Overheard at Beijing Restaurant

Old Woman #1: “Do you have waffles?”
Counter Clerk: “No. We’re a Chinese restaurant.”
Old Woman #1: (loudly to friend, apparently hard of hearing) “They don’t have waffles.”
Old Woman #2: “Ask them if they have pancakes.”
Old Woman #1: “Do you have pancakes?”
Counter Clerk: “No. We only have Chinese food.”
Old Woman #1: (loudly) “No. They only have Chinese food.”
Old Woman #2: “Ask them if they have Chinese pancakes.”

How did they manage to confuse the words "Perkins" and "Beijing"?

I love Korean pancakes. Can't remember what they're called, but they are yummy.

Korean Pancakes = Pajeon

I'm thinking maybe Beijing should consider investing in some pancake batter and maple syrup.  $5 pancake breakfast special!!

Once in San Francisco's China Town my Dad asked for coffee.  The waiter told him they had chinese coffee so my dad ordered it.  When it came to the table my dad said,  "Hey this is just tea."  

Miss you Dad!

When I was in San Francisco's Chinatown the only other white person on a block I was walking looked at me with disdain and shouted "Fuck you white America! I hate you!" I enjoyed that quite a bit.
