He had a short black with three sachets of Equal. She had a pot of green tea.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

That was all both hilarious (he was such a stereotype) and depressing (she really wasn’t having a fun time).

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

It’s a shame they’ve gone. I was going to slip him a note as I left. “Have you thought of STFU and letting the lady speak?” I’m sad.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

“Why do you do that stuff?”, he says. But sensing that she’s up for the role, he’s done. “I’ll get the bill.” [Exuent stage left.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

After half an hour of this, he finally asks, “So what are you doing at the moment?” She answers too quietly for me to hear.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

“She’s Chinese, but she’s Aussie. I mean, she’s Aussie, but she looks Asian.” The term “ABC” is used again.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

He’s still baffled by this “Asian but not Asian thing”, in the context of yet another potential actor now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Ah he’s an Agent, trying to sort out the cast. He’s name-dropping actors who “should be in it”, so clearly none of them have signed yet.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The actor confirms that the mentioned actor is not Chinese. “Really?”, he says. “But her father speaks Mandarin??!” He’s totally baffled.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

That’s how he pronounces it. Not “Ng” but “N-G”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The actor says she doesn’t think the actor mentioned is Chinese. “She lives in Singapore?! But her name’s N-G.”

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

He’s now talking about another actor he’s decided against. “She only speaks English. She’s Chinese but is an Aussie. Not even an ABC.”

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I can’t see the actor’s face because her back is to me, but she is “Asian” and the role is for a “struggling Asian chick”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

He pauses to drink coffee, she say a few words while his eyes dart aroundsay. He’s not paying attention at all. He’s simply not listening.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

He’s not noticing that her body language and hesitation is screaming discomfort.
