« Not a good career for me
More Office Bashing »
Lost in translation

I like to have a playful relationship with my coworkers, and this includes this one girl who likes to trade insults with me 8th-grade style. We have fun, but it can be weird sometimes because her English is not fanstastic.

For example, today our AC at work died today for a couple of hours, so in one meeting we were in together it was getting quite stifling. I said something like "Wow, it's way too warm in here." To which she replied "<giggle> well it's your fault!" To give her a good taunt I replied with "Because I'm so hot?" She giggled again and said, "No! It's because you're burning in Hell!!!"

I have no idea what she was trying to say; maybe it would be less disturbing in Chinese.
