Came back home from work late, as I always do on Thursdays, and stopped at McDonald’s to get some takeout for me and Yuko. While I was waiting for my order to be ready, I noticed two girls having trouble ordering. They were Asian, maybe Indonesian. I stepped in to do the translation, which is funny because I think it’s the first time ever that I put myself in such a role. I’m always the one worrying about not being able to express myself correctly in Japanese (or understanding others), and I was finally able to lend a hand. Made me feel good about my studies, even if it was just to help people find out prices and set combinations at a McDonald’s.
