My coteacher and I have awkward moments all the time. Most of them stem from translation issues. As soon as I got in his car this morning, we had one that almost made me laugh out loud. I didn’t know how to react, so I just ignored it.
Me: (sneeze) Excuse me.
Mr. Kim: You are welcome.
Me: Thank you.
Mr. Kim: Hmmm………..You are welcome.
Things like this happen constantly, but this is the first time he seemed to realize his mistake. If I were not worried about hurting his feelings, I would have cracked up.
Until next time.
