Chow-Soo

I had a Chinese algebra teacher when I was in middle school.

He was pretty decent at the English language with only a slight accent to his words.

But there was one word he’d always fuck up: my buddy’s name, Charles.

Mr. Lee would call him “Chow-Soo” instead of Charles. What?

“CHOW-SOO! Where your homewohk?”

“CHOW-SOO! Go to boahd and sowve [solve] probrem.”

It got to the point where Charles asked to be called “Chaz.” And then he became a skater punk kid. I mean, how could he not with a nickname like that?

I guess that’s not as bad as that one time some Korean lady was looking for peanut butter but kept calling it “penis butter.”
