So I was at Wally World a while back with my 2 year old. Couldn't find something on my wife's list so I look for an employee to ask for help. Finally I find a guy and start walking over, as I start talking to the guy my daughter looks at me and says "Look Daddy, it's a monkey!!". My heart stopped, I looked for a small hole to crawl into or a rock to crawl under, my tongue froze and I was unable to speak. You guessed it........ He was black. As I'm trying to get my brain back in gear, and pull some sort of response out of my ass, I manage to mumble "Sssh, quiet honey adults are talking" As my heart kicks back into drive and my tongue thaws, I manage to say "Sorry sir, I'm just looking for the toilet paper". He smiles and says "Isle 4 about half way down on the right". At this point I'm wondering if I should try and explain this, did he just not hear it, or does he have kids too and know they say crazy innappropriate sh*t? I'm calming down now and thinking that this just went right under the radar when my kid stands up in the cart and curls her arms up with hands under the armpits and......................sure enough: "Ooh, ooh ooh, ooh". Doing her best gorilla impression, hopping up and down. At this point I decide that nothing I could say would make this a comfortable situation for either of us (or the little old blue hair hustling her ass the other way as fast as she could), so I shout "Thanks again sir!" over my shoulder whilst doing the doubletime shame shuffle in the other direction. I got the hell out of there ASAP, got home and told the wife and she about had a heart attack of her own. Let me qualify all this by saying that neither myself, my wife, or anyone we hang out with would ever say anything that would make my child associate a black person with a monkey, but knowing I did not influence her to make the comment does not in any way diminish the embarrassment I felt that day. I wish I had said something more to the guy, because if he did look at it as "ahh, kids say crazy sh*t" then fine but if he went home and told his wife some little racist cracker called him a monkey I feel bad. Anyway, what's done is done and while I hope he didn't take it wrong, I do have a story she will never hear the end of.
