While At Incheon

Postby Kerouac77 » 21 Jun 2012, 20:50

on my way to Taiwan with my Taiwanese wife and 2 girls for a vacation some strange things happened. First there was a middle aged Chinese guy behind us laying down with his hat over his face. He peeks out from under his hat and begins to whistle the Star Spangled Banner. Strange that because how did he even know I was American. I could have been many different nationalities. No American flag pin on my lapel. Here's where it gets bad though. 2 Chinese guys sit down beside us. Star staring at my kids with a snarl on their faces and saying that my kids should be chained up like dogs because they're mixed. Now my wife is getting nervous because she knows I'm not letting this continue. I go sit across from them and start staring at them. They notice it then realize I understood what they said. I then lean forward and motion for them to do the same. I then say, " Hey see those 2 little girls? Those are your sisters. I got your Mothers pregnant while on a business trip a few years back". The snarl returns to their faces. I then ask if they'd like to step into the restroom and settle this. They got up and moved. Everyone else sitting around was looking at my kids and smiling and being so nice. Not many people there that day. The only 3 Chinese I could spot caused trouble. Strange.

I was at Incheon Airport in Korea on my way to Taiwan for a vacation. Spent most the summer in Taiwan and had a wonderful time. Been longing to go back again!

Glad you stood up for your kids. People need to learn a little common courtesy.
