Example #1: My brother came up behind me during lunch in high school to scare me with a big bear hug. When he turned to see the surprised look on my face, he found himself embracing some other Asian girl that he had never met before.
Example #2: When I was young, my family would go to Asian festivals to celebrate all of the eastern cultures and cuisine. I ran into an Asian friend while I was there.
Me: Hi Kathleen!
Girl: I'm not Kathleen.
Me: Yes you are. It's me, [my name]. Remember me?
Girl: (blank stare)
Me: Where is your brother?
Girl: Which one?
Me: You have TWO brothers?
Girl: Yes, they are over there.
Me: Wow, Jon-boy grew. Where is your mom?
Girl: She is next to them.
Me: Huh. She looks different. Where is your dad?
Girl: He's with my mom.
At that point, I got really confused because Kathleen's dad was caucasian, and I only saw Asian men at that table.
After my odd conversation with her, it took my mom ten minutes of arguing with me until I realized that I had a conversation with a total stranger. You think I could have figured that out on my own, but THEY LOOKED EXACTLY THE SAME!
