36, that wasn't a joke I'm pretty sure that was a 2013 FML maybe early 2013. Either way I remember seeing it as an FML

71, the Super salad thing IS a joke. I heard it a LONG time ago and it made me think of the same thing when ever I was asked "soup or salad?“ I'm pretty sure it was an FML too.

Not understanding someone who more than likely has a thick accent does not make you "dumb".

I'm from New Zealand. 1/3 of out population in Auckland City are Chinese. I've been around them all my life. There's never an accent in Chinese too hard to understand. One just has to listen intently and ask the speaker to slow down. It's the fault with many foreign people; once they think they know the words, they try to speak faster! But if they slow down, they're much easier to comprehend - even with grammatical and pronunciation mistakes.

#17: I have heard thick accents from all different nationalities, including Chinese-born professors and bosses.

The same thing happened to me in Peru! There were these two gorgeous Peruvian men who approached me as I was hiking up a mountain and began speaking to me. I said, "I'm sorry. I don't speak English. One of them replied, "I know. We're speaking English." All I could do was say, "Uh.... Bye!" and run away in embarrassment.

#39 what? You told them you don't speak English, and they were speaking English. What's the problem?

Common mistake. Racial heritage and language don't have to correlate. I've got lots of Brazilian friends who are of Chinese heritage and speak fluent portuguese, spanish and english, but no chinese and wouldn't know what to do with chopsticks.
