Unintended Irony File

Overheard while getting lunch today. One young woman to another. Accent, pure Queens.

Everyone hates her. She's so condescending. [pause] You know, she talks down to everyone.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

Yes, I agree. It's awful.

It makes me feel a little bit better about our form of government.

Hey, man! This was supposed to go under the Zimbabwe post!!!

Is this where we get to talk down to Mick? As in, "Hey MICK! I think you meant this to be in the Zimbabwe comment thread!"

;-) hee...

What's so ironic about that? And what does a Queens accent have anything to do with it?

Thanks Mick and Amber for the unintended, on Mick's part, humor!

Hannah -- the accent bit was so that you could hear the voice for yourself in the privacy of your own home and the irony part was that she was describing another woman as condescending while she was being both condescending and even patronizing herself.

I wouldn't recognize a Queens accent if it hit me over the head. :) But I get it now, thanks.
