    Where are you from???

    Apparently this is a racially loaded question that we are not allowed ask which i think is a really sad state of affairs if you ask me.

    I'm not originally from Waterford so when people hear my accent they say oh your not from Waterford i laugh and say no im from....

    When I'm in work and someone new starts i ask them their name and as i get to know them i ask them where are they from especially if they aren't originally from Ireland because its how we get to know people, I even asked one guy who worked with us if i offended him when i asked him that and he said no no, I just wanted to get to know the guy and say oh yeah i have a neighbour from there or try bring up a bit of info i know about that country.

    Apparently this can be perceived as racism,
