Many Thanks!

(I’m eating out with my mom and her twin sister. When we’re almost done with our meal, my aunt flags down the waitress.)

Aunt: “How do you say, ‘Thank you,’ in Chinese?”

Waitress: “Xièxiè.”

(With her particular accent, the waitress pronounces this so it sounds like, ‘Say say,’ which my aunt takes to mean, “Say that again.”)

Aunt: “How do you say, ‘Thank you,’ in Chinese?”

Waitress: “Xièxiè.”

Aunt: “How do you say, ‘Thank you,’ in Chinese?”

Me: “[Aunt], she’s telling you that ‘Xièxiè’ is Chinese for ‘Thank you.’”
