(My grandma is in her early 80s. People can’t always understand what she’s trying to say, but she understands even less that people have this trouble.)

Grandma: *without making any gestures, speaking in Chinese* “Can you go there and buy me that thing? It costs around this amount…”

(I stay silent, as I have no idea what she is talking about.)

Grandma: “What? You don’t understand Chinese?!”
