Putting My Foot in My Mouth

Supervisor: So, I will want the data to be collected in this format...

Me: Yes, yes.

Supervisor: I already selected two students and I will send them to you.

Me: Yes, yes.

Supervisor: You tell them what to do and how to collect the data.

Me: Yes, yes.

Supervisor: So I am holding you responsible.

Me: Yes, yes.

Supervisor: Anyway, I think Singaporeans are too rich.

Me: Mmm?

Supervisor: I posted on bbs regarding the job and only Vietnamese and 1 Chinese replied.

Me: Ooo! I like Vietnamese. (Except when they start talking in Vietnamese which provoke instant headache with their fast-speed spouting)

Supervisor: Why?

Me: Vietnamese.. good. Hardworking.

Supervisor: Mmm?

Me: Singaporeans.. no good. They will go out and play.

Supervisor: JUST LIKE YOU Lah! You are talking about yourself, right?

Me: HAHAHAHA! Eh, so clever! No wonder you are a professor.

Pardon me while I try to disengage my foot from my mouth.
