I wasn’t aware of the rivalry between Mexicans and El Salvadorans.
Anyway, this thread isn’t really aptly titled. I really just wanted to share one of the many instances of cross-cultural communication difficulties that I find to be humorous (humourous)…
For instance, the other day, my boy was imitating someone and my wife was in tears, laughing at the same. I entered the room and my wife said to me, in English, “our boy should be a Canadian”.
“A Canadian?”, I questioned.
“Yes, yes!” she replied still laughing.
“Why should our boy be a Canadian?”, I asked.
“Because, he’s so funny”, my wife explained.
Well, OK, she was trying to say that our boy should be a comedian… I found that mistake to be more funny than our boy’s imitation…
I sorted my wife out on that score, and she agrees that while we like many Canadians, and indeed have many friends who are Canadians, our boy should probably not be a Canadian when he grows up.
I guess its still OK for him to be a comedian, should he want to do so.
I guess this thread is somewhat similar to the “Funniest things my SO has said” or whatever its titled… but, while I rely heavily on my secretaries for assistance, I cannot really refer to them as my SOs.
Anyone else have funny stories to share?
