Today customer say, I eat here all the time and the food is always delicious!
I say, oh thank you! You too kind! My favorite business is REPEAT business!
Then he say, you must eat good Chinese food all the time! Egg drop soup...fried wonton...sweet and sour pork...
I thinking, maybe you big STOOBY. Maybe I just keep quiet, be nice. But I cannot help it, you know me...
So I try to keep calm and explain difference between "American" Chinese food and "real" Chinese food.
I say, you go to Chili's but you don't eat Awesome Blossom at home!
He no get it. Whole time he give me blank stare.
But I cannot think of better example. So he ask, then what you eat for dinner then?
I say, sometime I cooking some vegetables.
He say, oh you mean Buddha's Delight?
I say, JUST VEGETABLES! NOT EVERYTHING HAVE FANCY NAME!
Then I say, sometime I cooking chicken.
He say, oh General Tso's Chicken?
I say, YOU KIDDIN ME? WHAT DID I JUST EXPLAIN?
Then he ask, do Chinese people eat fortune cookie for dessert?
That when I very politely tell him very I have headache, please go away.
Sometime STOOBY IS STOOBY, WHAT CAN YOU DO.
