When I was reading PIPO's blog, she said she was trying to learn some Chinese, and hoped she wouldn't offend anyone with her Chinese, when in China! Well, that brought a very funny story to my mind, which I don't think I've shared here, before.
We're in China. (In Xi'An) We went to have dinner at a local restaurant. NO-ONE in the restaurant spoke English. So there was lots of gestures and pointing to pictures! The waitress pulls out the chair, and motions for me to sit. I sit, H-man sits next to me. Mr T was taking off his jacket or something, and didn't see the waitress come round behind him. Mr T, instinctive pats Miss M on the bottom and says to sit down. He was highly embarrassed to find, he'd patted the waitress on the bottom!!! He then proceeds to say "Xi Xi" (thinking he said sorry).
He actually said "thank you".
So not only did he "touch her up"... he then thanked her for the pleasure!!!!
