American and Indonesian

Tersebutlah seorang insinyur Indonesia bekerja di Amerika. Sebagai seorang warga Asia, dia punya krisis kepercayaan diri, sehingga terus-menerus berusaha meyakinkan semua orang sono bahwa dia sama baiknya dengan orang Amerika. Sewaktu sedang meeting di kantor, dia bicara dengan bosnya yang orang Amerika:

Indonesian: Bos, I am as good as you.
American: Why?
Indonesian: I have job in US, you have job in US, so we are the same.
American: Make sense, it’s OK.

Sewaktu pulang kantor, di parkiran mobil dia berkata lagi:

Indonesian: Hey, I am as good as you.
American: Why?
Indonesian: I have my own car, you have your own car, we are the same.
American: OK, no problem.

Besoknya, pagi-pagi dia berkata lagi:

Indonesian: Hey, I am as good as you.
American: (Tanpa bertanya lagi) OK, OK, no problem.

Untuk semakin meningkatkan kepercayaan diri, insinyur Indonesia ini segera pindah rumah, satu kompleks dengan orang Amerika tadi. Pagi-pagi, sewaktu mau berangkat ke kantor, di depan pintu rumah, dengan bangganya dia berkata lagi sama orang Amerika tadi:

Indonesian: Hey, now, I am better than you.
American: Why? So far you always tell me that I am as good as you.
Indonesian:Yes, but now I am better than you.
American: Why?
Indonesian: Because, my neighboor is American, but your neighboor is Indonesian.
