Overheard in Chicago

The other day on the train there were these two guys that got on (middle aged white men) and one of them sat down next to me and immediately I got a whiff of that wet-the-bed odor. Yuck, anyway, after I got over that, Man #1 opened the Red Eye and started reading some stats on ethnic make-up of different neighborhoods, stating some out loud to Man #2. Then this happened
Man #1: No, you'd be white non-hispanic.
Man #2: I'm not white, I'm German.
Man #1: Oh, I guess you'd be other. What is other? You're either black, white, Asian or Hispanic, what the hell is other?
Man #2 sits silently looking uncomfortable.
Man #1 finally says: Maybe other is Ecuadorian. It must be Ecuadorian.
Man #2: Where is Ecuador?

I just had to share.

Speaking of overheard tidbits, my bro overheard a gem at the beach, check it out
