Right to Return

So, my parents in law were just here visiting us and they were amazed by the contour sheets for the bed. So they decided to buy lots and lots of them here in the stores.

Mom in law wanted those sheets in a huge measurement like 200×180, no questions asked by me, because she should know herself how big the bed is…

So the other da my wife got a message from her mom (who is now back in China) that the sheets do not fit   SURPRISE!!!  The bed is only 150cm or wide.

My wife asked then why she had to buy so big sheets and the answer was:
“These are contour sheets so I thought they would fit on any size”

Okay okay, sounds already a bit weird but it gets better.

My wife wasn’t too happy about it because we bought the sheets for the parents. The great idea to rescue the situation came by her mom once again:

“I come back to visit you anyways in half a year, so I just bring the sheets with me so you can return them”.

SURE, bring back opened sheets after half a year to the store.

Asian logic? Chinese logic? Or did I just hit the jackpot with my parents in law? 🙂

The Zoo

You’ve been ever in a Zoo with Chinese? No, well you didnt miss a thing. The problem is that according to them (at least my parents in law) all the animals are some kind of mouse or other standard house pet.

So when we passed by some walrus my mom in law asked my wife “What is this for a weird mouse?” My wife tried to convince her that it is a sea mammal but all what happened then “That’s a really huge mouse!”…D’oh.

Have you ever seen the red panda? It’s a fluffly little thing and my dad in law “Oh, what a nice cat.”

You might say that this is all not so bad, just amusing. Ofcourse its amusing in the beginning but it all adds up to create a mass of confusing and irritation for a normal mortal being such as myself

All starts here

Certainly I have much to write about my great Chinese Family, oddities just pile up everytime we visit them or hear about them.

There are weird things as their ideas of hygiene, what time its important to eat or their main cause of any illness. Well, this all will be written soon so enjoy it

My crazy Chinese Family I married into…
