A Great Wall Of Ignorance, Part 2

| Friendly | June 22, 2015

(My friend and I are riding the train home. I’m calling my mom to let her know that there’s been a delay and that we’ll be late.)

Me: *talking on the phone in Chinese*

Friend: *after I hang up* “Was that Japanese?”

Me: “Oh, no, that was Chinese.”

Friend: “But I thought you were Asian?”

Me: “What?”

(After a few back-and-forths, I realize that she thinks Asia is a country. I try to explain to her that it isn’t, but she doesn’t get it.)
