A while ago i was living in Hong Kong and working for local family .One day i decided to visit a local wet market to purchase Bean sprouts .
Price was 5 Hong Kong dollars for 1 KG .
"Not a bad deal "I thought to myself.
I seen old lady ,by her stand ,selling all kinds of vegetables ..
"Can i buy 1 kg of bean sprouts ...? " i asked ,not knowing volume of vegetable i will get (First time buying this ) ..
Old lady did not speak any English , so my effort to speak was useless . After a while of confusion i managed to get 1 kg of bean sprouts .
I left ,but after a couple of minutes of walking , i realized that its too much of bean sprouts and decided to turn back and return half ..
I approached the stand and smiled at old lady , I tried to explain that i want to return half .
She went mad ... screaming all kinds of words .. I did not speak any Chinese so i had no clue what she was talking about .. There i was embarrassed standing in front of the stands and regretting my decision to return damn bean sprouts . All the people passing would stop and look what`s going on .
After a while of screaming she passed me a bag with half the amount of sprouts while still mumbling something in Chinese ...
Gladly i left .. I still laugh about confusion over vegetables with mad Chinese woman .
