Strange Holiday Resort Interaction #1

Man with accent which I can’t place: Herble flerble doobie sprobble?

Me: Beg your pardon?

MWAWICP: I said, are you Ukrainian?

Me: Uh, no. English.

MWAWICP: I ask because of your beard.

Me: My… beard?

MWAWICP: Yes, your beard. I know man with beard not like yours, he not Ukrainian. But I also know man with beard like yours, and he Ukrainian. So I wonder if you also Ukrainian.

Me: … … You have a good holiday now pal.

  1. I’m late to this and you don’t know me, but I have a personal anecdote which makes me feel like I am contributing to the conversation, while actually adding nothing useful whatsoever.

    My friend Alexandr is from Moldova, so he’s virtually Ukrainian, and if he had a beard it would almost certainly be nothing like yours.
