I laughed. :D I laughed harder imagining her grandchild saying it.

I'd have to have replied to the woman with a closed-smiled, "Hmmm." Before complimenting the birthday cake.

Twik:
Ah, yes. It must sting, but the ridiculousness of someone committing the gross rudeness of spontaneously telling someone how unpleasant they find people of their nationality, in the name of politeness, is completely amusing.

Isn't that the textbook definition of "ironic"?

Actually, the textbook definition goes like this:

i·ro·ny [ahy-ruh-nee, ahy-er-]
noun, plural i·ro·nies.
1. Rain on your wedding day.
2. Ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.
3. A death row pardon two minutes too late.
