A few weeks ago I participated in a meeting with some of our senior executives. A week later my team was standing in the hallway with an Asian client when one of the executives came by to introduce himself. I happened to be standing right next to our Asian client.
Executive(to client): Hello, my name is Executive. Welcome to our office. We are happy to have you.
Client (in poor English): Yes. Yes. Yes. Hello.
Executive(to me): Hello, my name is Executive. And you are?
Jonah (in what Jonah assumes to be unaccented English): Uh, my name is Jonah.
Jonah’s Manager: Jonah works with us. He just started a few months ago.
Executive: Oh….. How do you like working in XXX department?
Jonah: I like it.
