Like Jamaica

Georgeflash

Who feels it knows it!
I was just at a coffee shop and the guy ahead of me was telling the store manager that he was from Trinidad.

The Manager, a disheveled South Asian looking individual, asked what language they spoke in Trinidad.

The Trini fellow indicated that it was English but somewhat of a bastardized version. The Asian man, who I refer to as Missa Chin though he was clearly not Chinese, was puzzled by what that meant. The Trini tried desperately to explain but neither Missa Chin nor the bevy of buxom beauties he had serving behind the counter understood.

Exasperated, the Trini fellow said "Well it's like Jamaican".

At which point Missa Chin smiled, acknowledging he got it. He then asked the Trini fellow. "How close to Jamaica is Trinidad?"


DASH OUT - Still not close enough.

Its different in a lot of ways, but its still culturally relevant, so it can stick in a lot of people's craw having to asterisk what they're saying about their region.

That's my PC answer. But I'm ready to read too.

Nikki hates trinidad because she doesn't like the men. she likes Jamaican men. She'd rather be cuffed than horned i suppose.

Or well I don't know why your brother feels like that black Indian whatever even if it was an "Indian" country it's still Caribbean as the Caribbean is made up of different races. So he saying the St Lucian Indians or whites less Caribbean ? Anyway your brother seem to be lacking education and experience.

I feel like threads like this that is started just to divide gets more forward than anything else. Are we grown people bout here?

except Jamaicans and you apparently.
I rarely hear Jamaicans caring for anything other country other than whats going on in their own social sphere.Why would they mention Trinidadians?

But the modern blueprint is Trinidadian, and acting like its any different is badmind.

As for the red, I'm really responding to Jamaicans on Imix. Note this thread. And Jamrok who's favorite thing to do is troll trinis. They're not alone.

Although to be fair George just makes funny posts about everyone else. He's done things like this with Bajans too.
