Today, I almost got written up for insubordination by my boss. All I did was explain to him that I couldn't help a tourist out because I speak Japanese, not Korean, and that it's not in fact "the same Asian shit" as he seemed to think. FML

Your boss is an idiot.

Most bosses are.

Idiot doesn't even begin to describe his amount of stupidity.

depending on where you live, they have laws that prohibit and punish that kind of behavior.

Yeah your boss sounds ignorant and racist. You don't have anyone above him that you can report that incident too.

Insubordinasian?

I think .. I think you won.

Well, your boss is kind of racist, isn't he?

Nope, just ignorant.

And a dipshit

And a dipshit...lol

There is a difference between ignorance and racism and this was on the ignorant side.

That's beyond ignorance to be honest. It's flat out stupidity. Ok, we can't know everything, and everybody makes mistakes, but ignorance shouldn't be an excuse for douche-canoes like this. Not knowing how to differenciate between Japanese and Korean people is ok, because not everybody can, but saying "the same Asian shit"? That's crossing the line.

Wow thats so rude. If someone cant respect their employes then they dont really need to be in charge. Sorry you have to work under someone like that OP, hopefully it will get better.

I don't understand why this comment is getting down voted... Is there some secret code or something that tells the hello kitty gang when to down vote a certain comment?

Is your boss Rick Perry??

What a twat,inconsiderate and a discriminative twat

Can you not threaten action against him for racial prejudice? You don't need to take that shit from any employer.

We don't actually know that OP is Japanese, just that they speak Japanese.

people can be so ignorant

People are hilariously ignorant; "Do you speak Asian?" "How do you say that in Indian?" "Do you speak African?" "They were speaking Mexican" FYL OP it seems the more educated and informed you are the more you get blamed when things go wrong.

Or my personal favourite, "I only speak American."

I's speak 'murican good!

Or the best one I've ever encountered:"I'd like to tour Europe one day, but I don't speak British."

Hoe can your boss not know the difference between Korean and Japanese? Your boss is a racist prick

Which precisely makes him racist. In nz, we have all Asian cultures. It's excusable to ask someone where they're from if you're unsure (or even guess), but inexcusable to state all Asians are the same. That's the 90's racism we have grown passed.

He never said he hates anyone just ignorant.. Learn the term racism

racism = the belief that one race is better than all others. he didn't do anything racist, only ignorant
