Been a while since I've been here, but this was so funny I had to post it.
Trying to update my wife's medicaid paperwork ... and now the State of Arkansas says I have to fill out a special form if I'm native. Okay, no problem --- except the form isn't included and I can't find it online at the Arkansas DHS website.
I call the DHS folks and ask for the form listed. At first they tell me they have never heard of it, and ask why I need it. So, I explain why and read the information on the "income update form" out loud to the "professional" on the other end.
"Oh, that is to prove your immigration status."
I said: "Why do I need to prove my immigration status when we were here before you folks?"
Immediately, he called me a racist. When I asked him the name of what he was smoking, he went ballistic screaming and yelling at me then hung up the phone.
Called back and spoke to the next talking head. Had to explain to her that our people were here before the Europeans, Africans, Asians, Latinos, and everyone else. Then I said: "So we were here before any of you people ,,, " She immediately cut me off and says, "I don't have to listen to that language!"
Now I curious, "What language?" --- "YOU PEOPLE! You said YOU PEOPLE! I don't have to take that!" I tried to calm her, there was no reasoning with her.
So, (just for laughs) why do we have to prove our immigration status?
More importantly (again, just for laughs) ... HOW?
