I must have misplaced my white privilege check......

We live paycheck to paycheck. One major car repair, and we're juggling to figure it out.

Sure, we appear to live higher than our means, but only because there was a point where we had some money (for about 2 years), and we purchased some nice things for our home at the time. (mostly some really good furniture and appliances). Had no reason to feel it wouldn't continue, but alas, economy then tanked.

We have horses for example, but those are paid for by us boarding and caring for others' horses to pay for it.

We have a big house, but our two adult kids also reside there and pay rent. (and it's a fortune to keep a big house cool in Florida, in the spring/summer).

And we are both underemployed, with Masters degrees, but also the student loan debt that comes with it.

We had two trucks (that were paid for), but an accident sidelined one of them (we didn't have collision because it was too expensive, and the repairs would have equalled our deductible anyhow)...

I got 105 out of 100. I am so white and privileged I broke the test.

'Do you drink your Oolong with a pinky extended?'. Check.
'Do you talk through your teeth with a blue blood accent?'. Check.
'Do you look like a total spazz on the dance floor?'. Checkaroony.
'Do you shower without a wash cloth?'. Hellz to the friggin yes.

73/100. I feel like the questions about being called a fag and whatnot probably don't really apply so that number might be higher, guys crap talk.

The world cannot handle my crackerness.

Now, excuse me, I am off to make an artisanal grilled cheese panini and have a Perrier.

I was wondering who got a hold of all my whiteness...

'Do you shower without a wash cloth?'.


People shower with washcloths? What kind of animal...

You have your nasty pouf (I had to Google the name) for your butt/taint, you have your clean one for the rest of you, you have your back thing and a sponge. Washcloths are for washing your face and pretending to be a giant with a tiny towel to irritate your girlfriend.

I DID quit. It was so obviously a set-up I couldn't continue.

Never be ashamed of your honkiness. Let it flow from you like a Vanilla Ice song.

Your wife must be in a constant state of the giggles!

But ... I have been treated poorly at times in my life for being thin. For being white. For being female. For being straight. For not being poor.
But that's not what the test wanted to hear.... so I bailed.

Yep. I can give examples.

Whoa. Gave some examples, but removed them, wondering what point I am trying to prove. It doesn't belong here. Besides, they were one-shot kinds of things. Not a pattern, and there is a difference.

But hey, on a personal note, I bet your wife gets frustrated trying to have a serious discussion with you, and you keep cracking jokes until she smacks you! I wonder how many times she has said to you "I really need to talk about this. Can you be serious for a few minutes?" To which you respond with a joke and she runs to the bedroom and slams the door.

Amiright?

You’re not privileged at all. You grew up with an inter sectional, complicated identity, and life never let you forget it. You’ve had your fair share of struggles, and you’ve worked hard to overcome them. We do not live in an ideal world and you had to learn that the hard way. It is not your responsibility to educate those with more advantages than you.

True enough...sadly.

If I let her read this she would probably agree with you. But then again, she says that I am one of the few people that can make her laugh all the time so it's a trade off.
