I bumped into a plumber I used to work with back in my laboring days. We used to pal around the job site a little. One day we were working in the same unit and he got to talking about his travels in the Navy. He had spent some time in Turkey and Saudi Arabia. “What was Saudi Arabia like?’ I asked.
“It’s like a funeral home that’s an entire country.”
I asked about Turkey. “Picture a retarded Mexican family who doesn’t wash their hands before cooking” I apologize to any Turks or Saudi Arabians. His words, not mine. What can I say? That’s the way people talked out there.
