Here are some funny real-life conversations I’ve had with retail people.
Me to cashier: One mocha, please.
Cashier to barista: One skinny mocha!
(Should I get insulted, or – ?)
Cashier (who is a Filipino like me): So ma’am, where are you from back home?
Cashier: Ahhh. They do say people from Davao are beautiful.
(Should I get insulted, or – ? Davao and Zamboanga are both from Mindanao and some people confuse them. But maybe not in this case?)
