Travel Store Customer: “Do you have any globes that have the United States bigger? I don’t need all this Africa, I just really want the US and Europe.”
Folks, that's just sad on a number of levels.
I feel like there are a lot of people with these narrow-minded notions when it comes to the world and I would rant but I'm kind of in a good mood and let's just laugh at this instead. Also I have no intention of sounding self-righteous because by no means do I have a perfect and well-rounded (no pun intended) view of the world. I'll just invite dear Travel Store Customer to get out a little more... maybe even outside of the Northern Hemisphere. Who knows what you'll find!
Coincidentally, the mormonchildbride's most recent controversial post has a bit to do with ethnocentrism within the LDS church. check it out.
