Chinese Lady Had Me Cracking Up! Silent, Shoulder Shaking Laughing.



I was at the library today and I was on the computer and there was a super loud lady giving a Chinese lady English lessons. As in teaching her how to speak English. It's all you could hear because she was talking so loud.

And I started cracking up and almost had to leave because this happened:

Instructor: The word is "huge." Say it. "Huge."

Chinese Lady: Hoog.

Instructor: No. "Huge."

Chinese Lady: Hoog.

Instructor: Huge.

Chinese Lady: Hoog.

Instructor: No. Like this, "Huuuuuge."

Chinese Lady: Hooooog.

HAHA!! So I finally calm down from my silent, shoulder shaking laughing and I hear the instructor mention what a synonym was. But at first I thought she as saying "cinnamon" and thought she was going to make the Chinese woman say "cinnamon!"

HAHAHA!!! She can't get "huge" down and you're going to have her attempt "cinnamon????" WHAT THE HELL???

Then I couldn't stop laughing so I had to leave.

Hahahahaha

Sybil - what made it extra funny is that it was totally silent except for the loud voices of the two of them. I kep looking to see if anyone else was lauging but nobody was.

I guess everyone else was too mature.

I would have been pissed off that they were speaking in the library. I'm nuts about it.

I would have started participating lesson. Just loud enough for the instructor to hear, while going about the nefarious websurfing that I didn't want tied to my home IP address.

Note ... When teaching English, no one on EARTH needs to know how to say the words Cinnamon, Aluminum, and Persimmon. Great story! W.C.C.

At my former job there was a co-worker and his name was Bjorn (as in Bjorn Borg) ... An elderly client came to our office and I was always the first person they would see and address to. He wanted to talk to Bjorn but paused for like 3 seconds when he finally said ; I want to see ... (3 seconds) PORN ... :^)

I closed the office door politely and said ; just wait a second here sir ... I had to straighten my act before I could look at his face again...

Dominica - Ha!

And I love that guy's name.

I still can't say the word cinnamon and I've been a native English speaker for 43 years now...
