– Remember the French novel written by Dumas junior? I don’t know what it’s called in English.

– No, I don’t know it.

– It’s a well-known story. There’s even an opera adapted from it, called “La Triviata”. Does that ring a bell?

– That’s the name of a famous opera I don’t know.

– (Sigh.) It’s so frustrating that people don’t know what I know!

– I’m sorry…. But you are the one who knows all the European cultural things, because you’re Chinese, and I’m only English!
