I went to buy train tickets the other day. Next to me in the line was a young Chinese couple who gave me tired looks. When I started ordering the tickets in Chinese their attention was caught and soon I heard the guy ask the girl (in Chinese)
-Do you understand a word of what she is saying?
-No, not one!
Aoooooch! Talk about getting your ego hurt. Stupid young couple. Why did I have to understand what they said?!
However, I did receive every single ticket I asked for (a total of 6 different ones) so at least the ticket seller must have understood me… Damn. This was a setback!
