Was queuing up for an ATM to get some cash and I was behind a group of school girls wearing Hejab. They were standing around giggling like school girls do, but when a woman said something to them under her breath, I was stunned that they shouted back at her. I guess I still have the stereotype about "nice Asian girls" or quite, repressed Muslim girls, floating about my psyche... I laughed out loud at the incongruity of what I saw, or more accurately, at the incongruity of my preconception V the reality of any group of teenage girls.
