Overheard at the Diner

My back was turned - but I overheard the following conversation in the booth behind me:

Woman: Do you want home fries?


Woman: Do you like potatoes? Because Homefries are potatoes.

Male: Yes.

Woman: He'll have the home fries.

It took the following bit of conversation to make me understand that the woman was sponsoring an exchange student:

Woman: Do you know what? When I hear you speaking in Korean, It always sounds like you're angry.

Male: Really?

Woman: Yes. Korean just sounds so angry.

For that brief moment, English sounded kind of tasteless!

    You cannot be serious! Someone actually said THAT?

    I just am speechless.

    It's amazing to me how some people are so clueless. You would think a person who was open enough to host an exchange student would know better.
