Oh, god! Today = hilariously awkward.
As you may or may not know, in India it is not at all uncommon for well-educated, wonderful, thoughtful people to call people from China -- or people who have typical East Asian features -- Chinks.
Which of course makes me, a PC thug, want to die every time I hear it.
Apparently SV and TK have had some trouble scheduling a call with a woman from Shanghai, and all day it's been, "The Chink's responded again!" "What's the Chink have to say this time!"
I have no idea how to diplomatically express my...well, I guess, disgust...at the term, without making it seem like I think they are objectionable people. Wah wah wah....
