some things don’t translate! 有的事情是不能翻译过来的!

recently a friend brought over a package of oatmeal cookie mix she was given by some foreigners.    these well meaning foreigners thought that a package of cookie mix was the perfect gift for someone who worked so hard as their translator for a week.

One thought on “some things don’t translate! 有的事情是不能翻译过来的!

  1. UUGHH – I can understand not liking the cookies – they were “OATMEAL”. Don’t get me wrong, I like oatmeal and I like oatmeal cookies, but I can just imagine being in their place and tasting oatmeal cookies for the first time. Maybe if they had been chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies, that might have made a difference.

    Still a funny story and just goes to show how much WE take for granted.

    Love You
