I was giving a presentation to twenty some people in a classroom. The room is very small.
The host introduced me and handed me the mic.
“I don’t need it. Thank you. I’ll just talk like this. I think people can hear me.” I stood up.
“Why are all you mainlanders so loud?” I swear she did not think this was a remark that hurt my feelings.
But it is just one time too many for me to hear yet another yak about us mainlanders within a week!
