You know, my friend was telling me a story about how when she was a little younger than me, she was working at a restaurant as a waitress.

Apparently there was a regular patron who was there all the time, but she’d never helped him.

His usual waitress was not there that day, and so my friend was the one charged with the duty of taking his order. 

He thought that he would take this opportunity to get a “hands on experience” with the new help. 

My friend did not approve.

She took a fork and promptly shoved it into his hand.

And he of course, screamed in agony and pain.

Her direct supervisor, lets call her Snaggletooth, saw this take place, and immediately pulled her from the floor. She happily complied, and walked into the back.

Her manager walks in, to which my friend says “So you’re here to fire me.”

"No, not at all" manager says.

"Well you’ve already pulled me from the floor."

"I didn’t. Snaggletooth did. Go back to work."

"So I’m fired at the end of the day?"

"If you want to quit, you’re welcome to. But as far as I’m concerned, you still have a job."

My friend went back to work, finished off her shift, and went about her business. Snaggletooth was, of course, beyond pissed.

A few days later, the pervert walks in. He asks to speak to my friend.

She agrees to see what he has to say, assuming its some sort of lawsuit.

In front of the entire restaurant, he humbly begs for her apology and replies that what he did was absolutely reprehensible, and that, if she would be kind enough to be his waitress again, he would never ever do that again.

She’s a better person than me, and so she accepted his apology. She helped him, and he left her a tip that was $100 dollars. In 1962, that was a lot of money.

Every time afterwards, he always asked to be helped by her, and was always respectful. And my friend, being a better person than me, forgave him for being a massive asshole.

He never disrespected her again.

That’s why I don’t put up with your shit, men. Because she taught me better than that. And I would be more than happy to put a fork in so many of your hands.

"So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."

Hari Kondabolu’s joke about the British colonisation of India [x]

This is a perfect way of illustrating how colonialisation works, it it’s brutal and intimate. It’s degrading.
