When the Doorbell Rang

written by Kay Makishi (福岡県)

The delivery man came to my house today and asked me to sign the receipt.

He looks at me, “Did you sign in English or something?”

I reply, “Hai. America-jin. Desu.”

He gives me a look like he just saw a ghost. It’s called being Asian-American. Desu.
