Down Blunder, Part 3

| Learning | March 31, 2014

(I am getting ready to start my freshman year of college at a Catholic university. As part of our orientation, we are taken on a three-day retreat in large groups. I’m on the retreat with the international students since I’m an international studies major. It’s the last night of the retreat and people are going on stage to talk about things they learned about their group members.)

Girl: “I just think it’s so brave of [International Student] to come all the way here for college! It must be so different in the central US because it’s landlocked and the seasons are the opposite of Australia’s!”

International Student: *whispering to me* “I’m from Austria.”

(She thought he was Australian the whole time he was studying there!)
