When It Rains It Pours...
...At least in regards to Asian women talking’ a lot of trash.
I called in the office breakfast order this morning since I had to put everything on my credit card. My order was the “Healthy” wrap with coffee. Others ordered eggs and double hash browns and one girl ordered an ice tea with a plain donut.
As I was dictating the donut order to the Asian lady on the other end of the phone, she interrupted in order to shamelessly berate me: “We don’t have donut! And donut not healthy!”
“No, they’re not,” I agreed. “But moving right along, a number 3 Healthy wrap, iced coffee…”
“Ah, much better,” she said as if she was responsible for correcting my previous bad decision.
I emailed the girl with the donut order and told her the story. I heard her spew out laughter all the way from my office.
But, now I must know: How does one redeem herself in the eyes of the trash-talkin’ Asian woman? Is it as simple as ordering the Healthy wrap?
I tend to doubt it. For, if this were the case, Asian women the world over and I wouldn’t have the problems that we do. And boy do we ever have problems…
