We were sitting in the mortgage broker's office and when it came time to reveal our salaries, she remarked, "How is it that you have so much in savings when you have such little revenue?" As we explained our situation, I couldn't help thinking how backhanded the compliment was.
Then later when talk of padding the revenues came up, we expressed our discomfort with her suggestions. To which she replied, "I know, we are Quebecers and we have that upstanding catholic upbringing. But you know, if I had a couple of Jews in front of me, they would be doing WHATEVER needed to be done to get this deal. Because you know you guys have found an awesome deal."
There it was again, slanderous praise.
