I once asked for a straw by making the motion of sucking one while holding my thumb and pointer together. The waitress thought I wanted a joint.
In Taiwan, a waitress was nervous serving a whole table of English people. She scanned the table, looked at me, and spouted off some Mandarin. I am not Asian, but always get asked what my background is. The whole table laughed.
While looking for a computer at an internet café, I missed a step and fell flat on my face. Smooth, as always.
I have shared a cab with a person I met on a plane. Yes, I’ve seen ” Taken.” Oops. Sorry, Mom. ( My stop was farther than his. He paid. I trust too much, but it works out.)
I guess this is another ” random thoughts” post. Work was tiring today:) I haven’t posted a blog entry lately, but have some exciting things in the works.
Do you have any funny, embarrassing, or dumb stories from the road?
