I was at my bank today; there was a short line. Just one lady in front of me, an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars.

It was obvious she was a little irritated....

She asked the teller, 'Why it change? Yesterday, I get two hunat dolla fo yen. Today I only get hunat eighty? Why it change?'

The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, 'Fluctuations.'

The Asian lady says, 'Fluc you white peopuh too!'

Ryo know you not prejudice so will accept as being as say, little bit wednesday wackiness neh. Ryo is mostly of Nihongi heritage as you know, but self was born in America and so were mother, father and grandparents except for on grandparent who die many sai ago who was born in kokura in southern honshu which is largest of nihongi islands. And Ryo know you to be good man and good friend. If Ryo was in line with you could have make translate for lady and maybe she not be upset. But market change moment by moment neh? No help for this neh? In nihongo language one would say, shigata ga nai, which mean, what could you do, or there is no help for this or nothing to be done, it depend on context and how say as to which meaning is correct.

Your friend alway,

LittleDragon, (Ryo)

Lttle Dragon, people here are not politically correct. With respect to your age, you really should try to grow a thicker skin. You will read a very large assortment of things in here you may not find humorous. Many of us do. If you have any derogatory jokes about white people, please post them and if they are funny, you will be congratulated. Being crude is not a sign of disrespect to others, it is how many of us are. It is male bonding. I didn't get bent out of shape when samD used his moderator powers to change my posts to something other than what I wanted, I took it all in stride. I'm sure I will get some PMs from other members, but I can't stay quiet on this. There are a lot of things here that a 15 year-old probably shouldn't see, but if your father deemed you mature enough to be on here, then you should be mature enough to take things like this as someone's attempt at humor, not a disrespectful comment about a whole race.

Wakatta. I get it and you misunderstand what post to samD. ryo would have laugh too but still would have been nice to lady and try and help. if she nihongi and exchange of yen for dollars at bank suggest she was, and if she visitor or new to America and not speak english very well, then only polite thing to do would be to help translate. Ryo understand what you say. But from what you say you just not understand nature of Ryo handicap. gomen nasai for this. Is ryo fault for not explain to you before. But have been some little bit afraid to talk to you, but you make reasonable statement and it deserve polite and reasonable answer. Ryo have CP, and along with CP alway go some form or other emotional difficulty. Can have knee jerk reaction to thing that cannot help. There is no cure, no medicine and no kind of counseling for this either. Ryo must live with for rest of life. Ryo also understand this so is used to it in some way, but these reaction can be small or great and if great can cause seizure and hurt very very much. Last week Ryo have seizure over thing and pops get very upset. But this is in past now and so Ryo want get beyond this. You have make reasonable statement and Ryo have make reasonable answer to you. Also understand about male bond and about kind of talk here. Am trying best to fit in. Honto, am trying best. Please as uglymech, who turn out to be very nice man and make sincere apology to ryo in pm about thing last week, he turn out to be good man and good father and he and ryo have make amends and make friends now too. If you willing to do same as uglymech, ryo willing also.

I make no apologies, but please know that I am pretty much harmless. I would literally kill or die for any decent American citizen, but will also make fun of anyone, so if you begin to feel offended by any of my posts, realize two things; this is the internet and ultimately doesn't mean anything, and I am almost never serious.

Heyas Clint and samD

I would like for both of you to take a look at this between my son and this other person and let me know what you think please? I think it clearly shows who is the better man. Don't you? I'm proud of my boy here. He did well for himself.

Your friend,

Did anyone else catch the joke about karl rove? LOL. Hey my boys are just as American as any other American and while my oldest is handicapped with Cerebral Palsy, and he has some speaking and writing difficulties, especially with word choices and the construction of proper sentences and a few minor things, he can pronounce the letter L just as good as any udder engrish speaking person.

samD about my boys

Thank you. That's the best thing any father would want to hear. Btw, it's true about my oldest boy Ryo and uglymech. They have really become good friends now. That's amazing how two people can reason things out and overcome their difficulties and make real friends with each other. Lao Tzu says in the Tao te Ching, "...in the end, who is the greater warrior? IS it the warrior who utterly defeats and destroys his enemy, or is it the warrior who takes his enemy and turns him into his friend?" It's pretty obvious to me it's the warrior with the biggest baddest army right? You know? The one with all the great friends.

Your friend,

You didn't ask me but as an "unqualified" observer, I believe your son showed a lot of maturity. It is apparent that he has a had guided instruction in his young life. I wish we had more. RE: Ethnic humor, I'm Scottish (which means Presbyterian or Baptist) and a Highlander (Middle name Brady) to boot. You may be unaware but we have absolutely vicious satire constructed around our clans and religions by "our own people".

Hey, charley9toe
I know this is off the subject, but you are so right about we Scottish-Americans and our brand of humor. We can tell the world that the best jokes or funny stories come from a man with an ice cold wind blowing up his kilt.
Cheers.

A simple plan, carefully rehearsed, and violently executed seldom fails.

Charley, hey thanks

Thank you so much for that. When my boys get home from school today Ryo is really going to appreciate what you said. As a single parent father of two teen age boys, you can understand I'm pretty sure, how difficult it is for myself and the boys who lost their mother almost 9 years ago now, how difficult it is in our family. But I know I'm not anywhere close to being the best father a guy could be. I am very proud of both my sons. Ryo will turn 16 in a week on May 7 and his younger brother will turn 15 two days later on the 9th. Gosh does that make me feel old now. As for political correctness and ethnic humor, I think it's funny and I know my boys love nihongi jokes. They can laugh at themselves like any other boys. I'll give an example. See if you can figure this one out, just for fun. What is the Asian curse?

Koji

PS Thank you for being a good friend to my boy Ryo.

The thing is, LD, that you are taking the joke literally. This is not an issue of ethics and politeness because the bank teller 'should have been' more polite. The incident did not happen. There was no bank teller. There was no lady at the window. The words in quotes were never uttered, never said. It's just a joke hat relies on a 'play on words' that relies on misunderstanding to make the joke. People make jokes here all the time. many of them are puns. If we can no longer make jokes out of fear of offending someone, it will no longer be fun to be here.

Please understand, that my boy is a little different. I'm not asking for special priveledges for him and he wouldn't want that either. Have you gone to my boy's home page here and read his little bio? That's all he's asking. He's also aware that he often doesn't get jokes like that one. He adores and trusts samD. He looks up to him and respects him and often will as him for guidance. And not just samD either. He looks up especially to Victor and to Reaper and Charley and Clint and Greasypaws and his new friend uglymech. Naturally he would have taken samD at his word. He's not quite 16 yet and even though he's very intelligent as I'm sure you have noticed, have noticed if you have followed any of his posts, his social skills are not mature to his age group, that is until he handled this situation yesterday. That was impressive how he handled that. I was quite frankly impressed. I've never really seen him behave in such a mature social level.
Schuyler I promise you it's not a question of worrying about if you offend him or not. There has been only really just 2 incidents that went beyond how anyone should treat a younger person. What is going to happen to the all us old geezers if we don't make the young ones feel safe and welcome here? How can we pass on our beliefs and who would we pass them on to if we drive away the younger members here. I'm very sorry if you think you can't make jokes or have fun on account of my son. Just read his little bio on his home page here and maybe you'll understand a little better. I like to have fun too you know. It's tough raising two teen age boys alone without their mother. The want and need to have fun too. I promise you that everytime my Ryo chan comes here, he learns new things. He passes on things he knows about to others who are interested and mostly he has a ball here. Please take these things into consideration. And please accept my apologies if I or my son have made you feel uncomfortable enough to feel like you have to worry about what you say. I have spoken with both samD and Reaper in private and discussed the matter of removing my son's priveledge to come here and they and I agree while it might take a little extra here or there to deal with Ryo, that in fact it would be best if he stayed. He's made good friends here. Most of the people he interacts with get along with him just fine. Look at the grilling he gets on his topic about the M110 SASS. Those guys ask tough questions and he works hard to dig out, research and find the best answers he can for them because they have shown real interest in the things that interest him. Please accept my sincere apology if my boy has made you uncomfortable in any way. I discuss what happens here with him every day he comes here, to make sure he's ok and that he's done his best to, "be good boy and not be bother to anyone." If you don't believe me then just ask Clint or Reaper or Victor or samD about the PMs he sometimes sends them showing how concerned or worried he might be if he's offended anyone. He's a little afraid of you because he's written several polite and decent replies to some of your posts and you never answered him. So hey, it's a two way street here. But I assure you that nobody in our family wants to be a killjoy. Ok? Do we have this clear now. Please? Also when my sons get home from school today, I'll let Ryo get online you just sit for a while and PM with him back and forth just a little, please. It might just change everything for you. Again, I am very sorry if you think you have to walk on eggshells around my son. You really don't. There's a bad apple or two here. Isn't this true of any forum on the web? I'm far from perfect. I screw up a lot as a father and as a person. My boys are not perfect, but I don't think it's fair to expect a 16 year old handicapped boy to behave like any normal full grown adult. If that's what you want from my boy then I'm sorry, but it's impossible. He doesn't want or need anything special other than a little patience with how he speaks and writes, and to understand that he is handicapped and he's well aware of this, and he is trying his best to fit in as best he can. What more could anyone expect of anybody here? And it looks to me like he is making improvements and maturing more than I would have thought. As to samD's joke, of course he took him at his word. I can't help that. But he didn't do anything or say anything to samD that was wrong or bad or ill intentioned. Those sorts of things are just not in my boy.

but the fact is, you brought a child into an adult place and you are asking a hundred people to conform to the needs of your child rather than asking your child to conform to 100 people. The fact also is that he is being critical of other's posts, perhaps because he doesn't quite understand, but we, in turn, are not allowed to be critical back, as your rather long post proves. I don't want to walk on egg shells around here because we have one guy who needs special treatment. Your job is to toughen your kid up. It's time. You want this place to be the Little Dragon Worship Society. The thing is, we ARE interacting with him and we ARE welcoming to him. But you are insisting on special kid-glove treatment.

I have a great deal of sympathy for the difficulties of parenting. You've mentioned several times now how you are a single parent and the kids lost their Mom a few years ago. OK, we get it now, but you are pandering to the sympathy vote. I give sympathy to you willingly because I lost my wife when my daughter was 12 years old. If you think a father raising boys is difficult, try raising a female. It's a whole new ball game, buddy, especially when her Mom committed suicide. So stop this crap about how hard it is and just do it. You're not the only one that has faced difficulties.

In my opinion it would be a whole lot better if you didn't keep running over to your kid's defense every time someone says something. Let him breathe! Do you think he can develop into a responsible adult if you keep running interference for him? The kid is almost 16 and you're treating him like he was two. He needs to learn to banter and he's never going to learn to banter if you are out front all the time instructing other people how to behave: "Don't do this. Don't do that. Treat him this way." C'mon! Get over it. Get out of the way and let him grow up.

Second I agree with you whole heartedly about not walking on eggshells. I and my boy do understand that you and others have a great deal time and effort invested in the site. My boy loves this place. You interact with him in what I would consider a nearly perfect manner. Keep up the good work please. You don't need to take any nonsense from my son, but I doubt he's ever offered you any. It's just not in his nature. He would be mortified to think he was spoiling or his "pops" was spoiling anything for anyone. Please be yourself and please be open and honest with my son. He's a good kid and I'm pretty sure you know this on your own judgment. Btw, good metaphor with with hot rodders and the horsepower thing. Give my son some credit for trying his best to fit in. But wow this has all gotten a little intense and I think all of us, myself included first need to chill. I must admit Schuyler made a pretty good point of me being overprotective. I will take this to heart and try to do better with this.

That's not my idea of a backyard pet ! When I lived in Spanaway (Pierce county) folks down the street had 3 Burro's in their "backyard" and a Mercedes in the driveway. Further up 176th ST E. was a Llama farm. Man, that is diversity.

Your comments are well thought out and well put and I'm not offended at all. I am so sorry to hear about your wife. I didn't know this. Please don't take me wrong here for what I'm going to say next. I think you missed the whole point of my post to you. I've seen you complain a number of times about the length of some of my posts, but hey I've seen you write some really long ones too. Again, this a two way street. It cannot be all my way, but the flip side of that coin is it cannot be all your way either. My whole point to my last post to you was that we don't want special treatment for my boy. He is working hard to fit in. Give us some credit for this please. Ask around. Look at the posts that he write that are on topic about the things he knows about and the things he wants to learn and you'll see a bright inquisitive and polite young man. How many kids his age do you know who are so decent and so polite. Look at the situation with uglymech and how the two of them worked things out all by themselves with no help from you or me or anyone else. There's a demonstration of some real maturity there. No, we don't ask for special privilege at all. The only thing we've ever asked for is a little patience in understanding how he communicates. That's all he's asked for and that's all I ask for. How is there anything wrong in this? You did miss my point. Somehow you turned it upside down and backwards to suit how you see the situation. I promise you there are plenty of others here who see things differently with by boy than you do. If it will help then you don't speak to my boy and I will tell him not to speak with you, but I promise you this, that would not be what Ryo would want. If possible he would really like to make friends with you. He's laughed at some things you've posted and you have piqued his curiosity on any number of topics that interest him. How is this wrong? I'm sorry, but on your main point of saying that we're asking for special treatment of my boy is just plain wrong. In fact it's just the opposite. I made a post to my boy's topic about the M110 SASS, when to anyone it looked like Reaper and Clint, both good friend of my son were grilling him really hard. I didn't ask them to let up on him. I encouraged both of them to keep up the good work. Their probing and often very interesting questions I felt were a good thing for my boy, and I told them both this in the same post. I asked them to keep up the good work because hard work is good for my boy. He wants to please. I don't want this to be the LittleDragon Worship site. That's complete nonsense. The fact is you just called the whole situation as you see it to please yourself instead of seeing what was really there. Again I have no bad feelings in my heart for you. I am sorry that we disagree about this, but you just called it wrong. I repeat and this is the last time I think I should have to say this. Neither I nor my son are asking for any special privilege or treatment at all other than just a common courtesy of being a little extra patient with how my boy is able to communicate. In fact, once you get used to it, it's easy to understand him. No, I do not accept your premise that my family wants to be killjoys or wants anything extraordinary or out of the way in terms of any kind of special treatment. I thought I had made this clear in my previous post to you, but apparently not. Wakatta ka

Whatever, dude

You're one of these guys who is always right, so I leave you to it. I gave you some good advice. Take it or leave it. It's not just a matter of ME not talking to HIM. This is a COMMUNITY. We interact without talking directly. You can't isolate ME and pretend it all works.

And maybe you will understand that I have taken to heart some of your advice and I promise you I will try and do better about the issue. I don't want to isolate you. I told you in my post my boy would love to make friends with you and interact with you. He finds you both interesting and often funny. Right now I'm not pretending anything works. Ok so you don't want me to tell my boy not to interact with you. Fine. I hope you will interact with him and not feel like you have to walk on eggshells. Btw, this is the second time since I joined the site that you have accused me of being one of those guys who always has to be right. Well you're wrong about that. I can see where I have made mistakes here and I'm thinking about the best way possible to correct those mistake and make improvements. Do you have any further orders for me Sir? That's a joke. It's not intended to be taken literally. Ok? I'm going to lighten up about all of this as you suggest and see what happens. Is this satisfactory to you? You're very right about this being a community. I agree with you 100 percent about that. You're also right about people communicating indirectly too. I thank you sincerely for your efforts in trying to communicate with me. I've have been known to be a little hard headed and I've often been told that I'm like a typical Ares, if you believe in shit like that. Sometimes you gotta whack me over the head with a ball peen hammer to get through to me so I can calm down and listen and learn. Can you fault me for being a concerned parent? I shouldn't think so as you are a parent yourself. Can you fault me for being overprotective of my son? Upon review of many of my posts I must plead guilty.
Oh I can just imagine your difficulty in raising a daughter. I feel sorry for the first boy she brings home and she asks, hey dad can we borrow the car to go to the movies? Just make sure the shotgun isn't really loaded.

PS somehow I think we're beginning to communicate a little better and both of our posts are getting shorter.

I'm still trying to figure out how any of my posts to or toward Little Dragon could have been construed as disrespectful. I can get disrespectful if necessary to demonstrate what it really is. Better yet, look at many, many posts from a wide range of members to Tazor. As for the "special treatment" thing, you are asking for special treatment. Don't get your panties in a twist because I called you on the 5.56 putting out 5,000 ft/lbs. I have not been disrespectful of your son. If you count going off-subject on someone's topic as disrespect, then just about everyone who has started a new topic on here has been severely disrespected as we have actually joked about the ADD-like inability to stay on a single subject here. This entire issue has gotten ridiculous. But hell with it, we don't have anything else to do, right?
