English Is Really Difficult.... For Some

I saw this in the email and, here it is:

*According to that email, it was a true story from the J_____ Embassy.*

A few days ago, Prime Minister Mori was given some Basic English conversation training before he visits Washington and meets President Barack Obama...

The instructor told PM Mori, "When you shake hand with President Barack Obama, please say 'How are you'. Then Mr. Obama will should say, 'I am fine, and you?'. Now, you should say 'Me too'. Afterwards, we the translators will do the work for you."

PM Mori met President Obama.

He mistakenly said "Who are you?"

President Obama was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humour, "Well, I'm Michelle's husband, HA-HA".

PM Mori: "Me too! HA-HA!"

Then there was a long silence in the meeting room.
