Master Po Meet Mennonite Man

Master Po Meet Mennonite Man - Summer 2010

Master Po meet Mennonite man from landscape company to talk about removing some trees from Temple property. This happen at 10:00 in morning on Wednesday, September 29, 2010. Master Po give man Temple phone number and man say he will call back about a time to start working.
Master Po then leave and not return till 2:30 pm. (Tooth hurty, that is the time that the Chinese man go to dentist too, but that is not important in this story).
At 2:30 Master Po see light blinking on answering machine, but because Master Po not hear very well, he hear this, “This is John, and I’m garble, garble, garble…yada yada yada. Give me a call.” And then man leaves his number. Number also show on caller ID.
Master Po always being polite, call back and tell man’s answering machine that he not hear message very good, and ask man to call back later on in the evening.
Then Mrs. Po come home at 4:30 and listen with good ears to first message. She hear, “This is John, and I’m a gay, white male calling from ___ ______, Give me a call.”
So now it’s Monday evening, and Master Po not know if he was set up as a joke, or if some guy named John is anticipating romance in near future. If this is joke, someone get Master Po good. Stay tuned. Oh, real landscape man have nothing to do with this - I better add that. He won't call till next week.
Next point, as on Seinfeld, Master Po not threatened by unknown man's sexuality. "Not that there's anything wrong with that." Master Po just hope man not try to call again.
