Actual conversation had yesterday at my work after a meeting about International Strategy:
Unnamed person (UP): So...what was this Mee-ann-maaar he kept talking about?
Me: Um, you mean Myanmar. It used to be Burma. Now it's called Myanmar.
UP: Oh, so how do you spell that?
Me: M-Y-A-N-M-A-R (In my head thinking, OBVIOUSLY you never read any of the papers that you EDIT before they go out because Myanmar was mentioned multiple times in the paper for this meeting)
UP: You are so good at this
Me: um, thanks.
All I can think is, this is either an empty sentiment, or one that is slightly insulting if the UP thinks that knowing how to spell Myanmar is one of my most impressive traits.
I won't even get into the conversation about how the UP "couldn't find India on a map to save their life"
Welcome to my job.
But on a happier note, I've been thinking about all the countries I still want to visit. At the present time, these are (in continent-based order):
Not too much to ask for, is it? Haha...I better keep working s that I can afford all of this!
Any thoughts about this list? Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the world?
