So, I work for a company that is primarily based in Singapore. This is cool because I consequently have very culturally diverse peers (if you think the US is a “melting pot”, you should take a look at Singapore). In fact, I believe I am one of only two American-born employees in a company of about 60.

At any rate, a lot of friendly “cultural differences” conversations take place during lunch, which I find both enlightening and entertaining. At one such lunch, a group of us were having Chinese food, and I noticed that among the four of us, the two non-Chinese people were using chopsticks, while the native Chinese guys were using forks. I asked my colleague about this juxtaposition and he said, “I don’t have to use chopsticks, I’m Chinese!” Americans are such posers.
