The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
You'd think he'd know better with a name like Richard Coonz.

TomTom is administrating a housing discrimination lawsuit and had this following telephone conversation with a claimant--

No sir, this isn't section 8.

Again, this isn't section 8 so I can't help you get an apartment.

I do have a claim for you, sir but the claim you sent doesn't get you a section 8 apartment. It's for taking part in the distribution of the settlement fund. Which you cannot do since you are not eligible.

Sir, in order to be eligible you must be African American or Hispanic.

African American.

African American.

African American-- like black. Yes exactly like black.



Yes, Hispanic means Spanish people.

And the claimants name really was Dick Coonz.


Yes, Hispanic means Spanish people.

Close enough for this guy, I suppose. It was probably smart of TomTom not to introduce the concept of Latino into the conversation at this point. That just would have kept him on the phone for hours.
