So I’m talking to a French guy in my Japanese class, and he’s complaining that his cell phone doesn’t work here.
I explain that Japan (and South Korea) use different cell tech than most of the rest of the world, so unless he has a phone specifically designed to work here it probably won’t.
He’s all “man, why is it that one country has to be stupid and use a standard that nobody else in the world uses?”
And I look at him for a minute, to make sure he’s being serious, and I say unto him:
And to his credit he looked sheepish and mumbled something apologetic.
And then we changed the topic.
