Some things I learn the hard way. This was one of them.
Location: Upmarket Club
Scene: I was chatting up a cute chick.
Me: So tell me about yourself!
Chick: I’m an analyst at this investment bank! You?
Me: I’m a manager at this firm! Where are you from?
Chick: Guwahati, Assam.
Me: Oh cool! You know, I know a little bit of Assamese!
Chick: Show me!
Me: Aye kela! Ki koriasa?!
*Loosely translated ‘Wassup up d*ckhead?*
*I swear to God, I did not know! That’s how my Assamese friends greet each other!*
*Anyhow, while I was there waiting for her to be impressed*
Me: So? What do you think?
Chick: Ummmm… You just called m a d*ck!
Me: Whoa! No way! Sorry! I didn’t mean that! I honestly thought that it meant “Wassup?”
Chick: Yeah….Sure…..I’m gonna go now…..
