When I am told “Go back to China”, my response?

Did it happen? Yes, only once. Possibly more in the future.

When? Four or five years ago.

Where? In the shore near my lake home beach

How?

Following is my account:

When my wife saw a powerboat anchored too close to my beach, she asked the man to move the boat away.

Then he replied, but I couldn't hear because of my hearing loss.

She said, "He told me to go back to China." I don't tolerate this babbling another minute. 

Sir, I am not from China.

That could be the right answer, but that doesn’t satisfy my boiling ego.

Here was my cordial reply to this white idiot.

“This is my home.”

“This is my town.”

“This is my country.”

“I don’t go anywhere.”

“It’s your turn to listen to me.”

“You go back to your country.”

“If you have no country to go back except America, go back to your parents’ country.”

“If your parents have no country other than America, then go back to your ancestor’s country.”

“Understood?”

He spoke to the woman in the boat, then lifted the anchor and left with waving at me.

I waved back to him.

When I spoke to two of my friends, Jin Hong and H Binn about the exchanges during our luncheon at the Dong Bang Grill,

H Binn looked worried and spoke to me,

“Kwan Ho, don’t do that again. It isn’t the best way.”

I don’t disagree with him.
