Today, as I was ringing up an Asian woman, I also answered a phone and gave directions to our store.
When I hung up, the smiling Asian woman said, "You did that so well. You have such patience to do all those things at once... you know, patience is a virtue," and said my name as she read it from my nametag. She was so impressed with my multi-tasking that she was reduced to a stereotypical Asian, speaking in mystical terms.
Has anyone else had a cliche fortune cookie quote said to them by an Asian person as sincerely as this woman said it to me?
I think not.
