Sadly, Not So Different…

So, the other day I was at my favorite Chinese supermarket, Tone Tai, when I saw and heard a large, angry Caucasian man go to the front counter and ask loudly, “Does anyone here speak English?”

I don’t know what he was so upset about, but I didn’t stay around to find out.  I moved past him quickly and got into a checkout line.

As I waited my turn, I saw him leave.  He was still fuming as I heard him complain loudly to his companion.  “… they move here to my country, they should learn to speak my language!!”

I was so tempted go up to him and say, “Excusez moi, parlez vous francais?”

After all, this is Canada, so he should learn the language, right?
