My wife and I can be socially awkward at times. I remember one particular incident when we took Michelle to see her veterinarian. We choose this particular veterinarian because he offered discount vaccines but he always tries to up-sell us additional tests and exams. So we always have to say no to the extras.
The medical exam went a little like this:
Vet: Everything looks great with Michelle, except there might be something concerning about her eyes. She is squinting a lot. We would like to run some additional tests for her eyes.
Beanpole: Oh, she’s okay. She’s Asian, and that’s just how her eyes are. She thinks it’s rude to look people directly in the eyes, so she squints at them.
We paid for the vaccine and went home. I don’t think we ever went back.
