I worked at Burger King at 15, and if you’re familiar with the fast food joint, its most popular burgers are the “Whopper” and the “Whopper Jr.” which is a smaller burger, hence “junior.”
I’m at the register and a Korean man, around 30 years old, comes up to the counter.
“A Whopper Jrrrrr,” he says.
I smirk. He smirks.
We both know it’s silly 😁
“Whopper Jrrrr,” he repeats, holding back laughter.
Oh, boy. The giggles started. Both of us.
I also had to learn English the hard way, and he could tell. It’s like we had a small moment of “Yeah, English sucks.” Hahaha (Let me tell ya, it’s a hard language to learn!)
“It’s Whopper Junior,” I tell him.
Hahaha You could hear the facepalm in his voice. How are you supposed to know it’s “junior” and not “jrrr”? 😂 Ah, language is funny.
Don’t even get me started on the Subway girl that burst out in laughter when I said “mine- straw- un…” instead of “minestrone.” 😏
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
