Okay, I heard this on Monday, and I find it absolutely incredible…
I have a friend from Senegal who recently accompanied the Senegalese ambassador on his visit to Taipei a couple of weeks ago, acting as his aide. While here the ambassador had audience with a number of high-ranking government officials, including the Mayor, and his deputy, Bai Hsiu-hsiung (I think… anyway, I doubt it was Ou).
Apparently, at one point Bai rubbed the skin on the ambassador’s arm with his fingers, and then looked at them to see if they were dirty or not. The ambassador promptly lost it, and yelled at Bai, “Every man has a position, and the one you are in is clearly not appropriate for you. How can you be so old, and still so stupid?!”
Bai went white as a ghost, and stumbled over his words for the rest of the meeting.
I find this truly unbelievable. Can this really happen? And if so, how could such an ‘educated’ person be so bloody stupid? :shock:
