silent Bob We talked all through our meals and I learned that Marty & Patti Hansen of #Oklahoma knew a good deal of my work turned onto it by their son They were such lovely folks that when the check came I thought I'm gonna rock their tiny white-haired world by paying for their meal But no check came for me because THEY bought MY meal I was double gobsmacked then gobsmacked a third time when I realized that even after l'd met and spoke with the Hansens I was still profiling these fine folks by assuming l'd impress them if I picked up their tab But in the end Marty & Patty made an impression on me as well as reminded me not to judge any book by the cover Plus free #fajtas! #Kevin Smith Kevin Smith aka Silent Bob teaches us not to judge a book by its cover Meme
