An awkward conversation between me and my manager.
Me: I am planning on visiting my brother during holidays.
Manager: Oh, where does he live?
Manager: Is he your real brother?
I am confused 'what does she mean real brother?'. My manager notices the confused look and says,
Manager: Do you share at least one parent?
More confusion and slightly offended.
Me: We share both the parents!
Manager: Oh OK.
Conversation ends awkwardly and we both get back to work. Later I talk to my roommate and she enlightens me about terms I dint know before half brother and step brother.
I look back and laugh at this. Our cultural differences made the conversation so confusing. Watch this guy talk about his experiences, they are much funnier :)
Do you have any such experiences? Do share I would love to know.
