Short Talk: Who gave them the right?

Hhmm...in US for 2days and I have been at the butt of fat joke/comments more than once already! I think I counted 3 so far. And I always thought people from US are more polite than that. The jokes/comments are indirect but all the same, it is what it is! The conversation goes something like this:-

XXUS: So, are you originally from KL?
JenJen: Oh no, I am from Sarawak.
Boss: Her hometown is the furthers!
JenJen: Yah, need to cross the sea.
Boss: Only way to go from and to is by plane.
JenJen: Yup, unless wanna swim.
*smiles all around at the joke*
XXUS: But you should have no problem swimming. Wont feel cold with all the extra protection.

GEEZZZ!!! What right does this people think they have to say what they did just because they think someone is big size???? They don't hear me making bald jokes/comments at them do they? Or hear me asking them how come they talk funny! Or how come they are Chinese but can utter a single Chinese word? GGRR!!! HHMPFF!!!

Some people are just plain rude. Just ignore them. There are all kinds of weird people in this world.

Hi Nick,
Yah but I am shocked all the same because I would have thought they from developed country and SOOOO civilised! This is what we call: Say One thing, do another thing!

Hi Rose,
Yah, not all Americans are polite but I realised that those that made the comments are Chinese staying in America!
