After work drinks for the boys from West Betoota Formwork And Concreting took a risky turn last night, after loose cannon Todd loudly warned the entire bar that he was going to say something that would probably sound racist, which generally means someone is definitely about to say something racist.
“Hey, you know, this is probably going to sound racist, but have you ever noticed…” began Todd, causing most of his mates in the vicinity to immediately pretend they weren’t listening.
We spoke to some of the workmates at the centre of this very vocal announcement of cultural observations
“The bartender is from Brazil, Terry’s missus is from Vietnam, and T-Dog is half Pakistani” said co-worker Mike.
“I have no idea what he’s about to say, but I’m not sticking around to find out. Todd hasn’t gone full-time yet, but I know he spends a lot of time on Youtube..”
“After hearing some of his other semi-drunken outbursts, I know this isn’t going to end well” warned another bloke, Stephan, as he joined the white flight to the car park.
“The guy is as subtle as a mouse-trap in your undies. If he accidentally starts a riot with one of his stupid anecdotes again then we either have our faces smashed in or we get fired when someone uploads a video of us smashing someone else’s face in. I’m outta here”.
According to grainy security footage, Todd regaled the bar with a highly offensive personal theory which led to an impromptu rinsing down from a nearby scaffolder.
At this point, disaster was averted when Todd was able to use his phone to prove some of his facebook friends are of different nationalities and the hulking Kiwis let him off with a light glassing.
